People Are Hammering ‘Racist F*ckface’ Trump Across All Media For Calling a Black Woman a ‘Dog’

President Trump is being dragged all over the internet and across all media after he called Omarosa Manigault Newman a “dog” on Twitter.

Trump’s comment prompted outrage by critics who said the comment was a racially charged attack on the former aide, who is a black woman.

“When you give a crazed, crying lowlife a break, and give her a job at the White House, I guess it just didn’t work out,” the president tweeted. “Good work by General Kelly for quickly firing that dog!”

The reference is to White House chief of staff (and retired general) John Kelly, who fired Manigault Newman last year.

The attack stirred an immediate backlash.

“How dare he? How dare he call anyone a dog,” Rep. Frederica Wilson, a Democratic lawmaker and a black woman, said on CNN. “We already have racism raining down all over America.”

“I know we’re all supposed to be post-shock now, but the President of the United States calling anybody, and specifically a black woman, a dog cannot be allowed to pass in silence,” she said.

NBC host Joes Scarborough issued a scorching response:

“We’ve heard it said before and we’ve heard it discussed before about how tyrants and autocrats and, yes, fascists, communists (and) others used the language of dehumanization to justify, well, a movement away from democracy and a movement away from decent standards,” Scarborough said.

He compared Trump’s racist slurs to dehumanizing language used to justify slavery and genocide.

“During the Holocaust Nazis referred to Jews as rats,” Scarborough said. “In Rwanda genocide was often justified, calling them cockroaches, slave owners considered slaves subhuman animals.”

“It opens the door for cruelty and genocide,” he continued. “Nobody is saying that Donald Trump is a Nazi, nobody is saying that he’s Adolf Hitler in 1938, 1939, 1940, but you can see time and time again … this is how dictators and tyrants open the door, and they do it by dehumanizing their political opponents.”

Trump’s dehumanizing language had been translated into cruel actions, such as his administration’s family separation policy.

But the internet had the harshest words for the bombastic president.
