So, yeah... he's a racist.

Nevermind that 3 of those women were all born right here in the USA to legal citizens.

So, yeah... they are working on fixing the USA, I guess?
He is targeting people in Congress who clearly hate America.

Clinton said to Ted Kennedy: “You know, Ted, a few years ago this guy would have been carrying our bags.” And Clinton’s impression of Obama hasn’t improved since 2008. Last year he told a bunch of friends, and this is in Ed Klein’s book, The Amateur, Clinton told a bunch of friends: You know this guy, Obama, he doesn’t even know how to be president. He doesn’t know how the world works. How could he? He’s been too busy fetching my coffee, carrying my bags. (chuckling)

My guess it is only the right that make racist comment in liberal/progressive eyes and the most favorite democratic president ever comments don't really count.

And it will continue to do him no real damage, since the canard itself is so worn from overuse. You called him a misogynistic racist yesterday, you did it again today, and you'll do it tomorrow. Everyone got your point a long, long, long, insufferably long time ago.

Agree or disagree with you, we all know where you stand on this particular point, each and every day. In a formal debate, you would lose points by using the exact same argument repeated ad nauseum, and in this war within the court of opinion, you've used this particular weapon for all it is worth, which allows Trump almost carte blanche to do as he will, free from reprisal.

His trolling is wildly effective, and your "rebuttal" to me makes that perfectly clear. You are feeding the troll, which is Internet rookie mistake numero uno. You aren't te only one, and you certainly aren't feeding him as much as the actual media, especially the pearl clutching Never Trumpers on the GOP side of the ledger like the folks at Natonal Review et al. But you are feeding the troll nonetheless.

Watch how this week plays out....you'll see. Trump is the embodiment of what would happen if /b/ on 4Chan got elected President.
And I will continue to speak out. Insufferably so. I'm not ever going to be part of a formal debate. But I sure as hell will keep on exposing him for what he is, as will millions of other people. You call it feeding the troll. I call it exposing him for the sorry excuse of a president and human being that he is.

So hating America is not marching in lock step with what he says. Got it.

I've got news for you. There are many different opinions in this country and will continue to be. Being able to voice your opinion and speak out is what makes America, America. Nobody in Congress hates America, no matter how many times that worn out drum gets beaten.

Since you clearly don't remember the 2016 campaign, you might want to do some research. Until then, allow me:

That's old news, and something LG said in 2015. Since then, he's repudiated that, stating that he's never heard anything from Trump which would indicate that he's a racist.

IOW, Lindsay Graham has admitted that he lied in the midst of a campaign.

Next.
He doesn't want Trump to make fun of him so he decided that it was best to be the a$$ kisser.

No one decides someone esle is a racist. It is the words and actions those someones intentionally utilize when they are attempting to reveal themselves and inform others of their racism or xenophobia that self labels them as racists.

Trump apologists have no leg to stand on today. The President of the United States of America telling elected politicians, Americans, to ‘go back’ to other countries is not OK. He should be condemned!

No it is not breaking news, as Trump has told us all along who he is. His repeating it and the GOP condoning it is also not news. Neither redundancies make it acceptable or tolerable, however, and they are un-American sentiments and must be opposed at every transgression. Trump is now relying on an even more overt and blunt racism strategy than in 2016. This was an outright divisive tactic from someone who does not even understand the concept and principles of The UNITED States of America. Shameful and disgusting.
I will not shame him. He's absolutely right. Don't care what the left thinks or their multitude of tired labels that they have tried to throw on people - it's old, tired, and a very lazy way to "debate" - because it's not debate. When I hear a lefty throw out the "racist!!!!" card, I realize that they can't debate the topic - can't take the time to even try to understand why someone would say what Trump did. As if people haven't been saying it for years - on. both. sides. They just screech "racismZZ!11!!!!!!"

Boring.

But...but...but...CLINTON! So to be clear, Trump's racist comments today are excusable because another president made a racist comment years ago?

Well, at least you aren't denying that Trump's tweets were racist. I guess that's some forward progress.
