    Trump's comments were racist - everyone heard it. Hiding behind the old "but, but, the media!" won't spin his comments away.
    Here's the problem just because YOU and the media say his tweet is racist, does not mean, A the man is racist and B. it does not mean others will find his tweet racist. You seem to think the racist card is this magical "you win card". News flash it has been over used and its effectiveness is suspect at best. C. a lot of immigrants, you know the real kind who came through the front door and jumped through the hoops and got their citizenship, amazingly a lot of them agree with Trump's sentiment in his tweet. Hmm I wonder why that is?

    We don't have to. The tweets are loud and clear with racist tropes and you know it. Those tweets are going to be used in campaign ads all across the country, and people are not going to be talking about AOC, they're going to be talking about the obvious racist statements made by the president.

    Now you're just repeating FOX talking points. Just saying something you'd like to believe to be true aloud, doesn't make it true. This isn't the Wizard of Oz, dude.

    Get back to me in two weeks when the polls start to show another shift. By that, I mean the same polls that correctly predicted the midterms and other races - I know you're going to bring up 2016.

    Wrong again. I dont think the tweets are racist, and neither do more than a few people, which makes YOUR thesis wrong.

    Why dont we wait for the real poll, the election and we will know one way or another whether people think the Donald is racist and whether the real immigrants are on your side. Much easier and far more clear dont you think? I am a patient guy. I can wait.

    By the way as a side note the Republicans are starting to run ad's already. Ohh I just cant wait for the mud to fly. Its gona be fun on bun.

    Dude, do you really think if you just keep repeating what you want to be true that it will become true? If you really think "only a few people" found Trump's comments racist, you truly are living on another planet.

    Only for his shrinking base.
    Independents are increasingly growing weary of his nine year old antics, both on social media and on television.
    He has successfully chewed up every moral and political value conservatives ever embraced, and posted a long string of fake manufactured reality TV scripts that look like a crisis only to turn out to be a photo op so that he can assume the APPEARANCE of having fixed it.

    To a growing number of independents Trump is beginning to look like an arsonist posing as a decorated firefighter.
    The only people pushing the Athenian Straw Man Nonexistent Threat of Slippery Slope Windyfoggery (ASMNSSW) RE DEMOCRACY are people who have a misunderstanding/problem or hatred of democracy. (See AUTHORITARIANS)

    I see what you did there, the old twist and shout. I said and I quote

    (Post 43 for those interested in the full quote) One of two things have occurred, A) you misread the comment, or B) you deliberately misrepresented it. I wonder which it is?

    Not really. Pelosi has spent months and was pretty successful to push those 3 woman to the background as they have caused here massive headaches and have bad polling
    numbers attached to them. They are not liked and they are not popular.

    She was being successful in getting them into the background and drowned out by other things.
    now they are back in the forefront.
