A group known as Deport Racism recently scored some media attention with an offensive video aimed at exposing the ostensible racist elements of Donald Trump’s proposed immigration plan. Starring a number of young children, the ad features a profanity-laden script in which kids call Trump names including “racist d—k” and “motherf—er.”
One boy admonishes the candidate directly, saying: “If you don’t like our Constitution and what it stands for, get the f—k out of my country.”

An overwhelming majority of viewers joined several prominent voices who denounced the video as wholly inappropriate. “I think it is borderline child abuse,” Fox News contributor Geraldo Rivera said Friday. “It’s terrible, it’s counterproductive, it will rebound in a very negative way.”

In a recent interview with Fox Business Network’s Maria Bartiromo, Trump addressed the controversial video, calling it “terrible” and declaring that it “totally backfired.”
He claims that the attention has in fact strengthened his campaign.
“People are actually going wild about it,” he said, “and saying ‘We’re going to support Trump now.’”
In addition to launching the obscene ad, Deport Racism has also promised to give $5,000 to any activist willing to audibly call Trump a racist during the live filming of this week’s episode of NBC’s Saturday Night Live, which the candidate is slated to host.
