"I am not a crook." Yes, Nixon said it. And yes, Nixon was a crook.
"I am not a racist." Yes, Donald Trump said it. And alas, yes, Trump is a racist. As a matter of fact, The New York Times printed today "The Definitive List" of Trump's racism, HERE.
The hypocrisy of Trump's denial and of his GOP defenders is beyond incredible. Remember when Paul Ryan called some of Trump's remarks, "textbook racism"? Now he speaks of Trump's "exquisite" leadership.
By Emmett Lee Dickinson:
He conned his sheep that lousy lout
And no surprise for him --
He cannot break from racist ways
Forever he’ll remain --
By Emily Dickinson:
He went by sleep that drowsy route
To the surmising Inn –
At day break to begin his race
Or ever to remain –
