Facing Down Laughably Hypocritical Demands We Respect Republican Donald Trump
I don’t think so. Nope, not after how the GOP treated Obama as they did. Fox News. Trump himself went birther. I will show Donald Trump all the respect the racist bankrupt and crooked real estate shyster shows Muslims, Islam, Mexicans, immigrants and others simply not as white and (allegedly) wealthy as he.
But no president in our nation’s history has ever been castigated, condemned, mocked, insulted, derided and degraded on a scale even close to the constantly ugly attacks on Obama. From the day he assumed office — indeed, even before he assumed office — he was subjected to unprecedented insults in often the most hateful terms.
He has been accused of being a “secret Muslim” and born in Kenya, of being complicit with the Muslim Brotherhood, of wearing a ring bearing a secret verse from the Quran, of having once been a Black Panther, of refusing to recite the Pledge of Allegiance, of seeking to confiscate all guns, of lying about just about everything he has ever said, ranging from Benghazi to the Affordable Care Act to immigration, of faking Osama bin Laden’s death and of funding his campaigns with drug money.
And this from The Hill
President Obama — Trump has long said he is not sure Obama was born in the U.S. and slammed his policies, calling him the “worst ever president.” Obama hit back at the 2011 White House Correspondents Dinner, mocking Trump, who was in attendance.
But Trump hasn’t let up. During the Baltimore riots in April this year he tweeted: “Our great African American President hasn’t exactly had a positive impact on the thugs who are so happily and openly destroying Baltimore!”
I could keep going all day long with these. There are that many. Then the quotes, yikes.
