A racist New York City congressman made a point to try to paint Donald Trump as a racist by falsely stating that every racist in America voted for Donald Trump.
Hakeem Jeffries (D), who represents East New York and Coney Island, said “so many folks dripping in hatred flocked to his candidacy.”
“Why would people that worship at the altar of white supremacy [be] drawn to Donald Trump’s campaign?” he asked.
“That’s not to say that every American who voted for Donald Trump is a racist. We do know that every racist in America voted for Donald Trump,” Jeffries said. “That’s a problem.”
He said Trump’s election is a “backlash” against “eight years of progress” in America.
Jeffries said people should be reminded that Trump “perpetrated the racist lie that Barack Obama was not born in the United States of America.”
He added that he has doubts that Attorney General Jeff Sessions will prosecute hate crimes because he is “straight out of central casting” for a “good ol’ boy.”
Why is it that the people who cry ‘racism’ the most, are usually the most racist?
People blasted this idiot Democrat for his remarks over Twitter…

No way every racist voted for Trump.
I guarantee Sharpton, Jeremiah Wright and Farrakhan didn't vote for him.
