United States -( The former Special Advisor for Green Jobs to Barack Obama, and all-round politically privileged and successful African-American, was demanding that Donald Trump, forthwith, get “passionate” about the black community.

Atone The Donald must for allegedly cozying up to the Clan.

The dust-up was about David Duke, former grand wizard of the Ku Klux Klan. Duke had endorsed Trump. Trump was supposed to flagellate for it. He didn’t. When CNN’s Jake Tapper pressed a peeved Trump to disavow the Duke endorsement; Trump hummed and hawed, and seemed generally annoyed at the reprimand. Apparently, he’s not into racial sadomasochism.

It was like, “You say David Duke is behind me? What do you want me to do about it? Stop hyperventilating, Jake. Breathe into a paper bag or something.”

Later, Trump tweeted short and sweet: “I disavow.”

The New York-Washington axis of evil—that’s you, Mr. Jones—went mal (as in grand mal).

“What! No sackcloth? No ashes?”

Trump should have answered the tricky Ku Klux Klan question he was asked by media with passion, fulminated an hysterical Van Jones, also on CNN.

For the sake of my kid, frothed Jones, flecks of spittle flying from his mouth. For the sake of the children of America.

The effing kids are the conman’s cudgel of choice.

Your kids are your business, Mr. Jones; your passions yours, too. No presidential candidate should be in the business of catering to ethnic or racial passions. It’s refreshing how switched-off Trump is from the racial-grievance industry.

If you imagined Republican pundits were less unhinged, you’re deluded. “Conservative” succubus S.E. Cupp completed the kitschification of the Donald-Duke debate.

The religion of thought control will do strange things to those who succumb to it. S.E. Idiot began talking in tongues. Conservatives have taken to speaking the postmodern gibberish once associated mostly with the pseudo-intellectual Left. “Trump ‘Otherizes’ others,” prattled this pig-ignorant panelist.

Essentially, Trump was unfazed even indifferent. As he should be. Trump’s attitude was, in fact, as it should be: Take your imagined thought crimes and guilt-by-association and shove ‘em. I’m not responsible for the philosophical bent of the individuals who endorse me.…

While Ms Mercer’s views are much appreciated would someone please educate her in the proper manner for carrying a holstered pistol/revolver. The photo-op prop rig she’s depicted with in this article only serve to undermine her message and OCers in general.
