Time Will Tell…And It Has

Time Will Tell…And It Has

This picture has been making its way around social media since the presidential election. While we love seeing diversity on Trump’s team, our question is this:

Will President Trump’s policies reveal him to be a woman hating racist homophobe?

Time will tell…And it has.

I originally wrote this the week of the election. Since then Trump has nominated Jeff Sessions for Attorney General, Mike Pompeo for CIA director, and Reince Priebus for Chief of Staff, all older white men. Today Trump finally added some diversity to his team. He announced the nominations of Betsy DeVos as Education Secretary, Nikki Haley as the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations and is looking at Ben Carson to head the Department of Housing and Urban Development.

One Slur Over Another

Paul LePage, Governor of Maine, chose to prove he is homophobic while trying to disprove he is racist.  Recently, Governor LePage made comments that “men with names like ‘D-Money, Smoothie, Shifty’ were dealing drugs in Maine and impregnating white women. The Governor has also said that he keeps a binder full of drug traffickers arrested in Maine and that more than ninety percent of them were black or Hispanic.

Governor LePage received word that state representative Drew Gattine accused him of being racist, so the governor called Rep. Gattine and had this to say:

Mr. Gattine, this is Governor Paul Richard LePage. I would like to talk to you about your comments about my being a racist, you cocksucker. I want to talk to you. I want you to prove that I’m a racist. I’ve spent my life helping black people and you little son-of-a-bitch, socialist cocksucker. You, I need you to, just freakin’, I want you to record this and make it public because I am after you. Thank you.

Rep. Gattine denies that he accused Governor LePage of being a racist.  Now we have a choice, Governor: racist, homophobe or both.
