Here you will see three idiots on the sofa stare intently into a void. Out of the void comes the voice of a fourth idiot. “When it comes to racism and racists,” the fourth idiot muses (he uses “racists” as if it were a subject unencompassed by “racism” in order to seem more intelligent), “I am the least racist person there is. And I think most people that know me would tell you that. I am the least racist.” The idiots on the sofa continue to stare. Finally, one of them senses that he hasn’t made a movement in a while. He remedies this by nodding and smacking his lips. He has assured the universe for a few more moments, at least, that he exists.

“In fact,” Trump added, “Randal Pinkett won on The Apprentice a little while ago, a couple years ago, and Randal’s been outstanding in every way. So I am the least racist person. But [Van Jones] is a guy trying to get some publicity for himself by attacking Donald Trump.”

Pinkett won the show in 2005, and was the first African-American contestant to win.

Bob Barker gave away brand-new cars and tens of thousands of dollars to black people every day for decades on his game show. If Trump is the “least racist” person on Earth, what does that make Barker? Dead?

Donald Trump is less racist than you. He is less racist than Nelson Mandela. He is less racist than newborn babies, those racist fucks. [TPM]

    Wonder how well old Randal Pinket still likes his job in the copy room.

    • CapeClod

      You mean his job cleaning the copy room?

  • Weenus299

    Some of his best friends have been chosen as apprentices.

    • AutomaticPilot

      Some of my best friends are Republican douches.

  • baconzgood

    I'm not racist either. This morning a black man was getting on the bus in front of me and I didn't even push him down.

    • That's why ou have a great relationship with The Blacks. Have you always had a great relationship with The Blacks?

      • baconzgood

        I've always had a great relationship with black people….It's the chinks I gotta problem with.

    • Arken

      But you made sure he sat in the back at least, right?

  • CapeClod

    "Van Jones is a guy trying to get some publicity for himself by attacking Donald Trump.”

    And Donald thinks its a disgrace that someone should be that publicity hungry.

    • BerkeleyBear

      Given the amount of time spent by Beck on Van Jones, I think the last thing Mr. Jones needs is publicity.

  • Weenus299

    "Now Omarosa, on the other hand, she was just uppity."

  • SudsMcKenzie

    I'm very proud of him.

    • BerkeleyBear

      Not as proud as he is of him.

  • nappyduggs

    "And I think most people that know me would tell you that. I am the least racist."

    As they say, less is more. Methinks the merkin doth protest too much.

  • lefty74

    I kinka always thought either you are a racist or you aren't a racist.
    Like pregnancy. One cannot be the least pregnant person on the planet.

    • Trumpettte may be as fair-minded as we'd all like to be. But when he talks about race, he sounds defensive.

      And Fox is like an all-white country club. Where the member's kids get into Yale as legacy admission.

    • David_in_NYC

      You only say that because you never asked the Donald. He is both the least racist AND the least pregnant person on the planet.

    He's keeping both my shoes and cars well shined.

    And then last night he fired all three of the black women on Celebrity Apprentice.

    • GunToting[Redacted]

      My step-sister-in-law (Jesus, these integrated families are complicated) was runner-up on CelebApp last year. She now states that one of her proudest moments was NOT being selected to win by that asshole.

  • widestanceroman

    Meaning he is no better at racism than he is at business.

  • neiltheblaze

    Aw, c-mon Donald – don't be so hard on yourself You're as racist as anyone in the field! You just have to practice more.

  • x111e7thst

    Donald Trump has the least racist hair in history.

      Polyesters and rayons get along with people of all ethnicities.

      • BaldarTFlagass

        I that's true, because Benetton ads.

  • mavenmaven

    yes, there are many people who are racist against many different kinds of people, I at least am not racist against Eastern European immigrants with big racks.

    • Limeylizzie

      How about Northern European immigrants with big racks?

  • rhubarbpie2

    Luckily for Trump and his interviewers this wasn't a "least brain-dead" contest.

    • CapeClod

      And that the only people watching "Fox and Friends" are old and white.

  • Goonemeritus

    He is not even the least racist Republican Fake candidate this year.

  • CapeClod

    I would love to see him and Colbert have a debate about which of them is the least racist person.

    "Hired Black Guy Six Years Ago On TV"
    He polishes my bald spot before I get my combover.

    Sooooo Donald Trump has a deep-seated hatred for white people or the white culture? Run with Glenn. Run with it.

  • BZ1

    The Donald isn't positing: "I have a black friend argument?"

    • Lascauxcaveman

      A black employee, anyway.

      • GregComlish

        Not "a black employee" but "The Most Black" employee.

  • Schmannnity

    Since the birther stunt cratered, I guess he is going to have to re-investigate Jeremiah Wright–in a totally non-racist way, of course.

  • nounverb911

    I've never watched his show, is it still on?

  • OkieDokieDog

    I think that rich old white robber baron Gop and Teabagger guys are the most racy-ist of the racists, and I'm not racist against white guys, so I trump the Trump.

  • Sue4466

    New game! Trump says that "most people that know me would tell you" something like it's like a separate validation of his own opinion. E.g., "I think most people that know me would tell you I am a very smart guy, the smartest, actually."

