Even Avowed Racists Are Condemning What Trump Tweeted This Morning

By Abi Travis

A lot of Donald Trump's gaffes are completely laughable. Like accidentally tweeting a birthday message to a random guy who hates him. Or completely screwing up the simple act of taking a sip of water from a bottle. Those things are funny, and certainly not presidential, but they're not harming anyone directly. But most of the time, Donald Trump's missteps are harmful — either to one individual or an entire group. When he complains about "ungrateful UCLA players," he's inciting racism. When he challenges news outlets to a "Fake New Contest," he's attempting to discredit the media whose job is to call him out when he lies (which he does. Often.) And when he shares anti-Muslim videos with millions of people — something he's done today — he is making the statement that it's OK to be Islamaphobic. It'd be one thing if this guy was your crazy Uncle Don who has no platform, but this man is the President of the United States. This cannot be tolerated.
