UNDER FIRE: President Trump and The Squad

Updated on July 17, 2019
This says it all
This says it all
The Squad
The Squad

Both Trump and those in the "Squad" of four colored congresswomen are in a high stakes war over the racist (or not so racist) comments Trump made about them. Kelly Ann Conway perhaps showed the real frustration for such comments in her rant about how many Americans are sick and tired of the dissing of America and its values. Perhaps Trump was venting as he usually does, and as a man from a different generation, he cannot accept that America is turning color, where whites are 45% and the remaining population is of color. Perhaps, that is what his slogan yearns for, back to a time when whites comprised of 75% of America.

Is it Racism?

But, on it's face, was Trump's comments pure racism or also mixed in with frustration that the four women obviously hate him, his policies, his looks, and everything Trump. He no doubt feels the same for the same reasons. If even one of the Squad was a white, would Trump's comment about going back to their past country elicited the same racist news coverage, or, would it change from "racist" to an attack on women?

Most of Trump's supporters feel he is not racist and that it is not racist to say, "Go back to your home country if you don't like the USA". Had the women been white would Trump use the same line? Maybe. I mean, we all came from different countries, well, at least most of us. Why is it an insult to say what Trump said, anyway? Many think that, America is not perfect. Why is it racist to call a country a "shithole" when comparing it to the USA? Sometimes, the truth does hurt because it IS the reality. Many countries on the globe are places any American would have issues with. One does not appreciate America until they live or visit outside the USA. I personally know this and if Trump wants to use that term to describe his impressions, fine. The poverty and living conditions in some of the Third world is simply an eye opener.

It's Personal

If Trump knowingly went after the Squad for their skin color and their positions on American culture and policy (this is probably the most likely reason), Trump is racist. The Squad represents a far left agenda on a variety of issues, many that most undeclared or middle road voters do not agree with. They, at times, bring Trump's ire to the boiling point with their comments and insults. Trump's skin is paper thin and he cannot stand being attacked. The Squad truly pushes him to the limit.

For those on the far left, the Squad are heroines. They are taking the orange menace on and are standing up to a bully, something few Republicans are still not willing to do. They are afraid that Trump will attack them.

The situation will only to continue to disintegrate with Congress starting an impeachment inquiry. Trump is probably astounded about the uproar from his comments but could care less.

He loves this chaos. He loves the media. He is never to be blamed for he can do no wrong. And remember, he is God's ambassador to make America Great Again. LOL.

      "Is it Racism?

      But, on it's face, was Trump's comments pure racism

      B:

      Now you are phrasing this like the attorney asking the defendant, " Do you still beat your wife?"

      How would you define pure racism, and how would you prove it against President Trump?

      -------------------------------

      or also mixed in with frustration

      B:

      So how do you mix frustration with "pure" racism?

      -------------------------------

      that the four women obviously hate him

      B:

      Is that the total picture?

      Is that President Trump taking them personally?

      ------------------------------

      , his policies, his looks, and everything Trump

      B:

      His looks and everything Trump would be racist on their part.

      Like when they said that people of color don't agree with them, to basically shutup, among the many things that they have said.

      ------------------------------

      . He no doubt feels the same for the same reasons.

      B:

      no doubt is your guess, your opinion and biased.

      What same reasons?

      ---------------------------

      If even one of the Squad was a white, would Trump's comment about going back to their past country

      B:

      What his full statement and context is that if anyone doesn't like AMERICA then they are free to stay or leave. And that would probably apply to all the white Hollywood starts that said they would leave the country but they are still here.

      He told Omar she should go back to her country, fix their problems and come BACK to the US to fix the problems she has here.

      -----------------------------

      elicited the same racist news coverage, or, would it change from "racist" to an attack on women?"

      B:

      The media has been already biased against Trump since even before he entered the campaign.

      Racist was the opinion of the press, but there was no mention of racism in Trump's statement.

      It was the squad that brings up the color, not Trump. So, the squad is racist not Trump. They are also racist against Jews, and white people. Calling or eluding that the country is run by the white supremacists is racist.

      Racism just don't cut one way, it is bilateral.

      President Trump didn't like what they said about America, Americans and that is why he made his statements.

