Thursday on MSNBC, grandstanding, failed presidential candidate Cory “Spartacus” Booker called President Trump “callous” and “disrespectful” for planning to hold a rally in Tulsa, OK on June 19, or “Juneteenth,” a holiday marking the end of slavery.
Asked by host Joy Reid what he makes of Trump’s choice, Booker replied, “It speaks to not only his profound ignorance and callous disregard for American history, but even the people around him. This is painful…
“So for him not to recognize this but not only to go there to do a rally where we are sure to see signs of many of the supporters who do believe in white supremacy’s failure to actually condemn those elements of those narrow elements of his base,” he added inarticulately, “but for him to do it on Juneteenth which he should be recognizing as the president of the United States is all the more disrespectful and painful but not surprising.”
Trump likely will recognize the holiday at the rally, in which case leftists like Booker and Reid will find a way to condemn that too as “evidence” of his racism.
