So, the White House just came up with a solution to Trump’s racist reputation. They believe they can prevent the president from being a bigot by having him talk to the only Republican African-American Senator about race.
As reported by Axios:
President Trump’s botched Charlottesville response was the low point of his presidency for some of his key aides. Now, he has a chance for a reset, at the same time that he’s reveling in the adulation for his surprise deal with Democrats. Trump meets one-on-one Wednesday with Sen. Tim Scott of South Carolina, the only Republican senator who is African-American, who told Vice after Charlottesville that the president’s “moral authority is compromised.
Aides say Trump is most likely to take in information if there’s a personal story attached to it. The session with Scott provides exactly such an opportunity. The moment could be fleeting or consequential, depending on whether Trump realizes that, at 71, he has a lot of catching up to do.
Can we just address the fact that we have a man in the Oval Office that needs to educated about racism? The president is looked to provide moral leadership to the nation, but Donald Trump needs help from Tim Scott to explain racism to him–which is absolutely pathetic.
But let’s get to the core of this meeting: This is just another publicly stunt for Trump. His real motive of this meeting has nothing to do with racism, or listening to Senator Scott’s story–no–the reality show spokesperson just wants to receive more coverage on cable news because he realizes that’s the only thing he’s got going for him.
