From "shithole countries" to racism-free in four days. 

A lot can happen in four days. You could eat Popeyes and get food poisoning or you could fall in and out of love with the person you took home from the club. Or, in Donald Trump's world, you could go from describing predominantly African and Hispanic countries "shithole countries" and suddenly proclaim to reporters that you're the "least racist person you have ever interviewed."

That's right. Our Racist in Chief has seemingly escaped from the Upside Down and emerged as the patron saint of racial equality. Not a racist bone in that body! The president uttered this remark in between rounds of golf as he arrived for dinner at his Florida golf club with House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy. "No, no. I am not a racist," he proclaimed.

As a reminder, Democratic Senator Dick Durbin and Republican Senator Lindsey Graham both confirmed last week that the Washington Post's report that Trump used the term "shithole" to describe African countries in a meeting was correct. Meanwhile, two Republican Senators, Tom Cotton and David Perdue, went from not being able to recall what he said to firmly denying it.

As news pundits debate over the specifics of just how racist Donald Trump is, let's all remember that, one, Donald Trump is a racist and, two, debating the specifics only normalizes his behavior. Call a spade a spade and move on.
