Americans think that Donald Trump is prejudiced and there is little argument about that. In a recent poll conducted by Yahoo News, 54% said that they think that the President is a racist. Only 34% responded that he isn’t, creating a margin of 18%.
Laura Ingraham, however, thinks the idea of Trump being racist is a myth created by the media. The Fox News host went on a rant Tuesday night, claiming that there is zero evidence that shows that the President holds racist beliefs.
The controversial host said of Democrats and the media, “Now their next trick is to launch a desperate campaign to cast President Trump, though, as the villain who threatens us all.”
The Fox host continued, “They don’t like him as a person. So what they have to do is deny that he’s done anything at all good for America. And of course they need to call him racist with zero evidence.”
There is, of course, a myriad of evidence of Trump being a racist. This includes everything from his reaction to the Central Park 5 to his birtherism claims against Barack Obama.
We grew up with an abusive, alcoholic father who was a Nazi sympathizer. Like father like daughter?! This was the familial soil that gave bloom to my sister's anger.

Ingraham, herself, often delivers bigoted opinions. She was recently called out by NBA star LeBron James who tweeted, “If you still haven’t figured out why the protesting is going on. Why we’re acting as we are is because we are simply F-N tired of this treatment right here! Can we break it down for you any simpler than this right here???? And to my people don’t worry I won’t stop until I see.”
