The Demonic's say worse about Trump every day than what he said about the Hate Squad so if they are going to try to denounce speech people don't like, they should just denounce everything the Hate Squad says or just shut up and never speak.

Each of them will have to answer to the fact that they were complicit with the racist comments. They're really cowards afraid of being tweeted about by Trump - well, we'll see how this affects them in their next election.

Using the actual definition of racism, can you provide a shred of evidence that what he said was racist? If you cannot then you are a liar.

I'd say Trump probably feels about the same.
Totally agree. But remember we are dealing with people that are "traumatized" by murals of George Washington that happen to have Blacks and Indians portrayed, and by statues, paintings, flags, symbols, and anything else they can think of in which to be OFFENDED, and "triggered". Oh my, the horrors!

These people need to Get a LIFE.

I didn't see race mentioned anywhere until "The Squad" threw that in. They used it against Nancy first and then Trump. That works well at first, lots of media coverage because the media is generally liberal based.

But if they plan to cry racism after every bit of criticism they receive, it will quickly lose it's effectiveness. And probably backfire on them. They apparently don't realize that yet, but they will.

Trump is more popular among Republican voters than the congress critters are, and they want to get reelected.

No, they didn't drop the ball. And there was nothing racist in directing a tweet to members of congress who've been spewing hatred about this country almost daily. But it's hilarious how you're equating [all-but-4] Republicans' party-line vote with unquestioning support and dictatorships, while dismissing the unanimous Democrat vote. Excuse me, while I laugh my asinine off [].

Hypocrisy, thy name is Democrat.

Ok, I'll play. How about "Go back to where you came from" ? This is about one of the most racist /bigoted comments anyone can make. Early in our history, people coming here from Poland heard that phrase. So did people from Italy, Germany, Africa, and every other foreign country. They were called ugly names, and told "Go back to where you came from !"

For the President of this country to lower himself to that level shows what he is like inside and how he truly feels. I hope this is a wake up call to anyone whose ancestors heard those words, and they take offense at hearing it in 2019......long after that way of thinking should have gone away for good.

Yes, telling a minority to go back to the country they came from is a clear racist remark.



Anyone who doesn't think so is ignorant, in my opinion. Not worth arguing the point if you don't comprehend - it's like arguing with White Supremacists. Their minds can't ever be changed to the day they die.

That really is it. The midterm elections scared the beJesus out of the GOP. When so many of them were replaced by Democrats, they began to see the tide turning. They know they could be next, so they walk on eggs. Their one last chance is to not upset the dwindling Trump base.
