Pastor says Trump’s denials are ‘precisely what racists do’: ‘It takes an a**hole to know what a sh*thole is’












During a panel discussion on MSNBC, host Stephanie Ruhle noted that Trump had recently declared himself “the least racist person” after he reportedly used “shithole” or a similar term to describe African countries

“We’ve heard that before,” Thompson explained. “We know that’s not true. Who even talks that way? I’m beginning to think [he is racist].” “Trump plays those [racial] cards and it may be even to sabotage this whole [immigration] deal,” he added.




“Because he’s sending a message to that base, to his base that this is what I really think about the people we’re discussing, working out a deal for, providing DACA for and what have you.” According to Thompson, Trump’s actions are “precisely what racists do.” “Not to mention the fact, it takes an A-hole to know what a S-hole is,” the pastor pointed out. “What is the definition of an S-hole country?” Thompson asked Ruhle. “Does it contain people who are tired or poor or huddled masses yearning to breathe free? Because if that’s what he means, that’s the same thing everyone wants. A better life. That’s what the Statue of Liberty cries out.” “What is the definition of an S-hole country?” Thompson asked Ruhle. “Does it contain people who are tired or poor or huddled masses yearning to breathe free?

’Ridiculous!’: CNN’s Boykin shouts down GOPer over ‘nonsense’ claim that Trump makes black people’s lives better












According to conservative Carrie Sheffield, Republicans and the president could do better reaching out to minorities, but overall things have improved for them during the Trump administration.

“I would love to see more unifying language coming from the Republican leadership, I’d love to see it coming from the president,” Sheffield explained.




But I do think it is also important to look again at the policies and see how the lives of African-Americans have been improved.” “This nonsense that is going on out here from Carrie, this is ridiculous,” Boykin explained as her turned to Trump’s bogus claims about black unemployment. “He lied about the African-American unemployment rate!” Boykin strongly asserted. “And then as soon as he got in office, he inherited the declining unemployment numbers and he took credit for what President Obama did. That’s disgusting, it’s abhorrent and the president should apologize to President Obama, not only for the lies about the birth certificate, but about the lies about the African-American community that he continues to spread!” “And you Carrie, to sit here and defend this, when you should know because you’re a smart person who studied the statistics, you should know that the president did nothing, has not lifted a finger to help the African-American community,” Boykin lectured. “I don’t want to hear any nonsense about taking credit for things that President Obama did unless he acknowledges that President Obama had some role in doing that.”

Keith Boykin Loses it On CNN Guest For Suggesting Trump is Improving Lives of African-Americans














Keith Boykin blew up on fellow CNN political commentator Carrie Sheffield after she claimed the policies of President Donald Trump were helping to improve the lives of African-Americans.

“I would love to see more unifying language coming from the Republican leadership, I’d love to see it coming from the president,” Sheffield first said, during a discussion of the reports that Trump called immigrants from Africa “people from shithole countries.”


   

“But I do think it is also important to look again at the policies and see how the lives of African-Americans have been improved,” Sheffield continued. “This nonsense that is going on out here from Carrie. Carrie, this is ridiculous,” Boykin started, pointing out that unemployment rate for African-Americans was “cut in half” under President Barack Obama, all while Trump decried those numbers during his 2016 campaign as “fake.” “He lied about the African-American unemployment rate!” Boykin exclaimed. “And then as soon as he got in office, he inherited the declining unemployment numbers and he took credit for what President Obama did. That’s disgusting, it’s abhorrent and the president should apologize to President Obama, not only for the lies about the birth certificate, but about the lies about the African-American community that he continues to spread!” “And you Carrie, to sit here and defend this, when you should know because you’re a smart person who studied the statistics, you should know that the president did nothing, has not lifted a finger to help the African-American community.” “I don’t want to hear any nonsense about taking credit for things that President Obama did unless he acknowledges that President Obama had some role in doing that,” he continued. “That’s what’s so indefensible.”

Watch trump admit that he is racist












Speaking to reporters in Florida after a dinner with House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy at Trump International Golf Club, the president was asked, “What do you say to all the people who think you’re a racist?” “No, no I’m not a racist,” Trump replied, as a weary looking McCarthy stared away blankly.




   

“I am the least racist person you have ever interviewed, that I can tell you,” he added. Well that settles it! The tough question for the president comes after the Washington Post reported last week that Trump derided immigrations from Haiti, El Salvador and other African nations as “people from shithole countries” in an Oval Office meeting on immigration.

Joy Reid rails against the Republican Party: They’re ‘dead from a moral point of view












In an interview with SiriusXM Radio host Dean Obeidallah, Reid explained that the GOP has essentially sold out on its principals when President Donald Trump was elected

“The Republican Party is dead from a moral point of view and has been since they threw in their lot in with Trump,” Reid told Obeidallah. “They lined up behind him [Trump] like the North Korean military,” she continued




They march behind him in lock step as if Trump and his family are the Romanovs and they are the Politburo.” Meanwhile, the Republican Party has decided it will support whomever they’re required to, so long as they get their tax cut. “They are behaving [Congressional Republicans] like the Soviet Kremlin…it’s pathetic,” Reid said. “The [GOP] Party has died long ago and they are just dragging their corpses through the graveyard trying to pick up as many pennies from the tax cut and kill as many social programs as they can on the way to the political grave.”

