Donald Trump Brings His Usual Level Of Wisdom To The Ferguson Conversation

Donald Trump has thrown in his two cents about recent events in Ferguson, Missouri. Was anyone asking for his take? Who cares!

In his Monday call to "Fox and Friends," Trump dropped some knowledge. "This is a racial situation,” the real estate mogul said. “It’s not covered that way in the press. It’s not even discussed in the press. They don’t want to discuss it. They stay away from it."

Co-host Brian Kilmeade gave the appropriately skeptical response, saying, "That’s all we’re talking about is the race thing. This is not just a shooting."

Trump insisted that "the press really seldom talks about" racial politics in Ferguson, or even Chicago and other places. Which, totally wrong, but whatever.
