Donald Trump compares his political problems to ‘Lynching’ before trip to South Carolina HBCU, Lindsey Graham doubles down on insanely racist remark
Columbia, SC – In preparation for his trip to Benedict College, an HBCU founded during reconstruction, Donald Trump took to twitter this morning to compare the impeachment inquiry against him to a lynching.
It is disgusting, immoral, and almost impeachable in it’s own right that Donald Trump thinks there are any parallels between the violent mob murders of innocent African American men and women to his legal woes.
For Lindsey Graham to come out and double down on these remarks is baffling. Over 160 black men and women were lynched in the state that Graham represents. How does Lindsey Graham say this with a straight face? Lindsey Graham is not fit to serve the state of South Carolina. These comments expose him as a truly cynical, racist man who cares only about his self preservation in the eyes of our white supremacist, moronic President.
Our other senator, Tim Scott, recently passed the first federal anti-lynching legislation. Does Sen. Scott believe that his legislation should be used against Democrats running the impeachment inquiry into the president? Does Tim Scott believe as his Senate counterpart does, that the impeachment inquiry is a ‘lynching in every sense’?
Trump will be speaking at a forum on criminal justice on Friday, where his addled brain will surely draw a connection to the topic and his own problems with the legal system. Hopefully he will be forced to answer a question regarding today’s comments. Trump clearly shows that he is incapable of taking a topic like criminal justice seriously if he treats a horrifying chapter of America’s past such as lynching so childishly.
“He is an embarrassment, and he is not welcome in our state” said SCDP Chair Trav Robertson Jr. “It is a disgrace to the presidency, the country, and the history of the struggle African Americans have gone through in our history. How does he expect to have any credibility on criminal justice when this is how he speaks about one of the darkest times in our history?
