We thought CNN had won the day with its series of chyrons on President Trump’s tweets calling out Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her squad. Check this out:

So obviously CNN didn’t hold back on calling President Trump’s tweets racist, but it took the Washington Post to take things to the next level: Not only are Trump’s tweets racist, but he tweets them from the White House, which was built by slaves.
Trump’s racist tweets were written in the White House, which slaves helped build https://t.co/QgeStf3WYL

Did they have this piece just sitting around and were waiting for an excuse to run it? Because we’re not seeing the correlation. When President Clinton was banging an intern, he was doing it in the White House, which was built by slaves, which makes it even worse.
Here come the takes nobody was asking for.

This may be the most ridiculous post by wapo, ever. And that includes Ruth Marcus’ work. 🤢

And this tweet was written at WaPo, where journalism died…

The founder of the Washington Post lived on a plantation that once held 128 slaves.

Slaves helped build or were forced to build lots of structures throughout history. We don't need people to remind black people that we were slaves or oppressed every day. It would be better for everyone if we moved on and did not consider ourselves perpetual victims.

This country was built on racism. Everyone knows that. The question is how do we move on from it hopefully. So not into opening old wounds.

Too bad it wasn’t about race, it was about non patriotic politicians who verbally slam our wonderful country.

Get out applies to any race, thus not racist. Unlike Omar openly hating Jews, supporting antifa, and openly blaming Christians for 911
