We always thought if it looked like a duck and quacked like a duck… it’s a duck!
But Donald Trump is still trying to duck being labeled a racist.
Yesterday during a discussion about his roasting at the White House Correspondent’s Dinner, CNN’s Don Lemon asked Trump about being called a racist and his decision to use the term “the blacks” to refer to black people, and Trump responded by saying the accusations of racism are just a diversion tactic:
“I am a wonderful person as far as you would be concerned as to race. And I think everybody that knows me knows that.”
Trump also repeatedly said that people who know him “would laugh” at the suggestion that he is racist.
“I have many, many black friends who said to me, ‘absolutely not a problem.’ … The fact is, I wanna focus on jobs, the economy … that nations are laughing at us and taking our money and taking our jobs and ripping us off.”
Huh? What? Answer the freaking question and stop trying to convince us that there are black people who like you!!!