    Now for the home version: "I think most people that know me would tell you I have a squirrel living on my head."

    • x111e7thst

      Looks more like a dead muskrat to me.

    Donald Trump is the ideal human being in every way and some that aren't.

  • Mumbletypeg

    OK fine Donald you're not a racist. (You just happen to be very popular with them.)

  • SorosBot

    Trump may be telling the truth; he might not be a racist, but may just keep saying racist things to pander to the racist GOP base. Which is just as bad.

  • horsedreamer_1

    The Donald-Omarosa relationship is as affectionate as the Oprah-Gayle relationship. FACT.

  • BaldarTFlagass

    They could make it a weekly reality show!

  • OC_Surrrrrrf_Serf

    Bob Barker gave away…

    No fair!! Barker, too, was coloured (partly red).

  • widestanceroman

    Perhaps his mouth could be stretched over a Japanese reactor core and concrete poured into his anus. At last, he might contribute something to this world.

  • WriteyWriterton

    Barry said/implied it best: Trump is a carny barker. His natural habitat is a carnival midway sinking in a mud-soaked Great Plains cornfield, which blue-haired farm-widows cruise past in K-cars, pressing their lips in disgust.

  • 4tehlulz_lite

    On the Birthernacht episode of Apprentice, he will say that he doesn't mad when someone calls him a nigger, so neither should blacks.

  • RadioGroundZero

    Hey, at least it is a new variant on a theme. "I'm not a racist but,…" has now become "I'm the least racist person in the world, but…."

  • Trump can't be racist… the Blacks LOVE him.

    • WriteyWriterton

      Also the Jews, too. Also.

    I'll show him and cast him in a Jodie Foster movie with an animal puppet. Racist little fucker will never see the light of day again.

    Yes, Donald. Yes.

    I love how he pats himself on the back, while referring to himself in the third person.

    • tessiee

      Bob Dole also refers to Bob Dole in the third person.

    And with that Don Just lost Arizona in primaries.

    Four very white people talking about racism, one of them nods in a way that says "I am pretending to recall what you are talking about, but no one really remembers reality shows a year after they air."

    Watching 60 Minutes last night, it would have been easy to picture Trump being the one interviewed by Steve Croft. Except if it was Trump, he would have been more decisive and more American and everything.

    • WriteyWriterton

      The imaginable contrast is, well, unimaginable.

  • pinkocommi

    You know how some of Trump's best friends are ugly women, but he wouldn't want to marry them? . . . Same policy for black people.

  • Lascauxcaveman

    Funny true story about how racist I am: I met a very black local semi-homeless guy who said he just moved here, looking for work. I had some projects lined up, so I hired him for two days of casual labor at my hotel, and he had such a mush-mouth deep Southside accent that when I asked him where he was from, and he said "Chicago" I thought he said "The Congo."

    So I replied, "Gee, you've got pretty good English for a guy fresh off the boat from Africa."

    We both had a good laugh about it after I explained to him that I was really hard of hearing. "Yeah, uhm, I noticed."

  • DaRooster

    Sorry folks… "Winning" and becoming Trumps Apprentice… that ain't winning.

    I don't know who those three people are, but when I see them I think that is what Sarah Palin saw when she started halucinating about Death Panels.

  • Lascauxcaveman

    In my defense, I'm reallllly hard of hearing.

    And the dude just looked African to me. Compact, muscular, extremely dark skin, clothes all wrong-looking for an American black male. So anyway, I know I'm kinda racist, making assumptions based on how the guy looked.

    • tessiee

      "And the dude just looked African to me. … So anyway, I know I'm kinda racist, making assumptions based on how the guy looked."

      Or, if not actually racist, not 100% clear on the distinction between African-American, i.e., black guy who was born here, and African-American, i.e., born in Africa and moved to America.

      It suddenly occurs to me that there are a lot of people unable to make that distinction, but only where Pres. Obama is concerned, so I should say that I'm not calling you a birther.

    Donald says "it's okay [to attack him for publicity] because a lot of people do that". With logic like that no wonder he is becoming king of Teabaggerishness.

    He is less racist than your white younger brother who's obsessed with hip-hop.

    He is equally as racist as a guy in a vegetative coma who involuntarily makes sound sometimes. He may well be that guy.

  • Everhope

    I think it would be such fun if The Donald was to be elected POTUS. Think of all the gags. The reality show! Instead of intoning “You’re fired,” he would intone, “Nuke those ungrateful fuckers!”

  • PooPooMcgee

    What kind of shit piece is this? Most people know that Trump over exaggerates. It takes a borderline mentally challenged person to take a comment like that 100% literally. He was making a point. Here’s an example for your small brain: “My mom makes the best meatballs ever.” If Trump said that, you and your brain dead style of writing, which panders to individuals with pathetically low intelligence, would say something along the lines of “So Trump’s mother makes better meatballs than Gordon Ramsay? Better meatballs than award winning italian chef Gusto Fuckanatti?” Please, think about a new career that does not include writing and using your (lack of) brain. Articles like this are living examples of why I hate the media.

    • Xavierzubercock

      Id assume that your mom’s meatballs are probably ok & she makes them just the way you like. So I would accept that for you they are the best meatballs ever in the history of the universe..
      On the other hand Trump is a racist.
