CNN's Jake Tapper reacts to President Trump taking offense to a question about nationalism and white nationalism at his post-midterm election press conference on Wednesday. PBS White House correspondent Yamiche Alcindor, the reporter who asked the question, is a black woman. Tapper said it "boggles the mind" that Trump could believe that a black woman could be racist.
JAKE TAPPER, CNN HOST: "...The word ('nationalist') has baggage. A lot of people have not used the word...
If you want to make the argument, make the argument.
The idea that any reporter asking that question, in particular an African-American woman is asking a racist question just boggles the mind. I mean, it is a perfectly legitimate question
But no one should be surprised because this is how the president does that. You challenge him, he attacks you harder and that's what this press conference was all about. And I feel threatened, therefore I'm going to threaten everybody here.

The President chided the reporter for asking a racist question.
He did not call her a racist.
To say a black woman cannot be racist is racist in itself. She could have other races obviousky.
Libs truly believe that only whites can be racist. Anything else simply doesn’t compute.
Tapper outed himself as a racist.
Funny. I always wondered why according to the last census, whites in LA are the MINORITY yet they live in white secluded neighborhoods and dont live in black areas.
Boggles my mind that when Trump says he is a Nationalist as opposed to a Globalist & repeatedly explains he loves America and puts America First, that the Fake News Media adds the word “white” to Nationalist & calls him a racist.
Maybe Tapper & his cronies are too stupid to comprehend.
Jake, in the late 1970s, I walked on the western slope of Signal Hill CA, under oil donkeys, a 4 year old little Black kid snarled at me, “Honkey”!
In reality, this is the cause of our highly refine hypocrisy about race.
“In particular, we are able to demonstrate that family planning services in the United States were provided more frequently whenever there were black Americans in the population. In other words, there is a strong inferential case to be made that reactions to the racial composition of the population have influenced decisions to provide family planning services. This fact [, that contraception dispensaries tend to be located in predominantly minority areas, not in poor white ones,] gives apparent substance to charges that such programs are designed not simply to assist the poor, but to control the growth of the black population. “

Trust the TV talkers, not your lying eyes.
Well then get your mind unboggled. There are black racists. Get over it.
That’s hilarious since everyone on the left accuses Candace Owens of being “Alt Right” and a “White Nationalist” gee Jake from State Farm, if blacks can’t be racist why does your side accuse any black person on the right of being a racist
Do these people even listen to themselves?! “Racist: a person who shows or feels discrimination or prejudice against people of other races, or who believes that a particular race is superior to another.” So, believing that a person of color cannot be racist is a racist comment by definition.
Jake Tapper has a boggled mind. He admits it.
Is he kidding, a lot of black people are racist. I guess Farakham isn’t?
Most racist guy I’ve ever met is black. Every human he meets he calls the N word.
“The word (’nationalist’) has baggage”
So does the word journalist and there doesn’t appear any of the Lame Street Media new hawks that understand that.
Take-a-Krapper has a boggled mind.
You could tell Trump was worn out from all his campaigning, so he had no patience for the usual manipulative questions that are really thinly veiled slurs against him. He should have just thrown up his hands and said you people are hopeless, and I don’t have the patience for this today, adios.
“racist” is a magical word.
It has more meanings than the word “is” in the Clinton dictionary.
It has more meanings than the translations for “snow” in an eskimo dictionary.
It can mean WHATEVER you want (as long as you aren’t white or conservative. and if you are both, then you are racist by definition unless you aren’t).
