Let's go to the tape...

According to Hillary and her surrogates, Trump is a horrible racist.  He's a bigot, he hates pretty much everybody and, if he wasn't running for President, he'd probably be riding around the deep south wearing a sheet.  He's just that awful. 

Of course, no one ever said any of this during the last 40 years - over the course of which Trump was a very public figure. It's amazing that someone could be so famous, and yet no one, anywhere, ever mentioned his rampant bigotry. Like so many others, Trump's supposed racism only came to light once he threated to derail the coronation political careers of Hillary and Bill Clinton.  Funny how that always seems to happen.

Sadly, the "Trump's a racist" narrative has been dealt a severe blow - by none other than Jesse Jackson.

In case you can't hear the audio, Jackson invited Trump to speak because he understands the “challenges and opportunities to embrace under-served communities.” 

Jackson seemed very impressed with Trump, saying:

“He is deceptive in that his social style is of such, one can miss his seriousness and commitment to success, which is beyond argument. When we opened this Wall Street project, he gave us space at 40 Wall Street, which was to make a statement about our having a presence there.

Beyond that, in terms of reaching out and being inclusive, he’s done that too. He has this sense of the curious and a will to make things better. Aside from all of his style, and his pizazz, he’s a serious person who is an effective builder of people.”

Now, I know what you're saying. "Anyone who Jesse Jackson praises is immediately suspect."  I get that and, in general, I share the opinion. Jackson is a shyster and shakedown artist of the highest order.

However, for just a moment, roll with it.

The left is trying desperately to sell the idea that Trump hates anyone who's less white than Casper the Friendly Ghost. Virtually every pro-Hillary sycophant now works some variation of the "R-word" into their appearances.  It's the standard Democrat playbook and, admittedly, it's worked for them in the past. Since they own most of the media, they have an easy time shoveling their manure.

Here, however, we have the patron saint of left-wing race-baiting blowing a massive hole in the narrative.  Jesse Jackson is the guy they trot out to tell you who IS a racist.  ...And yet, here he is, offering a clear, succinct, defense of the man they're trying to destroy.
