CNN thinks Trump’s racist remarks are best explained by a ‘white nationalist’

NY Times’s new euphemism for Trumpist racism moves from “racially charged” to “racially infused”

They just can’t call spades, spades(sic), even as the GOP gets closer to copping to what has always been obvious about Trump, that he is neither charged nor infused. Nor is his racism cosmetic. https://twitter.com/NateSilver538/status/1150792521641058311 https://twitter.com/zachami/status/1150794717560541186 https://twitter.com/Evan_Rosenfeld/status/1150961132510691328 https://twitter.com/BreeNewsome/status/1150958076532600832 GOP...

Trump Gets Away With Spewing Racism, Because Media Won’t Call It By It’s True...

The New York Times is almost quaint, in the era of Trump. It always speaks politely and uses referents like “Mr.” Trump, and it comes up with euphemisms for his lies and racist speech — probably because to tell the plain truth in a headline or sentence would make them sound exactly like the National Enquirer. “Trump Lies Again” or “More Racist Hate Speech From White House,” are words that the editors at the Times cannot bring themselves to write. And it’s understandable, considering that they’ve never dealt with anyone like Trump before, and 187 years of tradition is 187 years of tradition. Unfortunately, what used to be hyperbole or clickbait on the part of the Enquirer is now, quite frankly, simply the way it is. Be that as it may, the Times previously referred to Trump’s racism as “racially infused speech” and their latest euphemism is “racially tinged.” They’re not the only ones with a Victorian sense of delicacy, NPR and the BBC are using “racially charged.” Maybe we should have a contest, what to call racial invective since we can’t bear to call it by it’s true name? ELLE:  After the president tweeted incendiary, racially flecked things at three congresswomen of color, the international press descended upon Thesaurus.com en masse. Their goal? To figure out how to describe something we all can see but some refuse to say because there is nothing more impolite than calling someone a racist. Not even racism itself is more impolite than calling someone a racist. Can you imagine? As Dr. King wrote in his letter from the Birmingham jail, “Do things seem a little racially sprinkled here lately? No offense.” The New York Times used “racially tinged,” as if race were the shade you had to dye a pair of pumps to match your bridesmaid’s dress. They also claimed that Trump “fans the flames of racial fire,” like he’s the villain in Backdraft. Excuse me, Blackdraft. NPR and the BBC have used “racially charged” as if Trump was an Energizer bunny stuffed with white supremacy. Maybe these are headlines we’ll soon see, in this world of correctness over plain truth: “Drove the AmeriKlan made car that needs to be racially charged every couple of hours.” “Decorated his bouquet of hatred with a pleasing spray of freshly picked racial.” “Amazing! This brave, no makeup, unretouched photo gives a glimpse of the president’s racial freckles!” “President waved to old friend, Racismo Racisterman in the street.” “Molecular gastronomy! The President’s submission to the final challenge was a race foam atop a tweet that had been sous-vided in racial juices and paired with a dehydrated dog whistle.” “The president competed on the popular reality show The Amazing Racist.” “Category is: Racially Reminiscent. 10s across the board.” None of these media outlets are doing themselves, or us, any good by dancing around the truth. What is the problem with calling a spade a shovel here? Isn’t accuracy the first tenet of journalism? Et tu, NPR? Good journalism is supposed to describe events accurately and plainly. It's impossible to see how telling congresswomen born in the United States to go home is anything more than one word: racist. pic.twitter.com/9gWjCUaqWs — Barry Malone (@malonebarry) July 15, 2019 It’s time to wipe the lipstick off this pig and tell the truth.

Whoa! Trump Lashes Out At Fox News, Says They ‘Forget Who Put Them There’

Who knows what Fox News did to deserve this onslaught from their Viewer in Chief, the only viewer that they truly care about pleasing — except tonight, they emphatically did not. Here’s what Comrade Cheeto launched into the ether net on Sunday night. Watching @FoxNews weekend anchors is worse than watching low ratings Fake News @CNN, or Lyin’ Brian Williams (remember when he totally fabricated a War Story trying to make himself into a hero, & got fired. A very dishonest journalist!) and the crew of degenerate…… — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 7, 2019 …a “source” of information (ask the Times what they paid for the Boston Globe, & what they sold it for (lost 1.5 Billion Dollars), or their old headquarters building disaster, or their unfunded liability? @FoxNews is changing fast, but they forgot the people who got them there! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 7, 2019 Wow! Sure a 180% turnaround from his posture on Friday, when he was leaving for his golf course in New Jersey and grinning like the Cheshire cat, about great job numbers this month. He was floating euphorically to reelection just two nights ago. But then Jeffrey Epstein wasn’t cooling his heels in the house of many doors two nights ago. Now, going over to the Fox News website, the obvious thing that I see is Jeffrey Epstein being referred to as a monster and a Fox anchor calling for the removal of Alex Acosta. This must not be setting well with Tiny Thumbs. The rest is pretty boring stuff, Starbucks meeting with the Sheriff of Tempe and Michael Bennet talking about his presidential run — you could put an insomniac wired on meth to sleep with that drivel. So, it had to be “you helped cover up a pedophile billionaire’s sex schemes on an epic scale…will we see some accountability from Alex Acosta? He really needs to resign.” And then a female anchor chimed in, “I have zero tolerance for sex crimes.” Then another anchor gave assurances that Trump would deal with this, as he always does. “When you distract from the president’s agenda, you no longer need to be there.” What could Trump possibly find objectionable? Fox News has made Acosta the fall guy. Somebody has to bit the dust, Donnie, and you don’t expect Fox News to suggest it be you, do you? It will be interesting to see where this goes. Somebody better call Sean Hannity. Here’s a bit of humor from Twitter, who is oozing with concern and sympathy for Trump, as always. Are you and Fox breaking up? What, hannity won't fellate you tonight? Don't worry, Downtown Dobbs will, I'm sure. Turn off the TV and read a book for once in your life. Start with this one!https://t.co/4jxGFeHl0L — Howard (@HowardA_Esq) July 8, 2019
