According to author Michaela Angela Davis, who appeared on CNN’s New Day this week to discuss the fallout from the ROSEANNE CONTROVERSY, you can sum up Trump supporters with one word, and it’s not “deplorable.”

No, Davis believes that anyone who supports the President of the United States is a racist, and she has the facts to prove it. Okay, she doesn’t have any facts, but she does have plenty of academic buzzwords that make it sound like she knows what she’s talking about. When it comes to CNN news coverage, that basically comes down to the same thing.

Co-host John Berman kicked the discussion off with a question: “The argument that some people are making, that Roseanne Barr maybe felt empowered to talk like this because of President Trump – I mean, look, she’s got a history of saying things like this completely on her own that have gone back before this administration. How do you counter that with the ‘rapid-ish’ response from ABC?”

We can’t quite understand the question, but Davis apparently found something in there that deserved a response.

“Well,” she replied, “they made a connection together when Trump touted her ratings, almost took credit for them.”

Davis said the president “made it more popular to be openly racist.”

Yeah, there’s nothing that kicks your social standing up a notch or two like flying a Nazi flag outside your house and telling black people to go back to Africa. That’s really the “cool” thing to do in the age of Trump.

Of course, when you expand the definition of racism to include, well, anything that goes against the liberal agenda…yes, we suppose it is “in” to be racist these days. Mainly because it’s impossible to live your life WITHOUT being racist under these conditions. We’re pretty sure we saw more than one blogger call Kanye a racist last month. It’s gotten quite silly.

In any event, Davis wasn’t done making absurd claims.

“I think it’s important that we don’t make Trump seem this untouchable thing, you know, that no one gets to be Trump but Trump,” she said. “Tens of millions of people voted for him after he showed his cards for years.”

She provided no examples of these “cards” that Trump showed for years, nor did she mention that, when he was the host of The Apprentice (before his attacks on Obama), he was at the very top of the list of celebrities adored by black viewers.

“But are you suggesting that they’re racist?” CNN’s Berman asked, meaning Trump’s voters.

“Absolutely, yes,” Davis said without hesitation.

“They may not all be violently racist,” she conceded, but by voting for Trump’s “anti-blackness,” they had revealed in themselves a racism of their own.

Davis is hardly the first liberal to make this claim, and we fervently hope she’s not the last. The more the left tries to play this game of identity politics, the smaller their chances of EVER getting back in power becomes. By all means, keep calling all of Trump’s supporters racist. We’ll see you in 2020.
