Trump’s Racist Attacks on Democratic Congresswomen: A Closer Look

Trump’s Racist Attacks on Democratic Congresswomen: A Closer Look


-The president mounted
an appallingly racist attack on four Democratic women
of color in Congress. For more on this,
it’s time for “A Closer Look.” [ Cheers and applause ] It’s been obvious from
the very first moment he stepped onto the political stage
that Donald Trump is a racist, and that racism is at the core
of his political ideology. It’s not a side dish.
It’s the main course. Every day, he serves up
a steaming hot entree of racism and then washes it down
with a side of… -McDonald’s, Wendy’s,
and Burger King for some pizza. [ Laughter, cheers ] -Trump launched
his political career by questioning legitimacy
of the first black president, began his campaign by claiming Mexico is sending criminals
and rapists to the U.S., and said a judge who
was overseeing a lawsuit against him in 2016 shouldn’t be allowed
to oversee the case because of his ethnicity. -Now, this judge
is of Mexican heritage. I’m building a wall, okay?
I’m building a wall. -But you’re invoking his race
when talking about whether or not
he can do his job. -Jake, I’m building a wall. Okay?
I’m building a wall. -If you are saying he can’t
do his job because of his race, is that not
the definition of racism? -No, I don’t think so at all.
-No? -No. He’s proud of his heritage.
I respect him for that. -You’re saying he can’t do
his job because of that. -Look, he’s proud
of his heritage, okay? I’m building a wall. This judge is giving us
unfair rulings. Now I say, why? Well, I’m building a wall. -Okay, but why won’t you
tell us what you’re building? [ Laughter ] He keeps saying it over and over
like he’s wearing a wire and calling for backup. “I’m building a wall.
I’m building a wall. Wall!
Steve, get me out of here!” [ Laughter ] So, Trump launched
a racist attack on a judge by calling him unqualified
to rule in a case because of their ethnicity,
and, by the way, in case you’re somehow
still curious about Donald Trump’s legal bona fides, here’s what he had
to say on Friday about Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s
report which listed 10 possible instances
of obstruction of justice. Remember, 10. 10! Somehow, everyone’s
forgotten about that, because it was like
50 scandals ago. We all have such scandal
fatigue, at this point,
Trump could streak naked across the White House lawn with his head stuck
in a KFC bucket, screaming, “I did it. I broke all the laws,”
and two days later, we’ll all be scratching
our heads, going, “Oh, yeah, right.
That happened.” So, Trump was asked about
the Mueller report on Friday, and he tried to claim that
Article 2 of the Constitution gives him the power to,
basically, do whatever he wants. Now, remember,
this is the same guy who said a judge wasn’t
qualified to rule on a case because of
that judge’s ethnicity. By comparison,
here’s Trump talking about Article 2 of the Constitution
of the United States. -Number one, there’s no crime. And how do you obstruct
when there’s no crime? Also, take a look
at one other thing. It’s a thing called Article 2. Nobody ever mentions Article 2. It gives me all of these rights at a level that nobody
has ever seen before. We don’t even talk
about Article 2. -what do you mean,
nobody has ever seen before? It was written
over 200 years ago. just because you’ve
never seen it before doesn’t mean
nobody’s ever seen it before. “I just saw this great
little independent film. No one’s ever seen it before,
called ‘The Lion King.'” [ Laughter ] it’s about a good
guy named Scar, but oh, he’s got
a real a [bleep] nephew who tries to backstab him. [ Laughter ] But I like Scar — I haven’t finished it.
It’s two hours long. That’s too long. But I like Scar’s chances.
I think — I think it’s gonna end well
for Scar.” Also his interpretation of
Article 2 is obviously wrong, which is not surprising since he, apparently,
just discovered it. “Here’s another thing
I just learned. Did you know we had a president
who was 100 feet tall? [ Light laughter ] Made of stone.” What we saw in that interview was the core of Trump’s
racist world view, and we saw yet again on Sunday when Trump launched
a stunningly racist attack On four progressive women
of color in Congress. -The President
of the United States told progressive Democratic
women of color in Congress to go back to the crime-infested
