No matter how you slice it, it’s a complete fabrication and a bad look, fake concerned face and all. And they know it.
And I was just start to miss the eight years of the Obama administration where everyone was a Racist™…
Instead of trotting out former President Obama, who was arguably one of THE most divisive presidents in American history, Democrats filmed former First Lady Michelle Obama spearing Trump on his handling of riots driven by Black Lives Matter and antifa. Naturally, she blamed Trump and called him a racist.
.@MichelleObama on BLM riots: Trump is “pinning [violence] on what’s been an overwhelmingly peaceful movement for racial solidarity; it’s true, research backs it up; only a tiny fraction of demonstrations have had any violence at all … What the president is doing is … racist.” pic.twitter.com/7wBsmACiCQ

Full text of clip:
“They’re stoking fears about black and brown Americans, lying about how minorities will destroy the suburbs, whipping up violence and intimidation, and they’re pinning it all on what’s been an overwhelmingly peaceful movement for racial solidarity, it’s true. Research backs it up. Only a tiny fraction of demonstrations have had any violence at all. So what the president is doing is once again patently false, it’s morally wrong, and yes, it is racist. But that doesn’t mean it won’t work. Because this is a difficult time, a confusing time, and when people hear these lies and crazy conspiracies repeated over and over again, they don’t know what to think. With everything going on in their lives, they don’t have time to fact check falsehoods being spread throughout the internet and even reasonable people might get scared. And the one thing this president is really, really good at, is using fear and confusion, and spreading lies to win.”
The second part is arguably worse than calling Trump a racist. She suggests everyone is too dumb and busy to separate fact from fiction. And it’s that exact belief that cost Democrats in 2016 and will cost them again. Not to mention her suggestion that a president who *just* told the public not to be afraid of the coronavirus wields fear to garner power.
