They offer their opinion of him (in a vile way) and he offers his opinion of what they are free to do about it. That's very American.
    Your head is so far up Trump's ass you can probably taste last night's well done steak with ketchup.

    Now, you can argue that every major newspaper in the country is controlled by 'lefties' and 'socialists,' but the point is that these papers did not just throw out the word "racist" at random - there was a fair amount of debate over whether it was appropriate to use the word in this contest. Also, the Columbia Journalism Review also came out with an advisory that papers should use "racist" if they felt it was warranted.

    you may not like the media, but media outlets do have standards and rules that they follow.
    You are 100% right- they didn't throw it out there randomly. They did it with a political purpose and they no doubt discussed the talking points with each other.

    Cool. So is Nancy Pelosi. So is Joe Biden. So is Liz Warren.

    Suggesting that African-American politicians advocate for the African-American community is not racist. At all. Suggesting that people who were born here should "go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came" is definitely racist. But since you're just as vile as he is you see it as normal.

    Very intelligent and well reasoned post - also very tempered and good spirited. Now I can see why you feel have positioned yourself to be critical of Trump's intemperate words.

    And in the "you can't make it up" department - a Republican candidate has announced she will challenge AOC for her House seat. the candidate is an immigrant, who moved to the US from Jamaica. any bets on whether Trump tells her to 'go back where she came from.....?'

    I see. So we should all think in terms of color. So if someone says- "if you are white you better think in terms of white issues" it's good. Got it. Very well thought out!

    Does she love America? Yep. AOC doesn't. AOC won't condemn al Qaeda... Think it through SON.

    I love that you're worried about propriety here, and not the actual meaning of what he says. Personally, I couldn't care less about vulgarity. But I definitely care about the fact that the President of the United States is racist. I realize that we've all become desensitized to that fact to some degree, but it's important to call it out. To say it plainly. The President of the United States thinks that people of African and Latino descent are inferior human beings. And he repeatedly does things to make that a more ingrained fact of life.

    Tired of all the America bashing, mostly not justified. Now we are to the point of replacing the American flag with the Mexican flag. Ridiculous. Trump said what a lot of people, including myself, are thinking.

    The only thing I kind of enjoy about our dip**** of a President is that he makes it easy to identify the other racist assholes parading around...apparently including you.

    Name calling is one thing I dont appreciate about our President. Looks like he and you have that in common, at least.

    I think it's racist to refer to all black people as a "community". Who is the white community?

    Omar wasn't born here.

    Ooh. Then he went 1 for 4. Solid average.

    ignored my first point, I guess that's a concession.

    He didn't say any names or single anyone out. If that's what is required for the tweet to be deemed racist, I guess the news media all failed.
