Trump Flees White House MLK Ceremony After Reporter Repeatedly Shouts “Are You A Racist? [VIDEO]

CNN reports:

Moments after he signed a proclamation for Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, President Trump got up from the table, shook and few hands and made his way to the exit.

Reporters, meanwhile, shouted questions about his “shithole countries” comment yesterday. (This is the first time we’ve seen him publicly since those remarks.)

Journalist April Ryan asked if he would apologize. He didn’t answer. Then she pressed again, “Mr. President, are you a racist?”

  • Joe in PA

    I ❤️ April Ryan.

    • Xaca

      April Ryan is trying for the Omarosa goodbye.

      • Joe in PA

        I hope not.

  • TexasBoy

    Run, Run away, Shithole!

    • Todd Allis
      • Pollos Hermanos

        Fetchez la vache.

        • Joe in PA

          OK, Google translate comes up with “Fetch the cow”. Hmmm.

          • The_Wretched

            That’s correct and about what happens.

          • Pollos Hermanos
          • Joe in PA

            Thank you…now I get it. 🙂

      • vorpal

        His mother was a hamster and his father smelt of elderberries!

        • B Snow

          If that were true, he’d be 1000 times the man he currently is.
          edited: I mean 1000 times better than he currently is.

        • Todd20036

          Actually, I like the smell of elderberries.

          • vorpal

            Actually, so do I. Also the taste.

          • ZRAinSWVA

            And any wine or jelly made therefrom. Yum! (Plus they’re ridiculously easy to pick)

    • narutomania

      He’s a chicken shit hole.

  • Tawreos

    That room is a Trump nightmare come true.

    • Joe in PA

      As @Cuberly said: he looks like a cat in a room full of rocking chairs.

  • bkmn

    Yes, yes he is. And everyone around him is racist too.

  • kelven

    LOVE April! So fearless she shouted it twice! (even though we all know the answer)

    • kaydenpat

      She shouldn’t have been the only one shouting at him though. Our press is so useless.

      • Strepsi

        mm hmm. Trump has already crossed UK and Canada off his list as he knows he’d get boos not cheers – the Washington press corps is largely pathetic. Even the “C’mon Sarah, we’re just trying to do our jobs” refrain is whiny and weak – rebut, ask follow ups, demand answers, play offensive not defense for once ferchrissakes!!!

        • ColdCountry

          I would love to see the press get together and push at one of Dumps conferences. If he refuses to answer a question from a reporter, the next one should ask the same question, and the next and the next, until the entire room is shouting, “answer the question!”

          • kelven

            Just like the Dutch!

        • ChrisMorley

          He needs to cross the Netherlands off his world tour list too, the Dutch media was ruthless evsicerating tRump’s lickspittle Ambassador yesterday.
          Most of Europe is off piste, you’ll remember those fabulously rude huge Carnival floats roasting him from last spring.

    • JCF

      When Drumpf SHOULD be reaching out to her, to make peace w/ all Shithole-Americans. /s [Underscore, that’s SARCASM]

  • shellback

    The first frame of the above video is enough to make me sick. Adoration for a nazi is sickening.

  • Longpole

    Norway rejected Trump’s offer to have more of them immigrate to the US.
    “Of course people from #Norway would love to move to a country where people are far more likely to be shot, live in poverty, get no healthcare because they’re poor, get no paid parental leave or subsidized daycare and see fewer women in political power. #Shithole”

    • Tor

      I think Norway is rated as one of the highest countries where people are happy and satisfied.

      • William

        I might like it if they moved south a bit.

      • RoFaWh

        I’m willing to bet a small sum that America’s hyper-rich oligarchic class are not particularly happy and are constantly dissatisfied with their lives.

        • Todd20036

          Indeed. After your salary increases beyond $75k, more money does NOT equal more happiness.

          It’s certainly possible to be happy and rich. But I’ve seen the opposite up close and personal.

          My older sister was a selfish, spoiled brat. Then she married a multimillionaire. After that, she became a smug, selfish, spoiled brat. But she was no happier.

          After he left her and took her for all she was worth (which admittedly was not much) she regressed to being a selfish, spoiled, childish brat.

          If you aren’t a happy person, being rich won’t make you any happier.

          • spamky

            I think it’s more that they are less worried about money when they make $75k or more and therefore not likely to be unhappy due to having fewer money-related issues.

          • BigGuy

            Money can’t buy happiness, but can buy relief from over whelming life threatening depression. With enough money, most everybody who is suicidal can be lifted up to being functional, though very unhappy.

            Very rich people who commit suicide are choosing death rather than admitting they feel bad and seeking help. Lonely widowers who are physically healthy and have money who commit suicide are choosing death rather than moving on with their lives.

            When grandma dies, take away all of grandpa’s ammo.

      • TampaZeke

        THE highest.

        But that’s only because it’s a liberal shithole.

      • zhera

        One of the more important indexes, the one about women’s lives, rates Norway at, or among, the top. Social security, equality, education, opportunities. These are the things that matter.

      • The_Wretched

        And long life expectancy. It’s sort of a pick your demographic marker. They are better on all of them. Almost like liberal ideas lead to better lives for everyone.

