Trump MAGA Rally

Trump’s 71 Million are Far More Than a Bunch of Angry White Guys

By Commentaries/Opinions

By Earl Ofari Hutchinson — Ever since Trump first took the Oval Office this has been virtually written in political stone. The prototype Trump backer is a poorly educated, KKK or white nationalist loving, slob of a blue collar white male worker or farmer in the backwoods of the Deep South or Midwest who alternately fears and loathes Blacks, Hispanics, gays, liberals of all stripes, former President Obama, and big…

Rough Road Ahead for President Biden

By Commentaries/Opinions

By Earl Ofari Hutchinson — Many harbor this delightful fantasy. One of President Biden’s first acts is to direct his Justice Department to investigate former President Trump for the array of dubious, borderline illicit business dealings and scams he engaged in while in the White House. Even if Biden ever entertained such a thought it’s an impossibility for two reasons. No incoming President has ever authorized an investigation of an…

Trump’s flaws alone won’t bring skeptical Black voters out to vote for Biden

By Commentaries/Opinions

In the aftermath of the shooting of Jacob Blake by police, Joe Biden should have gotten to Kenosha, Wis., much faster. (Associated Press) By Earl Ofari Hutchinson, LA Times — We’ve all heard the analysis: If only Black voters had turned out in the same numbers to vote for Hillary Clinton that they did for Barack Obama, we wouldn’t have Donald Trump today. The razor-thin margins for Trump in Wisconsin, Michigan and…

Eight Very Specific Things Senate Democrats Can Do to Muck up Trump’s SCOTUS Bum Rush

By Commentaries/Opinions

By Earl Ofari Hutchinson — The universal consensus on Trump and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s speed rush to fill Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s seat is that Senate Democrats can do nothing to stop it. This is dead wrong. The operative word here to muck up Trump and McConnell’s confirmation scheme is time, time, and more time. Time, they don’t have much of.

Good Reason Trump Won’t Drink Woodward’s Racial Kool Aid

By Commentaries/Opinions

By Earl Ofari Hutchinson — Robert Woodward certainly couldn’t have been shocked at Trump’s answer to his very loaded question. The question was whether he could understand any of the racial pain that African Americans feel. Trump stood the question on its head and accused Woodward of “drinking the Kool Aid.” Translated: Why should he or any other white guy like him feel any guilt, let alone empathy, at the…

The Law and Order Scam Worked for Nixon, Trump Banks it Will Work for Him Too

By Commentaries/Opinions

By Earl Ofari Hutchinson — It started a week or so before the Republican National Convention opened when several major police unions rousingly backed Trump’s reelection bid. The union’s fervor for Trump dominated the convention with loud, long, and emotional reminders from cop groups and other law and order proponents that the thin Blue Line is under attack as never before. The inflamed warning was that America’s police are the…

Blake Notwithstanding, It’s Still Nearly Impossible to Prosecute Cops

By Commentaries/Opinions

By Earl Ofari Hutchinson — One day after Jacob Blake was shot multiple times in the back by a Kenosha, Wisconsin cop, there was a terse one liner from the Wisconsin Department of Justice. It noted that its Division of Criminal Investigation would issue a report within 30 days on whether to recommend the filing of criminal charges against the officer who shot Blake. 30 days, recommend, and a one…

Despite Everything Biden Still Can’t Pry Some Blacks Loose from Trump

By Commentaries/Opinions

By Earl Ofari Hutchinson — Since George Floyd was slain there have been ten national live voter polls taken. The polls predictably show that Biden has a whopping lead over Trump among Black voters. But they also show that a lot of Blacks still aren’t buying Biden. They’re buying Trump. There are just enough of them to raise the question why and to raise the worry that they could cause…
