Trump's unabashed racism

Why is there not more exposure of Trump and his unabashed racism, which was on full force during the Wallace interview?

When asked about renaming military bases, Trump responds by going on an incoherent rant about these bases and the fact we won two world wars, but he followed up that rambling by saying he "didn't care what the military said" and "Who are we going to name them after Rev Al Sharpton"??

This type of racist vitriol from Trump isn't surprising. It's like he purposefully chooses to throw out the most outrageous shit just to feed red meat to his base. I love Rev Sharpton, I haven't always agreed with him but that's on me not him, but no one on the left is seriously suggesting renaming a base after him. The only explanation for Trump saying this is to incite his racist base.


There are a plethora of heroes we could choose from to rename these bases. Personally, I think Ft Hood should be renamed Ft Audie Murphy. You could rename Bragg for any number of true heroes, of all races, and it would better represent to spirit of that base than a confederate general who is widely regarded as a failure as a leader and strategist.

But no, Trump chooses to be a fucking racist prick by throwing out "Rev Sharpton", because he knows his base will eat that shit up. Screw him and wish he was being called out more for this crap.

But one of my favorite quotes from the weekend is from Al Franken: "Trump is losing support amongst older racists". Lmao

3. The Rev. Sharpton should be honored.......

When Nixon's "hate list" came out I remember certain politicians, national news journalists, and celebrities who were mad and offended that they were not on that list!