    • Snarkaholic

      (Don’t forget being bullied into joining religious groups and letting said groups dictate your every move.)

    • Artsy

      Don’t you mean Normay?

    • JackFknTwist

      Hahaha…..move to the USA…hahaha………..
      Oh yeah, they are just lining up to move …….hahaha.

      Edit : this morning is Christiansted, St. Croix, at a breakfast place I heard two Americans, lesbians, talking to some Danish students [ St. Croix was formerly Danish] they said:
      “Keep some room for us over there, we may have to move”.

  • Bambino
    • i would love to see a cage match between those two. that would be funny as shit.

      • Bambino

        No contest. Shit hole’s head will be on that tortoise.

  • all i want to say is how much i hate Ken Blackwell. that fucking fuck is a major reason why we are where we are today. as a fellow Negro, i can honestly say i want him to come back home to OH and visit me and my neighbors. we’ll have a…. chat with him.

    • Tawreos

      We worked so hard to get rid of Blackwell, please don’t him back in the state.

      • where you at, babe? we only moved here about 4 years ago, so i missed some of that. you and i could ambush him on the road home, and that could lead to Fun and Excitement. (i live in cleveland now)

    • kaydenpat

      Can’t stand him either. Talk about an Uncle Tom.

    • JCF

      It seems every oppressed group has their Kapos & Quislings…

  • Anastasia Beaverhousen

    “Listen, I have the shittiest shithole of all the shitholes. I was raised in the greatest shitholes and went to the best shitholes. I still live in the best shitholes, so I know shitholes. Shit!”

    • Joe in PA

      Some of the shittiest people are saying that!

      • Todd20036

        Scat man!

    • Mrs. Councillor Nugent

      Where’s Alice Roosevelt when we need her most: “Shut up, you white sonavabitch!”

    • Dean Cameron

      Oh, Anastasia!

  • TimCA

    “Are you a racist?”

    Clearly a rhetorical question of course.

    • JCF

      “Are you ever NOT a racist?” [Equally stupid question]

  • Boreal

    Ok I’m confused. Why would any of those people show up to see a racist sign a proclamation he doesn’t believe in?

    • Tomcat

      They think a republican will do something for them,LOL.

    • gaycuckhubby

      Yep, they should have all boycotted. I would say the same thing about any queer person who would go for an LGBT event with this monster

    • kaydenpat

      They’re Black Republicans. Nuff said.

      • David Walker

        So they’re kinda like our log cabinets?

        • kaydenpat

          Sadly, yes.

    • CJAS

      Blind ambition.

    • PlutoAnimus

      Michael Wolff appears to be the only person with the savvy to deal with Trump properly since the start of the Administration.

      Out of thousands.

      When the Navajo Code Talkers saw that giant portrait of Andrew Jackson behind the podium, they should have said, Get rid of that or we walk.

      There’s always a chump to fall for Trump.

  • Tomcat

    When someone shows you what they are, believe them. Borrowed quote.

  • gaycuckhubby

    People knew this about him before the election. He promised to ban an entire religion from entering the US. He repeatedly said racist things.
    Yet tens of millions of people voted for him.
    Including enough people in Ohio Michigan Florida Wisconsin Etc to put him into the White House.
    This is sickening, and we brought it on ourselves

    • William

      Total votes in swing states likely had outside assistance.

      • gaycuckhubby

        Maybe some fake Facebook ads. But I still put that on the voters

        • William

          More like Diebold voting machines, or precincts with more votes for Trump than people who signed in to vote.

          • gaycuckhubby

            officials have consistently told us there is no ringing. the Democratic and Republican Secretary of State.
            We mock Trump and his paranoid stand on vote rigging. I believe the election was fair. I believe Americans voted for him

          • William

            You might want to look again.

          • gaycuckhubby

            I have

          • OdieDenCO

            2 things always stood out for me. one, the exit polls were off, so much so data scientist called it out. two, the statement “no votes were changed” was repeated numerous times well before any actual investigation could have been completed.

    • fuow

      Worse, far worse – tens of millions of liberals either stayed home or voted ‘Green’, permitting this to happen. Knowing what sort of person this in-duh-vi-dual is. Not to mention the man one heart-beat removed….

      • gaycuckhubby

        Yep, agree fuow

      • JAKvirginia

        Approx. 71 million. FWIW.

    • Ross

      We brought it on ourselves?

      Or did Russia steal the election for Trump?

      CAN EVERBODY STOP ASSUMING THE ELECTION WAS LEGIT?

      • The_Wretched

        Some folks can only hold 1 idea at a time. Sadly, they are the same ones that feel the need to repeat it endlessly regardless of anything anyone has done to educate them.

    • RoFaWh

      I wonder if Trump could be triggered or convinced to start saying nasty things about bible thumpers, fly-over country, hillbillies, etc.

      He’s quite gullible and very easily led if you know what to do.

      • gaycuckhubby

        Ooohhh.. i like that idea!

    • Daveed_WOW

      Tens of millions voted for him because of those reasons. Feature, not a bug.

