"Trump attacks NASCAR and Bubba Wallace over Confederate flag banning, noose controversy"

I for one am happy that with the coronavirus, the race problems, and the economy, our fearless leader has chosen to concentrate on this nation's real problems.

What an absolutely weak president. Have to agree with some of the other comments here. Guy needs to be voted out of office. Being publicity stunt, reality show politics is tearing this country apart when we need real solid and stable governance. I'm not a Democrat and might have to hold my nose if I decide to vote for Biden. But this is just too much, an obvious publicity stunt when we're dealing with so much more important stuff is the best sign that he thinks this is a game.

Damn that must hurt you rapey golden hair that little kids play with joe supporters!

Don’t worry about bubba, he got a talking too after he pissed off every white person in the country by calling them racist. Then his sponsors said hey son, were writing your paychecks and if the sponsors pull out then the only ride you’ll be driving is the family station wagon.

I’m betting his white daddy and white girlfriend had something to say as well.

His apology if that’s what you want to call it was pathetic by the way, just like his driving skills but hey, they needed some diversity in nascar and he was the best they could find.

Blacks need jobs badly. That's the way out of a terrible life and neighborhood. Trump is the one president that brought black unemployment to all-time lows. Obama and Bush couldn't figure out how to get the economy going again. It took a New York businessman with confidence to do it. Biden is just going to tax Americans so much that take-home pay will be cut in half so the Dems can fulfill their radical socialist wet dreams.

Blacks need to apply for jobs first which requires atleast a 7th grade education
