If there’s one thing the media cannot tolerate, it’s the thought of African-Americans supporting Donald Trump.
MSNBC’s Chris Hayes could not resist race baiting and brought up the birther question to former Apprentice star, Omarosa Manigault. But she was having none of it:
“We have young black men being killed in this country, we have people rioting in the streets of Charlotte, and you wanna start with birther?” she said. “Shame on you.”

Those in the media, like MSNBC’s Hayes, can no sooner get their heads around Omarosa’s support for Trump than they can grapple with the more obscure principles of quantum physics.
A black woman working for and supporting the clearly “racist and bigoted” Trump for president? It’s the media’s Schrödinger Cat. Call it the “Omarosa Paradox.”
But this continued effort to portray Trump as a racist is as futile as trying to prove Hillary to be honest and trustworthy. Which might explain why Holt asked no questions—not one—about the biggest controversy of the entire presidential campaign: Hillary’s emails.
With race relations at an all time low, with riots in the streets, with Obama talking down to inner city blacks—from the golf course—the media is doing all it can to shore up the foregone conclusion that Trump must be racist.
The media can’t let go of the birther argument and continues to try to use it as evidence that Trump is racist.
But here’s the real story: the media’s speculation itself is racist.
Did Lester Holt ask Donald Trump birther questions about Canadian-born Ted Cruz? No.
Is it because Cruz is white that last night’s debate moderator Holt (or the media) didn’t mention Trump’s speculation about Cruz being eligible for the presidency? If the question is about eligibility, then why not bring up Trump’s speculation about Cruz?
It doesn’t fit the media narrative, therefore it is a non-story. Instead, the media continues its attacks against Trump as a racist bigot because he dared to pick up on speculation that was started by the Clinton campaign.
This wasn’t the first time MSNBC tried in vain to pull the race card in an attempt to get Omarosa to bash Trump. And who could forget when CNN’s Don Lemon cut Omorosa’s mic before she could answer the first question?
