Donald Trump, one of the most privileged-from-birth white people who has ever walked the face of the earth, was asked last night by the execrable and equally orange Bill O’Reilly if he thought he could understand what it was like to be black in America. His response was just amazing. I mean, jaw-droppingly astounding. If, that is, you haven’t been paying attention to Trump during the course of this campaign.
A fuller explanation of the exchange that came before this, Trump specifically said:
>O’REILLY: There [are] still some black Americans who believe that the system is biased against them. The American system because they’re black, they don’t get the same kind of shot, they don’t get the same kind of fairness that whites do. What do you say to them?
TRUMP: Well, I have been saying even against me the system is rigged when I ran as a, you know, for president, I mean, I could see what was going on with the system and the system is rigged.
So, you know, in one sentence, he does say that he doesn’t think that anyone can understand unless they are black, but then he takes it back and says, “I’d like to say yes.”
This guy. What’s insane, of course, is that the GOP system he’s complaining about was in fact rigged, but rigged in his favor. The rules he constantly whines and bitches about are solely responsible for the fact that he got the required 50% of delegates in spite of not getting 50% of the popular vote. In other words: Donald Trump is still a clueless idiot. Film at eleven.