Round 2: Joy Reid spits fire in ongoing feud with booted pastor who suggested she ‘just move to Haiti’












AM Joy host Joy Reid broke from her a planned panel scheduled for her Saturday morning show to address a Twitter video posted moments before from a guest she had earlier kicked off the show for refusing to answer any questions.

“She’s always been very kind and I think fair to me,” Burns said in the clip shown on AM Joy. “But I think, obviously in the interview that you just saw if you watch Joy



But I think, obviously in the interview that you just saw if you watch Joy, that she should just move to Haiti since she’s more concerned about Haitian immigrants than black Americans here in poverty.” “Wow” Reid responded. “Let me address you. sir, I always do try to be kind to the people who are on the show, but we’re not friends. You’re somebody that I am glad that you’re willing to come on and I do try to be fair to you and I’m glad that you can see that.” “As to the idea that I need to move to Haiti to be concerned about the people there; sir, you are a pastor,” she continued. “And in the Bible — you love to quote the Bible. Let me quote you John. It says: ‘Whoever sees his brother in need and closes his heart against him, how does the love of God abide in him?'” “I too am the child of immigrants and African-Americans and people who consider ourselves African-Americans, some of us have parents who are immigrants,” she added. “I hope that you will open your heart to the people of this world, to the people of this country and do your duty as a Christian to love your neighbor as yourself,” she stated before sarcastically adding, “But thanks for sharing your views.”

Joy Reid Goes Off on Pastor Mark Burns in Fiery Clash Over Trump: You’re ‘Wasting My Time’












Allowing that he perhaps did say it, Burns said such comments would be “preposterous,” but he went on to say people are too focused on Trump’s words instead of his deeds.

Towards the end of the interview, as Burns continued, Reid said, “I’m gonna give you one more chance to answer my question and then we’re gonna be done here, because you’re actually wasting my time when you talk over me and don’t answer my question.”


   

Burns told Reid “you’re wasting my time,” to which she responded, “Oh, well then, if I’m wasting your time, then goodbye.” And the interview ended.

‘Fire and Fury’ interview turns into a shouting match after author Wolff accuses host of ‘doing White House’s work’












The efforts by the White House to discredit author Michael Wolff’s Fire and Fury book erupted during a Saturday morning interview with CNN anchor Michael Smerconish.

“It sounds like you’re presenting yourself as an individual who has [Trump’s] best interest at heart, likes him, wants to show a more humanizing side of him and for that reason you should be given access,” Smerconish said.




It becomes relevant, because many of us who read the book, and I read the book, are trying to understand where the White House denies it, well what’s true and what’s not true? And, therefore, your level of veracity in walking in the door becomes significant.” “And I’m missing — so what are you implying here?” Wolff asked. “That’s exactly what I had in mind to do, it was open your kimono, let me see.” “I wrote the story that I got, I wrote what I saw and what I heard,” Wolff suggested. “I think we should point out that someone in the White House is obviously giving you e-mails that I sent, which is perfectly fine, but, you know, the White House has been on a concerted attack on me since this book came out,” Wolff reminded. “By the way, a totally incompetent attack, which so far has found a few typos and turned this book into the best-selling book in the world,” Wolff argued. “But you are now doing the job of the White House, just so everybody knows that,” Wolff charged. “Well, wait a minute, I read the book, I took the time to read the book,” Smerconish claimed. “I have questions as a reader.”

Watch ‘Racist’ Trump gets an epic shaming from Joy Reid as she personally addresses him on air












The question of President Donald Trump’s racism was the focus of MSNBC’s Live on Friday. Anchor Katy Tur began the segment by noting, “today the world is asking, ‘Is the President of the United States a racist?'”

“Hallie, I want to start with you because you were on the campaign trail with me … I want to get a sense from you what it’s like inside the White House today and what your sources are saying about whether or not he did in fact say these things,” Tur questioned.




“Let me tell you the newest thing we have learned, which is my reporting, along with Geoff Bennett at the White House unit, that the president was working the phones after all of this coverage happened late last night on the s-hole remarks looking for essentially reassurance, I’m told by one source familiar with the calls, and also told his mood was belligerent — not at the people he was calling, but at coverage at the fallout overall,” Jackson reported. “He was apparently, according to another source, looking for some insight into how all of this might resonate with his base.” “You know, I find that interesting that the Republican senators are refusing to comment, no one is calling Dick Durbin a liar, because does anybody disbelieve Donald Trump said exactly what he said? His entire history is replete with racism,” Reid explained. “He was racist against Barack Obama for the entirety of Barack Obama’s presidency and was a birther — was one of the original, OG birthers –which was a racist smear against the President of the United States,” Reid concluded. “Donald Trump’s whole history says he said it, yeah he said it, of course he did,” Reid concluded. “Let me just say to Donald Trump, who does watch a lot of TV, and apparently one can communicate to him through the TV, when my mother got here in 1960 … she didn’t come here to steal from the American people or to be on welfare, she came here to get a Ph.D., as did my father, who came here to get an education,” Reid explained. “My family has done a lot for this country.”
