Plausible deniability is what you call what Trump is doing. He provides meat for the racist crowd through his language and actions but stays just far enough from the edge so that he can deny being an actual racist. But his acts speak pretty loudly. It is obvious to anyone with half a brain.

Apparently you don't know the definition of "racist".

Of course he is. Eight years of birtherism followed by three years of angry rhetoric and (usually false) accusations tells the tale.

Racism will be an Achilles heel for Trump in 2020. If played correctly, that behavior should rally minorities to the polling booth in significant numbers. Democrats are right to use that card for all it's worth.

National Cathedral Clergy Feel Compelled to Condemn President Trump’s Rhetoric

When a President’s public statements are so racist, so divisive that the clergy of The National Cathedral feel compelled to enter the fray, you know that the occupant of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue has sunken to lows his predecessors never dreamed of.

As faith leaders who serve at Washington National Cathedral ¬– the sacred space where America gathers at moments of national significance – we feel compelled to ask: After two years of President Trump’s words and actions, when will Americans have enough?
We have come to accept a level of insult and abuse in political discourse that violates each person’s sacred identity as a child of God. We have come to accept as normal a steady stream of language and accusations coming from the highest office in the land that plays to racist elements in society.
This week, President Trump crossed another threshold. Not only did he insult a leader in the fight for racial justice and equality for all persons; not only did he savage the nations from which immigrants to this country have come; but now he has condemned the residents of an entire American city. Where will he go from here?

Make no mistake about it, words matter. And, Mr. Trump’s words are dangerous.

These words are more than a “dog-whistle.” When such violent dehumanizing words come from the President of the United States, they are a clarion call, and give cover, to white supremacists who consider people of color a sub-human “infestation” in America. They serve as a call to action from those people to keep America great by ridding it of such infestation. Violent words lead to violent actions.

When does silence become complicity? What will it take for us all to say, with one voice, that we have had enough? The question is less about the president’s sense of decency, but of ours.


No matter how frequently and fervently Trump supporters try to normalize his actions, this is not normal behavior from a President of the United States. The Cult will say that “he’s just telling like it is.” We know what they think. The election of 2020 will be decided by the other voters. Are they going to accept Donald Trump as the new normalcy?

"Interesting" is an incredibly generous characterization, IMO, but sure.