places from which they came. Trump writing this — “So interesting to see progressive
Democrat Congresswomen who originally
came from countries Whose governments are a complete
and total catastrophe, The worst, most corrupt,
and inept anywhere in the world, If they even have
a functioning government at all, now loudly and viciously telling the people
of the United States, the greatest and most powerful
nation on Earth, how our government is to be run. Why don’t they go back
and help fix the totally broken
and crime-infested places from which they came? Then come back
and show us how it is done. These places
need your help badly. You can’t leave fast enough. I’m sure that Nancy Pelosi would be very happy
to quickly work out free travel arrangements.” -Okay, first of all,
there’s no acceptable word for this other than racist,
period. Not racially charged
or racially tinged or, as “The New York Times” put it, Trump’s racially-
infused politics, like it’s some kind
of fancy drink At a Williamsburg cocktail bar. “Oh, honey, their cosmo
is racially infused.” Second,
this is beside the point, but three of the Congresswomen
you’re attacking were born here, and they’re all
American citizens. So, if you’re asking them to fix the totally broken
crime-infested governments of their home countries,
they’re trying. [ Laughter, cheering ] It doesn’t matter… Doesn’t matter whether they were born here or not,
they’re Americans. This is their country,
and they are treating it with a lot more
respect and devotion than the racist gargoyle
who sits around, tweeting from the back nine
of his chintzy golf course. I mean, look at that. That looks like a sculpture someone would build
to make fun of Donald Trump. I call this one
“The Melting Racist.” And then today
Trump reeled off yet another racist tirade
at a White House event called the “Made in America”
product showcase. First, he took questions
from reporters and defended his tweet
when asked if they were racist. -Not at all. -Democratic Congresswomen
are not American? -Somebody has a problem
with our country, if somebody doesn’t want
to be in our country, they should leave. -I think it’s very fitting that he’s standing
next to a boat because he always looks
like he just fell off the side of a booze cruise and got dragged back onto deck
by a lifeguard. Then Trump moved
over to the podium where he continued his tirade and doubled down
on those racist tweets. -If you’re not happy
in the U.S., if you’re complaining
all the time, very simply, you can leave. You can leave right now. Come back if you want.
Don’t come back. It’s okay, too. But if you’re not happy,
you can leave. -I’m sorry, you’re accusing
someone else of comp– All you do is complain. You spent the eight years
of Obama’s presidency lying and complaining
about everything. In fact, at one point,
you actually bragged about the fact that
you were great at whining. -I am the most fabulous whiner. I do whine because
I want to win. And I’m not hap–
-Are whiners winners? -And I am a whiner,
and I’m a whiner, and I keep whining and whining
until I win. -That is a terrible
Dr. Seuss book. “I keep whining and whining
until I’m a winner. And then I go home
and have pizza for dinner.” [ Laughter ] Trump’s attack on four
progressive women of color wasn’t just blatantly
and appallingly racist, it’s also a classic
racist trope. It’s the kind of taunt
and insult people of color have been
subjected to for years, as Senator Kamala Harris
explained. -It’s absolutely racist
and un-American, and it is an old trope — “Go back to where
you came from.” You might hear it on the street,
but should never hear that from the President
of the United States. -And she’s right.
Trump shouldn’t be president. At best, he should
be on the street selling fake Rolexes
in Times Square and yelling at tourists
for not buying them. “Oh, what?!
You never heard of a Polex?” [ Laughter ] What we’re seeing now,
once again, is the core of Trump’s racist
ideology and policy agenda. His administration is
inflicting cruelty on migrants through inhumane
detention centers, family separation, and he spent his career
questioning the legitimacy of everyone
from the first black president to judges
to members of Congress. What more do you need
to impeach this guy? Congress should
just say to him… -You can leave.
You can leave right now. -This has been “A Closer Look.” [ Cheers and applause ]

