Last night, respected reporter Brian Karem announced that the Trump White House had suspended his press credentials because he’d gotten into an argument with alleged Nazi and proud white supremacist Sebastian Gorka. That’s right, Trump was siding with the bad guy, as usual. But as it turns out, that was just the half of it.
Seemingly emboldened by his decision to side with an alleged Nazi while taking a stand against America, Donald Trump did what he always does: he took things even further. Sticking with the Nazi theme, Trump woke up this morning and twice retweeted a woman named Katie Hopkins. If you haven’t heard of her, you’re better off; she’s essentially the Ann Coulter of Great Britain.
Trump’s retweets of Hopkins were disgusting, including a bizarre and thinly veiled xenophobic reference to the “nipple-height Mayor of Londonistan.” But if you really want to know what makes Hopkins tick, two years ago she called for a “final solution” against Muslims. In other words, she’s advocating for genocide while using Nazi language. And the President of the United States thought it would be a good idea to start retweeting the rest of her racist rhetoric.
The thing is, Donald Trump has retweeted Katie Hopkins before – but he only does it once in a blue moon. Is it a coincidence that he retweeted a Nazi sympathizer the morning after he allowed an alleged Nazi to decide which reporters get White House access? We doubt it. As Palmer Report explained this morning, there’s something mysterious going on within the Republican Congress that appears to be really bad news for Trump. He’s in deep trouble, and he knows it, and he’s trying to rally his bottom feeding base while he still can.
