The GOP Reacts (And Doesn’t) To Trump’s Racist Tweets


THIS AFTERNOON ON THE SOUTH LAWN, TRUMP WAS ASKED ABOUT THE
TWEETS, AND HE HAD A SIMPLE MESSAGE: “WOMEN BE COMPLAININ’.”>>THEY’RE VERY UNHAPPY. I’M WATCHING THEM. ALL THEY DO IS COMPLAIN. NEVER HAPPY. I SEE THEM COMPLAINING. THEY’RE COMPLAINING CONSTANTLY.>>STEPHEN: (AS TRUMP)
“AND IT’S NOT JUST THEM. IT’S LIKE WHEREVER I GO YOUNG
WOMEN COMPLAIN. IT’S ALL, ‘I’M UNCOMFORTABLE,’
‘DON’T TOUCH ME,’ ‘JUST BECAUSE I’M YOUR WIFE DOESN’T MEAN I
HAVE TO LOVE YOU.'” ( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
THERE’S THE DOOR. THEN TRUMP DOUBLED DOWN ON HIS
MESSAGE:>>VERY SIMPLY, YOU CAN LEAVE. YOU CAN LEAVE RIGHT NOW. COME BACK IF YOU WANT, DON’T
COME BACK, THAT’S OKAY, TOO. BUT IF YOU’RE NOT HAPPY, YOU CAN
LEAVE.>>STEPHEN: OH, SHUT UP. ( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
( PIANO RIFF ) I’M SORRY. MY MOM TOLD ME NOT TO SAY THAT. MY MOM TOLD ME NOT TO SAY THAT,
BUT, COME ON! NOBODY COMPLAINS ABOUT AMERICA
MORE THAN YOU DO, YOU CRANKY OLD NUT LID. ( LAUGHTER )
EVERYTHING IN YOUR LIFE HAS BEEN HANDED TO YOU, AND YET, EVERY
OTHER WORD OUT OF YOUR MOUTH IS A TANTRUM THAT WOULD GET A
TODDLER DRAGGED OUT OF A BALL PIT. YOU COMPLAIN ABOUT EVERYTHING. YOU DON’T LIKE BETTE MIDLER. WHAT DOESN’T LIKE BETTE MIDLER? THE DIVINE MISS M. THE WIND BENEATH OUR WINGS. ( PIANO RIFF )
( APPLAUSE ) IF SOMEONE’S LEAVING THE
COUNTRY, IT SHOULD BE YOU. AND IF YOU’RE LOOKING FOR A NEW
HOME, MIGHT I SUGGEST YOU GO TO HELL? ( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
( AUDIENCE CHANTING ) ( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
( AUDIENCE CHANTING )>>Stephen: THANK YOU VERY
MUCH! THEN TRUMP WAS ASKED DIRECTLY
ABOUT THE INHERENT RACISM OF HIS COMMENTS.>>DOES IT CONCERN YOU THAT MANY
PEOPLE SAW YOUR TWEET AS RACIST, AND THAT WHITE NATIONALIST
GROUPS ARE FINDING COMMON CAUSE WITH YOU ON THAT POINT?>>IT DOESN’T CONCERN ME BECAUSE
MANY PEOPLE AGREE WITH ME.>>STEPHEN: YES, MANY PEOPLE
AGREE WITH YOU LIKE THE WHITE NATIONALISTS! TRUMP ALSO RESPONDED TO NANCY
PELOSI’S TWEET ABOUT HIS COMMENTS, BY PURPOSELY
MISUNDERSTANDING HER TWEET ABOUT HIS COMMENTS.>>SPEAKER PELOSI SAID YOU WANT
TO MAKE AMERICA WHITE AGAIN. IS THAT TRUE?>>WELL, THAT’S A VERY RACIST
STATEMENT SOMEBODY THAT WOULD SAY THAT. SPEAKER PELOSI SAID, “MAKE
AMERICA WHITE AGAIN.” LET ME TELL YOU THAT’S A
VERY RACIST STATEMENT. I’M SURPRISED SHE’D SAY THAT.>>STEPHEN: (AS TRUMP)
“IT’S VERY RACIST. I’M SURPRISED SHE WOULD SAY THAT
BECAUSE THAT IS COPYRIGHT INFRINGEMENT AND SHE WILL BE
HEARING FROM MY LAWYERS.” ( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
“THAT’S MY GIG. NEVER RUB ANOTHER MAN’S RHUBARB.>>Jon: OH, WOW.>>Stephen: AND TO MAKE SURE
