Except he hires women to run his companies, to be his campaign manager, and in many other high power positions. Many women also support him and were at his rally. The only women I seen Trump go after are women who attacked him first, and then play the sexism card when he hits back... Women can talk about Trump's weight, penis, and hair, but when Trump hits back and talks about their looks, you all start crying that he hates allllllll women.

Of course his folks told him -- this is not what the President of the USA would support.


LOL, disavowed? Watch the clip from last night - he paused for many seconds letting the chant build up. Sure he disavowed it

Any one word, comment or tweet doesn't necessarily determine whether someone is racist, though just one can register on the radar of someone who is not. What is far more telling is the one word, comment or tweet in the context of the whole.

If for example, you can review all of Trump's history in these respects and not arrive at the same conclusion, then you have no such radar just like all racists and quasi-racists don't.

"Trump has assembled a long record of comment on issues involving African Americans as well as Mexicans, Hispanics more broadly, Native Americans, Muslims, Jews, immigrants, women, and people with disabilities. His statements have been reflected in his behavior—from public acts (placing ads calling for the execution of five young black and Latino men accused of rape, who were later shown to be innocent) to private preferences (“When Donald and Ivana came to the casino, the bosses would order all the black people off the floor,” a former employee of Trump’s Castle, in Atlantic City, New Jersey, told a writer for The New Yorker). Trump emerged as a political force owing to his full-throated embrace of “birtherism,” the false charge that the nation’s first black president, Barack Obama, was not born in the United States. His presidential campaign was fueled by nativist sentiment directed at nonwhite immigrants, and he proposed barring Muslims from entering the country. In 2016, Trump described himself to The Washington Post as “the least racist person that you’ve ever encountered.”

Here's where Trump fans will show their true colors.

First they will defend the chant.
Then they will defend Trump who decides the next day to disavow it......and some how blame TDS & the media for the whole incident.
^^^^This. If he had truly disliked it then he would have stopped the crowd right then and there and told them that this is not what America is about. But he didn't. He actually basked in the chant. He is a hypocritical moron.

If you are going to apply that (faulty) logic, then I guess you have to admit, it's not just the left... (Very next post, BTW)

You can rag on Trump all you want for his idiotic “go home” to native-born American women. Major Derp.

But were his words really racist? Well, if you believe they are, then you must also feel the same about Waters’ words. So ask yourself if you are able to be impartial and really think this out, or if you’re going to be blind to reality and just stick with “Trump’s a racist”.
The implicitness of telling a group of minorities to go back where they came from is clearly racist. Arguing it's not is like arguing cross-burnings and men in white hoods are not racist b/c no names or ethnic slurs are used. It's an old racist trope that everyone, Left AND Right, w/ the slightest grasp on history correctly called.

Waters' efforts were to deny racists a safe space to enjoy everyday life. That's not the same as telling someone they need to be expelled from the country for being a minority that thinks differently than you.

Not racist — if Omar was a lily white and from Ireland but had the same deeply racist, anti-semetic, and vulgar anti American views people would feel the same way.

America is always changing. Compare today with 1950-1960. Do you see any changes in civil rights? Do you see any programs to allow for equal opportunity? Do you see job protection laws? Better health care? Safer to consumers? Less pollution by factories? More dependency on solar energy? More cautious when entering wars?

Of course our politicians want to change -

Your point about her marriage is suspect. Have you based this on fact or hearsay?

She's an American just like you and I. No more, no less.
