Republicans can chain Donald Trump to a teleprompter, but, as he proved during a speech in Akron, Ohio they can’t stop his racist ad libs.
While speaking in Akron, Ohio, Trump’s script called for him to say:
For those hurting the most – who have been failed again and again by their politicians – I’ve asked in recent days, what do you have to lose by trying something new? If you keep voting for the same failed politicians, you will keep getting the same results. But, most importantly, I want to talk about what you have to gain. Those hurting in our country have so much to gain by joining our campaign for a new, and more inclusive, American Future.
Trump couldn’t resist and had to go off script to call African-American populated cities war zones, “Poverty, rejection, horrible education, no housing, no homes, no ownership. Crime at levels nobody’s scene. You could go to war zones in countries that we’re fighting, and it’s safer than living in some of our inner cities. They’re run by the Democrats.”
Trump went back on script for a moment and then ad-libbed that African-Americans should vote for him because he employs a lot of African-Americans, “Crime all of the problems to the African-Americans who I employ so many of.”
Donald Trump also promised that if African-Americans vote for him, they’ll be able to go down the street without getting shot.
Trump continues to assume that all African-Americans are poor and living in inner cities. He expanded on his racism to include the idea that African-Americans across the United States are now walking down the street and being shot.
Donald Trump’s views of the experiences of minorities in this country are based on racist stereotypes.
None of the Trump ad libs were in the speech transcript, which proves once again that Republicans can stick a teleprompter in front of their nominee, but they can’t get the racism out of Donald Trump.
The great Republican Trump teleprompter experiment has been a major failure because no matter what they put in front of him to read, the GOP nominee is still Donald Trump.
