Trump Calls Clinton A Bigot?

Tonight Trump shouted during a speech that Hillary Clinton is a bigot, and that Clinton doesn’t care about minorities.

Seriously?

He claims that African American unemployment is far higher than it really is. He also claims that African Americans are living mostly in crappy neighborhoods and get shot all the time walking down the street. These two claims are demonstrably, provably, false.

So given that the Clinton Foundation has provided millions of dollars both in this country and overseas to support programs to battle poverty specifically for various minority communities, makes his claim about Clinton being a bigot quite suspect.

Given the definition of a bigot as a “a person who has strong, unreasonable ideas, esp. about race or religion, and who thinks anyone who does not have the same beliefs is wrong” (Cambridge Academic Content Dictionary), I think that Mr. Trump is on very perilous ground. His statements about Hispanics (Mexicans in particular) and minority populations such as African Americans and Muslims are clearly bigoted under that definition. Further, I can’t think of a single thing that Clinton has said that would be considered bigoted.

So once again, we have Trump shouting accusations, without providing anything to substantiate his shouting, and not a word of any policy to address any of the issues he claims are problems.

It really looks to me like the guy is just trying to bluster and BS his way into the Presidency.
