More power to him
And shame to Trump for outing an American agent--just like Valerie Plame was outed by Libby in the lead up to the fake yellow-cake allegations--

Racists will never admit their racism--because racism is recognized a a negative character flaw...
They cloak it in various other labels thought to be perceived as non-pejorative and unbiased...

Trump is a racist--
His absolute inability to recognize that the Central Park 5 were railroaded into their guilty pleas and were exhonorated by DNA evidence years after their conviction (and Trump's ads supporting their conviction) is proof that he cannot admit to a mistake and that he is a racist to his core...
Yea, Trump is so extremely racist that he pardoned Jack Johnson, a black man punished for a law that was born out of racism. Because that is the kind of thing a true racist does, right?

It was a wet kiss to Stallone that offered little downside.

The NFL kneelers actions were equivalent to going to a military cementary and urinating on a grave. It's an action of incredible disrespect to those who served our country.

From Soro's spokesman:
Quote:
A spokesman for Mr Soros called the comments “insulting” and “an affront to Mr Soros and his family,” who survived as Jews in Nazi-occupied Hungary by masquerading as Christians. Mr Soros was aged 13 at the time.

“[Mr Soros] did not collaborate with Nazis. He did not help round up people. He did not confiscate anybody’s property,” the spokesman said in a statement. “Such allegations are insulting to the victims of the Holocaust, to all Jewish people, and to anyone who honours the truth.”

What an idiotic thing Roseanne did - she fried her TV career and put scores of people out of work. Whether she felt that way or not, she should know better than to make disgusting comments about public figures. There is no excuse.

All that being said, many times I have heard/read Michelle Obama being compared to a monkey and other swarmy terms by so-called regular citizens. The abusive culture in this country has hit its tipping point... I pray.

I was taught from an early age that "people do not choose their colors." That has followed me throughout my life. Too bad "If you can't say something nice about someone, then don't say it at all" hasn't permeated our society.

It seems since Trump became President, it's no holds barred with people's behavior. Just look at him: He makes personal comments about everyone with whom he comes in contact, be they negative or laudatory. Trump cannot pass up an opportunity to say something personal.

I am frankly embarrassed to be an American. I guess refinement is too much to expect from the "most powerful office in the world." My Canadian relatives are laughing themselves silly that such a buffoon made it to the presidency. While I agreed with a few of Trump's policies in the beginning, they sure aren't enough to keep him afloat IMHO. He has single handedly taken down the Republican party.
(No, I am not a Republican nor a left-leaning liberal.)
