*Donald Trump’s offensive behavior toward minorities continues to be exposed as news surfaces about a Trump Casino worker who claims blacks were removed from the view of the real estate mogul and his ex-wife Ivana.
Kip Brown’s claims are captured in a New Yorker magazine story written by Nick Paumgarten. The following is a portion of what Paumgarten wrote for the publication:
I met a bus driver named Kip Brown, who worked the Port Authority route, up and back each morning, for Academy Bus Lines. He had been at Academy for fifteen years and was No. 3 in seniority, out of seventy drivers in the region. As ridership has fallen, Academy has been cutting back on its schedule. The number of visitors arriving by bus is an eighth of what it was a quarter century ago. In the spring, Brown, just forty-seven, retired.
Now he was looking for work as a livery driver. Brown also used to work in the casinos, at the Showboat, bussing tables, and at Trump’s Castle, stripping and waxing floors. “When Donald and Ivana came to the casino, the bosses would order all the black people off the floor,” he said. “It was the eighties, I was a teen-ager, but I remember it: they put us all in the back.”
Considering Trump’s offensive comments about Mexican and Hispanic immigrants and African-Americans (whom Gawker noted are referred to as “the Blacks” by the Republican presidential hopeful), Brown’s claims may come as no surprise.
So what say you? Does this even strike a nerve with you or Republican voters or is it simply business as usual for man gunning to be the commander-in-chief?
