94 Comments on "Trump Drops Subtlety In Racist Pitch To Protect ‘Suburbs’ | Rachel Maddow | MSNBC"

  1. Did you saw him at John Lewis’s funeral ? Did he comment anything about civil rights ? That man was what Lewis was fighting against

    • Has he addressed the families of covid19 DEATHS. Any comfort, or reassurance to those families, or to America????? No, no, and no. And he won’t. He keeps stuffing his pockets with taxpayers money, and funneling money into his pockets while we’re dying. HE IS A ANTISOCIAL PERSONALITY DISORDER, AND COVERT NARCISSIST, AND THROW IN DUNNING KRUGER EFFECT. That’s why we’re here. 150,000 + deaths and nothing from the orange clown.

    • @tracy bird nope..but he spoke with Herman cains he should have. it was his stupid Oklahoma rally where Mr Cain caught covid..not trumps fault.. but of course per Donald n team..masks are strongly DIScouraged in his circle..yet hmmmm..wonder y so many positives at the white house?

  2. The Sharpie-Hitler-Finger mustache got it!

    • Woo Cain See, all Dems can do is toss out Ad hominem attacks & sophomoric insults. Never any facts or ability to debate their positions. We are dealing with infantile adult participation trophy winners.

  3. Mr. ” I don’t have a racist bone in my body. ” How do you like him now?!

  4. You’re probably a racist if someone like David Duke starts praising you.
    David Duke, the former Klan leader, who participated in the Charlottesville rally, called it a “turning point” for his own movement, which seeks to “fulfill the promises of Donald Trump.”

    Trump has made it abundantly clear that he is a devout racist. Racist to the point of pathological obsession in fact. Trump is actually offended that anyone would even suggest that he’s NOT a racist. Notice how he never seems to be offended by being called a racist. Whenever he makes racist comments, he doesn’t take them back, he doubles down on them.

      @Agolf Twittler Where you at you Biden ©o©k $u©ker ????

    • Agolf Twittler Is it the tens of thousands homeless in the streets of Once beautiful cities like San Francisco ,completely destroyed by democrats that attracts you ? Is it the rioting going on in democrat cities like Seattle,Portland or st.paul that attracts you to the democrat party ? Maybe it’s the 60 or 70 kids that get killed every single weekend in democrat cities like Chicago, Detroit or Baltimore that attracts you to the democrat party ? Maybe it’s Biden himself that was sending kids to die in wars while sending his kid to Ukraine to become a millionaire that attracts you.Please we can’t handle another democrat hit job ,just because people still are buying their “hope and change” campaign slogans.They pray on the mentally challenged people like yourself who follow the Hollywood crowd ,they must be hip right ? I hate to tell you buddy your not going to be invited to George Clooney’s donation party.Your just going to put someone else in the human waste filled streets or get another black kid killed but hey your cool right ?

    • Kasun Mendis apparently Biden has been waiting for 50 yrs for some miracle to come along.He finally has an excuse to not come out of his basement and answer questions.I think he’s going to find out how many Black people aren’t Black…lol

    • Kasun Mendis | August 1, 2020 at 3:48 AM | Reply

      @John Carter yeah… & it’s look like that I am not Black either….

    • If Biden wins the democrats will start outsourcing tech jobs again! You people are fcking nuts to vote for Biden. You really are sheep to believe the plandemic. It’s H1N1 for real. Shame on the higher ups at the Pentagon and shame on Mattes, Dempsey and the rest. The whole country suffers because of your insane hate Trump mentality!

    The rich white privilleged bubble that donny grew up seeing was never the real America.

    He and the gop are dreaming of a “great” past that never existed and is even more out of touch with the present day.

      @Albin M _”All human beings should not be respected equally but judged.”_
      *I never said that, nor was that my insinuation.*
      This is why talking with you snowflakes is impossible, because all you do is intentionally misrepresent the views of your opponents. You just seem really bothered that the data clearly shows low-income housing areas to be higher in crime. Section 8 housing has historically ruined once-flourishing neigjborhoods. I’m stating facts, and you’re just blowing into a Kleenex. I have no shame in saying I don’t want to live next to low-income housing, and many other people of all races agree with me. Nothing racist about it. It’s not racist to want to reduce your odds of living around crime. It’s called “probability theory”, and humans use it to survive. It’s a product of biological evolution.

    • @Dennis O’Rourke why do you think you’re doing anything different than what you’re accusing me of?

    • Dennis O'Rourke | July 31, 2020 at 12:48 PM | Reply

      @Albin M Are you serious? Was I the only one in this conversation? Because _I’m_ the one stating my views on this in an explicitly clear manner, saying nothing false or unverifiable. And _you’re_ the one giving false summaries of my statements. That’s how.

    • @Dennis O’Rourke When you don’t have an argument to put forward just call someone criticizing you ‘snowflake’.


    • Dennis O'Rourke | August 1, 2020 at 12:21 PM | Reply

      @T Electronix Did you even _read_ the comment exchange leading up to that? Are you _that_ dense?? I gave an explicitly clear, detailed argument. Then Albin M intentionally misrepresented my argument, and I checked him on it. When he intentionally misrepresented me *AGAIN*, I then said “that’s why arguing with you snowflakes is impossible, because you intentionally misrepresent the viewpoints of your opponents”. Go ahead and identify the exact moment when I failed to articulate my argument, dipsh!t. You might have to take a reading comprehension class…

    If Trump is re-elected, then Americans will have to digest they are a racist authoritarian state. It can be stopped and fixed but not if Trump gets four more years. It will be another 15 years to be succeeded by DJTJ…
    Think about it…
    Vote in a massive wave!
    Each and every vote matters…

      Helen Smith if he wins again, he will make it so regardless of what the numerical majority means. I
      Am sure that there were many in apartheid South Africa who felt they were not racist but still lived under racist governance and law.
      It can happen.

