Well, thank goodness racism is solved now. Just like it was when Barack Obama was president!

Now, as we swear in a nearly 80-year old, rich, white career politician who has repeatedly made racist remarks and supported racist policies, the nation can finally heal on matters of race. https://t.co/ZjSuGBz1Le

Quite possibly the world’s largest dumpster fire.
This is exactly the kind of stupid, lazy argument that made a Trump presidency possible. They haven’t learned a thing.

They have literally learned nothing.
