    I don’t think winning was the point when he retrieved the microphone from that misguided woman.

    He'll do what he always does:

    1. incite hatred,
    2. bask in in it,
    3. deny it when the backlash comes,
    4. rinse and repeat.

    We saw this all through his last campaign. He won't change.

    Then Trump should own it, instead of pussing out. What a limp-wristed post!

    Being a man of integrity was the point of McCain taking the microphone away and disavowing the sentiment that woman was spewing. It's a sad reflection on the country if voters punish that, and our politicians instead of discouraging that kind of offensive nonsense, encourage it for purposes of winning an election, and it works.

    I disagree with it I felt a little bit badly about it I was not happy with it, I disagree with it
    President Donald Trump
    Really? He stood there for 13 seconds and let them chant and when they stopped he said nothing. He is a liar.

    The base likes it. I think it will persist. Lock her up is getting kind of lame so they need something new. They can't wait till the Democrats actually have a nominee. The hate is too strong.

    They didn't deserve McCain. He was way too good for them.

    We saw this all through his last campaign. He won't change.
    To return to my earlier point, as predicted, with a few days' history behind us, we see Trump has come full circle and done what he always does and it is exactly what I outlined earlier: says something racist, enjoys its circulation, denies it when it backfires, then re-embraces the slur to keep the base on side and then does it all over again next week.

    1. incite hatred
    So we've all seen how he called for women of color to 'go home' for a few days.

    2. bask in in it
    Trump undeniably enjoys the 'send her back chants' at the rally in this video. Pointedly he does not walk it back or discourage the crowd.

    3. deny it when the backlash comes
    For the next day or so he tried to distance himself from the chants, even though we have him basking in it on tape

    4. rinse and repeat
    He now stands by his original racism, and will likely repeat at the next rally, or even before than on Twitter.

    the only times he didn't do this was when he said something vile (Pocahontas springs to mind) and just stuck with it the whole way through regardless. Otherwise this has been his MO every time he went too far and we will see it time and again in the months to come.

    I do love the revisionist history some seem to have with McCain. Democrats were saying the exact same thing about McCain that they say about Trump now.
