No matter how damage he does some how it will end up being the fault of the left.
Sadly, I believe you are correct.

As long as Trump thinks he's personally "winning" he doesn't care if he leaves the entire country in a smoldering ruin.

"Freedom and liberty" means the freedom to worship God and live your life by the enforced social norms, but that freedom is not extended to anyone else. It's that simple.
Don't forget the additional meaning of being not just a good American, but apparently what some consider the BEST American: groping women and bragging about it, mocking people with disabilities, and hating war heroes posthumously.

Evidently, these are sought after qualities that make this guy a hero and the best choice to lead the free world.



What does this FF have to do to prove to some of y'all how horrible he is- burn puppies?

i'm making the point that trump never said what that poster claimed he said.



abandon a chant that he never chanted?

well, alrighty then.
If your child used that same statement in a classroom he would be disciplined but this is the president so he can get away with it. Some real gymnastics to explain this one.

Imagine someone criticizing our stellar ME policies, that sure is grounds for deportation.

It is clear he did not shut it down last night, didn't dial it back at all.

The first tweet was from a GOP North Carolina guy who said he was uncomfortable and that while he objected to the policies of Omar - this kind of behavior is not acceptable.

That was a sign that there would be some walking back on this one.

It is too bad Trump is not quick enough to have realized that last night.
He didn't create the culture, he's simply emboldened it and brought them out of the shadows. He's the result of the culture.

I think most of us conservatives would love to have an America hating, anti-Semitic, Muslim extremist go back to her country. What normal person wouldn't?
Maybe he should take a page from McCain's playbook on how to control the rabid racism in your base:

McCain Counters Obama 'Arab' Question - YouTube

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jrnRU3ocIH4

Even from the grave, McCain shows Trump up for ineffective leader he is.

I guarantee you that will be played over and over because most Americans find it repulsive.
By shrieking racism, you just lost the argument.
