The emperor has no brains. Who fucking cares about his clothes?

Earlier this month, Emperor Barry spoke in Poland about two police shootings of black suspects, one in Louisiana and one in Minnesota. As usual, he spoke with little or no knowledge of the facts, but with pure conviction of the motivations:
But what I can say is that all of us as Americans should be troubled by the news. These are not isolated incidents. They are symptomatic of a broader set of racial disparities that exist in our criminal justice system.
. . .
There are biases, some conscious and unconscious, that have to be rooted out. That’s not an attack on law enforcement. That is reflective of the values that the vast majority of law enforcement bring to the job.
Having established, by presidential fiat, that the police are a bunch of racist killers, Barry was forced to suck it up when five police officers were killed in Dallas and another three in Baton Rouge, La., shortly after he called all police officers racist. And then this:
A police officer in Kansas City, Kansas, who was shot Tuesday while chasing suspects allegedly involved in a drive-by shooting, has died, police Chief Terry Zeigler said.
The officer was identified as Capt. Robert Melton. He was 46 years old and had been with the department for 17 years.
Zeigler told reporters the officer was looking for four people in a car some time before 2 p.m. when the vehicle was spotted and a chase began. The chase ended about 2 miles from where the suspects were initially reported to a 911 dispatcher.
"As Capt. Melton was arriving, the suspects bailed from the vehicle and opened fire," the chief said. "I don't have any more details than that."
So, just a bunch of racist police officers doing their jobs. Fuck you, Emperor.
