New York Democrat Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY) recently outed himself as a typical, demagoguing Democrat when he decided to say something utterly disgusting (and untrue) about his political opponents. Taking the easy road in a debate, he decided to spout the most inane and unsupportable nonsense during a recent speech at a New York City High School. Here’s what Jeffries told the audience:
While Jim Crow may be dead, he’s got some nieces and nephews that are alive and well. And a few of them are running around 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
It’s absolutely disgusting and untrue.
What has President Trump done, or even said, in his first 100 days that could possibly account for the comparison Jeffries chose to make? NOTHING.
While President Trump may have his detractors in the Latino community and in the Muslim community, he has neither done nor said anything that could possibly be construed (or misconstrued) as racist. He has never attacked the black community, in fact, he has gone out of his way to beg the black community for their support. He did it during the campaign by speaking directly to their needs and he has done it since the election by asking for black leaders to meet with him at the White House to discuss how he can help improve their communities.
The reality here is that Jeffries is a fool who can’t think of any other compelling argument against Trump or the GOP… so he falls back on a terrible trope and makes a disgusting connection. Jeffries should be ashamed of himself and his constituents should be ashamed that they elected such a buffoon.
