Sometimes it is hard to figure out how much support Trump really has. Social media is has a outsized voice but I question its influence outside of DC, NY, LA, and SF, our media outlets are fractured so ratings are a poor indicator, compare Hannity's best at approx. 3 million versus Game of Thrones average of 10 million and it requires an additional subscription.

There are very few places that give Americans an actual feel of where the country is at.

Most media is opinion, is anti-Trump, and goes to extraordinary lengths to act as an opposition political party against the WH.

What does your question have to do with Saint Ronnie talking about Africans and shoes?

The facts are the facts.

When the Republican party publicly disavows Reagan and Nixon and their sincere racism it will all be behind us. As it is, it helped the party win a lot of elections.

So far, it appears most Republicans are still infatuated with Reagan. I am sure you agree.

There is a difference between opinion and news.

News is news.

When Trump lies, that's news. What any of us think about his lies is opinion.

When Trump attacks minorities, that's news. What any of us think about his attacks is opinion.

Beyond it bringing more negative attention to a dead person that people already had negative views of when he was alive, why bring up something that was racist or potentially racist at the time the speech was said?

Trump kills innocent minorities all the time in drone strikes. Why doesn't that get condemned by the Left? Is it because Obama did it too?

Well, the national archive institute released it and we're talking about it.
