there’s always the one… black senator tim scott front and center for trump tax bill photo op
December 22, 2017
A Black republican is one thing. A Black Trump supporter is another. A Black republican who cannot hold back his glee as Trump happily screws over the majority of Americans, and particular other people of color, is something else entirely.
That’s Tim Scott, senator from South Carolina. Scott, who has supposedly been Donald Trump’s “go-to” on issues of race (much good that has done) stood in the first row behind the president acting as what some are calling “a manipulated prop.”
Scott has never been particularly interested in pushing for policies that help the marginalized, and the latest tax bill is no better. The bill is no less than a massive giveaway to the rich and foreign investors, will add trillions to the national debt, and sets up for later cuts to social goods like Medicaid.
There’s always one!
