Roland Martin Show Audio Podcast: Is Donald Trump Campaigning To Become Thug In Chief Of The United States?


“Obama has driven these folks mad. They don’t know what to do, they don’t know what to say and all of a sudden Donald Trump comes along and man he is manna from heaven as far as they are concerned.”

In this edition of The Roland Martin Show Audio Podcast, Martin discusses the increasing incidents of violence taking place at Donald Trump campaign rallies.

“Apprentice” star Omarosa has come out in defense of Donald Trump and made excuses for the acts of violence taking place at Trump rallies. In a recent interview with Chris Matthews on MSNBC, Omarosa said:

“You have a right to get into a closed, private event, and you get what’s coming to you. I do not condone violence, but if you go into an environment where you’re interrupting 13, 14 times, you do expect a hug or kumbaya?”


Martin challenged the former Apprentice contestant to call out the GOP frontrunner for the tactics he is using to garner support during the Republican primary races.

Listen to Roland Martin’s NewsOne Now interview with Rakeem Jones who was attacked by a 78-year-old White man as he was being escorted out of a Trump rally in Fayetteville, North Carolina. Listen to excerpts of the NewsOne Now panel discussion following Martin’s interview of Jones.

Plus, Martin takes your calls on the topic of the day, is Donald Trump trying to become Thug in Chief of the United States of America?

Bill Maher and Chris Matthews squared off with conservative radio host Roger Hedgecock on Real Time tonight over the Republicans’ economic policies and why they hate Obama. Matthews told Hedgecock that most of the economic criticisms have not-too-subtle racial implications, trying to get him to admit that he and his fellow conservatives just have a blanket hatred of Obama.

Chris Matthews Defends Attack On Priebus: GOP ‘Dividing Country Along Racial Lines’

TAMPA — In an emotional interview with POLITICO tonight, MSNBC host Chris Matthews defended his spirited attack against RNC Chairman Reince Priebus, in which he alleged that the Republican party was guilty of playing the race card against President Barack Obama.

“It is obvious that this is something I care passionately about: race was abused by white politicians in my lifetime, including Reagan. For someone to come on the program and deny that this is part of their process, I couldn’t take that,” Matthews said. “This is something I really, deeply believe in. We grew up in a country where appeals to race have been awful, terrible. This language — we are beyond this. It had to be called out.”

On today’s edition of MSNBC’s Morning Joe, Matthews told Priebus that Republican attacks on President Obama’s welfare stance, as well as Mitt Romney’s remark about his birth certificate, were evidence that the Republican party was playing “that little ethnic card… the race card,” and called it an embarrassment to the party.

Matthews criticism, leveled with a remarkable emotional intensity, visibly rankled the show’s co-hosts, Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski. RNC spokesman Sean Spicer called it “outlandish.” Priebus called it “garbage,” and later charged Matthews with trying to be “the biggest jerk in the room.” In an interview with Matthews Monday evening, Newt Gingrich charged Matthews with racism.

Chris Matthews: Obama ‘Perfect’ Father, Husband, American — But ‘All They Do Is Trash The Guy’ (VIDEO)

It’s far from a secret that MSNBC host Chris Matthews has something of a soft spot for President Barack Obama. Lest you forget about the thrill that once ran up his leg, Matthews issued another vehement defense of the president on Tuesday, lamenting that even though Obama is the “perfect” father, husband and American, all his critics do is “trash” him.

Above a chyron posing the question “Why The Hatred?” Matthews decried the “crazy yahoo talk” — citing examples such as Newt Gingrich, who asserted Obama is the most “radical” president in American history, as well as talk of Obama’s “colonial” attitudes and John Sununu‘s recent remark that Obama should “learn how to be an American.” Incredulous, Matthews argued that the president “has done everything right.” He “raised his family right, he’s fought his way all the way to the top of the Harvard Law Review, in a blind test becomes head of the Review, the top editor there. Everything he has done, he is clean as a whistle.”

Matthews further lamented:

He’s not only broken any law, he’s never done anything wrong. He’s the perfect father, the perfect husband, the perfect American — and all they do is trash the guy. And it’s impossible for me to believe they would have said the same thing about a Walter Mondale, a Jimmy Carter or a Bill Clinton.
