Ivana Says Trump Is Not Racist, Just Confused Because Lots of People Are Telling Him What to Say

Source: Newsweek

Donald Trump’s ex-wife Ivana has suggested the president is not racist but says “silly” things and gets confused because he has “so many people telling him… what to say.”

The mother of Trump’s three eldest children made the comments in an interview with U.K. TV show Good Morning Britain on Monday, during which she defended her former husband from the claims of racism leveled against him after he referred to several countries as “shitholes.”

Responding to questions from host Piers Morgan about whether she considered Trump to be racist, Ivana said: “I don’t think Donald is racist at all. You know, sometimes he says these things, you know, which are silly, or he doesn’t really mean them or something like that.”

1. Let's see, which is better to have?

A leader of the free world who is a racist?

A leader of the free world who gets confused when people talk to him?

How about both!

8. Is Ivana one of those friends that Trump calls in the evenings after work?

Sounds like he is using her as a confidante.

9. Then that racist should be fired!

There's no reason for a racist to be employed by the government or engaged with the president, and the president should have the fortitude to make sound judgements.

10. Shut up, Ivana

No one really cares what you think.

And Piers Morgan is a third-rate television personality masquerading as a journalist. Scrape the bottom of that barrel, Piers.

11. That best-case scenario still renders him unfit to be president of anything.

13. Pretty sure she's likely racist as well, and doesn't believe she is, so naturally he can't be

Birds of a feather...

15. I thought part of the whole idea with Trump was supposed to be

that no one could tell him what to say.

17. When Trump sends his family to speak for him, he doesn't send us his best

He sends the murderers and rapists. Sure some of the Trump family are good people.
