“Demographically pursuing justice”

"Demographically pursuing justice"

Remember when Trump said this about the judge in the Trump University case?
Dickerson: No, no, for him, how do his Mexican parents have to do with him not ruling for you? 
Trump: He is a member of a club or society, very strongly pro-Mexican, which is all fine. But I say he's got bias. I want to build a wall. I'm going to build a wall...
Yeah, that was a nice one. Well, apparently, his supporters are upset that the Grand Jury has a few too many dark-skinned faces:
"Fox & Friends" co-host Brian Kilmeade complained Wednesday about the reported racial makeup of special counsel Robert Mueller's grand jury, saying that the grand jury isn't even "demographically pursuing justice" because of its reported lack of white men.

Kilmeade referred to an anonymous source who told the New York Postthat the grand jury room looked like a Black Lives Matter rally or an event for Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.). The Post's source said that the only white man in the room was the prosecutor himself. 
"So it's not even emblematic of something that might be, perhaps, demographically pursuing justice," the host said.
“Maybe they found these jurors in central casting, or at a Black Lives Matter rally in Berkeley [Calif.]," the Post's source said, claiming that 11 of the 20 jurors were African-Americans.

“That room isn’t a room where POTUS gets a fair shake," the witness said.
They seem to believe that Trump is entitled to a jury of rich, white toadies. You know, like the Republican caucus.

They aren't even trying to hide their racism anymore. But why would they? His open racism is why Trump became president of the United States. It's a winner.
