The White House jumped on comments House Speaker Paul Ryan made in order to characterize Donald Trump as a racist. But using the Obama administration’s exact same logic, Obama would also be a racist.

Just last year the United States Department of Justice was sued after it forced an immigration judge to recuse herself from “all immigration cases involving Iranians,”according to the Daily Caller.

Trump has long been critical of U.S. District Court Judge Gonzalo Curiel, who is hearing a Trump University lawsuit in his San Diego courtroom. Trump claims that the judge’s Mexican heritage should disqualify him from the case.

The Wisconsin Republican disavowed Trump’s comments about Curiel to reporters at a Washington, D.C. event Tuesday.

“I regret those comments he made,” Ryan said. “It’s absolutely unacceptable.”

He went on to say that the presumptive GOP presidential nominee’s statements were “sort of like the textbook definition of a racist comment,” but stopped short of actually calling Trump a racist.

Nonetheless, White House press secretary Josh Earnest latched onto Ryan’s comments like a drowning man to a life-preserver.

“Republicans — wrapped up their nomination process early,” Earnest said. “Apparently it was early enough to allow the Republican Speaker of the House to basically call the Republican presidential nominee a racist.”

However, the Obama administration apparently felt it incumbent to have a federal judge step down from hearing a case for the exact same reason — the judge’s national heritage.

The Daily Caller reported:

In 2015, immigration Judge A. Ashley Tabaddor sued the United States Department of Justice after it forced her to recuse herself from “all immigration cases involving Iranians.”


Earnest forgot two basic principle: Do a little research before you make assumptions, and people who live in glass houses should always avoid throwing stones.
