Rep. Peter King: Trump Says 'Racist' Things But He's Not 'Racist'
June 10, 2016

Rep. Peter King is still supporting Donald Trump after Donald's racist attacks on Judge Curiel, even admitting as much when he said, "what he said last week was racist."

However, he added a little caveat to what racism is when he said, "I don't accept that he's a racist."

See, there you have it.

Proof positive.

"There's not a hint of racism,” King said on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.”“What he said last week was racist but I make a distinction between a remark that is racist and a person who - he's almost 70-years-old,” he continued. “He's been in the public light and the private light all those years and nothing has come up that I'm aware of, of any type of racism at all.”
