Irony to the white courtesy phone, please.
Donald “I have a good relationship with The Blacks™” Trump is calling for Jon Stewart’s head. Apparently, he lives in a world where making a joke about kidnapping babies is racist.
No, it doesn’t make any sense:
In his latest Youtube video Tuesday afternoon, the birther-curious host of The Apprentice had a lengthy rant about Stewart’s confusion over Cain’s response to the sexual harassment charges.”
“How come Jon Stewart gets away with a racist rant against Herman Cain?” Trump asked. “Nobody else could pull that off. Where is Rev. Jackson? Where is Rev. Sharpton? Where are all the critics where if someone else did it, it would be a disaster?”
Trump then cited the part where his outrage at Stewart was based on.
“He horribly stated in his imitation, ‘Have you ever kidnapped a baby other than the Lindbergh baby,’” Trump said. “Now if anybody watches this, they would say ‘Wow, that’s amazing.’ It’s not what he said, but the way he said it. The tone of his voice, the inflection, unbelievable. Anybody else, deep, deep trouble.”
When somebody else says something, even a little bit non-politically correct, they go after him. But when Jon Stewart does a horrible, horrible thing to the African-American community, they leave him alone.”
I’ll tell you were Reverends Jackson and Sharpton are — laughing at your dumb ass.
As you can see in the video in question, Jon Stewart neither says nor does anything that could remotely considered racist:
Nothing racist. Not even a little. Nothing even racist-ish. Trump is full of shit.
Furthermore, Trump’s trumped-up accusations are rich coming from the guy who demanded that President Obama release his birth certificate and acted like a gleeful jackass when he did so, completely blind to the fact that his request was borne of racism and privilege and was, unlike Stewart’s comments, “insulting to the African-American community.”
And let’s not forget that Trump also demanded to know how President Obama got into Columbia and Harvard.
But yeah — Jon Stewart is racist because he spoke in a deep voice when mocking Herman Cain’s ridiculous responses to questions about the sexual harassment scandal.
