Old Rich White Guy Rupert Murdoch Doesn’t Think Barack Obama Is A “Real Black President”

Apparently, somebody over at Fox didn’t realize that Rupert Murdoch hadn’t gone to bed Wednesday night like they thought and left him unsupervised with his smartphone. The Fox News head honcho and expert on American race issues sent out a tweet proclaiming his admiration for Republican Presidential candidate and wake and bake enthusiast Ben Carson and stating that the retired neurosurgeon would be a “real black president,” obviously inferring that the current occupant of the White House is a fake black man.


The 84-year-old Australian immigrant tried to clarify and justify his first tweet by claiming that a story in New York magazine explains the black community’s frustration with President Obama.  


Carson has had a tough go of it over the past two weeks with the media. First, he had to deal with the fallout over his comments regarding his disapproval of a Muslim ever being President of the United States. After ineffectively digging himself out of that hole, he buried himself once again by victim blaming the victims of last week’s mass shooting in Oregon. It appears that huge Carson fan Murdoch is trying to go to bat for his favorite GOP White House hopeful by claiming he’ll be the Mr. Fix-It of racial issues in America, unlike that asshole Obummer.

CNN’s Brian Stelter pointed out that Murdoch has been utilizing his Twitter account — which he infrequently uses — to promote Carson, who he apparently thinks should be the next POTUS. For a period of about a week, Murdoch did nothing but highlight Carson on his account.


  As you would guess, Murdoch was immediately mocked on Twitter for his crazy racist uncle style tweet.


This is going to be a LONG election season.
