So if Trump doesn't "kid", does that mean that it actually wasn't just locker room talk?

He doesn't have a racist bone in his body, nope.

Trump tweets videos of black men attacking white people, asks ‘Where are the protesters?’


By Tim Elfrink, The Washington Post
updated on June 23, 2020


As protesters demanding an end to police brutality and systemic racism again clashed with authorities outside the White House on Monday night, the president took to Twitter to ask why he didn’t see a different kind of demonstration instead.

Above a retweeted video of a black man repeatedly punching a white department store employee, Trump wrote, “Looks what’s going on here. Where are the protesters?”

He also retweeted another account that asked “Where are the protests for this?” with a clip of a black man pushing a white woman into the side of a subway car.

“So terrible!” Trump added above that video.


To critics, Trump’s tweets implied that individual crimes by black men are equivalent to the systemic police violence against people of color that has sparked weeks of nationwide protests. The tweets also come days after Trump repeatedly used racially offensive stereotypes at his Tulsa campaign rally, a preview of the “racially inflammatory messaging” he’s likely to use in his bid for a second term, The Washington Post’s Jose A. Del Real reported.

False claims about the prevalence of violent black-on-white crime have been a hallmark of white supremacist websites, the Southern Poverty Law Center found in a 2018 study. Those sites radicalized Dylann Roof, who killed nine black churchgoers in Charleston in 2015 while falsely claiming in a manifesto that huge numbers of “black on White murders got ignored.”

Trump has spread similarly untrue allegations before, notably in 2015 when he tweeted an image of a dark-skinned man with a gun alongside “racially loaded and incorrect murder statistics,” as PolitiFact found in a “pants on fire” rating of the tweet.

Trump’s tweets on Monday highlighted disturbing videos of seemingly random attacks by black men against white people.

The first, which originated from an account that regularly spreads anti-Muslim and anti-immigrant content, shows a 2019 attack in a Brooklyn subway station. A 28-year-old suspect described as a well-known “transit nuisance” was quickly arrested.

The second, retweeted from conservative blogger Matt Walsh, shows an assault inside a Flint Township, Mich., Macy’s store on June 15. Some claimed on social media that the white employee had used a racial slur before the attack, the Detroit Free Press reported, but Macy’s told the paper its own investigation found that “the attack was unprovoked.”

Flint Township police are still trying to find the two men in the video, the Free Press reported.

Critics lambasted Trump on Twitter, questioning the true message behind the tweets.

It's pretty amazing. It's hard to know exactly if Trump's team is giving him this advice or he's just decided this. But it was clear from the "rally" and from this, that the "reset" and new launch of the campaign is to go for racist incitement.
He doesn't have a lot of options against Biden.
You have a white male with a normal name, grew up poor, a model family man, that is attracting minority, female, suburban and older voters in a big way, and also some non-college voters.
His hits on Biden with health and with China won't land with these people. He can't label him a socialist or leftist. Any racial misteps Biden has made in the past is minuscule to Trump's brazen white nationalism.

So this is what he's going with. During an "awakening" of the public, on racial injustice, and support for BLM and police reform in the 70%'s. This is what he thinks is a good path.

He is locking himself in, to not just his broader base, but mostly the core of his base. It's incredible to watch the self-destruction.


Side note. They did a survey of voters in Jacksonville FL, the county that Trump won by 2 points, and is now showing Biden by 10 points.
They were asked about Trump and Covid and mask wearing, etc... They responded that Trump made them feel anxious, upset and disappointed. Biden characteristics were "informed, understanding, leader and smart. "

Very... cakey.

Although I must say. That failed rally, a long days sweat, screaming at staffers, putting head in hands, actually improved his hair quite a bit.

And people joked about his makeup being why he wouldn't wear a mask. But I think that really may be true. Fun to know that those "tough" MAGA's who call people snowflakes, worship a guy that wears Marilyn Manson level makeup.

Wait.

Do ... do people think Aunt Jemima was a real person?







The upside is, going full racist this early means Twump knows he’s got nothing.

You can never let your guard down, but I am now thinking more and more that he will get absolutely humiliated at the polls. The reason I say this, aside from his various current failures, is that anecdotally, all these fund managers and investor class that my husband interfaces who care about only tax cuts and business deregulation can't stand the man and are not going to vote for him. They think Biden will be acceptable (probably not great news for the left) and are totally committed to getting Trump out and removing the 24/7 state of uncertainty in the markets, not to mention the handicapping of US businesses on the world stage given COVID.

He has his insane deplorables left, but the others have already departed the ship.

To be fair, people like this are likely a very small percentage of his voting base. Hedge fund managers aren't going to swing any states.

Seemed like a pretty good night for the left wing in the primaries. Knocked out some establishment picks, most notably Eliot Engel.