      Trump got to the oval office in large part because the country had such an anemic political response.

      The two candidates couldn’t get the support of 50% of registered voters **between them both** .

      So trump gets more like 20% of the electorate and the overall participation is so low that is enough to win states.

    • Michael Bray | July 30, 2020 at 6:15 AM | Reply

      T Electronix that seems to be the malaise of distracted democracy. Voting should be mandatory like in Australia. You demand accountability from politicians, then you should be held accountable for your vote.

    • T Electronix | July 30, 2020 at 6:22 AM | Reply

      @Michael Bray ‘No access to social media if you could have voted….but didn’t.’

      -> Voter turnout highest in US history.

    • Michael Bray | July 30, 2020 at 7:07 AM | Reply

      T Electronix a very compelling proposition!

  9. He and his father also shorted the dimensions by 1ft on government contracted built apts. Multiply that by hundreds and pocket the savings in materials, then discriminate and people day the doj dropped it? Nope try again. Read reality. He settled aka bribed his way out of legal accountability. Crooked as a stick and racist.

  10. What is your political platform mr. trump? Fear… I’m running on fear.

    • If that really is his platform, then I would say to him this: I love this country and the Constitution more than I fear you Mr. Trump.

    • to quote a famous Republican President currently residing in the WH…. “we love the poorly educated”……

  11. Stoking fear of the “other” is one of the principal pillars of Wussolini’s fascist beliefs.

      @karin backstrom Thanks a lot Ma’am.
      I’ve been to Sweden a couple of times, very beautiful and clean.
      We could learn a lot from you over here.
      Stay safe and sound 👍

    • karin backstrom | July 30, 2020 at 2:45 PM | Reply

      @Agolf Twittler Thank you for your response! Nice to hear you liked Sweden.
      Donald´s fans would call Sweden and other countries with the similar policies as we have communism. They have zero knowledge of different political ideologies and of the world outside their own safe bubble.

    • Agolf Twittler | July 30, 2020 at 4:28 PM | Reply

      @karin backstrom You are most welcome Ma’am.
      Seen from the fringes of the far right, Richard Milhous Nixon was a socialist.
      My wife is from Denmark and we usually go to Denmark once a year, and when we have time we visit Norway and Sweden as well.
      If Scandinavia are comprised of communist countries, you could easily persuade me to become a communist.
      We are not going this year of course, due to the Covfefe-45 outbreak in the US we are not alloved to cross your borders, or anybody elses for that matter.
      See you folks next year with a wee bit of luck and hard work on our part.

      Everyone knows you have to wait 3 years 7 months before you can start an urban housing policy.

      I mean, that’s just fact.

      @T Electronix That’s not fair, he has been very busy. Golfing. I mean, who in their right mind would cancel a round of golf just because some people die from the sniffles? He has all the best people, the ones that can get rid of the demon sperm and inject bleach. Of course, if there is a real crisis, like real Americans removing statues of those who wanted to break up the Union, then golf might have to be postponed.

      Bearing in mind all the things Donald Trump has said and done, it speaks volumes about those who still support him. They are pure scum.

      @T Electronix Right, there isn’t much in this world that’s worse than Trump….but Trump supporters are certainly a close second.

    Obama, Obama, Obama. I think Trump is secretly in Love with him. He just can’t stop thinking about about him. It’s got to be Love.

    • @Renee Redding I learned Communism from the time I was big enough to move from highchair to dinner table. barak & michelle are Marxists. Are you naive about what forms us as PERSONS? Communism IS here, and has BEEN here for over a century. You are a Communist, renee (at least in mind and spirit). I’ll pray for you to learn Truth.

    • Renee Redding | July 30, 2020 at 12:04 PM | Reply

      @Ellen Peba you definitely need some prayers as well. You just proved my point, anyone who doesn’t agree with you is a Communist. I can assure you that I’m not but reasoning with you falls on deaf ears. This would be laughable if it wasn’t so sad. Take care

    • @Renee Redding Democrat = Communist. Your parties have been “married” since the 1920’s. Truth hurts, doesn’t it.

      Trump is envious of Obama he know that Obama is a better man than he will ever be…

    • @Bobbie Montgomery Poor English, try again.

  14. It’s always Obama’s fault
    Trumps a traitor

  15. LOL I am a college educated white man in my 20’s, and I would technically qualify for social housing assistance. Utter ignorance.

    • Jules Nagbunga | July 30, 2020 at 4:17 AM | Reply

      It is about classism not racism!

    • @Jules Nagbunga Partially true, not entirely true. In the 1930’s the government came up with a plan to greatly increase home ownership. They provided lower rate mortgages, and other things. However, this specifically excluded blacks. So white home ownership increased, and blacks often borrowed at a higher rate, as one result.

      I remember at one job, I heard my white coworkers talking about their auto loan interest rates. Their rates varied from around 12.5% to 6%. Mine was 19.5%! We were all working the same job position. I understand that there are many factors determining credit. But there are various system practices that make it more difficult for people of color, that make it more difficult to obtain a middle class lifestyle.

Well since you want to make this a race thing a lot of black people live in the suburbs to and they don’t want criminals in their neighborhood.

      Don’t need signs. We know where we can and cannot eat. I should say should not eat because we are not welcome. Wouldn’t trust them with my food anyway. Segregation still exists in this country so I’m not surprised by this at all.

    • I wouldn’t even be surprised at this point. Might as well

    • @MJG from the D yeah, really… my food mixed with chef ramseys books, keeps us nice and happy right i home. My feelings aren’t hurt at all!

    • @MJG from the D we should be eating healthy anyways. Foods just another weapon
