Dems Go Berserk Against Trump on Martin Luther King Day

Jan. 22, 2019 (EIRNS)—At yesterday’s celebration of Martin Luther King Day at various locales around the country, sleazy Democrats issued a series of vile attacks on President Donald Trump, charging him with racism, bigotry, etc. etc.

Taking the cake was the attack by House Democratic Caucus Chairman Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY), who told constituents in Harlem that “we have a hater in the White House; the birther in chief, the grand wizard of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue”—a clear reference to the Ku Klux Klan.

Next in line was Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), who told a NAACP gathering in South Carolina “that we now have a President of the United States who is a racist.... Trump is trying to divide us up by the color of our skin, by our gender, by the country that we came from, by our religion.”

Not to be outdone, Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) said that Trump’s 2016 election had been “a giant step back” for all the things that Martin Luther King, Jr. believed in.