  1. Wie heißt dieser bezahlte Penner? Seth? Was bedeutet Seth? Verkörpert er in Nachfolge das Böse? Möchte er lustig sein?

  2. Trump doesn't mention color or race anywhere in his tweet. He says "people from other countries". I guess liberals think the only other countries that exist are ones without white people in them.

  3. They ARE trying to fix the totally broken, crime-infested, corrupt country it's called AMERICA! And YOU are a big part of its Decline! TRUMPED-Up accusations of "Wrong Doing" in other Sovereign Nations and Squandering OUR taxes to do it! Handing more of OUR taxes to a Regime who Has Nukes, stole the parts, lied about not having them, Built an enormous WALL around GAZAschwitz where they keep their "problem"! BDS is an expression of political opinion or an example of the First Amendment! Sanctions on other countries are not your choice to make alone ie. Iran, Venezuela, Syria, Yemen, etc.

  4. the only thing that the president said that was true i want people to think he was honest just once since he's been president that the repunklicans are weak as the people see they are his puppets

  5. All this is gone Way Beyond politics I say there's no answer let's just all start killing each other and the last one standing is the winner democrat or republican motherfukers need to die let's do it

  6. Donald trump hates everyone who can't racially identify as a cross breed between a yeti and an oompa loompa.

  7. demonrats are all infected with a brain eating worm and seth your propogenicide show sucks satans sack or is it snatch? cunts

  8. Trump told them to fix their countries, that's all.These ugly fascist women are hypocrites. Its OK for them to swear and curse and talk about white supremecists. On the other hand, they support terrorism and screech death to Israel. Fucking liars! Get them out of your country. They hate you!!

  9. the only thing i can figure is those who own pelosi, her donors, don't want her to impeach him. why else would she continue to do nothing, while our country is being destroyed by this "person".

  10. Trump is now that corrupt government he tweeted about. The squad are in the country trying to fix what Trump created. Marianne Williamson confirmed what Trump said about the people coming thru the boarders is a lie and a myth. These 4 women are doing the best for America and Trump is using his platform to stop them. Now it's upto America to have their back. Or still stand by Trump and help him destroy your America.

  11. I like these comics pithy remarks about the Boob in Chief BUT they are giving him air time repeating his name over and over. Name recognition is one of the best ways to get elected because the average US voter doesn't know a thing about the candidates in question just that their names have been in the news!

  12. Okay, so Seth, you just went down to his level with this piece. I have no respect for Trump, but you have lost my respect too. Attack his ideas, but it is getting old that you attack how he looks and acts. Is that not as bad as what he is?

  13. Trump's "Racist" Attacks on Democratic Congresswomen: FAKETALKSHOW take A Closer Look. leave a comment below with your thoughts

  14. So evil ignorant people as evil (bad, wrong, misleading) Seth Meyers is spewing racism (when it isn't about race!). When "if" those evil and ignorant "brown" females of the "squad" were Caucasian or other were saying the same evils as the four "brown" females of the squad have been spewing. That the POTUS wouldn't have said the same thing or that the same thing couldn't or wouldn't apply. See that's the evil of Seth Meyers and those morons that agree with his biased ignorance and bigotry. They are making this about racism when it isn't! Seth Meyers is throwing the truth to the ground while instead of reporting on news he is "making" news.

  15. Could someone please compile a video of Trump complaining about America, then saying that if all you do is complain, you should leave?

  16. let's say you tool where is the outrage over an antifa terrorist attack on ice facility that could have been devastating you don't care about that cuz you're told not to who's really pulling the strings here

  18. i just love how these democrat licking late shows & news channel tries so hard to fool the common American people …

  19. So, let me understand this correctly. Because the judge is of Mexican descent that makes him incapable of doing his job without bias. Okay, so that means, none of my White constituents should be in charge of any agency that deals with what White America calls minorities. Why? Because they are White individuals and it would be due to them being incompetent, biased or, it is a conflict of interest. But of course, my White countrymen would not agree to such a stupid concept. Would we? Donald, you are an idiot!

  20. Can we discuss the irony of a perso. trying to end immigration into our country telling people here to immigrate away if we dont like him…

  21. Trump hasn't caused a nuclear war yet so id say hes doing okay. Aoc wants america to be socialist so i dont like her. Whos gonna foot the bill for free healthcare. The united state has a ton of debt, if the governed cant pay off the debt how are they gonna pay for free healthcare. The Somalian politician said 911 was some people doing stuff. She hates isreal. Screw her. Dont know much about the others other then the African american one is using her race as a shield. Obama never did those things when he was president. He used his talents which had nothing to do with race.

  22. The Psycho Socialist Squad and the media walked right into Trump's trap. He played them like marionettes.
    While they frothed at the mouth about this with faux outrage, he quietly signed bills to severely restrict asylum seekers from using a loophole of access via another country.

  23. Any chances of these four bird-brained senators of migrating back to their ancestral lands like their other feathered friends this coming autumn.

  24. Always racist, thank you Trump for fighting for our freedom, keep up the great work!!!! keep kicking these communist 4 !

