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.

Dog? This is not how any man should refer to a women let alone the “president”. You should be ashamed of yourself.

The President of the United States…
Just referred to a black woman…
As "that dog"…
In a public forum…
Where it will be seen by tens of millions of people.
The entire country should hang its head in shame for continuing to allow this despicable man to be president.

You have reduced the presidential office of the greatest country in the world to name calling, back biting, lying and stealing. I think we all know who the lowlife is here.

@jack this is targeted harassment and racism does this constitute a violation of your policies or not yet?

Please resign. Your continued stupidity is so front and center. Why do you even want to be in the office at all? My only guess is to keep you out of jail. @SpeakerRyan @SenateMajLdr Why in the world do you put up with this craziness? The man is broken. Fix it!

Please tell me I am somehow reading this wrong…. I’ve looked several times thinking it would change or go away… how… how can anyone be okay with this.

Yeah Sweet Pea you were broken up on that tape when you told @OMAROSA
“ I don’t love you leaving at all”.
You are an embarrassment to the Country, we let Trash into the
White House and he brought in his garbage.

You just called a woman a dog. This should be the last straw, but let's see when you figure out calling a woman a dog is not nice you will try and back track and say something like I was getting out of the smog. @realDonaldTrump needs to be impeached right now.

You know, when you tweet garbage like this it makes it easier to believe you said exactly what Omarosa claims you said.

My, my, my…a whole series of panic tweets this morning. You have also called a black womon you hired, who worked for you for a good year, a dog. You are not a man. No real man would do that. I wish @jack would put your account on probation, at least, for your disgusting words.
