Our racist president, being a racist, says something racist

I didn’t want to write about Donald Trump’s most recent racist statements, as, to be honest, I didn’t see as how any good would come of it. It was just a week or so ago that we were talking about how he’d told four freshman Congresswomen of color to “go back” to the “crime infested” […]
