The Trump family could have returned and helped the town rise out of **** hole status. That never happened.

    Trump's grandfather was drafted to serve in the German army as all young men were at the time. His country needed him but Trump's grandfather left Germany and denied service to his country. Fred Trump never served his country and we all know about Cadet Bone spurs. Ironic, innit?
    And this is a good anti-Trump post... you should teach some of these loons how you do it so concisely and well...

    I think AOC should be allowed to stay but should probably go back to bartending. ET has got to go! I don't even know who this 4th member of the suicide squad is. Talib is a potty mouth so I think just publicly washing her mouth out with soap seems reasonable. None of them should be in government. This has been a complete disaster. I believe Nancy Pelosi would agree with me.

    Fine... four congresswomen.
    So... despite him knowing now (if he didn't know) that those 3 Congresswomen were born in America, why is he continuing to defend his tweets about telling them to go back to their countries?

    Even if it was singular for one person it would still be racist.

    See other posts for explanation of why.

    Red Herring... and because he is conflating their lineage with were they were born.

    Not sure how much more of this I c an take... and do you know why it is a Red Herring?

    That is a debate fail. You lose.

    What a debater does not do is argue a point and when asked a question tell their opponent to look somewhere else for an answer.

    You and Lefty... peas in a pod.

    "The red herring is as much a debate tactic as it is a logical fallacy. It is a fallacy of distraction, and is committed when a listener attempts to divert an arguer from his argument by introducing another topic. This can be one of the most frustrating, and effective, fallacies to observe."

    Logical Fallacies >> Red Herring

    We were talking about racism and now you are talking about defending his Tweets... pretty simple.

    No, three Congresswomen, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York, Rashida Tlaib of Michigan and Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts were all born in the US. Ilan Omar of Minnesota is the only one of the four not born in the US. She was born in Somalia and her parents moved to the US when she was 8 years old. She's a naturalized citizen and received her citizenship even before Melania Trump received hers.

    Ayanna Pressley is a black woman. OAC is a Puerto Rican. Rashida Tlaib was born to parents from Palestine and she's Muslim. Ilan Omar is black, from Somalia and a Muslim.
