Cooper: Trump Using Birtherism on Harris Is ‘Racist Slime’ Used for Centuries

‘We all know the birtherism he did against Barack Obama’

RUSH EXCERPT:

CARLSON: “Very serious charge. That’s very serious. The president of the United States, most powerful man in the world, doesn’t know if that’s true or not, but it’s very serious. There’s nothing serious about it. Frankly, based on that, about him. It is pathetic. What’s very serious is a president of the United States playing with and echoing racist tropes for centuries. This kind of racist slime has been going on for centuries. They did it with Chinese people, they did it with Irish and Italians, Africans who were enslaved. You name it. Making people other than. They’re other than American. Other than patriotic. Other than law abiding. Other than just like you and me. Whether it’s because of the color of someone’s skin, their gender, who they love, their religion, whatever it’s based on, it’s nothing new. And yeah, it’s worked in the past. And that is what this president is hoping again. Now, as I said, this is not the first time he’s done this because he was a candidate, we all know the birtherism he did against Barack Obama. I talked to citizen Trump about that back then, but also characterizing the claims he would say always other people are saying.”
