President Trump came under fire for a speech he made to police officer. He joked with the officers that they are sometimes ‘too nice’. The media twisted this into suggesting that President Trump was advocating police brutality. However, race-baiter Al Sharpton took it a step further by criticizing the President for using the term ‘paddy wagon.’
“When you see these thugs being thrown into the back of a paddywagon, you just see them thrown in, rough. I said please don’t be too nice. Like when you guys put somebody into a car and you’re protecting their head, you know, the way you put your hand, like don’t hit their head, and they’ve just killed somebody, don’t hit their head, I said you can take the hand away, OK?” said President Trump to a group of police officers, who responded to him with laughter.
All Sharpton tweeted a photo that said “SATURDAY: REV. AL SHARPTON TO BLAST PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP’S REPREHENSIBLE ENCOURAGEMENT OF POLICE VIOLENCE & RACIST “PADDY WAGON” SLUR. Reverend Al Sharpton and National Action Network will also welcome His Holiness the Gyalwang Drukpa to NAN’s Saturday Action Rally to promote interfaith dialogue as the key to combatting global injustice.”
“I will respond to Trump praising police violence to an audience of laughing cops at a speech Friday,” tweeted Sharpton.
What exactly makes the Irish phrase ‘Paddy Wagon’ so racist? See if you can find an Irish person who is offended by it. See his tweet below.
