Right-Wing Pundit: Trump Is Not Racist Because He Would Allow Dem Lawmakers To ‘Come Back’ To The US
Right-Wing Pundit Salena Zito tried to defend Donald Trump’s racist tirade against democratic women only to humiliate herself after claiming that “both sides” are at fault for the president’s xenophobic tweets.
In an unhinged rant on Twitter on Sunday, Trump suggested that four non-white congresswomen should “go back” to their country of origin — even though three of them were born in the United States.
Zito asserted that “both” Republicans and Democrats were responsible for the conditions that led to the tweet.
“I wish I had just stayed in church instead of hearing Trump’s tweets,” Zito lamented. “Here’s the unfortunate thing — there’s two unfortunate things — that we are so polarized right now that even if you are a Trump supporter and you don’t like what he says, you may not say anything at all, pushback at all or may not even see it as racist.”
Zito suggested that the tweet is not racist because Trump offered to allow the four congresswomen to “come back” to the U.S. after they fixed their countries of origin.
