Trump Flashes The White Power Sign In Speech When He Mentions AOC

Just a coincidence, I'm sure.

Trump this morning during his speech at Turning Point USA's Teen Student Action Summit, a far-right group. Apparently signalling to his Aryan brothers that it's open season on the young congresswoman, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Or maybe it's just nothing at all. I don't know. I'm not a White Supremacist with a grudge against brown people and ethnic minorities. You be the judge.

Oh look, just the president taking cues from 4chan trolls running cover for white supremacists

“Someone who uses the symbol cannot be assumed to be using the symbol in either a trolling or, especially, white supremacist context ***unless other contextual evidence exists to support the contention***”

Well then!

But whatever the case, this isn’t worth the distraction. Even if it was deliberate, he knows he has plausible deniability and he’ll happily take the opportunity to play the victim.

Here it is, in context, at around the one-minute mark, just after he called Rep. Rashida Tlaib 'a crazed lunatic'.
