Donald Trump’s Campaign Adviser Issued Racist Statement, Said “Liberal” Women Of Color Ask “Stupid Questions” At Press Briefings

And he wonders why he's stuck putting a baby gate around the White House now.

Since the beginning of this presidency, Donald Trump’s mental health could be described as “shaky” at best. Frankly, he’s never in his life truly had it all together.

However, there have been key moments over the past three-plus years when you could really tell that Trump’s brain was coming apart at the seams — his very public impeachment process, the Jeffrey Epstein scandal, Joe Biden’s presidential candidacy announcement, etc.

Honestly, there’s really no confirming whether it’s an increase in stimulant use, an uptick in dementia symptoms, or the beginnings of a complete mental breakdown. Or maybe even a heady combination of all of the above. But whatever it is, it’s always pretty easy to tell that he’s coming off the rails.

However, this coronavirus pandemic that’s effectively shut the nation down and completely tanked the economy that he was heavily relying on for his reelection seems to have sent him on the worst downhill spiral to date.

Recently, Trump’s current mental breakdown was on full display as he launched relentless attacks against everyone from his predecessor Obama to MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough — not to mention more than a few women reporters during those ridiculous publicity stunts he tries to pass off as press briefings.

And, of course, Trump’s campaign had to find a way to try to excuse the guy’s behavior before the fellows in the white coats and black SUV come for him.

Evidently, according to them, being a racist is apparently better than being a mental patient. Because that’s the excuse they ultimately seemed to run with.

According to a report from Mediate, Trump Campaign Senior Legal Adviser Jenna Ellis came under fire recently after she complained that “liberal” women of color have been present at “every” White House press conference “and asked stupid questions.”

“This is coronavirus press conference number, what, probably somewhere in the 50s? POC liberal women have been present at every one of them and asked stupid questions. Sometimes for HOURS,” Ellis stated.

You mean… POC exist in the journalism field and Trump and his cronies are mad about it?

You don’t say.

No wonder protesters are in your front fucking yard, Donald.
