Trump Falls Back On Racism To Distract And Divert

Trump loves to claim he isn't racist, yet he is defunding sensitivity training that includes the term "white privilege."

Prznint Stupid reaches into his bag of tricks to distract us and rally Possum Hollar, and pulls out his ol’ stand-by: White Privilege.

White House directs federal agencies to cancel race-related training sessions it calls ‘un-American propaganda’

“President Trump is moving to revamp federal agencies’ racial sensitivity trainings, casting some of them as ‘divisive’ and ‘un-American,’ according to a memo by the White House Office of Management and Budget.

“In the two-page memo, OMB Director Russell Vought says Trump has asked him to prevent federal agencies from spending millions in taxpayer dollars on these training sessions. Vought says OMB will instruct federal agencies to come up with a list of all contracts related to training sessions involving ‘white privilege’ or ‘critical race theory,’ and do everything possible within the law to cancel those contracts, the memo states.

“The memo, released on Friday, also tells all federal agencies to identify and if possible cancel contracts that involve teaching that America is an “inherently racist or evil country.’”

You can read the memo here.

You don’t have to be Kreskin to see what he’s trying to do here, and frankly it might work. To the degree that Possum Hollar is patriotic and might be PO’ed about Commander Bunnypants dissing the troops, he knows for a fact that racism is always going to be their first love.

BTW, Hair Füror is tweeting and retweeting all morning –his racist base are singing his praises about not spending tax dollars on “indoctrination.” I stopped after about 20 tweets. I guess this is also now a Claim Chowder in the same post.
