Worst president EVER!

23 ( +36 / -13 )

Disgusting, plain and simple.

Donald Trump is, with every tweet, proving again and again that not only is he tone deaf, but he's flat out racist as well.

19 ( +30 / -11 )

Mr. Wallace didn’t discover it, nor did he request an investigation. It was reported to him.

Yet he still needs to apologize? Because he’s black? It’s the obvious implication.

27 ( +35 / -8 )

Different generation, out of step he still has the belief that a text and a pointy-white hood are somehow the same. Perhaps too much time in his sun bed has fried the Nurons that generate empathy.

7 ( +14 / -7 )

Will he have a complete mental breakdown before the election?

14 ( +21 / -7 )

he,s lashing out at everything lately, he doesn,t even care about pretending he,s not a racist anymore... because he knows... things are changing ...

18 ( +24 / -6 )

A desperate con man wraps himself in the Confederate flag...

This is how Trump spends his days, tweeting stupid crap about matters that are really none of his business, while ignoring everything that is his responsibility.

Is it any wonder the country is a mess?

24 ( +31 / -7 )

his walk off song for future rallies should be Dazed and Confused. He really is making less and less sense as the days go by....

Trump: Unifying the country with his excellent leadership qualities since 2017. The country most definitely is not the most racially divided it's been since slavery.

1 ( +14 / -13 )

My goodness, will he not learn and stay away from Twitter?

With every inane post he further alienates American voters who will kick him out of office come this November.

14 ( +21 / -7 )

Trump had tweeted in 2013 that then-President Barack Obama “should not be telling the Washington Redskins to change their name” because “our country has far bigger problems! FOCUS on them, not nonsense.”

132,000 and counting Donald and hundreds more every day.

15 ( +20 / -5 )

he doesn,t even care about pretending he,s not a racist anymore...

That's because at this point, his only hope is that there are enough people willing to excuse his racism to get him elected.

13 ( +20 / -7 )

I cannot wait until Trump is looking for a new job. I don't want Biden either. Obama! Where are you?

7 ( +14 / -7 )

When you think Trump can't lower in the foolishness category, he never fails to disappoint.

What possible difference to him does it make if a sports team (hint-privately controlled capitalist enterprise) wants to change it's name?

White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany defended the president’s decision to wade into the Wallace case,

Of course she did. She knows what Trump's doing provides one more distraction from the growing number of pandemic deaths and illnesses.

She knows the Trump economy will probably never again see the stability it had during President Obama's terms in office.

She also knows Trump's evil clown show distracts from Barr/McConnell etal efforts to further weaken the republic's balance and separation of powers provisions to allow an authoritarian executive even greater control while at the same time Trump's admin continues to weaken environmental protections and worker and consumer protections.

Federal authorities ruled last month the noose had been hanging since October and was not a hate crime

but this article sure makes it sound like it was a noose ther was purposely put there to racially target one individual.

Not just a rope tied I n the shape of a noose used to pull down a door. That was there in that exact shape nearly 9 months before Bubba was.

-17 ( +7 / -24 )

Washington Redskins. now both names need to be changed as Washington was a slave owner.

-14 ( +8 / -22 )

but this article sure makes it sound like it was a noose ther was purposely put there to racially target one individual.

Not to me. Nor to those involved, according to how I understood the story. Perhaps the poster's above interpretation reflects the reality Trump supporters have long run out of defenses for his racist actions and instead are coming up with imaginary 'enemies', e.g. something they cll 'the media' to point to and away from the idiocy of their main male.

15 ( +17 / -2 )

but this article sure makes it sound like it was a noose ther was purposely put there to racially target one individual.

Lol no it doesn't. It clearly states the noose had been there for months and that both the FBI and NASCAR found it wasn't a hate crime. Or any crime for that matter.

Anyway, why should the president be demanding Wallace apologize? Doesn't he have a country to run or something?

15 ( +17 / -2 )

Trump's delirium twitterens is markedly worsening and his manifest dysfunctionality in his job as Potus, egregiously illustrated by his recent erratic and rambling "American carnage" speechifying, indicate irreversible deteriorating mental capacities. The pols failed to remove him by impeachment and lacked the civic courage to apply the 25th. So now Trump's twisted narcissism will leave him no choice but to end it all in his bunker without firing a shot: get ready for his resignation, folks!

