We have heard no shortage of pedantic and pathetic attacks on Donald Trump over the course of his presidency, and, to be frank, we are becoming a bit desensitized to it all.
The phenomenon has given Washington an air of deceit, much like lesson of the story The Boy Who Cried Wolf. The left has been so infuriatingly hellbent on delegitimizing Donald Trump’s election that they’ve turned absurd in their accusations. He’s a Russian double agent this week, a racist next week. Rinse and repeat.
It’s all so tiring and boring and transparent, and this blasé attitude toward these allegations has only forced the liberal left to dig deeper and to create increasingly salacious accusations to hurl his direction.
The latest comes to us from Hollywood, again, and from Bette Midler...again.
Left-wing actress and Broadway star Bette Midler suggested President Donald Trump paid black people to pose in a so-called “blackground” photo at one of his campaign events.
Posting a photo from a recent campaign rally, Midler floated the idea that Trump could have African American supporters. “Look, there are African American men in this shot! How much did he pay them to be “blackground”?” she said, offering no evidence for her claim.
The tweet was ridiculous.
Of course, Midler’s assertions of racism have little basis in reality.
Despite garnering the support of just eight percent of black people in the 2016 presidential election, Trump has seen his approval rating reach highs of 40 percent among black voters, suggesting he could perform much better with that demographic in 2020.
These childish attacks on the President are not only harming the integrity of the democratic party, however. These constant and consistent bits of hyperbole also dilute the very definition of “racism” here in the US, and do a disservice to those who are looking to move past the sins of our forefathers and into the bright, prosperous, and united American future.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook and Twitter, and follow our friends at RepublicanLegion.com.
