We’ve been reporting here about the increasingly vocal efforts of the #blacklivesmatter activists to disrupt the presidential campaign. On the Democrat side, they’ve succeeded with Bernie Sanders, Hillary Clinton and Martin O’Malley.But they might not have so much luck with Donald Trump.
In an interview with Jeanine Pirro for her Fox News program “Justice” set to air Saturday night, Trump had some rather strong words for the “movement” – in particular after Martin O’Malley felt the need to apologize for saying “all lives matter.”O’Malley, in fact was “politically incorrect” with his apology, Trump said, according to Politico. “How can you apologize when you say black lives matter — which is true — white lives matter, which is true — all lives [matter] — which is true. And then they get angry because you said white and all…we don’t want you to mention that. What’s he need to apologize for?” Trump asked.
But Trump saved his strongest words for O’Malley himself saying, “And then he apologized like a little baby, like a disgusting, little, weak, pathetic baby. And that’s the problem with our country,” Trump said, according to a clip aired on “Fox and Friends.”
One of many problems with our country, Mr. Trump.As we reported here, the Black Lives Matter folks have a REAL problem with the statement “all lives matter” because they actually see it as a “violent response.” I thought a violent response was smashing windows and burning cars, but I’m old fashioned that way.
In any event, it’s refreshing to hear someone on the national stage express candidly what many are feeling. And that’s why he’s top of the polls right now.
