Not really news, but rather just a reminder that many members of Donald Trump's campaign staff are really, really racist!

Courtesy of Time: 

Donald Trump’s paid campaign staffers have declared on their personal social media accounts that Muslims are unfit to be U.S. citizens, mocked how Mexicans talk, called for Secretary of State John Kerry to be hanged and stated their readiness for a possible civil war, according to a review by The Associated Press of their postings. 

The AP examined the social media feeds of more than 50 current and former campaign employees who helped propel Trump through the primary elections. The campaign has employed a mix of veteran political operatives and outsiders. Most come across as dedicated, enthusiastic partisans, but at least seven expressed views that were overtly racially charged, supportive of violent actions or broadly hostile to Muslims. 

A graphic designer for Trump’s advance team approvingly posted video of a black man eating fried chicken and criticizing fellow blacks for ignorance, irresponsibility and having too many children. A Trump field organizer in Virginia declared that Muslims were seeking to impose Sharia law in America and that “those who understand Islam for what it is are gearing up for the fight.” 

This article comes out at the same time that Mother Jones is reporting how Trump's new campaign chief created a haven for White nationalists over at Breitbart, and  on the heels of Rachel Maddow's report last night on essentially the same topic.

Yes I know this should not be terribly surprising considering these people are working for a candidate who launched his campaign by accusing Mexicans of being rapists.

But I thought he was supposed to pivoting.

Remember this?
Silly me for not realizing that he was pivoting toward being MORE racist.

    I think he's wearing the hat to distract from his telaprompter reading. Yeah using teleprompters that he and the republicans used to make fun of. Creep

    That Kenyan shouldn't be president of us white people. Am I right reality TV personality? (Snark)

    The reality TV star and businessman has spoken extensively about his questions over whether Barak Obama was actually born in Hawaii like he (and the state of Hawaii) says he was.

    Good thing African-Americans didn't string up that Kenyan. President Obama is an American.

    Further proof that Trump has not pivoted:

    Donald Trump laced into the hosts of MSNBC's morning show anew on Monday, accusing one of co-hosts of being "neurotic" and a "mess" and both of them as being "two clowns."

    "Tried watching low-rated @Morning_Joe this morning, unwatchable! @morningmika is off the wall, a neurotic and not very bright mess!" Trump tweeted Monday, referring specifically to Mika Brzezinski, in response to the first hour and 20 minutes of MSNBC's "Morning Joe."

    Minutes after his initial tweet, Trump offered another personal broadside.

    "Some day, when things calm down, I'll tell the real story of @JoeNBC and his very insecure long-time girlfriend, @morningmika. Two clowns!" Trump tweeted, a day after campaign manager Kellyanne Conway insisted that he "doesn't hurl personal insults."

    The show offered its usual criticism of the GOP nominee, returning from one commercial break to the tune of "Everything Is Awesome" from "The Lego Movie," as a clip of Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus telling ABC on Sunday that Trump had a "great week" and is "getting into a groove."

      Trump's secret plan is to ship all blacks back to Africa after shipping Mexicans back to Mexico.

      All Muslims will be sent to Guantanamo.

    You guys act like Trump is some type of monster. Donald is a family man who loves his daughters and sons. Some got the impression from watching The View that he loves one more than the others. Nothing wrong with that. Deep down in the south we all have our favorites.

      No mistake, he is a bonafied monster. Instigate fear, violence, "2nd amenders, deal with Hillary"!

      Yeah, he loves his daughter! Nothing wrong with that?

      haha Goebbels loved his daughters too.

      Trump is Queens, New York born and raised. He is 70, June 14, 1946. His only southern connection is with the low life bigots and rich Palm Beach, south. More incest and pedophiles than you can count. Love of his daughter and sons does not have that wholesome family values vibe some people would like to believe and pawn off onto others about the Trumps.

      Not many watch or care about The View, no impressions from there amount to anything. I've lived in several parts of the south. It is no secret about many families on both sides of the tracks.

    called for Secretary of State John Kerry to be hanged and stated their readiness for a possible civil war,

    Dangit we told them staffers to keep things quiet until we get all our Patriots lined up in a row. Now it won't be a surprise when we start our Civil War against those Negros - Muslims - Mexicans and those whites who are against us.

      I remember, Brett something, she was a drug fiend and got kicked off the show.

    Who gives a rat's a$$ if, when, and how sharply he pivots? We're talking about a man who has revealed himself pretty clearly over the long campaign, not to mention his entire lifetime, who everyone is now expecting to flip-flop massively...because that would be...what, massive flip-flopping would be so very appealing to undecided voters?
    How is the media not calling this for what it is?

      The only pivot he'll do is 360. Then head full bore in the exact same direction he was always going.

    Not entirely off-topic (I hope) - Just wanted to report that I'm having a bit of success in 'baiting the bigots' over at Briebart. I make just one, somewhat contrary, but mild, post response (any TRUMP topic) and the people there go wild.

