    Trump's Racism Exposed

    Bill Kristol, no liberal is he, points to an interesting slip.

    Trump: "I don't believe the four Congresswomen are capable of loving our country." "Are capable" is the tell. This isn't garden-variety (if deplorable) partisan demagoguery. This is racial and religious bigotry. For what characteristics make them incapable of loving our country?

    Bill Kristol
    Maybe someone who understands the mind of the Donald can explain this away.

    Wow, didn't take long for the alleged "love it or leave it" to turn into "these 4 bitches aren't capable of loving it so they need to be sent packing". Trump's verbal porn for racists has to keep getting more and more extreme otherwise it won't produce the same high.

    It's hard to take someone who's been bashing America and attacking the Constitution for years seriously. Trump really hates this country and everything it stands for, which is why he's trying to change it into his image.

    he needs them to show up and vote for him, so he throws them candy. if he disavows racism in any genuine way (which he can't, as he is a racist himself,) he loses votes that he won't make up on the other side. those among his base who might not be racists will overlook his racism, as he pisses off the libs, and that's what's important.

    You guys are out of your minds. TDS has gone from lunacy to just plain idiocy.

    Trump's strategy is to characterize his political opponents as hating the motherland. It's fascism 101.

    I think it would be an impossible task to explain anything to triggered liberal progressives.

    Should people expect liberals to be commanded to take "good morning" as a racist tell? Good? You mean Good as in good for white people...........

    How about when ordering coffee? Will "just Black" be a tell for something more evil?

    Not sure why settling Mars is considered such a stretch.

    Clearly there are people living there already.

    Trump can't point out single harmful thing, because those women are against corruption and trying to make something meaningful and good. Trump is just an hate thrower and his base is swallowing all of it. If you're against those women you should think twice if you're ready to dump everything what they're saying / doing - be careful what you count as trash. I know you can say things like "they are anti-american", but if everything what these woman presents is bad what it mean?

    Yep, Republicans are loyal. He doesn't lose many Republicans by being nativist or racist or Islamaphobic. He can pick up some independents or people who never vote who are excited by his arguments.

    Most of his base don't even know who these women are or what they said or did.

    His handlers have been trying to get him to temper his overt racism and stick to dog whistles like: Love it or leave it, communists, patriots, UnAmrerican, etc.

    By midday Monday, the Republican battle to minimize the damage was unfolding on two fronts. The first was an effort to get Trump to shift his message, without admitting a mistake. The goal, said one senior White House aide, was to “get the message back to a place where we could defend the president.”

    The idea was to argue that the four congresswomen hated America and were welcome to leave for that reason. There were other lines of attack as well...

    I see that is working out well.
