Former Bush Official: "All Trump Supporters Are Racists"



Former George W. Bush Treasury official Bruce Bartlett has claimed that "all (100%) of Trump supporters are racists."

Bartlett, who also served as a domestic policy advisor to Ronald Reagan, posted the message on his Facebook page.

"There is no longer any doubt – ALL (100%) of Trump supporters are racists. If you don't like it, fuck you," he wrote.

Bartlett's memory appears to be failing.

Hillary Clinton, in her infamous "basket of deplorables" quote, insinuated that half of Trump supporters were racist bigots.

"You know, to just be grossly generalistic, you could put half of Trump's supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables. Right?" Clinton said. "The racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic—you name it. And unfortunately there are people like that. And he has lifted them up."

It didn't work. Reference: November 8, 2016.

If Bartlett is attempting to dissuade Republicans from voting for Trump's re-election in 2020, he might want to devise a new way of convincing them that hasn't already spectacularly failed.

He subsequently returned to Facebook to write another post in which he complained about "an outpouring of attacks and hatred toward me," while also making reference to "pro-Trump scum".

Because calling 63 million people racist is sure to provoke a friendly response, isn't it?
