During last night’s rally in Houston, President Trump declared himself a ‘nationalist,’ which triggered CNN’s Don Lemon, as well as many other unhinged leftists, into crying ‘racist’.
Trump spoke about the unelected bureaucrats in the EU, and then pivoted onto “radical Democrats” who he said “want to turn back the clock and restore the rule of corrupt, power-hungry globalists.”
The President explained that a ‘globalist’ is a person “who wants the globe to do well, frankly, but not caring our country so much.”
“We can’t have that,” Trump said, adding “You know, they have a word. It sort of became old-fashioned. It’s called a nationalist.”
“And I say really, we’re not supposed to use that word. You know what I am? I am a nationalist. Use that word.” Trump continued.
In response to Trump’s declaration, the crowd broke out into chants of “USA!”
This triggered a wave of unhinged hate.
CNN’s Don Lemon unsurprisingly reacted by crying ‘racist’.
“Wow,” Lemon said while laughing “We’re gonna talk about that word tonight. It is a favorite of the alt-right and is loaded with nativist and racial undertones.”
“And globalist. Well, globalist has been used as a slur of sorts, sometimes even against those in the administration, often with anti-semitic overtones.” Lemon added.
“Which just happened to make the president come right out and embrace nationalism. Openly. And claim that mantle. What has happened here?” the host continued.
Lemon wasn’t alone in his assertions, as the blue check mob and their non verified minion demons threw their collective toys out of the twitter cot:
The President of the United States openly identifies himself as a nationalist, calls for the jailing of his political opponents, attacks the press & cozies up to dictators, while Republicans in Congress stand idly by. The stakes of this elections couldn't be higher for democracy. https://t.co/2A7ijy9QSO

Okay folks I am still stuck on Trump saying out loud at a rally tonight that he is a nationalist. Let’s not let this get lost in the chaos. This is a big admission which should terrify us all.

What Trump did tonight is finally finish the rhetorical journey. He acknowledged what he's been the whole time: a nationalist, one of many in the world. He frames politics in transactional and deeply nationalistic terms, focused on perceived threats to his concept of the nation.

Donald Trump announced tonight that he’s a “nationalist.” It’s not clear if he meant white nationalist or Russian nationalist.

This was said seconds after he used the anti-Semitic dogwhistle term "globalist" to denigrate Democrats. https://t.co/o5uwgr36SG

Trump says he wants you to call him a nationalist. That’s right, the
Chinese tie importing,
Saudi Arabia apologizing,
North Korean forgiving and
Foreign money borrowing
President is asking you to believe that he places America’s interests first. Haha.

Trump is a "nationalist," except when he lets the Russians, North Koreans, and Saudis tell him how to act. Tough guy in front of a crowd of fans, but not when sitting next to dictators. https://t.co/a6WC0nxrcX

"You know what I am? I’m a nationalist, okay? Nationalist. Use that word, use that word."–Trump
I guess it's coming out day for Nazis.
