When a man, who proposed a ban on Muslims, called Mexicans rapists (and then used a Taco bowl to pander to Latino voters) refused to denounce white supremacists and asked for President Barack Obama’s birth certificate because of the color of his skin, says he is the “least racist person you’ve ever met,” you have to wonder what a really racist person might be like.
Donald Trump walked out of (read: ran away from) an interview, after the reporter asked him a question about the different labels he has — rightfully — earned over the last year.
“Nineteen days out from the election, you’ve been labeled a racist, you’ve been called a sexist, how ...” reporter Colleen Marshall, of Columbus’ WCMH-TV, asked him.
In the blink of an eye, Trump turned away and started walking in the opposite direction, saying, “Thank you very much.”
However, when Marshall further asked the Republican nominee how he would respond to the criticism, he came back and replied, “I am the least racist person you’ve ever met,” Trump said.
Honestly, this sounds like a threat when one considers the magnitude of his well-documented history of bigotry.
This wasn’t the only interview Trump had to cut short this week.
The foul-mouthed billionaire also refused to answer the question by another local Columbus reporter who asked about the latest sexual assault allegations against Trump.
“I know nothing about that,” he told Columbus’ 10TV, before walking away.
