Another Fun Story About Trump's Extreme Racism and the People Who Love It

This image was removed due to legal reasons.

Here’s a lovely anecdote from the Washington Post about racist White House aide Stephen Miller and racist man-child Jared Kushner laughing at racist jokes told by the racist president of the United States in the racist Oval Office before his first racist address to Congress.



From the Post:

The night before Trump delivered his first speech to Congress in February 2017, he huddled with Jared Kushner and Miller in the Oval Office to talk immigration. The president reluctantly agreed with suggestions he strike a gentler tone on immigration in the speech.

Trump reminded them the crowds loved his rhetoric on immigrants along the campaign trail. Acting as if he was at a rally, he then read aloud a few made up Hispanic names and described potential crimes they could have committed, like rape or murder. Then, he said, the crowds would roar when the criminals were thrown out of the country — as they did when he highlighted crimes by illegal immigrants at his rallies, according to a person present for the exchange and another briefed on it later. Miller and Kushner laughed.

Ha! Ha! Ha! Racism! (A White House “disputed” to the Post that Trump made up Latinx-sounding names, but admitted that he talked about how much the crowds loved his anti-immigration riffs.)

Miller, author of some of the Trump administration’s most vile anti-immigrant policies, makes another cameo appearance later in the Post’s report, which focuses mainly on how badly the president treats Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen (please, though, don’t weep for the objectively bad woman responsible for literally tearing families apart):

When President Trump’s advisers were writing a report on terrorism earlier this year, Miller had a suggestion. Language saying that children of foreign-born nationalists were more likely than non-foreign born nationals to commit acts of terrorism should be inserted into the report and the accompanying press materials, according to three people with knowledge of his wishes.

But Miller’s move was opposed by Nielsen and her top aides, these people said. They said such language was not substantiated in fact and that a report wouldn’t go out from her agency claiming such.

“Not substantiated in fact” is, of course, a very polite way of saying “that’s racist bullshit.”

Anyway, just some cool stories about racist men (and one racist woman) being racist for racist reasons.

Senior writer. When in doubt he'll have the soup.
