Trump only pretends to condemn white supremacists

The famous anti-papist, anti-immigrant, Samuel Morse, telegraphed, “What hath God wrought?” What can be said of the infamous anti-immigrant of the day: ” What has Trump—rot?”

It seemed a bit cute how he stood in the back of the Federal Reserve Chairman acting like he actually knew something about complex economics, but it was just tragic when he pretended to have empathy for the mass shooting victims, while glazedly reading prepared remarks from a teleprompter.

He has his own way of telegraphing his true feelings to his white supremacist supporters, while poorly pretending to condemn them. One can only hope that the other MAGA supporters aren’t white supremacists (be there any?) can see through this and finally dump him.
