The media has tried in vain to tie Donald Trump to the KKK, David Duke, Adolf Hitler and the Nazis. They’ve falsely called him a racist, a fascist, a totalitarian and an authoritarian.
The New York Times recently visited Trump’s campaign office in Florida and they were stunned to find people from very diverse backgrounds working for the Republican candidate.

Here’s part of the story:
Donald Trump’s Tampa Office Is an Unlikely Melting Pot
Mireya Linsky, born to a Jewish family in Cuba, came to the United States as a refugee at age 5. Her family lived in public housing here for several years and sometimes relied on assistance from Catholic Charities. She has spent the past 33 years working for the Hillsborough County School District.
So Mrs. Linsky, 55, understands that some may see certain contradictions in the fact that she is now spending several nights a week volunteering here at Donald J. Trump’s campaign office. “Like I’m just pulling the drawbridge up behind me,” she says.
Yet Mrs. Linsky is also quick to acknowledge a long list of racial fears and resentments that she says help explain why she is drawn to Mr. Trump: She is furious at undocumented workers who “come basically to see what they can get.” She is wary of Muslim Americans imposing their religion on communities in the United States. She is fearful of more American jobs being outsourced to China, India or Mexico. She even suspects President Obama “has a dislike for white folks.”
“We’re not taking care of our own,” she said.
For a campaign frequently depicted as offering a rallying point for the white working class, the people volunteering to help Mr. Trump here are noteworthy for their ethnic diversity. They include a young woman who recently arrived from Peru; an immigrant from the Philippines; a 70-year-old Lakota Indian; a teenage son of Russian immigrants; a Mexican-American.
They range the political spectrum, too, from lifelong Democrat to independent to libertarian to conservative Republican.
Isn’t it funny how the liberal media is surprised by this?
They truly don’t understand what’s happening here.
