Do prominent Trump supporters not understand it’s a bad idea to talk to the British media?
Is this really in the Guardian?
Donald Trump’s campaign chair in a prominent Ohio county has claimed there was “no racism” during the 1960s and said black people who have not succeeded over the past half-century only have themselves to blame.
Kathy Miller, who is white and chair of the Republican nominee’s campaign in Mahoning County, made the remarks during a taped interview with the Guardian’s Anywhere but Washington series of election videos. …
Miller added: “I don’t think there was any racism until Obama got elected. We never had problems like this … Now, with the people with the guns, and shooting up neighborhoods, and not being responsible citizens, that’s a big change, and I think that’s the philosophy that Obama has perpetuated on America.”
Miller dismissed the suggestion that Trump was exploiting racist or prejudiced views among some voters as “the media making stuff up.” Instead, she said of the Republican nominee: “He’s very willing to talk about issues that have never been discussed publicly.”
When it was pointed out that some people might find her remarks offensive, Miller replied: “I don’t care, it’s the truth.”
Holy fuck! It’s the same thing the North Carolina congressman said. It’s a damned talking point for the Pump Truppets.
Don’t they realize that when they’re talking to people they don’t know, they’re supposed to use their inside voice? Because there’s no doubt they’ve been interviewed by their local media and they’ve said the exact same thing, but it wasn’t reported because “both sides!”
Oh, and Hillary! Only 50 percent are deplorable? You’re way off!
