Donald Trump accidentally revealed the flip side of the usual racist-hater-bully he usually is in an interview with the New York Times Magazine.
We've all heard the lines about building walls, and how he feels about crime. But until today, those were just bully words coming from a swaggering bully-man. Now we get some true insight into his character.
When asked about whether he would visit Iraq, he nearly recoiled in horror, telling the interviewer, "Never!". But it was the interviewer's observation of Trump's obvious recoil in horror that gave away the game. God forbid a presidential aspirant would go to a country full of brown Muslims. It's not the religion, folks. It's the color. He's afraid.
When he was asked a follow-up question about what cities he thinks are most dangerous right here in the U.S. of A, Trump was quick to name a few. Brooklyn, he said, and “there are places in America that are among the most dangerous in the world. You go to places like Oakland. Or Ferguson. The crime numbers are worse. Seriously.”
It's no accident that he named two cities which are heavily African-American, now is it?
The bully-man is terrified. Hair Drumpf* is utterly, completely, and totally scared out of his mind by black and brown people. He doesn't merely hate them, which he certainly does. He's actually afraid of them.
And he wants to be the leader of the free world. Maybe he should seek therapy for his phobias first.
