Georgia State Sen. Michael Williams said President Donald Trump’s alleged use of the N-word shouldn’t be used against him because it was the past.
He also said that it’s separate from his ability to run the country.
In an interview with CNN, Williams stated: “To be clear, personally, it is always wrong. It’s always wrong to use that word. But as the president today he has not used that word. As a president today he has not done that. To hold somebody accountable for something he did years ago as our president today, I think it sets a bad precedent.”
Trump “has his personal beliefs, his personal ideas. I truly believe he is able to separate those from how he is running the country,” Williams said.
Georgia senator says he has no problem if Trump used n-word in the past
Our CEO, Luke Visconti, weighed in on the senator’s sentiment saying: “I can understand why the senator feels this way. He supports a man who cheated on his first wife with the second wife, took the fifth amendment 97 times in his second divorce and apparently had unprotected sex with a porn star and a Playboy “model” while his third wife was holding their infant. You wouldn’t want your hero to be judged by his past actions if a man like Donald Trump is your hero. My advice would be to pick better heros.”
The issue of whether or not President Trump used the n-word began when former White House staffer Omarosa Manigault Newman wrote about it in her new book.
Her book “Unhinged,” which was released this week, alleges that Trump used the racial slur on the set of “The Apprentice” and that a recording of it exists.
