Let me remind you, @realDonaldTrump, of your horrific record of #racism. You wanted to reinstate the #DeathPenalty for the #CentralParkFive. In 2016, you claimed they were still guilty, despite exonerating DNA evidence.
1. 1973: Trump refused to rent to black tenants; lied to blacks about vacancies
2. Black workers ordered off the floor when he visited Trump's Castle
3. 1988: Said countries "like Japan" were hurting the economic dignity of the US. Wonder who the hell wrote THAT for him?
4. 1969: After the Central Park 5 were accused of raping a NYC jogger he took out ad in local papers: "BRING BACK THE DEATH PENALTY. BRING BACK OUR POLICE!" After the convictions were overturned, NYC paid a $41M settlement.
1991: In a book by the former president of Trump Plaza Hotel & Casino in Atlantic City quoted #Drumpf saying of a black accountant: "Black guys counting my money! I hate it. The only kind of people I want counting my money are short guys that wear yarmulkes every day."
1992: Trump Plaza Hotel & Casino took black & women workers off tables to accommodate a racist/bigot gambler. The result? A $200K fine.
2000: When the St. Regis Mohawk tribe proposed a casino, #Drumpf ran ads suggestion the tribe were criminals.
2004: During the 3nd season of The Apprentice, Trump fired Kevin Allen, a black contestant, for being overeducated.
2005: #Drumpf publicly proposed what amounted to "The Apprentice: White People vs. Black People."
2010: He opposed the Ground Zero mosque and wanted to buy out one of the investors. On the Letterman show he implied Muslims were "blowing us up."
2011: #Drumpf was a main proponent of #birtherism, accusing Barack Obama of not having been born in the US. He went so far as to send investigators to Hawaii to dig up the birth certificate. Reportedly he still pushes this bullshit in private to this day.
2011: #Drumpf also said Obama wasn't a good enough student to have gotten into Harvard or Columbia Law and demanded he release his transcripts. THIS from a fool who cannot speak a decent English sentence - and barely read on written for him
This is just the opening. The complete list can be found here.

In an email from @ChrisMurphyCT
Read it. All of it,
“The first thing that seemed wrong was how fast the Republican floor staffer was moving toward Senator Chuck Grassley.
She abruptly rustled him from his seat in the front row of the chamber and motioned that he quickly ascend to the dais, to relieve Vice President Mike Pence in the chair.
This transition from Pence to Grassley as presiding officer was expected, so maybe few people noticed anything out of the ordinary. But to me, the pace at which Pence was exiting the chamber seemed alarming.

There was a man who worked for the Post Office whose job was to process all the mail that had illegible addresses.
One day, a letter came addressed in a shaky handwriting to God with no address.

He thought he should open it to see what it was about.
The letter read: “Dear God, I am an 83-year-old widow, living on a very small pension. Yesterday someone stole my purse. It had $100 in it, which was all the money I had until my next pension check. Next Sunday is Christmas, and I had invited two of my friends over for dinner.”
Without that money, I have nothing to buy food with. I have no family to turn to, and you are my only hope. Can you please help me? Sincerely, Edna”

The postal worker was touched.

He showed the letter to all the other workers.

Two young guys were picked up by the cops for smoking marijuana and appeared in court.
The judge said, "You seem like nice young men, I'd like to give you a second chance. I want you to go out this weekend and try to show others the evils of drug use. I'll see you back in court Monday."
On Monday, the judge said to the first one, "How did you do over the weekend?"

“Well, your honor, I persuaded 17 people to give up drugs."

“17 people? That's wonderful. What did you tell them? asked the judge.

Two Canadians died and ended up in hell. Satan decided to pay them a visit, so he walked into their room and saw them talking and laughing. Confused, he asked them why they were so happy.
One of them said, “We were sick of the cold where we're from, and this place is nice and toasty."

Satan, annoyed, stormed away to Hell's boiler room, where he turned up the temperature.
He went back to the Canadians' room, along the way being begged to put the heating back down. He entered the room to see the Canadians having a barbecue. Furious, he asked them what they're doing.

A man walked out to the street and caught a taxi just going by:
He got into the taxi and the cabbie said. "Perfect timing. You're just like Brian!"
Passenger: "Who?"
Cabbie: "Brian Sullivan. He's a guy who did everything right all the time. Like my coming along when you needed a cab, things happen like that to Brian Sullivan, every single time!"

Passenger: "There are always a few clouds over everybody.”
Cabbie: "Not Brian Sullivan. He was a terrific athlete. He could have won the Grand Slam at tennis. He could golf with the pros. He sang like an opera baritone and danced like a Broadway star and you should have heard him play the piano. He was an amazing guy.”

A suspected Covid-19 male patient was lying in bed in the hospital, wearing an oxygen mask over his mouth and nose. A young student female nurse came to give him a partial sponge bath.
"Nurse,"' he mumbled from behind the mask, "are my testicles black?"

Embarrassed, the young nurse replied, "I don't know, Sir. I'm only here to wash your upper body and feet."
He struggled to ask again, "Nurse, please check for me. Are my testicles black?"

Concerned that he might elevate his blood pressure and heart rate from worrying about his testicles, she overcame her embarrassment and pulled back the covers.
