Bill Maher: Donald Trump ‘loves to pick fights with black people’

Donald J. Trump swears up and down he’s the “least racist” person we know, so Bill Maher is asking him to explain his constant problems with black people.

The president insists he’s not a racist, but Bill Maher isn’t buying it!

Last night on Real Time, Maher dedicated a “New Rule” to taking on Trump’s racism. As Maher explains, Donald Trump loves to talk about how he’s not a racist at all, going as far as to say he’s the “least racist” person there is. Then why, as Maher is asking, does the only consistent thing in Trump’s life seem to be “picking fights with black people”?

Maher vehemently stands by this. “Of all his myriad insanities, if I had to pick one line to put on his tombstone, it would be, ‘Here lies Donald J. Trump. Picked fights with black people,” the Real Time host declares. And while Maher could just leave the joke at that, he puts together a list of the many people Trump has taken on during his presidency. The ever-growing list includes:

  • Colin Kaepernick
  • Lavar Ball
  • Barack Obama
  • Eric Holder
  • The war widow from the failed raid in Nigeria
  • The war widow’s congresswoman
  • The Central Park Five
  • Steph Curry
  • The UCLA basketball players arrested in China
  • Whoopi Goldberg
  • April Ryan
  • The entire NFL
  • The cast of “Hamilton”
  • The city of Atlanta
  • Chicago
  • Nigeria
  • Haiti
  • …and the entire continent of Africa.

While I’m not saying Donald Trump is a racist (please don’t sue me), the way these names add up so quickly sure lends credence to the possibility…
