Wife of New Trump Communications Boss is a Virulent Racist

Darla Shine’s racist beliefs filled her Twitter page, which she deleted as soon as the White House announced that her husband, Bill Shine, was officially joining the Trump administration as assistant to the president and deputy chief of staff for communications.

Shine’s racist statements dating back to 2015 included questioning why white people would be labeled racist for using the N-word and mocking African nations and Black hair.

On Friday, Mediate published a report with screenshots obtained from her Twitter account, @darlashine, before it was deleted.

In January, in defense of President Donald Trump’s sh**hole comment about African nations, she tweeted a racist meme making fun of the progress of African nations when compared to Europe:

She mocked the hairstyles of Black women:

“If white chicks can’t perm their hair Black chicks can’t go blonde.”

She bashed NBA players LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, Chris Paul and Carmelo Anthony, who spoke out about police-related shootings during the ESPY awards in 2016.

“Comical to see these over paid Black sports stars give Black Lives Matter speech at ESPYs.”

She constantly voiced her opinion against the Black Lives Matter movement:

“Imagine the protests if three white teens murdered a Black woman #AmandaBlackburn Only Black Lives Matter I guess,” said a tweet about the fatal 2015 shooting of Amanda Blackburn in Indianapolis.

“The new stand-in President at #mizzou is Black. Will every white College President have to be replaced,” she said a 2015 tweet.

Shine had a problem with Black people being able to say the N-word while she and other white people can’t.

“Funny how critics calling to ban Gone With the Wind, Jefferson Memorial, but no talk of banning the N-word or Rap songs with N-word in it.”

“Just singing to one of my jams ‘Golddigger’ by Kanye West when I realized If I sing along to the verse ‘Broke Ni**er’ I might be a racist,” tweeted Shine in July 2015 (West’s song does not include a hard R version of the slur).

“At FSU u can punch a girl in the face & only get kicked off football team but sing a song with the N word in it & you’re expelled at Oklahoma,” said a 2015 tweet.

“Rebel Flag off State Buildings in SC but cop killer rap songs, songs about rape, and songs with N word continue to play on the radio.”

Shine linked Black children with an anti-vaccination conspiracy theory:

“1 out of 10 Black boys has autism,” said a February 2016 tweet.

In addition to Shine consistently bashing Black people over the years, she has made some disparaging posts about Muslims. She said the following in regard to ABC firing Roseanne Barr over her racist tweet directed at Valerie Jarrett:

“Wondering what it was that set off the #ABC execs the #Ape comment or really the #MuslimBrotherhood comment,” she said a tweet in May.

Prior to working at the White House, Shine’s husband was a Fox News co-president who resigned from the network in May 2017 following Bill O’Reilly and Roger Ailes sexual harassment allegations. Apparently, at the same time Bill Shine was at a network where “institutional racism blunts efforts to attract a more multicultural audience,” Darla Shine, a former television producer and author of a book called “Happy Housewives,” was spreading the same type of racism on social media.

In regard to Darla Shine’s social media history, the White House has not responded to requests from media for comment.