      The squad even called Nancy Pelosi a racist.

      So if you believe the squad, then you also must believe that Nancy Pelosi, the democrat speaker of their House is a Racist.

      We all are worried. Sometimes I really can’t sleep thinking about that mom whose son was taken away from her and given to an American couple. I can’t think about it, because I have kids. Or that video of the dad and son when they were reunited......

      It just kills something inside.

      And honestly, the only politician who seems to get it is Biden. And Weld. They get the human impact of the cruelty that is trump.

      As hard as it is, the truth does hurt. Trump is nowhere on the same level of Hitler, of course, but within his base of diehards, he is revered just like Hitler was and what he stood for. Just like in Germany long ago, many, not only jews, were silently worried about Hitler's impact as he came to power. This is where the democrats are today. Of course, many are too liberal.

      Is denseness a trumpian trait? I support their feelings about trump and share them. I do not support all of their policies. U could just as easily have said,” so you don’t support them”, and been just as wrong.

      Perrya, your analysis is spot on. They just refuse to see it. When Stalin was doing his purges of the intellectuals, Solzhenitsyn was one of them. He said he wanted to scream out at people, “Cant you see what’s going on?!?””......But they pretended not to know. Or thought it was safer to keep their mouths shut.

      Trump’s got nothing to lose. When the presidency is over, so is his life. And he’s a vindictive person. Hell burn it all down for revenge. He throws everyone under the bus to protect himself.

      Eventually, they will get sick of it.

      And if the trump party succeeds in taking away the ACA, social security and Medicaid, maybe then they will care, because it will hurt them or their families.

      This inability to put themselves in other’s shoes is why we get a bum like trump, imo. As Jennifer whatshername said about Brad Pitt, “the compassion chip is missing.”

      What would a person have to say for you to consider the remark to be racist?

      What would a person have to say or do for you to judge them to be a racist?

      This question is particularly for those who don't think Trump has made racist remarks or is a racist. I am just curious about where you would draw the line.

      Or is all it takes, is someone from the left to CALL Trump a Racist. No proof, No facts just their idea?

      Was George Wallace racist? Strom Thurmond? Paula Deen?

      "For many voters, Trump is the new word for swastika and what that meant during Hitler's time.

      B:

      What voters?

      Are you one of these voters?

      Can you identify these voters?

      What you have done is made a baseless biased opinion, and then deflected it so it is some else, "many voters".

      Where is the connection between swastika and Hitler and President Trump?

      You haven't made one, you just eluded to one, using a straw man, "many voters".

      How many is many? Many is a vague, ambiguous and meaningless term as used here.

      ---------------------------------

      Those who support trump are of similar thought regarding how they want a return to a majority white America like it was in the 60's and further back. They do not like having people of color in power making decisions over white people.

      B:

      Another rant, another baseless opinion, another bias against the president. The 50s and 60s was the good times for America, and starting in the 1970s the country went into a decline culminating into a dot com bubble burst in the 1990s and then the economy hit bottom in 2008. The economic recovery only rewarded the companies that not only caused the crash, but gave their executives 7 figure bonuses as key employees. What a joke, these executive bankrupt their companies, and then want to be handsomely rewarded. And rewarded they were, while the people that were victims of their misdeeds received zero help form the government. They lost their homes, their jobs and their livelihood. The banks that were saved by the government didn't lend anyone any of their money, not even other banks. Short sales by owners were delayed even on cash deals. The Federal Reserve was buying $40 billion of bad derivatives a month. The IRS even taxed the victims when the banks forgave them on their home equity loans.

      The recovery was very slow.

      From the 70s we were in one war after another, and we didn't win. It cost lives and lots of money. In 2016, the nation was once again replicating the race riots of the past, In the 1980s the US lost their place in the auto manufacturing in the world, followed by the loss of the Detroit to foreign cars. The list goes on.

      So why wouldn't everyone like to go back to that prosperity.

      -----------------------------------

      That is why they chant, Make America great again. These people do not see how similar the situation in the 1930's in Germany and rise of Hitler are similar to Trump's rhetoric. Trump rallies are just rallies of hate against liberalism and race. They love the feel of power such a rally gives, just like the nazis when Hitler gave speeches against jew and non-white in his huge rallies. Trump supporters will disagree, but history is repeating."

