Trump warns of ‘very bad people’ fleeing from Bahamas to U.S.

Jesus Christ. It’s like we’re being governed by a guy who’s never left Hayward, Wisconsin.

Today, Donald Trump said he’s wary of people who are traveling to the U.S. from the Bahamas in the wake of Hurricane Dorian. Gee, I wonder why that would be.

The Hill:

“I don’t want to allow people that weren’t supposed to be in the Bahamas to come into the United States, including some very bad people and some very bad gang members, and some very, very bad drug dealers,” Trump continued.

The president claimed that “large sections” of the Bahamas were not hit by Dorian, and that the U.S. would seek to relocate Bahamians in need to those parts of the country.

Trump’s remarks came after dozens of people evacuating the Bahamas were kicked off of a ferry headed for Florida over confusion regarding their visas.

I don’t know why I’m leaving this here, but this is the ethnic breakdown of the Bahamas, from the CIA World Factbook:

black 90.6%, white 4.7%, black and white 2.1%, other 1.9%, unspecified 0.7% (2010 est.)

So, yeah. This again.

Some “very bad people and some very bad gang members, and some very, very bad drug dealers.” Pretty sure some Trumpublican rallies include these, plus likely a few rapists and maybe a murderer or two. Oh, that’s right; they’re white and they “love” the tangerine asshat, so it’s okay.

Well of course. These “very bad” people were just hanging out in the Bahamas & they waited until a hurricane for a good excuse to come here & cause mayhem. They’re black so of course they’re gangs, drug dealers, & criminals. The brown ones are rapists & murderers, little kids too apparently because they’re in cages at the Southern border. He’s afraid they’ll move here & vote against his sorry butt.

Trump’s vocabulary needs improving. Very; very, very, bad people; drug dealers; rapists; murderers. That’s all his can say about people he doesn’t want.

In fact, he is describing himself, whether he knows it or not.