  25. crap i thought this was a video for intelligent people. did not know it was for full blown retards. keep up the great work PRESIDENT TRUMP.

  26. if someone complains about a party they are attending then logically they would leave ! what's wrong with that ! the democrats don't treat people of colour the same as white people ! they are the racists ! you should be able to critisize people of colour if they call your country garbage ! the democrats want to divide the country into different groups ! they're trawling for votes ! trump has done more for minorities than obama did in 8 years ! lowest unemployment since 1969 ! that is an incredible achievement ! the workers love trump !

  27. I just come here to laugh about the TDS comments and I'm not even political I think all people voting to be governed are retarded and would identify myself as an anarchist, but people falling for the social engineered honey boo boo effect is just to funny.

  28. These Mindless Minions on late night talk shows are completely out of touch with reality.

    They complain that Donald Trump is racist, and that he hates brown people,
    Yet they never address all the brown people in Yemen that have lost their lives as a result of Donald Trumps warmongering.

    If they really had a vendetta against Trump there are far more damning pieces of information that are public knowledge.

  29. I think you all should look up the true definition of hate speech plus historically the republicans were always for ending slavery whist the democrats were always for slavery, they turned it all around thru entertainment and took a typical democrat value based character like the racist Archie Bunker and pretended he was a republican. You should look into the historical records and you'll find the democrats were always the racists and ever since black people got the right to vote they just turned it all around pretending to be the non racist party in order to enslave the black population thru welfare and other measures to keep them bound to their old masters. By the way it's all theatre, freemasonry runs both sides and is trying to have the country to collapse from within in order to become socialist/ communist under a global new UN like structure after the third WW now that they helped to build up a worthy enemy in the allies between China and Russia against NATO. Ever since they ridiculed Bill Clinton in front of the nation for an affair to bring down the office of president, ever since they forced in W.Bush to show the elections were corrupt, ever since they had Hillary come out with Obama not being an American born citizen to bring down the constitution and now purposely created the total divide and non acceptance of a democratic elected president #not my president. They're slowly breaking the US down from within on purpose. Globalism can't handle freedom of speech, gun rights etc. this is a long social engineering scam and fake opposition theatre and your all falling for it Just look into freemasonry presidents/ police/ military/ media/ music industry/ film industry/ banks/ religions/ NASA/ FBI/ CIA/ Fortune 500 companies or the fact that D.C. Is a private Freemason owned city state with Freemason border posts, the world council of freemasonry and a complete Freemason preplanned freemason symbolism layout whilst googling the Albert Pike Freemason Luciferian quote from his book reasons and dogma. It's all a divide and conquer theatre and you'll falling for it.

  30. How about the fraud squad there a pretty racist bunch of lunatics. I was surprised you don’t talk about the racist comments they have made. Also this show needs a new host this guys is a cuck boy.

  31. This Seth Dickhead is the one that helped President Trump get elected,thanks Seth Dickhead! TRUMP 2020 KAG!

  32. Cultural Marxists invented the word to silence Europeans. Notice how you have to have White skin to be called this insulting word!! If u use it your ignorant. Anybody that uses it has something to gain, or is stupid. This is how they condition us, by repetitive reinforcement! There isn't a debate!

  33. When these evil women can't get their way they call racism.They do not even know what color they are. Women can be evil sometimes especially at that time of month but these witches are evil all time of the month.Take it from me,a true woman.

  34. We had eight years of the "SOCK MONKEY" and nobody mentioned that he was the most racist president we EVER had. When did it become illegal to be racist?

  35. Same old tactic and strategy to avoid the truth, using the old and evil and exposed evilness and deceitfulness of one of political correctness's old ideologies called THE RACE CARD RACE BAITING SIDE-TRACKING/AVOIDING THE ISSUE TACTIC-STRATEGY BY ALL RACIST BLACKS AND HYPOCRITICAL BLACK SUPREMACIST RACIST BLACKS SUCH AS Al Sharpton AND Elijah Cummings.

  36. I'm not a trump fan , but seriously , how are his tweets racist? He didn't say anything about their race , he just said that if they don't like the country they should leave , that's all !! Sure it's a mean thing to say but there is nothing that involves race in there!!

  37. Tbh I think I’d be more upset if he said, “go back to your country” to people who actually came here because they love America. The people he said it to, I don’t really care bc they already hate the place. I’m pretty sure he wouldn’t have told them that if they actually loved this country and didn’t talk trash to us all the time.

