If you think “Aaron Burr” of the cast of “Hamilton” was disrespectful to Pence but you didn’t think Congressman Joe Wilson was disrespectful when he twice shouted, “You lie!” at President Obama during his first joint address to congress in 2009, you are a hypocrite and you are a racist.

If you criticized the security costs of First Lady Michelle Obama going on a self-funded vacation to Spain but you are not criticizing the security costs of Trump’s spouse continuing to live in New York after inauguration day, you are a hypocrite and you are a racist.

If you watched the bare-armed spouse of Trump meeting in The White House with First Lady Michelle Obama and you were not immediately repulsed by her bare white skin but you criticized First Lady Michelle Obama for wearing sleeveless dresses, you are a hypocrite and you are a racist.

If you disparage the culture and morals of a young black girl who has children by three different fathers but you do not disparage the culture and morals of Trump who has children by three different baby-mommas, you are a hypocrite and you are a racist.

If you referred to President Obama’s policy on Muslims entering the country as “inviting terrorists” but you are okay with Trump now adopting President Obama’s same policy, you are a hypocrite and you are a racist.

If you said President Obama’s healthcare plan is ruining our country but you are okay with Trump adopting many of the same provisions, you are a hypocrite and you are a racist.

If you think it is a good idea for Trump to sign a stimulus bill during his first year in office in order to “jump-start the economy” but you opposed President Obama’s American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, you are a hypocrite and you are a racist.

If you believe it is a travesty that the national debt doubled under President Obama but you do not believe it was an equal travesty that the national debt doubled under Bush and tripled under Reagan, you are a hypocrite and you are a racist.

If you say “the people have spoken” in an election where Trump got 62 million votes but you didn’t accept that the people had spoken when President Obama got 69.5 million votes, you are a hypocrite and you are a racist.

If you say Trump has a mandate to govern when he LOST the popular vote by 1.5 million votes but you didn’t say President Obama had a mandate to govern when he WON the popular vote by almost 10 million votes, you are a hypocrite and you are a racist.

If you think liberals should cooperate with Trump instead of obstructing him but you never saw anything wrong with conservatives meeting on the night of President Obama’s inauguration and devising a plan to obstruct him on everything for eight years, you are a hypocrite and you are a racist.

If you think Senate Democrats should not filibuster Trump’s Supreme Court nominees for his entire time in office but you see nothing wrong with Senate Republicans continuing to refuse to even hold a vote on President Obama’s nominee after almost a year-long vacancy, you are a hypocrite and you are a racist.

If you criticized President Obama for having previously attended the church of Rev. Jeremiah Wright (based on your perception that Rev. Wright is a racist) but you think it is perfectly okay for Trump to have as his chief political advisor in the White House an anti-Semitic white-supremacist, you are a hypocrite and you are a racist. And you hate God’s Chosen People.

And if you think we are going to allow you to appropriate President Obama’s legacy without us daily pointing out: 1.) where Trump is taking credit for something President Obama already accomplished but you refused to recognize; 2.) where Trump is doing — without criticism from you — the same thing that you criticized President Obama for doing; or, 3.) where Trump is accomplishing something that President Obama tried to accomplished but couldn’t only because Republicans blocked him — you are delusional.
