Trump Just Attacked President Obama for his Statement Condemning Him, ‘I’m the Least Racist Person!’

Donald Trump is addressing recent comments made by President Barack Obama via his favorite television show, Fox & Friends.

White House televisions were clearly tuned into Fox News on Tuesday morning, as Trump retweeted comments made by Fox News hosts Brian Kilmeade and Ainsley Earhardt that defended Trump amidst political rancor that has come from the weekend mass shootings that have left 31 individuals dead.

On Monday, Obama released a statement that did not name any specific politician he condemned the rhetoric of leaders which “normalizes racist sentiments.” Steve Doocy read from Obama’s statement:

“We should soundly reject language coming out of the mouths of any of our leaders that feeds a climate of fear and hatred or normalizes racist sentiments. Leaders to demonize us that don’t look like us or immigrants threaten our way of life or refer to people as subhuman or America belongs to one certain type of people it halls no place in our Politics and our public life. And it’s time for the overwhelming majority of Americans of goodwill, of every race and faith and political party to say as much clear and unequivocally.”

Kilmeade followed with “I guess he is talking about President Trump,” to which Doocy replied, “Do you think?”

Kilmeade then noted “I’m just wondering did George Bush ever condemn President Obama after Sandy Hook? Did President Bush ever come at — he had 32 shootings of mass shootings during his reign. Nobody has said President Obama is out of control.” He then added, “17 so far for President Trump is way too high.”

Just in case his Twitter followers missed Kilmeade’s observation, Trump tweeted the quote:
