The swamp is thick with this one. Bruce Bartlett served as a Treasury official under President George H. W. Bush and domestic policy adviser to President Ronald Reagan.
Bartlett shared on his Facebook page that “100%” of President Donald Trump supporters are “racists.”
Why would he say this? I suspect that he has not been invited to any of the posh parties put on by the GOP Establishment and their Democrat partners in political crimes against the American people.
If you want to be invited to the soirees paid for by lobbyist money, you need to know the right words that open the doors. And what are they? “Trump is a racist and so are his supporters.”
Bartlett must be real desperate since he only has 6,200 Facebook followers. He feels left out. He wants back in. There’s money to be made, and he ain’t getting any.
Here’s some of what Bartlett wrote:
“There is no longer any doubt — ALL (100%) of Trump supporters are racists. If you don’t like it, f*** you.”
After immense — and immediate — backlash, Bartlett shared a follow-up comment defending his original sentiment.
“If I had said that all members of the KKK are racists, no one would doubt that I am right. The KKK has a long history of racism and no one would believe a person who joined in ignorance of that fact.”
Bartlett added that Trump’s “personal record” of racism is extensive, and qualified that “every major racist group in America supports Trump unequivocally.”
