A New York Times columnist declared in Mondays paper that it is a “settled fact” at this point that President Donald Trump “is a racist and white supremacist.”
Charles Blow also referred to the president as a “weasel” and proceeded to name a number of offenses supposedly proving that Trump is an avowed bigot.
“The racism has become almost routine,” Blow wrote. “Now it is the continued revelations of the degree to which Trump takes the presidency as a giant game, in which he is all-powerful, in which supplicants must come pleading, in which he has an unmatched ability to retain power by manipulating and deceiving the populace.”
The column also bizarrely compares Trump to the Wizard of Oz, “only this man is a weasel.”
Later on in the column, Blow makes it clear what all this hostility is about: Trump attacked The Times in a tweet on Saturday. (RELATED: Liberal NYT Columnist Admits Hes Not Feeling Too Great About The Russia Investigation)
“The Failing @nytimes quotes a senior White House official, who doesnt exist, as saying even if the meeting were reinstated, holding it on June 12 would be impossible, given the lack of time and the amount of planning needed. WRONG AGAIN! Use real people, not phony sources,” Trump tweeted.
Nothing in this tweet was remotely racially driven, but Blow apparently needs to make sure Trump is shamed for it anyway.
