They did not come to the rally to listen and consider new ideas, they came to gather in their mutual hate, and expected the chance to vent their hate without repercussion. And they did.

Trump is being asked to calm them, to tell them not to chant things that are clearly hateful, which there is no way he will. No way.

That will disperse his base.

He is in a no-win with this one. He HAD to come out with a statement that he wasn't responsible for what the crowd was chanting; it was too horrible not to disavow.

But next time, he won't stop it.
Of course, he won't stop. This is his appeal.

Rick Wilson nailed it.

He wrote that Trump understands his supporters, that he knows that are not looking for jobs or a drained swamp, "they’re looking for permission to be as cruel, grotesque, and vicious as he is."

"He knows they’re addicted now to the way he enables and empowers them to say and do the things they want, regardless of consequence."

His showmanship is tuned to their sensibilities, "giving them permission to blow up a society leaving them behind."

That was not ignorant either. Like I said previously, that was actually very logical. Let me explain it to you one more time. If you don't like a place, anyplace, it is logical advice that you are free to leave.

Leftists tell others this all the time. They tell people to leave California if they don't like the Leftist policies there. To leave NYC, Chicago, etc. Yet when others say the same thing to them, it all of a sudden becomes hate/ignorant speech.

Leftists = hypocrites.

So were folks bused in from somewhere else, some far more hateful place?
seems like their welcome is nothing more than blowing smoke up our azzes. Telling a Jew hating liberal who has nothing but contempt and hate for America to leave if she dont like it is, compared to this idiot, beyond the pale

It actually makes no sense. It supposes tat the person or people in question do not like America just for the sole reason that they have other opinions on how to do things than you do. It also makes no sense that in this case, three of the women are Americans who were born in America and the other woman came to this coutry when she was a child. Where are they supposed to go?

You know, when Trump was damning Obama and everything he was doing, what is Obama had said to Trump, "Love it or leave it." How do you suppose that would go gone?

I am frankly getting tired of weak minded folks saying "Love it or leave it" instead of what they really mean. "My way or the highway." There should be a lot of room in this country for folks to disagree.

No, it's ignorant. Obama is not of Arabic descent.

I spent over 10 years in Greenville, NC and happy the mayor issued a statement about the stupid chants by the crowd - after which Trump WAITED to speak. He did NOT try to move quickly. Also, it's sad that the mayor had to do this in the first place. Where ever Trump goes, he causes problems.

Unfortunately, there's video playing everywhere of that rally, and people on both sides are now causing problems. This is the problem with this president - he says divisive things and everything cascades down to people and their communities.

Now we have gas station clerks questioning people's citizenship:

Great statement by Greenville, NC mayor:

Sounds like the Mayor has TDS....better get that checked out.

That chant was awesome!

Best get used to.

I suspect this will pale in comparison to what Trump's followers will be chanting as we get closer to the election.

They are from here. His statement is pure ignorance used to gin up his base. Who said they don't like the U.S.? Trump got busted for it too. That's why he had to backtrack. Idiot.
