After describing an upwelling of support for Trump from neo-Nazis, white nationalists and other racists over the president’s tweets telling four progressive congresswomen to “go back” to where they came from, CNN’s Jake Tapper wheeled out Spencer to deliver the death blow.
“Many white nationalists will eat up this red meat,” Spencer said scornfully, boasting that he was not “one of them” and calling the routine a “con game.” CNN apparently didn’t catch the implication that Trump wasn’t racist enough for the white nationalist poster child – or didn’t care, since Spencer was throwing Trump under the bus either way.
“He gives us nothing outside of racist tweets, and by racist tweets, I mean tweets that are meaningless and cheap and express the kind of sentiments you might hear from your drunk uncle while he’s watching Hannity,” Spencer snarked.
Twitter erupted. Conservatives frothed at how “the media hate Trump so much they are willing to give a scumbag like Richard Spencer a platform just to get some anti-Trump soundbites.” “They will do anything so they can scream ORANGE MAN BAD at the top of their lungs,” another user observed.
