Speaking before a crowd Wednesday in Atlanta, Georgia, businessman Herman Cain made remarks about GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump that might have left some in the mainstream media bewildered.
Cain said that liberals have blurred issues in this presidential election because they want to label Trump as something that he is not. He said there are “a lot of lies out there” about Trump, and he wanted to set the record straight about one of the biggest of those lies, which was that Trump is a racist.
“I grew up in Atlanta, Georgia. I know what a racist looks like when I see one, and Donald Trump is not a racist,” Cain said, according to The Hill.
“At this particular point in our history, it is up to us to help get this nation to make the right decisions as to which fork in the road we’re going to take,” he added — which sounded a little like Yogi Berra, but we knew what he meant.
The radio host also said he was disappointed with former president candidate Mitt Romney, accusing him of using “trickle-down racism” as a reasons for not supporting Trump.
Cain said the move was nothing more than a “cutesy soundbite.”
Watch his remarks in the video below:
Cain is not the only black person that has thrown his support behind The Donald. We cannot forget Dr. Ben Carson, who has repeatedly expressed his support for Trump.
In addition, former “Celebrity Apprentice” Omarosa Onee Manigault recently made the same claim as Cain — that Trump is not a racist.
It’s one of the few things progressives have left to throw at Trump, but if polls are any indication, not many people are buying the notion that Trump is racist.
Which is why being racist is an accusation that the left needs to constantly repeat. They need uninformed voters to believe that Trump is racist to get Hillary Clinton in the White House.
