Did you think
Frankly, we are horrified that a third of the country is still on his side, but it’s better than nothing.
And it’s probably the only thing that will actually affect Trump, who cares more about ratings than racism, as Modern Family creator Danny Zuker hilariously pointed out on Twitter:
Trump’s face when he denounces White Nationalism and the KKK is the same face I made when my parents made me eat brussels sprouts.

TRUMP: Racism is [looks at the smeared words on the palm of his hand]… blad.

Why did Trump not renounce the support of KKK, white nationalists, and neo-Nazis and call on them to stop wearing his hats?

Trump just said, “Racism has no place in America.” Agreed. That’s why we’ve got to get him out of the White House.

No child gets credit 4, after being pushed for 2 days, reluctantly apologizing 4 an affront. Trump gets no credit for his late condemnation.

Trump’s tweet attacks on Kenneth Frazier make it hard to accept his statements today as an authentic disavowal of racial violence.

3 days later, Trump calls White Supremacy “Repugnant.”

And several couldn’t help but notice Trump paired his late denouncement of racism with the news he was “seriously considering” pardoning Joe Arpaio, his friend and fellow leader of the racist Birther movement:
Trump said he may pardon the most corrupt Sheriff in town. Joe Arpaio’s hatred of immigrants is equivalent to Neo Nazi thugs & KKK ideology.

Trump today: I’m yelling at the only black CEO I know and pardoning a bigoted sheriff. Also, I hate racism

Arpaio was Trump’s partner in crime on the birther investigation. He is literally living proof of Trump’s commitment to racism.

Normal humans have empathy, know right from wrong. Trump doesn’t. I’ll say it in 2 languages: No es apto para ser humano. Unfit to be human! https://t.co/Veuv0wSHB5
