Former Attorney General Eric Holder said an extremely racist remark about President Trump, and the liberal media didn’t say a thing about it. Holder said he would be glad to be unshackled from his old job because employment with the National Democratic Redistricting Committee (NDRC) lets him lash out, like calling President Trump “orange man,” reports The Washington Times.
The NDRC’s chairman recently went on the road in Virginia to do a get-out-the-vote effort on behalf of Lt. Gov. Ralph Northam, the Democratic nominee that just won the Governor’s seat.
In an interview with Politico, Holder talked about everything from the NDRC’s efforts to raise over $30 million for gubernatorial races to Trump’s alleged role in empowering “neo-Nazis and white nationalists.”
“You don’t do politics when you’re attorney general, but as a private citizen and as a defender of the Obama legacy, I’m free to say what I want and to say it in the way that I’d like to,” Holder told “Off Message,” podcast from Politico.
The title of the episode was “Eric Holder Is Tired of Being Polite,” and he sure did show that with his racist comments.
“We need to send Donald Trump a message,” Holder said, Politico reported. “You’re telling Donald Trump that’s not the America I want. We want the America of Barack Obama.”
Holder continues to claim that President Trump has given a “license” to a portion of the electorate to act in culturally poisonous ways. He claims that Trump validates white supremacists and supports what they say.
“The president sets a moral tone, and I think in that regard President Trump has not done the job we expect of our leaders,” Holder said. “The election of Barack Obama did not magically transform us as a people and eradicate bigotry, eradicate neo-Nazis and white nationalists. They were still there, but they didn’t feel empowered in a way that I think they do now.”
“I think partially,” Holder said. “It’s not totally. I can’t put it all on him, but I think in answer to your earlier question — ‘Is this a different America?’ — I think we’re going to know on the basis of the election we see here in Virginia [on Nov. 7], what happens in the midterms in 2018, and ultimately what happens in 2020.”
