Actor/Director Rob Reiner doesn’t like Donald Trump. He makes that clear. And clear. And clear.
And, apparently, he doesn’t like you. He seems intent on making that clear, too.
Here’s what he had to say Monday:
“The President of the United States is a racist. He’s made it abundantly clear his re-election is based on white nationalism. If you support him, there can be no distinction between you being a racist and a racist enabler. They are the same.”

So listen and learn: You are a racist. Period.
Personally, I find it difficult to understand those who believe Donald Trump conquered the New York real estate world, mentored black cultural influencer Russell Simmons, built a global empire, mingled with Hollywood, moved in (Democratic) political circles…and all the while, he was secretly a man who took part in one of the most petty and immature things a person could do: He viewed all human beings according to their shade of melanin.
Yet no one knew. Then, coincidentally right after putting an “R” next to his name, BLAMMO!
The idea is so utterly absurd that I can’t wrap my head around anyone going with it.
But a certain son of the brilliant and beloved Carl Reiner can:
“Donald Trump’s mind is infested. With racism, with misogyny, with lies, with bigotry, with hate.”

Twitter had some things to say about Rob’s Monday message:
I support President Trump and I am not a racist. Holding people in power accountable is not racist.

Use the word racist & related words as often as possible to convey urgency & elicit fear in people. Paint huge swaths of innocent people as evil. Separate them. Make them afraid of each other. Fill them with hate. Then, ratchet it up when people actually get hurt.

Reality called Rob, it would like for you to come visit… it’s been so long since he’s seen you. Your ridiculously over simplified generalizations are enough to make me vomit! pic.twitter.com/vTsWNow215

Unfortunately, so far, this seems to be about the long and short of it:
2016 Democratic strategy meeting:
"How are we going to win this thing?"
"Call everyone racist."
2020 Democratic strategy meeting:
"2016 was a disaster! What are we going to do different this time?"
"Call them racist even harder."

Of course, some gave the director of the ingenious This is Spinal Tap the proverbial high-five:
Republicans have made certain there will be plenty of cheating in our 2020 elections, to benefit them.
Register, Vote, engage everyone you can to do the same. Help others know where their polling places are and help them get there. Tremendous Democratic turnout is crucial.

"What is dangerous about extremists is not that they are extreme, but that they are intolerant. The evil is not what they say about their cause, but what they say about their opponents."

At least one user thinks The Donald’s not only racist, but he’s being overtly racist in order to distract from other more important evil he’s got going on:
The racism schtick is noise. The signal is the fascist takeover of the United States by a hostile foreign power. Pay attention to what he's doing and ignore the noise. He's trying to destroy the IC this week.

That was a deep one.
I kind of feel sorry for Rob — the guy wants to constantly put forth his political opinions, which stunningly degrade half of America. But, because of his particular past, he’s got this following him everywhere he goes, in response to his condescension:

Personally, I like Rob — this version, the guy I saw growing up. You know — the hippie who’s friends with our dear friend Gomer Pyle.
Take it away, Robbie. Let’s forget these fruitless put-downs, and let’s all just be like this:
