For a long time, Democrats have attacked Donald Trump of racism. But one liberal senator is now eating his words.
Donald Trump, long before he became president, was celebrated for his work support for Civil Rights. He was even honored in the past for helping minority Americans.
That all ended, when he ran for president. Suddenly, to Democrats, he was a big ol’ racist.
One senator had long claimed Trump spread division between Americans of different races.
But now his own closet is spilling open.
From The Daily Wire:
On Friday, Rhode Island Democrat Senator Sheldon Whitehouse — who had slammed former President Trump for “toiling to deepen the fault lines in American life” and claimed, “We can and must do better to root out systemic racism in its many forms and meet America’s full promise of justice for all” — was asked about his membership in the all-white private Bailey’s Beach Club in Newport, Rhode Island.
Here’s Whitehouse in his own words on video:
Sen. Whitehouse (unfortunate name, huh?), a Democrat, criticized Trump by saying he “deepened” problems among Americans.
He even recently talked about “systemic racism,” an apparent pet issue for Democrats, these days.
But, as it turns out, Whitehouse is a member of a reportedly white-only beach club. In fact, his family has been members for years. His wife is one of the club’s largest shareholders.
Whitehouse was asked about this in 2017. He said he’d like to see the club change that. Now, just recently, he was confronted again about it.
You probably won’t be surprised to learn it’s still white-only. Whitehouse claimed the club was “still working on that.”
Uh… working on “that” for four years? What’s there to work on? Just make sure there is no rule that forbids someone from joining based on race. Is that so hard?
I’m sure there are plenty of black folks who would love to sign up for this beach club. Or is Whitehouse saying there aren’t any people of color in Newport, RI who want to join up?
Maybe his club isn’t working hard enough on that. You know, when Trump bought his famous country club, the first thing he changed was the “white-only” rule.
Didn’t take him years to do it.
Here’s another question. If Whitehouse is so upset about “systemic racism” why is he still member of a club that he seems to admit is not at all diverse.
Isn’t there a word for that? Oh, hypocrite.
- Democratic Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse criticized Trump, accusing him of racism.
- Yet the senator is a member of a club that only has white members.
- When asked about this, the Democrat claimed they were “working on it.”
