Bill Clinton was the first Black Rhodes scholar but he had to scoot on out of there, one step ahead of a rape charge. Did they say if this new batch of Rhodes scholars were the result of affirmative action?

I didn't know the Rhodes Scholar program had become tainted by Affirmative Action.
Cecil Rhodes would turn over in his grave if he knew about this and what has become of Rhodesia.

The Five Percent decrease in hate crimes committed by Whites and the Twenty Five Percent increase in Black hate crimes committed from 2014 to 2016 suggests Obama having more to do with Hell being imposed, than Trump.

Reactions from voters, even some who are otherwise skeptical of the president, show how the economy’s strong performance has bolstered Trump’s standing.

At a recent focus group that Peter Hart, a longtime Democratic pollster, conducted in Wilmington, N.C., for Emory University, even participants who voted for Trump last year sharply criticized his administration, calling it “chaotic”“embarrassing” and disappointing.

Of the five Trump voters among the dozen participants, only one still strongly supported the president. The harsh critiques from the other four followed a pattern that Hart found earlier this year, illustrating how a segment of Trump voters, mostly college-educated and middle- to upper-income whites, has turned against him because of his behavior.

But when the subject turned to the economy, opinions of Trump noticeably warmed.

Overwhelmingly, the POS in the oval office is still seen as an embarrassing azzhole by the majority of the citizens in the United States, whether they cast a vote for Trump or not.

You're a brain-dead Idiot, who doesn't even know what a Rhodes Scholar, is.
More than likely, you're around 40 y.o.a., and couldn't get out of Elementary School, so you quit because it was taking too much time away from your drug dealing, and street-hustling.
