Trump just gave a speech so racist MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace refused to air it live

This afternoon at the White House, President Trump embarked on what might be the most racist speech he’s ever given.

In a simply breathtaking torrent of xenophobic conspiracy theories and outlandish falsehoods, the president promised to build enormous concentration camps in which to hold “millions” of people and threatened to shoot migrants at the border for throwing rocks — and that was only the tip of the iceberg.

The Toronto Star’s Daniel Dale offered a small glimpse into the horrifying things the President was saying during his rambling, incoherent screed:

His speech was such a despicable abomination that MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace decided that she could not, in good conscience, promote and publicize such disgusting lies.

It’s a show of journalistic responsibility that the mainstream media needs to learn extremely quickly before they end up repeating the same mistakes from 2016 all over again. No fact-check or “um, actually” segment has nearly as powerful an effect as blasting the president’s racist ramblings with wall-to-wall coverage in desperate pursuit of hate-watch ratings like certain other networks like CNN, who aired live all 27 minutes of Trump’s disgusting press conference.

Nothing the President said was true or had any redeeming value other than dehumanizing and fearmongering about innocent people who are simply fleeing US-sponsored poverty and violence in their home nations.

The consequences of his dangerous rhetoric made themselves clear this weekend when a white supremacist massacred 11 people at a Pittsburgh synagogue after becoming convinced that Jews like Trump’s favorite boogeyman George Soros were funding the “invading” caravan of migrants, a conspiracy theory that the President had been dancing around for the past few weeks and continued to do so after the attack.

Silencing Trump and keeping his lies from reaching the public has never been so important as the midterms approach. Kudos to Nicolle Wallace for taking a stand against Trump’s bigotry.