8 ( +11 / -3 )

Ah more racist fuel on the fire to distract from the fact that he isn’t doing his job while the country is being destroyed by a pandemic and economic disaster that he allowed to explode. Sorry Trump, everyone already knows you are a racist piece of garbage without you needing to constantly remind us.

9 ( +12 / -3 )

Looks like Trump is wrong on the noose.

Worst president EVER!

That would be Obama.

Donald Trump is, with every tweet, proving again and again that not only is he tone deaf, but he's flat out racist as well.

How come Kanye West, who is running against Trump, isn't saying that?

Will he have a complete mental breakdown before the election?

Biden probably will.

"Trump won't wear a mask, but he has no problem with a white hood."

Nope. He's denounced the KKK.

The current idiot in the WH is trying to hold on to his racist base and distract from his failure by creating a culture war.

You've got Trump mixed up with the rioters and anarchists.

Republicans and prisons!

Democrats for prison!

When you think Trump can't lower in the foolishness category, he never fails to disappoint.

You're confusing Trump with Biden.

I cannot wait until Trump is looking for a new job.

You're going to have to wait until Jan. 20, 2025.

*I don't want Biden either. *Obama! Where are you?

By law Obama can't be president again. Whew!

What's wrong with Biden? He was Obama's loyal vice president for eight years.

-28 ( +4 / -32 )

Because Bubba went on TV after all that investigation and support and said the opposite. It was a noose, he felt it was directed at him, all the parts found not true, he still said it was true. To him.

don lemon of CNN didn’t even know who he was, thought he was Bubba Watson the golfer.

But can’t let a good hoax go to waste.

-19 ( +3 / -22 )

but this article sure makes it sound like it was a noose ther was purposely put there to racially target one individual.

Not sure your reading the article properly - it states very clearly that it was there for months and used to close a door.

Perhaps you read what you want you read.

14 ( +15 / -1 )

How come Kanye West, who is running against Trump, isn't saying that?

I don't care what Kanye West has to say on the matter, honestly. It doesn't deflect from the fact that Donald Trump is catering to racism at a level not seen since even before Barry Goldwater in 1964. What Kanye West has to say on the matter is irrelevant.

Ah more racist fuel on the fire to distract from the fact that he isn’t doing his job while the country is being destroyed by a pandemic and economic disaster that he allowed to explode.

The liberal Democrats are the ones who aren't doing their job and allowing the cities they run to go to hell.

Sorry Trump, everyone already knows you are a racist piece of garbage without you needing to constantly remind us.

Amazing how Trump has done more for blacks in 3 years than Biden has ever done.

I'll try to be back in time to refute more nonsense that is sure to come.

-14 ( +4 / -18 )

Hey look! Over there! Yes, that [shiny thing that will dominate a news cycle]! Pay attention to that! Don't pay attention to my disastrous handling of the pandemic! I'll give you a new toy to play with every tweet! Isn't this fun!?

14 ( +17 / -3 )

Every other sentence but that one sentence seemed to imply a different story.

if it was just a piece of rope fashioned into a shape of a noose to pull down a door at least 9 months prior.....why couldn’t Bubba just say sorry for pushing a race baiting narrative and thank people for their support.

but he had to go on tv and insist it was still a noose, not a door pull, and only grudgingly admit it wasn’t directed at him.

-16 ( +3 / -19 )

“Not just a rope tied I n the shape of a noose used to pull down a door.”

So it was a noose. When has anyone not in kkk world EVER tied a garage door pull-down in a noose knot?

And why would Trump need the man who did not report or investigate it to apologize?

the more you try to explain it away, the worse it looks.

17 ( +21 / -4 )

Trump is like the elderly uncle who embarrasses the whole family when he makes an appearance at weddings and family parties. Humoured but everyone is happy when he leaves.

Although for someone who isn't part of three American family, it's fascinating to watch. In case he wins the election, I've got another four years supply of popcorn ready for part 2 of the freak show.

11 ( +12 / -1 )

The man got nothing better to do! Always looking for someone to blame, always looking for his benefits!

I would not be surprised if the the Americans will elect him again!

Born with millions, but needs his mental disorder to be fed with adulation. Just another politician. With a rasism bent, we are not like him so he doesn't care, if you have big boobs he might take notice. $300,000 right there.

Amazing how Trump has done more for blacks in 3 years than Biden has ever done.

According to some stats released by the Trump admin, some of which might be believed by some of his followers.

