Ole Miss prof: Trump's 'juicy booty' is 'proof that god is white'
- University of Mississippi professor Kiese Laymon is very upset that President Donald Trump is "impulsive, greedy, [and] gleefully ignorant," but also "has a big booty."
- Laymon also said “when I read like Trump in 3rd grade, all my boys would whisper, ‘Why he can't read?'...over thirty years later, this bastard gets a standing ovation for never ever being hooked on phonics.”
- The university distanced itself from the "booty" remark, saying that the professor made it "in his personal capacity."
A University of Mississippi professor tweeted about President Donald Trump and his “juicy booty."
“Trump is what white folks feared the 1st black president would be except he's a mascot for white supremacy,” Ole Miss English and creative writing professor Kiese Laymon tweeted on September 12. “He's impulsive, greedy, gleefully ignorant, big bootied, erratic, terrible w money, sexually violent, hooks up felonious friends, has 3 baby mamas, & eats all the chicken.”
“The fact that he has a big booty is the greatest betrayal. Spiritually, he belongs to the land of the booty-bereft,” one of his followers replied.
“This is what keeps me up at night. Waste of a juicy booty on that evil fucker. proof that god is white, chile” Professor Laymon responded.

“His [Trump’s] booty is on point,” Laymon said in a separate reply on the same thread, complaining that it made him “so mad” that it is “wide. High. Juicy.”
On them lower frequencies, his booty is on point, lil bruh. Wide. High. Juicy. It makes me so mad.— Kiese (@KieseLaymon) September 13, 2018
“He made those statements in his personal capacity, not on behalf of the university,” a University of Mississippi spokesman told Campus Reform.
Laymon is a frequent critic of the President on Twitter.
“How many friends and cousins do you know who have gone to prison for selling, buying or stealing less than a thousand dollars of stuff?” he tweeted in August. “This man and his gang stole hundreds of millions. And an election. And he free. Whole system rotten.”
Earlier this year, he tweeted, “When I read like Trump in 3rd grade, all my boys would whisper, ‘Why he can't read? Ain't his mama a teacher? Why he reading like that?’ Over thirty years later, this bastard gets a standing ovation for never ever being hooked on phonics.”
“Like our brilliant President, I love to joke. Donald Trump is actually my hero. I want to live and love like him when I grow up. He's a great model for the kids of this country,” Laymon facetiously told Campus Reform. “One day I hope to use satire and locker room talk as well as he does. Make America Great Again. Praise Trump.”
Laymon’s past writings include What I Pledge Allegiance To, an essay in which he says the American flag is worse than the Mississippi flag of secession because “it reminds me of what we black folk have survived and witnessed at the hands of white folk hiding behind the American flag for centuries.”
He concludes his essay by writing “I pledge that white Mississippians and white Americans will never dictate who I choose to be or what symbols I choose [to] imbue with meaning. I pledge to not allow American ideals of patriotism and masculinity to make me hard, abusive, generic, and brittle.”
In addition to his position at Ole Miss, Kiese Laymon was previously a Distinguished Visiting Professor of Nonfiction at the University of Iowa in 2017, where he previously taught “Autobio-graphical Narrative Writing in the Age of Obama, Trump, the Internet, the 24-Hour News Cycle, and You” at the University of Iowa.
“I have little to no desire to write to what people would call a ‘heteronormative white male gaze,’” Laymon once told the University of Iowa English department. He noted that before the internet, he had to, explaining how the internet allows essay writers to access different audiences.
The Ole Miss English Department did not return requests for comment.
