It has not been a good week for Donald Trump. He’s lost Supreme Court cases. He’s been discovered to have hidden his knowledge of Putin paying bounties to Taliban soldiers to go after our troops in Afghanistan. And to top it off, he retweeted a racist shouting “white power”, causing allegations of his obvious outward racism to be confirmed.
But leaving bad enough alone is also not his strong point.

That’s why blonde hair and blue eyes became
black hair and dark skin.
You know, it’s absolutely amazing to me to think that to this day,
hundreds of years later,
that Sicilians still carry that ni**er gene.
No, I’m, no, I’m quoting…
It’s a fact, it’s written.
I love this guy.
Your ancestors are ni**ers! Uh-huh.
Yeah. And, and your great-great-great-great grandmother
