Maine Gov. Paul LePage attempts to rebuke the idea that he's a racist by blaming people of color for his state's war on drugs:
“Look, a bad guy is a bad guy, I don’t care what color it is. When you go to war, if you know the enemy, the enemy dresses in red and you dress in blue, you shoot at red, don’t you?”
“You shoot at the enemy. You try to identify the enemy. And the enemy right now, the overwhelming majority right now coming in are people of color or people of Hispanic origin. I can’t help that. I just can’t help it. Those are the facts."
How do you think he did?
Of course, this comes a day after he called a state legislator a "cocksucker" for having a different opinion.
He seems like an interesting guy, huh?
