Trump’s Tweet About Black People Using The “N” Word Comes Back To Haunt Him On MLK Day

This alone should have disqualified him from the presidency.

Thanks to Vice President Mike Pence’s complete disrespect of Martin Luther King Jr. over the weekend, Donald Trump has now come under fire for some very damaging and racist tweets.

On Sunday, Pence made a big mistake by comparing Trump and his racist border wall to Dr. King, and even used a quote from the civil rights leader to make a case for Trump’s horrific push for his wall. In response, old tweets from Trump have been dug up and resurfaced to show just how different these two men were and the evidence shows that Trump himself had once used MLK’s name to protect former celebrity chef Paula Deen when she was under fire for using the n-word.

In 2013, Deen landed herself in hot water after she admitted to using the n-word. Deen had been a judge in Trump’s Miss USA pageant, and The Donald rushed to her defense and insisted she should be given “credit for admitting her mistake”:

Now, that wasn’t SO bad, but it got so much worse (as always with Trump). Clearly boasting an attitude that he still has today, Trump told Deen to “stop apologizing” for her racist comments.

And THEN, Trump tried to defend Deen by pointing out that African Americans use the N-word, bringing MLK into it at the same time.

To top this all off, Trump had the nerve to go on Fox & Friends a few months later to complain about black people calling white people “cracker.” He brought up Deen again and said:

If you are a Republican, you make a statement like that, it’s over, I mean you are finished. It’s a very rough double standard. Paula Deen was absolutely crucified, what they did with her, I don’t know what even happened to her. I see everybody dropped her, she has really got some problems. It’s amazing.”

It seems like not much has changed. Trump is still racist as ever, and it’s a shame his history of blatant racism didn’t disqualify him from the election.
