The Late Show Remixes Donald Trump’s Most Racist Hits in “NOW That’s What I Call Racist”
As news outlets fuss over whether or not Omarosa really has a tape of Donald Trump saying the n-word, it’s important for us to remember that there is already abundant evidence that Trump is racist: like, an endless number of incidents. None of this is new information! If him saying the n-word is a turning point for you, then you either haven’t been paying attention or your priorities are extremely out of order.
Two things: Omarosa’s supposed 200+ tapes that she’s constantly smugly teasing is the worst 13 Reasons Why spin-off ever and and we all just kind of know, in our hearts, that he totally says it right? Like, to reiterate, it doesn’t add much to our characterization to our understanding of Donald Trump as a hateful bigot, but even without the White House’s prevaricating and evasiveness you know he’s comfortable saying the word.
Maybe it’ll get through to people if his blatant, unapologetic racism set to music? With “NOW That’s What I Call Racist”, The Late Show with Stephen Colbert shares Donald Trump’s most “classic, bigoted hits” which includes “all his hottest derogatory tracks.” “It’ll have you grabbing your torch and marching your booty”, it declares, with footage from the Charlottesville Unite the Right rally last year set to a montage with some B-roll DJ-ing and dancing. The segment reminds viewers of all the awful, horrendous things the President has said about Mexicans, the Central Park Five, Obama, and more—some of it is even auto-tuned for your musical delight!
Omarosa was a hot topic on The Late Show, which Colbert spoke about during his monologue and with the hosts of Pod Save America (Vietor calls it “reality-show Watergate”, which feels incredibly appropriate).
