The Time Trump Slammed 'Black-ish' For Being A 'Racist' Show

Remember the days when Donald Trump was just a TV host with a knack for tweeting? Thanks to Tracee Ellis Ross’ Golden Globe win for Best Actress in a TV Comedy on Sunday, an old tweet by the President-elect resurfaced (thanks to a tweet from New York Times writer, Dave Itzkoff) in all its bizarre glory. In 2014, Trump tweeted about his thoughts about “black-ish,” the show for which Ross won her Golden Globe this year.  How is ABC Television allowed to have a show entitled "Blackish"? Can you imagine the furor of a show, "Whiteish"! Racism at highest level?— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 1, 2014 “How is ABC Television allowed to have a show entitled ‘Blackish’?

They called it "Friends"…or "The Big Bang Theory" or "Seinfeld" or….you get the point, @realDonaldTrump— Rusty Redenbacher (@rustymk2) October 1, 2014 We gotta get you out of here for this @realDonaldTrump. Do you even know the definition of racism?https://t.co/UIKBMg313N— X (@XLNB) October 1, 2014 As for our response to Trump’s 2014 tweet: Giphy
