There are no shortage of anti-Trump folks who’ve suggested that our President is a bigot, a sexist, a racist, or some combination thereof. This has been the angle of attack from the very moment that Donald Trump arrived on the American political scene.
Now, as the President continues to push toward reelection, the allegations against him are growing ever more salacious. The predictability of this escalation is a telltale sign of the desperation of Trump’s opponents, some of whom come to us from inside his own family.
This includes his niece Mary, whose recently published book accuses the President of a whole lot of poor behavior.
This, from an appearance with Rachel Maddow on MSNBC:
Maddow said, “I have to press you on it a little bit just to ask if the president, if your uncle, was an exception to that in your family or if he — if you ever heard — you ever heard him express either his anti-Semitic slurs, or the N-word, or other racist slurs or other sentiments like that. Do you mean this was an ambient thing in your family, but you can’t say you ever heard it from him, or did you hear it from him, too?”
“Oh yeah, of course, I did,” she replied. “And I don’t think that should surprise anybody, given how virulently racist he is today.”
Maddow asked, “Have you heard the president use the N-word?”
Trump said, “Yeah.”
Maddow asked, “And anti-Semitic smears specifically?”
Trump said, “Yes.”
The President and his team have repeatedly called into question both the motives and the accuracy of Mary Trump’s tome, leading us to believe that these claims will be met with a similarly stern rebuke.
