Nigel Farage believes Donald Trump’s “go back” comments in reference to women of colour was “genius”.

Trump sparked outrage by lambasting four congresswomen of colour with racially loaded language and phrases. He claimed the women, “originally came from countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe, the worst, most corrupt and inept anywhere in the world”. For the record, only one of the four women in question was born outside the United States, that being Ilhan Omar who was born in Somalia but came to the US in the 1990s as a child with her family.

You might recall Dumb and Dumber from such previous meetings as hanging out in a golden elevator despite claiming to be men of the people. Now the Brexit Party leader has come out in support of the President’s recent divisive comments.

In an interview with The Times, Farage said:

I thought, ‘Dear, oh dear, oh dear’. You realise, 48 hours on, it was genius because what’s happened is the Democrats gather round the Squad, which allows him to say, ‘Oh look, the Squad are the centre of the Democratic party.’

You can tell a lot about a person by the company they keep. Farage and Trump deserve each other and people are disgusted at the former UKIP leaders comments.