Why is he pandering to a White audience, particularly White Americans with White nationalist views, and defending racism directed not only at Blacks but also the 100,000,000 'non-White' Americans.

Sounds like the same old same old dictator's divide and conquer. But for whom is he dividing? What 'foreign' states benefit from an ever weakening USA.

Except this wasn't a hoax. Other than the fact that both cases involve black men, they're nothing alike. Smollett made the whole thing up and then reported it.

In Wallace's case, nothing was made up. There really was a noose. It was reported by a third party. According to the article, out of 1,684 stalls at 29 raceways, only 1 was fashioned into a noose. While it seems Wallace was targeted, it is quite odd to fashion a pull out into a noose.

When you think Trump can't lower in the foolishness category, he never fails to disappoint.

What possible difference to him does it make if a sports team (hint-privately controlled capitalist enterprise) wants to change it's name?

Every thing he tweets, every word he says, every game he plays, everything he does, the world is watching him!

Every single day, every vow he breaks, exposes his true colors in full living color. He rants and rants - exposing his prejudice, bigotry, hatred, racism clearly. His use of Nazi hate symbols in tweets, uncouth racist jokes about the coronavirus, sheer utter hypocrisy is obvious to all. And note that with the exposure of Russia paying the Taliban to kill American soldiers, Trump has said not one word about it. Not one criticism of his Russian masters. What does that spell?

9 ( +10 / -1 )

Blacklabel: "he was a Democrat then."

So, you admit he was flat out wrong at the time. Funny thing is, though, he's reaffirmed and stood behind it AS President, and as a Republican. Oops! I mean, I know you are desperate BLacklabel -- after all, you're flat out supporting a racist and his racism -- but even YOU can do better than that.

Was Trump not a Democrat until around 2015? Clintons were at his wedding 15 years ago, remember?

so dont bring me some 1970s nonsense when the topic is 2020.

Denial, deflection, and delusion.

-15 ( +1 / -16 )

no, I admit he was a Democrat.

There is no racism here in this incident. The FBI sent 15 agents and found nothing racial or directed at this person. a simple rope, serving the purpose of letting one put their hand inside it to pull down a door. That had been there for months before Bubba ever thought of using that garage.

So, you admit he was flat out wrong at the time.

-15 ( +1 / -16 )

Blacklabel: "Was Trump not a Democrat until around 2015?"

So, go ahead, admit Trump was wrong in saying and doing what he did.

Other reports say it wasn’t a noose, it was a handle to a garage opener which every driver has in their garage as well.

-12 ( +2 / -14 )

doesnt matter, if he did, he did it as a Democrat so I wouldnt care.

I only care what he has done since 2016. everything prior to that was already brought up ad nauseum, yet he was still elected President.

So, go ahead, admit Trump was wrong in saying and doing what he did.

takeda.shingen: "Lololol So Trump was a racist when he was a Democrat, but magically became not racist when he became a Republican?"

That's how racists think it works. Of course, none of them keep the same handles on here for very long when their man loses, and then pretend they never liked him under the new handles, but hey.

or the actual fact; He was neither a racist then, nor now.

Lololol So Trump was a racist when he was a Democrat, but magically became not racist when he became a Republican? Hilarious.

Why is he tilting forward again in the photo? There is something strange in the way he always stands. His centre of gravity is most probably in his big belly, so I'm surprised he doesn't tip over. Heavy bone spurs in the heel?

10 ( +10 / -0 )

Just no one ever called him a racist when he was on your "team" or until after he became your political enemy.

Cause thats how Dems roll as usual practice. Certain behavior is fine on your team (Ahem....Bill Clinton) but not fine for the other team. Trump just complicates your narrative because he changed teams. You so want to accuse him of all these things, but he did them all....when he was on your team. thats a problem for you, I know.

-14 ( +1 / -15 )

Other reports say it wasn’t a noose, it was a handle to a garage opener which every driver has in their garage as well.

Thats not what the article says. All of the stalls have pull downs. Only 1 out of 1700 had a noose in the shape of a noose.

You judge for yourself. Does that look like a pull down or a noose:

Ah, so you stand behind what he said of the Central Park Five, then? Even AFTER they were found innocent? But the African American Bubba Wallace, who had nothing to do with the news being found or the FBI's role in it -- he's guilty! right? The white man is innocent in saying the innocent black men should be murdered, but the black man who was told there was a noose, HE should apologize! Great arguments, Blacklabel! Your truly do yourself and the Trump supporters credit.

