MSNBC airs 80-second supercut of Trump's racist remarks over the past 30 years

Video shows Mr Trump making birther claims about Barack Obama, telling Proud Boys to “stand back and stand by.”

https://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/americas/us-election/video-donald-trump-racist-barack-obama-central-park-five-us-election-2020-b1426977.html

A devastating 80-second montage of Donald Trump making racist remarks was aired by a TV news network before the host asked voters: "Are you for or against this?"

The MSNBC video begins with Mr Trump's comments made about the Central Park Five case, in which he called for five black and Hispanic teens were charged and found guilty of beating and raping a woman jogging in Central Park in 1989. Ultimately it was discovered that they were wrongfully accused.

Mr Trump took out a full page ad in the New York City newspaper calling for the death penalty to be reinstated and to "bring back our police" two weeks after the attack. Even after the real killer came forward in 2002, Mr Trump refused to apologise for demonising the teens. He called a documentary made about the case a "one sided piece of garbage" because he believed it should have involved the alleged crimes that the young men committed.

Later in the video, it focuses on Mr Trump's championing of the racist birther conspiracy theory against former President Barack Obama. Mr Trump claimed that Mr Obama was not born in America, and even after Hawaii verified Mr Obama's birth certificate, he claimed many people did not believe the birth certificate was legitimate.

2. All trite and outdated

It's like watching the bus go by every 40 minutes, all day. Every day. Every week. Every time - I don't even hear it anymore

5. I watched it.

Its clips of things we've seen over and over. Let's not fight with yesterday, we gotta get through Tuesday. Maybe at this point it's more a battle for votes than one of identity. I get easily distracted so I've got to be careful.

6. At the bottom of the funnel to the creek

They come for the corn.
Scratch that, that's the deer. The bus goes down the road this side of the funnel. You've been there?

11. It was dry humor.

Combining a busy bus route only found in cities typically, with the setting of someone watching a deer trail. I thought it odd to ask a specific response on a generalization?

15. Yeah, that went sideways

Had I interpreted the bus as the link to the video, nuff said.

I felt the video would distract people from their current framing of the election, bringing them to tilt windmills. I have no qualifications to decide, but I wouldn't send you to a bad eatery either.

A dangerous bus it is.

10. Anybody have a direct link to the video?

My dinosaur computer doesn't like the Independent site. It's on DU, somewhere, because I saw it yesterday. I really want to see it again because it's that good.
