Fox host: ‘Everybody wants to paint President Trump as a racist’

Since the historic electoral victory of Donald Trump, the leftist mainstream media has attempted to undermine his administration with a variety of biased talking points. For the most part, there have been two repeated claims by certain networks and newspapers: Trump worked with the Russians, and Trump is a racist.

When the Russian collusion allegations aren’t evidenced, the media shifts to the racism claims – and vice versa. One Fox News personality thinks the whole thing stinks. Speaking on “Fox & Friends” on Monday, Trish Regan argued that “everybody wants to paint President Trump as a racist” in the aftermath of his unproven “sh–hole countries” statement.

Does she have a point? Just turn to any television network, and you’ll see that conversation dominating the segments.

Are Democrats ‘Using Everything’ to Attack Trump?

Last week, it was reported that President Trump stated in a bipartisan immigration meeting that “all these people from s–thole countries come here.” A firestorm ensued, prompting the punditry to declare that this was the definitive evidence that the President is a racist.

Trump and several meeting attendees have denied the comments were ever made. But if the statement was uttered by the president, then does it prove he is a racist?

According to Trish Regan, Trump’s uncouth words were in a closed setting and not meant for public consumption, but Democrats want to utilize “everything they can to go after him.” Since the media elevates every comment Trump makes to a code red, it is a perfect story for the Democrats to take advantage of.

Regan did note that the President may have been comparing the economic differences between Norway and Haiti. She alluded to the stark challenges facing Haiti.

For instance, Regan pointed out Haiti’s per capita income of $837 per year, while Norway’s is an astonishing $97,000 a year.

She said on Monday:

You’re talking about two very different economies with two very different sets of opportunities for people. You’re not talking about black or white. You’re talking about socioeconomic issues. That’s how I initially read it. I said, “here we go again” because everyone wants to paint him as a racist.

Donald Trump: ‘I Am Not a Racist’

On Sunday, after a reporter asked him if he is a racist, Trump flatly denied the allegations made against him, describing himself as “the least racist person you have ever interviewed.”

That was not enough for the media.

The New York Times released its “definitive list” of supposedly proving  Trump’s racism. Anchor Don Lemon also interviewed Martin Luther King Jr’s nephew, Isaac, about the president’s alleged racism. It was an embarrassing affair when Isaac refused to call the president a racist, prompting a perturbed Lemon to apologize to viewers following a commercial break.

The racial narrative may garner headlines and spark attention, but the facts are what really matter.

Black unemployment has fallen to a record low of 4.1 percent, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS). Two of the latest polls show the president’s support among black voters has doubled since the 2016 election, despite the barrage of racist allegations by the press.

Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) defended the President on Sunday, citing his financial contributions to aid missions in Haiti. Sen. Paul told NBC:

It is unfair to draw conclusions from a remark that I think wasn’t constructive is the least we can say and I think it is unfair to all of a sudden, paint him, well, he’s a racist, when I know for a fact he cares very deeply about the people in Haiti because he helped to finance a trip, we were able to give vision back for 200 people in Haiti.

There are a lot of questions that this ultimately intersects with policy, and the only thing I regret from all of this, other than I think some people in the media have gone completely bonkers with, you know, just ad hominem on the president, I want to see an immigration compromise and you can’t have an immigration compromise if everybody is out there calling the president a racist.