    I almost feel bad frothing them up at the gums, but I think it's a good way for them to use what energy they have batting at the air and trying to battle logic and reason with immature insults and name-calling.

    You cannot reason with irrational people.

    But you can find some comic relief.

    And now this to ponder:

    If I am intolerant of intolerant people does that make me intolerant?

    Whoa. I saw through my own belly button!

    Who hires these racist staffers for the Trump campaign? Recently there was the Russian sympathizer but he no longer works there and now this. They all worked for the Wannabe president who has attacked women concerning their menstrual cycles, women who he felt was unattractive, wants to deport Muslims and Mexicans.

    Now the Trumps are suing whoever hurt Melania's feelings.

  13. Anonymous4:23 PM

    For eight years Michelle Obama has been attacked by racist pigs who has said she looks like a gorilla to claiming she's a man. Are the Obamas suing anybody. Did the Obamas sue Trump for hurting the Obama's wittle bitty feelings? No, the Obamas have too much on their plate to worry about Trump.

    1. Anonymous6:49 PM

      The Obamas don't have Trump's psychological disorder- even if they had nothing else to do they wouldn't engage with a grub like Trump, they are way too classy.

    Republicans In Turmoil As Trump Abruptly Cancels Campaign Events In Three States

    Donald Trump has abruptly canceled scheduled campaign events in Colorado, Oregon, and Nevada as questions grow over what is going on with the Republican nominee’s campaign.

    After cancelling a heavily promoted speech on immigration in Colorado, the Trump campaign announced that they were canceling a scheduled rally in Nevada:


    Trump blamed the flooding in Louisiana for canceling a rally and fundraiser that was scheduled in Portland, OR.

      Ummm, what does the flooding in LA have to do with Portland, OR?

      Did I miss something? Or is this along the line "any excuse will do?"

      Donnie is helping Melania with her immigration speech. She will be doing it any day now and he wants it to be perfect. You know how important immigration is for the Trump family and a great deal rests on the former immigrant that loves this country so much that she honors it with her true story.

      Darn press has messed things up and been after the Trumps. It is up to Melania and her immigration speech to set the record straight. Trump didn't focus enough on her RNC speech and look what happened.

      Trump must give his all to Melania and her immigration speech.

      The Melania speech on immigration is any moment now. Just as promised.

    Donald Trump announced Tuesday evening that his wife will hold a news conference "over the next couple of weeks" to address reports that she violated immigration laws when she first came to the U.S. Trump said his wife would prove that "she came in totally legally.

    We're still waiting for this Breaking News press conference Melania is supposed to give.

    Now we know why there's no immigration news conference. Melania is busy putting people on notice:

    a New York modeling agency that once represented Trump "also operated as an escort agency for wealthy clients." That report was then picked up or referenced by other news outlets.

    Trump talked and talked all year long since he came down that elevator. I am so sick of his voice. Worst than that woman from Wasilla. Mean, baiting, insulting, and trying to talk the talk of a do gooder while doing no good whatsoever. Honestly, it would be good if those two would just hold their tongues instead of representing all the other evil haters. It's not good for our health to hear all that and Christmas is coming, and I want to be happy again. Make America calm again.

  19. Anonymous6:23 PM

    More news commentators think Trump is trying to court independent voters by playing up to blacks and Hispanics. Trump wants people to believe he is not a racist and bigot.

    Trump is all over the map about immigration now. When I heard what he said about black people stereotyping them I was stunned. IMO he will not succeed in recreating himself as caring about either group. He spewed too much venom and declared he would deport Mexicans.

    Trump spends more on his hats than on staff.

    Wanna bet it is partially because his own company supplies the hats? (Don't know, but I'm willing to bet money on it.)

    "While Hillary Clinton and Democrats are actively organizing to get out voters in every state, Trump is spending more money on hats and merchandise than on staff and field organization.

    Politico reported:
    Meanwhile, spending on the 84-person staff and field organizing barely increased from the previous month, to just $392,000 and $432,000, respectively. The campaign dropped much more — $1.8 million — on hats and other merchandise."

    I think someone mentioned this the other day, but didn't elaborate.

    About Trump's security briefing...

    "The gentleman he brought with him to his security briefing just last week is someone who’s on the payroll of the Russia Times, which is a basically a propaganda arm of the Kremlin. He was sitting two seats away from Vladimir Putin at heir 10th Anniversary gala.

    There are a lot of questions here. And we need Donald Trump to disclose all of his financial ties and whether his advisers are having meetings with the Kremlin."

    I'm so sick of that cheeto-faced Twatwaffle that when I see his fat visage pop up onscreen I hit the "MUTE" button.

    He's a miserable liar, bully, misogynistic bigot, and should never be allowed within a mile of any political seat.
