On the Today Show, co-host Craig Melvin asked the panel why blackface seems "all of a sudden front and center in America again?”
Princeton University Professor Eddie Glaude Jr. responded by tying Northam’s scandal to the president.
Aha! A university professor! We've all heard the expression that something is "so stupid that only a university professor could believe it." This is one of the best examples I've seen. Here it is, dear readers, in all its idiotic glory:
"I think it has something to do with what Donald Trump has unleashed. It has something to do with the reservoir that’s underneath our politics that can always be activated at any moment,” Glaude Jr. explained. "So it’s not like it’s something new has happened. It’s always underneath. It’s the undertow.”
MSNBC political analyst Zerlina Maxwell agreed with the Princeton professor.
"You know, young children of color are dealing with kids saying, "‘Build the wall,’” Maxwell told the panel. "Donald Trump has normalized this overt display of racism.”
So "build the wall" is an overt display of racism. Who knew? I thought it had to do with trying to keep illegals -- many of whom are criminal drug-dealers and murderers -- from overrunning the country.
Anyhow, the article just gets funnier (and sadder at the same time). It's here: https://www.foxnews.com/entertainment/nbc-news-panel-blames-trump-for-gov-ralph-northams-blackface-scandal
