All the “debate” about whether Donald Trump is really, truly racist should be put to rest now. The man actually opened his mouth in public—as president of the United States—and fixed his flat lips to say that “all Haitians have AIDS and Nigerians live in huts.

The New York Times recently published a report about Trump’s immigration agenda. What many have zeroed in on are the president’s alleged words from a meeting in June, a day after he was told how many foreigners had obtained visas to enter the U.S. in 2017.

Reading from a document prepared by Stephen Miller, the oldest 32-year-old I’ve ever seen, with his own issues around race, Trump was mad about his immigration ban being struck down and the blackness of the immigrants coming into this country. The Times reports:

More than 2,500 were from Afghanistan, a terrorist haven, the president complained.

Haiti had sent 15,000 people. They “all have AIDS,” he grumbled, according to one person who attended the meeting and another person who was briefed about it by a different person who was there.

Forty thousand had come from Nigeria, Mr. Trump added. Once they had seen the United States, they would never “go back to their huts” in Africa, recalled the two officials, who asked for anonymity to discuss a sensitive conversation in the Oval Office.

I mean, tell us how you really feel.

Of course, the president doesn’t recall using the words “AIDS” or “huts” but didn’t deny the gist of the conversation.

Press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, in an official statement, said that “General Kelly, General McMaster, Secretary Tillerson, Secretary Nielsen and all other senior staff actually in the meeting deny these outrageous claims. It’s both sad and telling The New York Times would print the lies of their anonymous ‘sources’ anyway.”

Of course none of this is unbelievable, as New York magazine notes that Trump has a history of saying and doing racist shit:

Trump has demanded the death penalty for the Central Park Five and failed to change his opinion even when they were proven innocent; called Mexicans rapists on the first day of his presidential campaign; defended neo-Nazis; and, of course, advanced a conspiracy theory about the first black president for years.

Not only is such language explicitly racist, but it’s also disgusting, anti-intellectual, anti-black, anti-humanity and just wrong … on all the levels. He’s a menace. To us all.

Someone said it before about a countdown to the word nigger coming out. But, I would like to add to the idea: start a pool at the Root for the exact date and time he will say nigger in public. Not even “look at those niggers asking for hand outs” or “I’ve groped some hot nigger bitches in my life” or “too bad you niggers aren’t in slavery”. No, nothing so specific, just the word Nigger in a public. Intentionally. Not with a “hot mic” in the distance that can be Sith-Lord-explained by that lyin’ bitch who only speaks in deception Shuckabee. No, actual, conversational ‘nigger’. Like he says when Omorosa wasn’t around.

Or maybe she was.

She probably was.

She was.

She definitely was.

Follow up pool - Suckabee’s explanation would include: Blacks say it all the time. He has a great relationship with the Blacks. Blacks shouldn’t say it if they don’t want whites to say it. If Blacks say it, it is no longer racist. The first person President hired was that nigger Ben Carson. The President loves niggers - look at how much chicken he eats.

$5 entry. I’m a vision guy, not a detail guy. Can someone set this up, please?
