Those are the superfluous things that the right usually complains about in a president. When Trump is critiqued on specific issues, it's for a genuine reason. Continually trying to deflect blame when it is entirely warranted must be tiring.
So Baltimore isn't a cesspool full of greed and corruption at the local level ?

I’m so sick and tired that whatever looney does wrong, gets blamed on Trump.

One female, so called expert or contributor on Fox News said that Trump seems to attack every person of color.

Let’s keep it honest and when Hillary verbally attacked Trump and his voters, Trump verbally hit back and as far as I know, Hillary is white!

Liz Warren, claimed to be an Native Indian, but was lying and Trump hit back at her, after she verbally attacked him for whatever could stick and threw everything at him, and Trump hit back and she is white!

Nothing sexism, or you can blame the women of being sexist for attacking a male!

Then we have some people of color who verbally attacked and blame Trump for whatever they can come up with, and Trump hits back. Nothing racism but just words back on policies.

Right now there is huge racism, sexism, and discrimination towards all Trump supporters and voters as well as the entire Trump family. On Top of that we have anti Semitic remarks by people in Congress.

Just call it as it is!

Whatever a mental individual does, horrible crime, is for their own responsibility as well as family and friends who may have know the person was not acting “normal”.
As Harry Truman said, the buck stops here. Meaning that the President is the leader of the country and people look up to him to do just that - lead. But he doesn't lead by setting an example of working with people who have differences, he attacks, attacks, attacks. And he does so viciously and uses lots of race baiting.

All politicians are attacked, it is part of the job, but a good leader has thick skin and ignores taunts from Warren or whoever. Trump, as the President, sets the tone for the rest of the country. People now think it is OK to use vicious language. They think it is OK to be hateful. That is why he gets blamed.

The released manifesto of the cowardly shooter hasn't been verified as belonging to the white nationalist, and after taking a look at it I think it's probably more likely a leaked copy of President Stumblebum's next rally speech.

Trump is the only one with the balls to call out the problems we have and to call out people who deserve it
"Calling out problems" which you have no knowledge of, is the definition of stupid is, as stupid does. Trump is the wacky guy, you hear on the subway, or the drunk guy at the end of the bar, "calling out" stuff. All of them get their information from the same source, thin air.

Here's a little history of Trump's racist or bigoted comments.

Blaming the president for everything is a very bad habit that American voters have always had, but I think it has become worse in my lifetime. Or maybe it's the difference between expressing opinions over the internet in real time as opposed to the press (including radio/TV, etc.), which necessitates a response time lag.
I disagreed with Obama’s policies which made me in the eyes of you/libs, a racist.

Everything a liberal doesn’t like or agrees with is racism, sexism, etc.

By now it is laughable as at first it made me upset but now I know what to expect and luckily we wake up with a great President every day, better economy, and many people who never realized but now have woken up that the Democrats don’t care about them, except for election years/votes!

DACA has been forgotten but most likely will be brought up by libs, later this years!

Also, the general disrespect and disregard of the rights of others who are not white, like they are. The refusal to provide brown Puerto Rico full disaster assistance, throwing paper towels at them, hiring two guys and a truck to restore all of Puerto Rico's power equipment, etc. Trying to ban all people of a non-Christian, non-white religion from entering the country. Referring to brown/black countries as sh*thole countries, and supporters being fine with that. Putting brown children in cages, and that being seen as a good thing to many supporters. All barriers of decent and even compassionate American behavior removed. This is a known radicalization technique that's been used before.

The resistance to such radicalization techniques begins with an acknowledgement that that's what's going on, and refusal to go along with, support, approve, or listen to, anything that smacks of dehumanizing anyone, the use of disrespectful language or acts regarding groups of those not like yourself, any language or behavior that is based in hate or disapproval of "others," rather than behavior of people (that also include those like yourself). This is hard to do for people inclined to be radicalized.
Exactly.

California as location...

I’m so glad to be in Florida and don’t have to deal with high taxes and all the libs. Even getting gas for a car is way more money in CA and groceries are over priced in CA, due to liberals...

Enjoy overpaying and paying for ll the illegals over there. That’s what the left wants and can have!

We will enjoy lower taxes, same sunshine, lower gas prices (today I paid$ 2.31 per gallon), cheaper groceries, etc.

No wonder people in CA are not the happiest. They see their celebrities flying around the world in their private jets, while getting preached about green energy and the libs in CA still look up to them.

2020 is getting close. The pathetic Liberals are desperate and attaching Trump to anything and everything negative, in hopes to sway MOST of America from voting for him.
