Donald Trump has immediately leapt to defend the police shooting of an African-American man without knowing anything about the case beyond the fact that a black guy got shot.
The melting waxwork of himself made the statement in amongst a collection of other similarly awful statements around race relations, women’s rights and the idea of being nice to poor people.
“I think it’s great. It’s great; that’s what it is,” said Trump.
“The police are great, and they’re out there doing a great job. And if they shoot up a black neighbourhood once in a while, well, we all have our hobbies.
“I mean hey, I have to play golf once in a while, and I think that’s great. It’s a great way to relax.”
“I automatically trust the police in America. They’ve never bothered me. They’re winners; they always get the bad guy, and they win. I think that’s great.
“Black guys and minorities have given me all kinds of problems recently, so if one or two end up getting shot for minor misdemeanours…I think that’s great.”
