    Trump says he tried to stop ‘send her back’ chant — video shows he was silent for 13 seconds

    Trump says he tried to stop ‘send her back’ chant — video shows he was silent for 13 seconds - National | Globalnews.ca

    U.S. President Donald Trump on Thursday chided his supporters who chanted “send her back” when he questioned the loyalty of a Somali-born congresswoman, joining widespread criticism of the campaign crowd’s cry and his Republican allies worried about political blowback from the angry scene.
    Now Trump is saying that making comments like "send her back" is wrong. So he's essentially saying the members of his base at the rally are racists. And he's lying to do it.

    Trump is throwing all his supporters who defended his well known racist trope of "go back where you came from" under the bus, to protect his political image.

    How do Trump supporters feel about the POTUS apparently calling you racists? How do you feel about him lying to do it, saying he was trying to stop the chant so he act like the anti-racist?

    Trump is a sociopathic liar of the worst sort. This is just the latest example of his deceit.

    He kinda said the same thing about "lock her up" when it first started. Then he embraced it. I hope he does the same with this one.

    He's a ****ing liar. And Kevin McCarthy doubled down on his lie.

    I love how Trump threw his supporters under the bus. But it's what they deserve. They hitched their carts to a piece of garbage. They deserve the garbage he tosses at them.
    It's disgraceful. I'm going to maybe and I'm looking at it very seriously. We're doing some other things that you probably noticed like some of the very important things that we're doing now. But we're looking at it very seriously because you can't do that. - President Donald J. Trump

    True, but this time he's really throwing his base under the bus. Do you think his base will be fine with Trump apparently calling them racists to protect his own hide?

    From now on, when there's a discussion with a Trump supporter about racism, not only does Trump's campaign strategy tell us he thinks his base is largely composed of racists, but Trump has essentially come out and said they were behaving like racists.

    How do you deny you're a racist when even the guy you support has said that's what you are?

    I think they will be. His supporters are no different than Jim Jones' supporters were. Trump is Father. He can do no wrong. Even if he demands sex with their daughters they will obey.

    Hmmmmm, looks like you could be correct. So far they appear to be burying their collective heads in the sand and pretending it never happened.

    He also first stated he didn't approve of the "lock her up" chants, and we all know those went away, never to be seen or heard again.