Not true. And anyway it was YOU who pointed out he was "a Democrat then", in regards to his actions on the Central Park Five, and therefore suggesting it related to party, and that he's changed now. Funny thing, though, again he stood behind his comments in June of 2019 as President, and a Republican.

Monty, Americans chose Clinton. The Electoral College chose Trump. That is also what happened in the Bush vs. Gore election. Two of the last three American presidents were chosen by the Electoral College, not the American people.

One might be forgiven for daydreaming about what a better world this would be if Bush II and Trump had not been given the presidency despite losing the vote.

if its a noose, why was it there in October 2019? no one knew Bubba would be using that exact garage in May 2020.

It is a rope, tied into a knot that makes it easy to pull down a door. If a noose knot is so bad why are there tutorials all over the internet showing people how to tie one and telling us its used for fishing, secure a rope to a pole, looped over an animal to control it, door pulls and other useful purposes? are they lying to us?

enjoy your narrative, I guess muh Russia narratives ran out again, so back to "racist".

That goes both ways.

Every single day, every vow he breaks, exposes his true colors in full living color. He rants and rants - exposing his prejudice, bigotry, hatred, racism clearly.

Hardly, the left just hate that they can’t control this guy. If liberals were so honest when it comes to race, why do they bring and use race as a constant narrative, why do they believe social justice applies to people that have dubious past, but refuse to march for little children that die from black on black crime? Their lives matter. This has nothing to do with Trump and the empty false accusation of Trump being a racist is falling on deaf ears. No other President has signed a law for criminal justice a crime bill that Biden support and wrote. If you want to see racism in action, go to any black community under Democrat leadership, you will see racism at its fullest.

His use of Nazi hate symbols in tweets

He didn’t, it was a “retweet.”

, uncouth racist jokes about the coronavirus, sheer utter hypocrisy is obvious to all.

Biden said, “if you don’t vote for me, you ain’t black....hmmmm..”

And note that with the exposure of Russia paying the Taliban to kill American soldiers, Trump has said not one word about it.

Because he said, he wasn’t informed

-12 ( +1 / -13 )

because your team is claiming racist actions during his time as a Democrat. I dont agree, but if you want to claim him as a "racist Democrat" along with Biden in the 1970s, go ahead.

I only care about 2016 and beyond.

Lolol so why would it matter if he were a Democrat then?

trump turning openly racist isn't just bad for his presidency , I think he has given up on that, its going to be bad for his business.

The tweet came after Trump used a pair of Independence Day speeches to dig deeper into America’s divisions by accusing protesters who have pushed for racial justice of engaging in a “merciless campaign to wipe out our history.” The remarks served as a direct appeal to the Republican president’s political base, including many disaffected white voters, with less than four months to go before Election Day.

Welcome to the Donald Trump channel - where you can watch hate, hate, and more hate every day....

Interspersed with a Stormy Daniels movie....

The perfect channel for those that have Confederate flag drapes in their house, with "noose" curtain chords...

Endorsed by David Duke, Steve King, and Medal of Freedom winner Rush Limbaugh...

The channel of "very fine people" everywhere...

Why on earth would Trump be spending time talking about this?

Instead of putting primary attention on the biggest health crisis in a century, he's out dividing the country as usual, but time's running out on old racists like him. Throw a few old bones out for a rallying cry and hope all the other old racists may get out and wag their tails but the majority of the people are not with you. November will be a time of reckoning for America.

Yep. Just check out support of Trump and GOP policies from younger people. Horrific numbers for Republicans.

I figure Trump is their last hurrah. As more time passes their base gets older and smaller.

Blacklabel: "everything and everyone I dont like is "racist", say liberals."

Awww... the victim card. No, bud, and what you fail to see time and again (as white supremacists like Stephen King, who deny anything is racist) is that we call racism what it is: Trump calling on the sole black man in Nascar to apologize for something he neither did, nor was responsible for in any way after in it being reported, or him calling for the death of five innocent black men even AFTER they were found innocent, or him writing a "C" next to black people who wanted housing contracts, him saying Mexicans are rapists, or other nations are bumhole countries, etc. The list goes on and on. Only you defend it -- well, you and other trump supporters and white supremacists and bigots.

"Im not living my life that way, no time for that."

Yeah, we know how you're living your life -- a Maga hat on and cheers to things like racist "K-flu" statements, demands black people apologize for what was done to them, calling BLM a racist movement, defending the "good people on both sides", etc. Nothing but the good life.

