This is the kind of bold tell it like it is frankness that lets voters know he is telling the truth when he promises to steal all their money and then sexually assault their most comely daughters:

Naturally, according to the various Republican lawmakers on the call when he delivered this apercu, it’s being taken totally out of context, since he really meant to say that Milwaukee has horrible voter fraud, or horrible crime, or lots of black people, not that it was completely horrible in every possible way.

Why would Trump criticize the city, especially since Wisconsin is a swing state that he narrowly lost in the 2020 election? The answer may very well be racism. Milwaukee is very often criticized by the rural and suburban politicians in the rest of the state, who use racist dog whistles, yell “socialism,” or rely on more overt bigotry. Myths of rampant crime continue to plague the city, even as its crime rate has dropped. Meanwhile, its sizable Black population, which has historically tipped the state blue, has slightly tempered its support for Democrats. In 2020, Trump’s allies responded to his election loss by trying to write off Milwaukee’s votes and overturn the state’s election results.

There’s an internet meme about how somebody circulates a cute video of a duck drinking a milkshake, and fifteen minutes later the whole internet decides the duck is racist. In Trump’s case, the answer actually always is racism. Or misogyny. Or more often both.
