Trump Assumes Black Reporter is ‘Big Obama Fan’

April 28, 2011

(ChattahBox Political News)–Is reality TV star Donald Trump so totally devoid of self awareness that he has no clue how vulgar and racist he sounds, every time he opens his mouth? Apparently, that’s the case. Minutes after spewing race-baiting attacks on President Obama’s educational background, Trump responded to a question from an African-American journalist by pointing out that he must be a supporter of President Obama.

Think Progress reports on the exchange between Inside Edition reporter Les Trent and and Donald Trump, friend to “The blacks.”

TRUMP: When was the last time – if you go to China, as an example – bridges being built, massive bridges. When is the last time we built a bridge in this country, other than a little toy.

LES TRENT: Isn’t that what President Obama tried to do with his stimulus package?

TRUMP: The President… Look I know you are a big Obama fan. The president doesn’t know what he’s doing.

LES TRENT: Why do you say that?

TRUMP: Because of your question. The President doesn’t know what he is doing.

Trent told Think Progress that Trump didn’t make the same assumption with the other journalists present.

Last night CBS’ Bob Shieffer called Trump out on his race-baiting, particularly his vile assertion that President Obama didn’t deserve to go to ivy league schools.

“That’s just code for saying he got into law school because he’s black. This is an ugly strain of racism that’s running through this whole thing. We can hope that kind of comes to an end too, but we’ll have to see,” Schieffer said.

Stay classy Donald.

    —-The whole Trump/Obama thing’s an utterly set-up
    phoney.

    The ONLY issues of the moment are the now finishing
    off RED China sellout and TREASON op, and, of course,
    the MASSIVELY covered-up, unparalleled Fukishima
    world radiation disaster.

    ALLLL else is ——–DIS—–traction.

    REALLY!