So, go ahead, admit Trump was wrong in saying and doing what he did.

doesnt matter, if he did, he did it as a Democrat so I wouldnt care.

I only care what he has done since 2016. everything prior to that was already brought up ad nauseum, yet he was still elected President.

No better definition and admission that Trump-world is nothing but a cult.

It's all about the "label" - Dem or Repub - it's nothing about the substance and actions...

Trump may have engaged in a consistent pattern of racism and discrimination for over 40 years, but they don't care since his "label" then was Dem...

Now, when he gives the Medal of Freedom to an avowed racist, says some white supremacists are "very fine people", and tweets out hate speech about Black Lives Matter, it's OK since his label is Repub...

Irrelevant. None of this has anything to do with Trump. Or his racism. Pointing to others misdeeds changes nothing about Trump.

Yes lets continue to use dubious incidents or 40 years ago when he was a Democrat to continue the "Trump is a racist" story.

While ignoring any and all others forms of racism from anyone but him (or any other Republican). Keep that laser focus on that supposed racist Trump!

It worked so well in 2016, didnt it?

A huge unspoken number of people are ready to vote for Trump who, flawed as he is, is the only one stopping the breakdown of America. This unspoken number are afraid to come forward and admit it because they will get beat up in the streets, will lose their jobs etc..But come voting time, there will be nothing to stop them!

Of course not. Do you support the Biden crime bill? Did you think he was out of line for his past racist statements and even the latest “if you don’t vote for me, you ain’t black?” Or the fact that Democrats won’t stop the Mob from destroying our history and culture, but won’t remove the statue and painting of Robert Byrd in the halls of Congress.

Got it - you agree and support Limbaugh saying to a black female caller, "take that bone out of your nose and call me back"...

Liberals support Biden and blacks support Biden, the man that called them Predators and that we need to bring them up so they have our morals and way of life.

Simply done for the most easily frightened, those looking for this week's 'thems' to fear. All they have to do is switch on radio to hear their hero Limbaugh or watch cable TV to get Hannity along with dozens of others. Radio and TV are awash with talking mouths getting rich selling hate and fear to the intellectually vulnerable. For those who can read all they have to do is scan headlines of one of the many far right outlets. And they can also follow Trump and ilk on Twitter.

So we should watch Don Lémon and Cuomo and listen to regurgitated liberal, we hate Trump “blah, blah” talking points?

And liberals never miss a beat or letting anyone forget it.

For those who can read all they have to do is scan headlines of one of the many far right outlets. And they can also follow Trump and ilk on Twitter. 

And the liberal lemmings follows AOC and believe the only way the country can come back to greatness and prosperity is by ushering in the GND.

Very true - it's actually larger when you add in the far-right conservative media outlets who spread and cater to this feeling of powerlessness and fear of everything - all while bilking the poor folks watching with more fear-stoking books and "premium" memberships....

There is about 30% of the American populace that feel helpless and powerless - and are perfect candidates for a message that says "The Libs" - which basically means anyone who doesn't feel helpless - are to blame for everything wrong today. That these Libs will take away even more of what they don't - and they need to arm themselves and stock away as much TP as they can for the great reckoning that will come. See Karen and Ken on their lawn pointing their guns at peaceful protesters...

Dunno, looking at all the white people attacked, why wouldn’t you feel powerless, why wouldn’t you live in fear?

all while bilking the poor folks watching with more fear-stoking books and "premium" memberships....

That’s great for Trump and great for the gun industry.

There is about 30% of the American populace that feel helpless and powerless - and are perfect candidates for a message that says "The Libs"

I believe the number is way larger, but people don’t want to fight, get called a racist, so people will quietly just go to the polls and vote for Trump

which basically means anyone who doesn't feel helpless - are to blame for everything wrong today.

"When I saw that mob coming through the gate with their rage and their anger, I thought that we would be overrun in a second," he said. "By the time I was out there with my rifle, the people were 20 or 30 feet from my front wall ... I was literally afraid that within seconds they would surmount the wall and come into the house, kill us, burn the house down and everything that I had worked for and struggled for for the last 32 years."

I find it very strange that so many defend and support Biden, but under his bosses regime, no talk of changing teams names, removing statues, cancel this and that. Why not? They had 8 years to do it and got so much done for the LGBTQ community.
