Attack the liberals.

The President himself has come out and disavowed the chant .......so gotta shift from defending the chant to hurling insults at the lefties.........

This is not a rare deal either! It's happening all the time with Trump. Why are these people inspired by him?

An important question to consider and answer. Don't you think? Regardless what Trump might say in his own defense?

In the US, video has emerged of far right activists celebrating Donald Trumpís victory with what appear to be Nazi salutes.

WHY?
a tiny group of Nazis sig-heiled a trump video three years ago? absolutely terrifying.

You just described Trump. I'm not sure he's Irish, but basically you prove the point. He gets away with it because he's lilly white.

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.
red herring. why do you keep making stuff up?

Lily white isn't a minority in our country and her race is the predominant race of our country. Racist Trump wouldn't attack her ethnicity (especially since she's not from a "****hole" country as he says). He has golf course resorts there.


He'd attack her physical appearance ---call her nasty, disgusting, dumb, fat, ugly or whatever he does when insulting women.

Yes, I attack liberals for failing logic....I applaud the chant whether Trump does or not.

Right. What Trump said about McCain is one of the most despicable things I've heard come out of anyone's mouth, let alone a POTUS, but maybe this helps explain things a bit better too...

Someone who tends to say despicable things, are they likely to be despicable people? I mean down deep, likely racists and bigots tend to be? Doesn't seem too much a stretch far as most people's rationale tends to work. Maybe Trump is not necessarily racist or a bigot in the classic sense. Maybe Trump is just a despicable person, regardless who he decides to insult!

Given Trump's record, maybe he is more an "equal opportunity" creep!

Only they didn't say "Vote her out". Like the true Stalinist that the Trump base is, they chanted "Lock her up" event though she hasn't been found guilty of any crimes. Nothing like a Stalinist pig to promote locking up and deporting your political foes. 🐷

You're not following...

One example of well too many is the concern even if not "terrifying" for some. A concern, disappointing if not disgusting for those who are following.

And really you missed the all important question altogether. WHY?
