Trumpdate: Still the Least Racist Person There Is

May 9, 2011

Politics is all about timing. Donald Trump very effectively built up a ton of buzz about his maybe-presidential campaign by taking the birther conspiracy theory from rightwing o to the Today show. But he says he can't formally announce a campaign until after the season finale of his reality show Celebrity Apprentice. With the birther issue now settled, Trump can only make news, it seems, by getting made fun of or sued. Which is happening quite often. This is Trumpdate.

  • Still Not a Racist Trump's first move after the birther issue was taking off the table was to make a not-so-subtle affirmative action charge implying that President Obama only got into Harvard because he's black. But he's not a racist! He's always been cool with "the blacks." Trump went on Fox & Friends Monday to again insist that "I am the least racist person there is." The colorblind proof? "Randal Pinkett won, as you know, on The Apprentice a little while ago, a couple of years ago. And Randall’s been outstanding in every way. So I am the least racist person." Randall Pinkett is black. He won Trump's show in December 2005. That's not a good enough record for J-Breezy, who tweeted, "Last week Obama interrupted Celebrity Apprentice...This week Trump fired ALL 3 black chicks in the same week.... #revenge."
