Trump runs most racist campaign in modern times

Donald Trump is running the most openly racist campaign among major candidates for President of the United States in modern times. Yes, I remember when the KKK endorsed George W. Bush, but Bush at least tried to hide that.

Trump had right-wing talk show host Howie Carr of WRKO radio in Boston appear at one of his rallies today in Maine. Why Maine, I have no idea, because Trump has no chance of winning Maine anyway. In any event, Carr gave a speech where he mentioned Elizabeth Warren - and made fun of her Cherokee background by launching into a war chant.

The Trump campaign keeps using this outdated meme - just as Scott "Records" Brown did. Frankly, it's racist. Incredibly racist. Racist beyond words.

What would the FCC think about WRKO having a racist talk show? Remember that station in Kansas that got its license pulled because it broadcast racist propaganda?
