  2. Wow. I thought maybe it was subtle or in the background (as if that would excuse it lol), but no, the video straight up shows them saying it multiple times. You can’t miss it.

    Trump just posted an explicitly white power tweet.

  3. POTUS tweeting out “white power!” is an obvious distraction from the Russia bounty story.

    But POTUS tweeting out “white power!” deserves our full attention & criticism.

    He’s trying to overload our outrage between selling our troops out to Russia & his racism.

    Going to get worse before it gets any better.

  4. This confirms, along with many other actions, that trump is a white nationalist president.

    We cannot let him stay in office until January. He must be removed.

    This is leagues beyond unacceptable.

  5. I used to joke about “How much longer till Trump starts openly using the n-word?” But I don’t think it’s a joke anymore. Like honestly, it has to be soon, right?

  6. (USA) I live in a 55+ community near The Villages. I’m a retiree transplant from a very ‘Blue’ New England state. This is repulsive beyond words for me, both the asshat’s thumbs up ‘white power’ exclamation and our poor excuse of a president retweeting it. As bad, is the idiot in my own community driving his golf cart proudly displaying a confederate flag. A putrid stain on our community in my opinion. As our 1st Amendment allows them to display their hatred like this, it also protects my right to vehemently disagree with it.

    I will vote BIDEN this fall, and as our current presidency continues to sink, and with the GOP leadership’s complicit approval of failed policies and lack of ethics and empathy, I want to remind all sane and civil Americans to not get complacent and ensure they VOTE these fools out of power in November.

  7. >*”Corrupt Joe is shot.”*

    **PHRASING** ffs. Those words were NOT chosen randomly…

    If there’s anything Trump is masterful at, it’s saying things without actually saying them. Cohen warmed us, that man is a mobster hiding in plain sight.

  8. Respect to those seniors for protesting that ridiculous pro-Trump golf cart parade. It’s easy to write off the old white folks, but these people standing up to their racist peers are an inspiration (even though nobody in that clip behaved much like an adult).

    The fact that the president tweets something like this at all is disgraceful.

  9. Guys, I have a theory and it might sound crazy but hear me out: Trump is an unapologetic racist and is tapping into his white nationalist base to get reelected.

  10. I am also concerned by two tweets he has that “Joe Biden is shot,” including one yesterday. While on face value, he could be saying that Joe Biden is worn out, but his tweets (I feel) are encoded to promote his real agenda. It’s a strange sentence to repeat.