THAT TRUMP GOT HIS RACIST SLANDERS RIGHT, HE
BROUGHT NOTES WHICH HE UNDERLINED IN SHARPIE. AND HE HAND-WROTE THE WORDS
“AL-QAEDA” AS “ALCAIDA” ( LAUGHTER )
HE SPELLED IT PHONETICALLY, OR AS HE WOULD WRITE IT,
“FONETIKALY.” ( LAUGHTER )
( APPLAUSE ) ( CHEERING )
( PIANO RIFF ) TRUMP’S TWEETS HAVE BEEN
UNIVERSALLY CONDEMNED BY THE DEMOCRATS. AND HERE’S THE
REPUBLICAN RESPONSE. (CRICKETS)
(COYOTE HOWL) ( SHHHHHH… )
>>STEPHEN: MITCH MCCONNELL LOOKS GOOD. ( PIANO RIFF )
( APPLAUSE ) DOES. GOT A BEAUTIFUL TAN. BEAUTIFUL TAN. HERE’S THE THING —
ONE REPUBLICAN WAS BOLD ENOUGH TO STEP FORWARD, SOUTH CAROLINA
SENATOR AND WORLD’S ANGRIEST SNEEZER, LINDSEY GRAHAM. HE HAD HARSH WORDS FOR THE
PRESIDENT:>>HE’S A RACEBAITING,
XENOPHOBIC, RELIGIOUS BIGOT.>>STEPHEN: WHERE DID HE FIND
THE COURAGE? OH, THAT WAS THREE YEARS AGO
BEFORE HE WAS SPAYED AND/OR NEUTERED. ( LAUGHTER )
>>Jon: OH!>>Stephen: BECAUSE —
( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ) BECAUSE —
( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ) ( PIANO RIFF )
— BECAUSE THIS IS WHAT HE SAID TODAY:
>>WE ALL KNOW THAT A.O.C. AND THIS CROWD ARE A BUNCH OF
COMMUNISTS! THEY HATE ISRAEL, THEY HATE OUR
OWN COUNTRY. THEY’RE ANTI-SEMITIC. THEY’RE ANTI-AMERICA. THEY’RE SOCIALISTS. THEY’RE ANTI-SEMITIC. THEY STAND FOR ALL THE THINGS
THAT MOST AMERICANS DISAGREE WITH.>>STEPHEN: HE’S JUST LISTING
EVERY NEGATIVE QUALITY HE CAN THINK OF. (AS GRAHAM)
“THEY’RE COMMUNISTS. THEY’RE SOCIALISTS. THEY’RE STREET MIMES. THEY’RE ANTI-AMERICA. THEY’RE PRO-CHLAMYDIA. THEY HATE ISRAEL, AND THEY WANT
TO OUTLAW PIZZA. THEY THINK THE THIRD ‘MATRIX’
MOVIE WAS THE BEST ONE, AND THEY SAY THAT AN OPEN
RELATIONSHIP CAN WORK, BUT TRUST ME, THAT ROAD ENDS IN
HEARTBREAK.”

    I just found out recently from online reports and the facts are that Omar and Tlaib yelled and spout out "Leave the country" long before Trump ever said it. Tlaib back in 2015 she shouted "Deport that a-hole!" while Omar told her opponent on Twitter back in 2012 "Why don't we deport you to wherever you came from." True story, they said them first before Trump ever did. So THEY'RE IN NO POSITION TO CRITICIZE TRUMP.

    Everything is racist. You used to call people black and not "African American," they would cry "racist." Now, you say that, and screams of "racism" still come, as "African American" assumes that all black people come from Africa. Now it is "people of color," which I predict black people will find offensive sooner or later, as it lumps them in with every other race besides whites. I think the latter phrase is the most divisive, as it basically means anyone who isn't white, thus pitting everyone else against whites.