  38. Demokkkrats are the real racists. Fought for slavery. Started the kkk. This man complained about his country then ran for president to fix it, he didn’t leave. He has enough money t do whatever he wants and chose to have the hardest job in the world. You people didn’t like trump from the beginning and don’t do any research yourself. He was never called a racist, sexist until the media declares him one and all you yuppies bought it. Larry King once asked him who would be his Vice President if he ran for president and he said Oprah. Oprah is black right. Hillary Clinton said all black people look the same. In 20-30 years it’s going to be republicans against independent party.

  39. How bout that wall …winning winning winning ….oh and your ten possible instances of obstruction …and if you find a single one he's committed any crime let me know

  40. Democrats are racist they are trying to control the minorities the illegal aliens and act like their savior when in fact they do nothing but Rob them out of every tax dollar and give them nothing

  41. Beware of that Omar the MUSLIM that despises Israel!
    Remember in the Bible it talks about the white horseman in the book of revelation
    Which
    Represents the false profet Mohammad was a fasle profet ! And those who believe the Koran are worshipping the Beast!
    Is that what most Christians in AMERICA want???

  42. His supporters are also a racist. Their denial of their bigotry and flat out intolerance of people of other colors and religions is bewildering.

  43. In order to fix something that is wrong with the country, you must first ::speak:: about the problem so you can get others to join in and help fix it. And you can't be happy when you're doing that. Trump wants us all stoned and obeying our munchies for fast food…yeah, we'll all be happy then!

  44. I don't know if this tweet was racist. He didn't actually say "go back to your country". He said that the four congresswomen should go back to the crime infested places from which they came. That doesn't necessarily refer to foreign countries; it could mean a city, a district, a state or a US territory. But even if it wasn't racist, it is CERTAINLY hypocritical!!! How can Trump think it's OK for him to keep criticizing the conditions of his country, but the same does not go for those congresswomen???!!!!!

  45. Black man here, not that it matters. I'm no fan of Trump but I don't believe he's a racist. Living in AMERIKKKA, i've encountered MANY RACISTS in my life, but in spite of all that, I still love white people, as I have also crossed paths with many GOOD whites.

  46. Donald: if you’re known in this country or history for anything, it’s being the WORST FUCKING PRESIDENT OF THE U.S EVERRRRRRRRRR. If it’s ever appropriate for anyone to curse,,,,now IS THE PERFECT TIME…Seth said so ❤️😂

  47. It’s absolutely racist and completely habitually AND TRADITIONALLY American! Stop saying it’s UNAMERICAN because it most certainly isn’t and there are bodies of dead non-whites citizens and immigrants to prove it. Now, saying that it’s NO LONGER an acceptable but still somewhat tolerated American attitude, IS MUCH more honest and correct. Yes, America still tolerates it because if they didn’t HE WOULDN’T be the POTUS. If Americans were still so horrified by both his actions and words he would have been impeached already. This is ALL Theater…

  48. Wowwwww remember when late night shows weren't LEFT WING PROPAGANDA, shame on you, Russia gate hoax, fear mongering… Whwres the "late night comedy, to help wind down after a long hard day's work"

  49. Guys, Donald Trump is supposed to make this state better. Not if you like it or not. It's YES I'll make it better so you feel comfortable not NO only my fellow peers I'd love to have surround me can be accepted. Did Obama said that? No. Why should we make a exception to Donald? He's a double chin orange? It's not like food, toys. It's the fricking country we're talking about guys. 🙄🙄

  50. Hm Im anti Trump but his comment re the 4 congresswoman was NOT racist at all.
    He said if they are are so great why dont they help their origing countries rather than attack the US

  51. And here I thought except for the natives americans , everybody else in the USA was from somewhere else…Did not know that Trump was native american…

  52. Dems insist that our President is racist because he is, as they say, against immigrants. They 'forget' to add the word 'illegal'. I think that even the word 'immigrant' should not be used in these cases. Immigration is a legal procedure for crossing the border and becoming a member of the country. A country without borders is like a body without skin. Opening the border would be the end of our way of life. I, like so many more Americans, am an immigrant. The moment I crossed the border at the airport, I felt like everybody else, despite my ridiculous English. It was a new and wonderful feeling.
