… Benjamin Franklin!
or read it here.
Trumplican Pete Stauber refused to censure Donald Trump for his racist tweets but he had no problem calling out Ilhan Omar for her “racism” when she used the word “Benjamin” to describe the money Republicans used to swamp Congress. The understandable over sensitivity of many Jewish people doesn’t change the fact that Benjamins are One Hundred Dollar Bills with the famous Jewish American Benjamin Franklin’s image on it. Oh, that’s right. Benjamin Franklin wasn’t a Jew. He just had a common Jewish first name like half of non Jewish American males.
Pete is using weasle arguments to call out the four outspoken Democratic Congresswomen one of whom had a mouthy chief of staff who stupidly mocked Speaker Pelosi as a racist. Awkward but hardly out of place in Trump world where Trump laps all his toadies in name calling.
To be a Trumplican is to be a supporter of the biggest racialist in American History hands down. Is Trump a racist? Maybe, Maybe not. There is no doubt that he is the most historically ignorant President again, hands down. I described Trump as a race-baiter or words to that effect a few months ago in this Reader Column: Worse Than a Racist. As the columns title suggests Donald Trump (IMHO) is an opportunist and as such, much worse than a racist. Pete Stauber is his enabler and beneficiary.
