The actor’s Twitter account shared a string of vile homophobic, racist, anti-Semitic and ableist messages shortly after midnight on Sunday 28 July, including one that asked followers to “kill a handicap f****t” for money. “Rumour has it that handicap f****ts are behind 9/11. Bush didn’t do 9/11, it was all planned by a handicap f****t that’s using text to speech,” read one of the now-deleted tweets. Another read: “Nazi Germany did nothing wrong and that’s on god n***a.” Fortunately, the tweets were...

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Donald Trump on Monday renewed his attacks on a prominent black U.S. lawmaker from Baltimore and slammed black civil rights activist Reverend Al Sharpton, further fueling racial tensions as he linked his attacks to his 2020 re-election bid. Trump’s weekend remarks disparaging U.S. Representative Elijah Cummings, a House of Representatives Democrat and a longtime civil rights champion, drew charges of racism from Democrats, an accusation Trump denied. The Republican president earlier in July attacked four...

It’s hard being a cisgender heterosexual conservative in Trump’s America. Just ask Kathy Zhu. The 20-year-old pageant queen was stripped of her Miss Michigan title after a string of racist tweets she wrote in 2017 and 2018 resurfaced. Now, she says “coming out as conservative is harder than coming out as gay.” After it was learned that Zhu had posted offensive musings on her social media accounts, including attacking women who wear hijabs and saying Black people have lower IQs, officials from...

Star Trek star George Takei has hit out at the Tr*mp administration, saying it has “hit a new low” over the detention camps for migrants, as well as Trump’s racist rhetoric aimed at four congresswomen of colour. Speaking to Sky News, George said: “It is an eerie and chilling echo in current politics. During the last presidential campaign, we heard the chant, ‘Lock her up,’ meaning Hillary Clinton. Now we’re hearing the chant, “Send her back.'” He compared this rhetoric to...

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump on Sunday stepped up his attacks on four liberal Democrats in Congress, all women of color who have criticized his policies, calling on them to apologize as he himself faced charges of racism. “I don’t believe the four Congresswomen are capable of loving our Country.

CNN’s Randi Kaye interviewed two Eau Claire, Wisconsin residents who supported President Trump in 2016 to see who they are supporting in the 2020 election.

Kerri Krumenauer, an employee of Wiersgalla Plumbing & Heating Company, defended the president and rejected claims that his attacks are in any way racist. “How is it racist?” Krumenauer asked. “If you don’t like...

I watched the entire Trump rally in Greenville, North Carolina with alarm for the future of the United States of America. We have a certified demagogue in the Oval Office with a Republican base that increasingly seems to support democracy only if their side wins. This crass army of angry malcontents raucously invokes America, while sledge hammering our norms and institutions that have kept us safe and prosperous. They nurse grievances, spread conspiracy theories, create lists of enemies, troll online, express...

The Tony and Grammy-winning actress called the United States senator a “disgrace” over Twitter for failing to acknowledge President Donald Tr*mp as a racist for his barbaric treatment of undocumented immigrants. “On a personal note, why don’t you just bite the bullet and come out,” she wrote. “You might just come to your senses.” LuPone’s “tone-deaf” homophobic remark was met with widespread backlash – and shock – from Twitter users because of the star’s longstanding affiliation with the LGBTQ community. “I fail...

Republican Rep. Mike Kelly (Pa.) on Tuesday attempted to take the heat off President Trump after his racist tweets targeting four congresswomen of color by cliaming he is “a person of color” because he is white. “Why do we get wrapped around the axle about everything he says,” Kelly, a member of the House Ways and Means Committee, told VICE News. “Listen, he’s not a politician.” The conservative Republican said charges of racism against the president are “way beyond the pale.” “You...
