NYT, Twitter Rip Trump for Using Word ‘Thug,’ Obama Used Same Term in 2015

The New York Times and other outlets ripped President Trump’s tweet describing Minneapolis protesters as “thugs” Friday; conveniently forgetting President Obama used the same term when describing Baltimore rioters back in 2015.

“These THUGS are dishonoring the memory of George Floyd, and I won’t let that happen,” posted the President on social media.

My understanding is you’ve got some of the same organizers going back into these communities to try and clean-up the aftermath of a handful of criminals and thugs who tore up the place,” said Obama back in 2015.
