President Donald Trump has had an especially hard time convincing Americans he's not racist this week.
What with blaming "many sides" and the "alt-left" after this weekend's deadly violence in Charlottesville — despite white supremacists and neo-Nazis being at the heart of the protests against the removal of a Confederate statue — he's making it pretty hard to believe otherwise.
Trump received a great deal of backlash for refusing to directly condemn white supremacists, the KKK, and neo-Nazis until Monday, and that statement was undermined by his off-the-rails press conference a day later that once again blamed "both sides," emboldening the KKK and white supremacists.
Trump has yet to denounce the hate groups that brought fear into Charlottesville's streets, beginning with a racist, torch-lit march Friday night, on Twitter, his messaging platform of choice. Holding back on Twitter insults seems pretty unlike Donny Boy.
In fact, after searching through the depths of the Trump Twitter Archive, it's clear Trump has no problem publicly decrying things and people as racist — so long as they're not Nazis or white supremacists.
First black president? Must be racist. So racist that he warranted another tweet.
This man wrote Who's Afraid of Post-Blackness?: What It Means To Be Black Now, so that makes sense? Right? According to Trump, Touré's a very boring racist responsible for racist coverage on MSNBC and has bad ratings.
Is John Stewart racist? Well that YouTube video doesn't work, so we can't really say.
Zuker seems to have referenced an example of Trump being racist ... but maybe he's actually the racist one.
Another black man Trump accuses of being racist ... Trump also called him a talentless, really dumb, man with a "long and deep record of failure." But to be clear, Trump doesn't think Gumbel's stories are racist — just him.
What do you even say to that?
Forget the fact that the show is about a black man trying to raise his family in today's society with a strong sense of cultural identity, Trump feels the title is racist.
You know, the movie about a freed slave...
The Maryland Democrat Party
Yes, the department store.
Bill and Hillary Clinton
You saw that one coming.
How many black men does this make, Trump?
Turn the tables
While the archive shows many accusations from Trump, it also shows some of the many who've called him racist. Over the years big names like David Letterman, Al Sharpton, Donny Deutsch, and Mitt Romney have called the president racist — but he continues to assure us all he is not.
This all makes a lot of sense. Really.
