I don't believe for a second that Trump "fell asleep" during Obama's speech. Firstly, he watches TV obsessively and second, he has to hear every criticism just as much as every compliment. But he only actually takes in the latter and he prepares his insults for the former. And, since those criticisms were coming from the mouth of an accomplished black man he was hanging on every word. He hates the fact that someone of color could be smarter or more distinguished than he. Just look at the mindless attacks of a very personal nature on Maxine Waters, Lebron James, Obama, etc etc. Like I've said before, you will never see Trump trash the members of a hockey team for protesting. And, his propensity for insulting countries that are made up of folks of color, is quite telling. Hell, even American citizens in Puerto Rico, a protectorate of ours, were of no concern to him during the hurricane. The only gesture Trump made was an awful display of disdain where he tossed paper towels to the crowd. And now it's been revealed that he has doubled down by raiding FEMA in favor of ICE to the tune of almost ten million dollars. He has made no attempt to hide his racist views or his inability to feel empathy when anyone but rich white folks are in harm's way. He's told America exactly who and what he is but some of us still don't hear or see it.
