You can't prove it is false.

You are basically saying he can't defend himself from the left's false accusations of racism if he can't say that.
Wake up...Donald Trump’s long history of racism, from the 1970s to 2019
Trump has a long history of racist controversies.

I suppose that Demented Don will be "ordering" voters to vote for him next. Sieg Heil.

The USA has had 45 "chosen one's"
Only the mentally ill would not recognize what Trump did.

Public face is all that matters.

We can be as dismissively derisive in private, as we like; as profane, as crudely hateful, as we like. That is after all the whole point of privacy! I don't care what racist or misogynistic insults JFK or Nixon spewed in the privacy of their office, how much they yelled at their staff... even if they jumped on the table and urinated onto the carpet in the Oval Office.

What concerns me, is the public message that our leaders convey - be those leaders in political office, or CEOs, or clergymen, or whatever else. It's called being diplomatic. Diplomats throw tantrums too - in private. But in meetings, in front of the press, in the course of doing their jobs, they're diplomats.

I'd like for our leaders to be diplomats. How they scream, curse and fulminate in private, is their private business.

Y'all, please understand that President Trump was just joking. Everybody at that event knew that.


Geez, liberals, you couldn't possibly take that for real....

The Middle class was screwed by the past 3 presidents hard. Some might even call it rape. I haven't seen Trump do anything as damaging to middle class as the ACA. Nor has Trump increased the Debt by 9 trillion dollars (yet). Nor Has Trump involved us in any more civil wars. Trump sucks, but one has to put things into perspective. The guy he replaced was a war monger and spent like a drunken sailor.

Yeah I gotta say me too. Ive done ok with my investments. I cant give Trump the credit though, because I can't say he is why my investments did well.

You don't seem to be able to offer any criticisms on policy with Trump or show how he's wrong for this country.

Trump makes an obvious joke about being the chosen one, and you are having a meltdown about it. How is that good for you or good for the country. To me, your behavior is embarrassing.

You truly can't see he's making a joke here?

O RLY ?





Speaking of "embarrassing" .......

This line from the column in that link is great:

Not only is Obama not a deity who controls the earthly waters, he's not a good forecaster, either.

Conservatives referred to Obama as 'The One' because of his grandiose statements like this and his groupie fans. Obama is aloof and humorless so he wasn't joking. Trump's bragging and overstating things is supposed to be humorous.
