You know there is absolutely no racism when Al Sharpton is freaking out about who is allowed to be in the White House.
Donald Trump’s daughter Ivanka apparently has an office in the West Wing and will act as a private citizen and consultant to the President. This role is legal, ethical, and doesn’t cost us a thing because Ivanka is not drawing a salary.
For some reason, race-hustling’ Sharpton is absolutely outraged at this set up.
During his weekly rant, Sharpton took issue with both Ivanka’s West Wing office and the fact that she has been given security clearance.
“Giving a office on the West Wing of Ivanka Trump, somebody explain to me how you can give security clearance, access to classified material, and a office to somebody that don’t have a title or job?” Sharpton said.
The office is in the West Wing, not on it. It’s not a roof-top patio, it’s an office. As for the security clearance, there are different levels of this. It’s unlikely that Ivanka is allowed to see the most sensitive information, but she does need a certain level of clearance in order to consult with the president.
I find it hilarious that Sharpton’s biggest problem is that Ivanka doesn’t have a job. Sharpton is the richest least employed person this country has ever known.
“They say now she ain’t got no title. She ain’t got no role. We ain’t payin’ her no money. But she can see everything classified,” Sharpton continued.
Well, no, that ain’t what they say. Ivanka Trump, acting in the capacity of a private citizen, is a consultant to the President. That’s a role and a title. What she doesn’t have is a hefty price tag for this, which is probably what Sharpton finds so confusing. He doesn’t do anything without a big payday.
As ridiculous as this manufactured outrage is, at his heart, Sharpton is a race hustler and managed to insert some racism into this:
“If President Barack Obama had given his daughters or his mother-in-law an office and some access to classified documents and cleared security status, they would have run him and everybody else out the White House,” Sharpton said.
You see, Obama is black so if he did something there would have been severe repercussions while Trump who is white gets away with it. It’s completely bullshit, but only the tip of the turd of Sharpton’s insanity. This is just more proof that Sharpton doesn’t understand how things work, like paying taxes or reading off of a teleprompter.
“They” or whoever Sharpton thinks “they” are would not have run Obama out of office because obtaining security clearance for relatives who act as consultants isn’t an impeachable offense. Not only does it fall well short of treason it is legal and not at all controversial.
Another thing Sharpton can’t comprehend is that Obama’s daughters were minors for his entire presidency, while Ivanka Trump is a grown woman. This is not an equal comparison.
I think what’s really going on is jealously. Under the last administration Sharpton was Obama’s “go-to guy” on race relations and had unimpeded access to the White House. Under Trump, Sharpton is not welcome at the White House and figures if he can’t be there that no one should be allowed. And because he’s black, it must be racism that’s keeping him out of Trump’s inner circle.