    • The_Wretched

      ” and we brought it on ourselves” <–this is sickening.

      Don't whitewash the nature of power and money in the US. Political advertising has an impact on overall outcome and the Koch Bros more or less literally bought all the ad space for a number of State level races. It's been so successful that they have nearly 2/3rd of the States' governments on lock down.

      Turn out matters – the population is 60-75% dem or liberal. Registration matters. You can't vote unless you're registered and republicans are using every excuse to throw people off the rolls, using bogus computer programs to throw people off the rolls (aka Crosscheck) and they use racist policing to ensure black men are branded felons (and denied the right to vote).

      I could put 50 more paragraphs here of how we don't have fair and free elections. By reciting lies about politics being controlled by the voters (it isn't except in a marginal way), you're part of the problem and an apologist for the right-wing oligarchs who own the show.

  • TexasBoy

    Clearly a fully staged photo op. Seriously, they even had black military and secret service personnel, the only non-black person besides trump was the VP.

    • Joe in PA

      In his world NO white person would want to be part of that “black thing”. 🙁

    • Tomcat

      Even the dogs and ponies were black.

  • DoctorDJ

    Waiting for the video photoshoppers to inscribe something appropriate in the folder tDump signed…
    “I’m a racist.” seems appropriate.

    His African Americans were well behaved . No side eyed look like Jones’ son, lol https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/d5455f8bb40f73ebbe162dcb5aaa541e1f35c7255cdb1093daf42cc23c39909e.png

    Next up: Trump orders Chitlins, grits, and collard greens for lunch as a sign of unity with Dr. King.

      Chitterling tacos.

  • another_steve

    How shameful of the people of color who attended that signing conducted by a white nationalist racist.

    Have they no pride?

    • kaydenpat

      They’re probably all Republicans who are willing to do anything for the cause. They look like idiots to me.

    • Todd20036

      Money beats everything with some people.

      To answer your question, no, they don’t. Just as some LBGTs will vote for Trump, or Latinos, etc. All minorities have their quislings.

    MSNBC just said Trump is spending the weekend at mar a lago. Guess his physical was too grueling.

    • Tomcat

      He is running away from the storm that’s coming to Washington.
      We have another one coming late this year he cannot run from.

    • Lazycrockett

      He needs to be surrounded by “his” people.

      He couldn’t go. He was waaaaaaay to busy lying in bed eating hamburgers, wathching TV and shitting himself.

      and if the gop had had their way, it wouldn’t be.

      • kaydenpat

        Well, to be fair, Reagan signed the holiday into law (after being pressured to do so).

        • edrex

          fine point, but the loudest opposition was from his party.

      • HZ81

        Good point. I remember AZ asshole GOP Evan Mecham canceling the holiday when in office. He was also a big apartheid fan if I recall correctly. Go figure

  • coram nobis

    Meet Lupe Valdez, who may upset a number of things, including Donald Trump.

    https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2018/jan/12/texas-lupe-valdez-gay-latina-democrat-governor

    It would rank as one of the greatest political upsets of 2018 and a stunning rebuke to Trumpism: a gay Latina Democrat grabbing hold of the country’s biggest red state.

    and the list goes on.

    They used their black peepo rolodex in the past 24 hours. Look past the photo. Look at the content.

  • gaycuckhubby

    As a white man, I never feel comfortable telling minorities how this should resist or protest or fight for human rights. But a little disappointed that’s so many people were there for the signing

  • Rebecca Gardner

    Is his signature changing? That did not look like his normal signature, it seemed to go on longer like he’s confused.

    • The_Wretched

      He got stuck on the “um”-humps. His last name did look about 9 letters long.

  • Gigi

    It’s nice to see that they’re finally holding his feet to the fire but why was no one asking Dolt 45 if he was a racist when he was spewing birther nonsense for seven or so years, or when he said that Mexicans were drug dealing rapists and murderers? #TooLittleTooLate

  • FAEN

    Why are journalists asking? They should be yelling it at him-“YOURE A RACIST!”

    Who are all the clueless Uncle Toms and Aunt Thomasinas surrounding him and fawning over him?

    Trump’s response: How silly. I can’t be a racist I had all those black people in the same room with me. I almost asked them to sing Ol’ Man River.

  • misterjack

    Ask not “is Orangeturd a racist?” but TELL him, he IS.

    The funny thing about this “Photo Op” (cause that’s what it really was… A room full of Black Puppets for “HIM” ; Clapping and smiling on que) is that, With THREE of Dr. Kings Children alive…. His Children mind you, not one of them was there.

    Why is this necessary? It’s been a holiday for a long time. Does he think his proclamation makes it more official? And then he congratulates him. What an asshole.

  • ChiTownGuy

    What self respecting African American in their right mind would stand with this racist today? Seriously. Wtf is with them?

    • FelineMama

      I’m guessing it was more about Mr. King’s legacy & they had to hold their heads up & swallow their disgust for a while.

  • Rather than asking Donald if he’s a racist, I’d much rather the question be asked of him, “When are you going to apologize for your extremely racist remarks from yesterday?
