What is it with these guys who use racism to defend Trump? Seriously, what is wrong with these people??
Legal scholar Alan Dershowitz has become quite the Trump supporter. And now he’s accusing Bob Mueller of stacking the deck against Trump by assembling a grand jury in D.C. His reason? There are too many black people in D.C.
On Friday, Dershowitz talked with Rita Cosby on WABC radio about the news that Mueller had impaneled a grand jury and started to issue subpoenas in the Trump/Russia investigation. He said that Mueller was being unfair to Trump by using the D.C. jury pool because the area has a large demographic of racial minorities and Democrats.
“It gives the prosecutor a tremendous tactical advantage,” Dershowitz said. “The District of Columbia, which is always solidly Democratic and has an ethnic and racial composition that might be very unfavorable to the Trump Administration.”
When Cosby asked if he thought this move by Mueller stacks the deck against Trump, Dershowitz answered, “Yes. Yes I do.”
Then he added,
“I think it’s a tactical move designed to send a message that if the prosecutor decides to prosecute, he will have a real advantage with the jury pool where the case will be held.”
Apparently Dershowitz, along with many Trump supporters, don’t believe that racial minorities are capable of fairly assessing evidence. I’m not sure if they even realize how insulting and racist those comments are. But in this new Trump world, I guess this is just par for the course.
