Donald Trump can hardly string a sentence together, so expecting him to understand the complexities of the land expropriation debate is wasting your time.
Luckily for Trump, he has Fox News, who are so used to dumbing things down for their viewers that even Donald can follow along.
Yesterday we showed you how Sean Hannity was doing his utmost to show that the Manafort / Cohen bombshells weren’t at all bad for POTUS, which is a bit like saying that this latest holiday overseas has actually been good for Adam Catzavelos.
Today, Fox are doing their best to stoke up anger along racial lines, endlessly talking about how Mollie Tibbetts’ murder-accused is an illegal immigrant, before turning their attention to the most recent land expropriation developments and farm murders here in South Africa.
It’s clear that Donald was watching, because after the segment aired on Fox News it was straight to Twitter.
Oh, we also know he was watching because he tagged the network and Tucker Carlson:
You may remember that Tucker covered the ‘racist land grabs’ back in March – he’s the guy who constantly looks like he’s holding in a turd.
If you can stomach it, here’s Tucker’s latest segment:
Amazing how you can spin anything to criticise Obama and cover for Trump.
Of course the issue of land expropriation deserves to be scrutinised, publicly and at length (in particular how the ANC are certain to bungle the process), but the likes of Fox News and Donald Trump are utterly incapable of using it for anything else other than deflection and race-baiting their viewers.
In response to Trump, the official SA Government Twitter account offered this comment:
