Michelle Obama on Tuesday labeled President Trump as “racist” for talking about violence at recent anti-police brutality protests and for saying he defended the suburbs against low-income housing.
Obama said in a 26-minute video touting Democratic candidate Joe Biden that Republicans are “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.”
She continued: “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.”
Trump, recovering at the White House after three nights in the hospital for COVID-19 treatment, did not immediately return fire on Twitter.
The simple truth is that some protests have turned into riots. In fact, enough have done so that it is being estimated that as much as $2,000,000,000 in damage has occur from BLM connected ‘protests.’
Those are just a couple of pictures but i assure you there are many more just like it.
Michelle Obama says you’re racist if you point out that Black Lives Matter “protests” often devolve into riots, looting and random violence. pic.twitter.com/18Nc9Kmrzk
