Trump’s Ohio Campaign Chair Says, ‘No Racism Until Obama’

‘We never had problems like this’’

Ohio is one of the nation’s most pivotal swing states in 2016 and whoever wins it stands a much stronger chance of capturing the White House. Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton have been neck and neck in the state, trading leads in a number of polls. So, the Trump team can’t be happy about this incredibly embarrassing and racist interview that one of his state county campaign chair gave to The Guardian.


In the interview, Mahoning County Chair Kathy Miller tells a visibly shocked reporter, “I don’t think there was any racism until Obama got elected. We never had problems like this.”

The look on the reporter’s face is priceless, as he twice seems unable to hide his shock and disbelief at what Miller is saying.

Her uninterrupted statement on racism and Obama reads as follows:

“Now, with the people with the guns and shooting up neighborhoods, and not being responsible citizens, that’s a big change. And I think that’s the philosophy that Obama has perpetuated on America. And if you’re black and you haven’t been successful in the last 50 years, it’s your own fault. I think that, when we look at the last 50 years, where are we? And why? We have three generations of all still having unwed babies, kids that don’t go through high school, I mean when do they take responsibility for how they live? I think it’s due time and I think it’s good that Mr. Trump is pointing that out.”

Miller went on to criticize Black Lives Matter and to basically ignore the significance of the entire civil rights movement. When told by the reporter that some might interpret her comments as offensive or even racist, Miller was unmoved, saying, “I don’t care. It’s the truth.”

However, for all of it’s own pratfalls with the issue of race, it does appear the Trump campaign cared about Miller’s shocking statement. She was fired from her post shortly after the interview was published.

Last Friday, GOOD reported on an infuriating incident that went down at a Massachusetts Target.

A Target manager who's come to be known as "Target Tori," was harassed by Twitter troll David Leavitt for not selling him an $89 Oral-B Pro 5000 toothbrush for a penny.

He describes himself as a "multimedia journalist who has worked for CBS, AXS, Yahoo, and others."

Anyone who has ever worked in retail knows that the worst thing about the job, right after the pay, are the unreasonable cheapskates who "want to talk to your manager" to get some money off an item.

They think that throwing a tantrum will save them a few bucks and don't care if they completely embarrass themselves in the process. Sometimes that involves belittling the poor employee who's just trying to get through their day with an ounce of dignity.

Twitter is rallying around a gal named Tori who works at a Target in Massachusetts after she was tweet-shamed by irate chapekate, journalist, and Twitter troll, David Leavitt.

In a typical work day, people who smoke take more breaks than those who do not. Every few hours they pop outside to have a smoke and usually take a coworker with them.

Don Bryden, Managing director at KCJ Training and Employment Solutions in Swindon, England, thinks that nonsmokers and smokers should be treated equally, so he's giving those who refrain from smoking four extra days to compensate.

Funny enough, Bryden is a smoker himself.
