Remember Donald Trump? He disappeared from view after Barack Obama landed a hefty one-two combination on the presidential hopeful by mocking him mercilessly at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner and then going all Team America and killing Osama Bin Laden.
Trump has, however, made attempts to claw back some of the limelight. In the past, he has made clear that he has a “great relationship with the blacks”. Today, however, he felt compelled to underline just how great this relationship is. In a variation of the “Some of my best friends are [fill in race/ethnicity/sexuality/gender as appropriate]” line, Trump pointed out that a black person had once won The Apprentice as proof that he is not racist.
Well, you know, when it comes to racism and racists, I am the least racist person there is. And I think most people who know me would tell you that. I am the least racist, I’ve had great relationships. In fact, Randal Pinkett won, as you know, on The Apprentice a little while ago, a couple of years ago. And Randall’s been outstanding in every way. So I am the least racist person.
