Make America Great Again, “Racist Code”? But Clintons Said It In Their Campaigns
Was there ever a more blatant hypocrite than William Jefferson Clinton? Honestly. His hypocrisy is truly disgusting. You may remember him hauling that enormous Bible around (for the photographers) after he was caught in his sordid affair with a White House intern. Now he goes before an African-American audience claiming that the phrase “make America great again” is racist code! “Every white southerner,” he told them, “knows exactly what that phrase means.” Oh yeah? It took about fifteen minutes for Clinton’s critics to go back through his career and find him using the phrase himself, time and time again–including during his wife’s 2008 primary campaign against an African-American opponent (who defeated her and went on to become President). So has he just admitted using racist code throughout his political career? Readers of this page know my very, very low opinion of Donald Trump; but Bill Clinton seems determined to make Trump look good by comparison.