      B: How are they against anything especially liberalism and race. 2016, it was Obama who divided the nation by race. He did nothing about the Liberalism caused riots, and the attack on the police. Did nothing againstt ANTIFA. He did nothing to unite the nation.

      Trump and his rallies were about uniting the nation, and bringing back to America what was lost from the 70s to 2016.

      How is history repeating.

      You keep making these baseless biased opinionated, vague and ambiguous statements that have no foundation other than a rant.

      “Rabbi Avi Olitzky of Beth El Synagogue in Minneapolis, Minnesota, called chants of "send her home" at the president’s rally Wednesday night in Greenville, North Carolina, “terrifying."

      In an interview on ABC News Live’s “The Briefing Room,” Rabbi Olitzky told MaryAlice Parks he can’t “sit or stand silently while our sitting president issues such racist rhetoric.”

      Olitzky went on to compare what he saw at the North Carolina rally to some of history’s darkest hours.

      "This is a very eerie wave of similar situations in history, be that Nazi Germany or elsewhere," he said, adding that people don’t seem afraid to be “publicly hateful and publicly loud.”

      The rabbi called on all political leaders to stop using “the Jewish community as a political football.”

The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”

      It’s racist and Islamophobic. Tea party always has been. Trump party is worse.

      First black president is forced to produce his birth certificate......for trump. He’s believed to be a Muslim, to this day, by the tea party mob. Black and Muslim, double whammy.

      His wife is called “a gorilla in heels”.

      Melania can do porn pics, no problem. Michelle shows arms, she’s a slut.

      Ted Cruz was born in Canada. How come trump never told him to go back to Canada?

      The 4 women he told to leave all happen to be non white, and 2 are Muslim.....no surprise there.

      Trump complained endlessly when Obama was president. Shouldn’t he have left?

      Why can white people complain and get to stay? Non white muslims must leave?

      The one woman he set his mob on who wasn’t born here is black and a Muslim, who is now a target, bang bang.

      Telling black people to go back to Africa is a tradition In America. Last I looked, Somalia is in Africa.

      This tradition also includes

      Mexicans

      Italians

      Irish

      And Slavs, like me.

      So who in hell are the pure Americans who can tell everyone else to leave?

      White and Christian, that’s who. And you all better check yourselves before you wreck yourselves.

      All I read on here from the left is baseless accusations. They think they can just call anything they want racist. But that doesn't make it racist, it does make them racist.

      Do you see any facts, evidence or foundation for their calls of racism here?

      Take the squad, Pelosi clan, and President Trump.

      All they do is make his statements into racism, but they don't discuss what the squad was doing that is wrong. There are two sides here, but the left and the media only focus on President Trump. Both sides need to be investigated, not just President Trump.

      The facts show that the squad and not President Trump brought up color. But they had no basis to bring it up, and they used it as a political advantage to say they are the victims, but they have no evidence to support it.

      4 hours ago from Placentia California

      Trump holds a rally yesterday in North Carolina. As soon as he starts putting down Omar, the crowd starts chanting "send her back." Trump has a smirk on his face and lets it go on.

      Today he says he disagrees with the chant and when asked why he didn't stop it? He says I didn't start it and you will have to ask the people in the rally. Just like lock her up and Russia are you listening?

      This is typical Trump behavior. He starts making disparaging remarks. The crowd buys into them and then after it is over, he lies and says he didn't have anything to do with it and blames others for it. Can't you see this man is playing all of us for his own benefit. How can you deal with a president that is constantly lying, exaggerating, and self aggrandizing. I have zero trust in him.

      Brad: As far as my ranting goes, that is just a way for you to comment without having anything to say. You are counter-punching just like Trump. Let's face it, you don't know what to do because Trump is getting into more trouble every time he opens his mouth or his tweeter. Trump is afraid of those four women. The only way he know how to combat them is by lying and false accusations, and telling the world they hate America. Just like you do to me and other people on the left.

      Again, another baseless statement that you consider a fact. If you loved America you would be helping President Trump instead of spending three years trying to turn everything that he does into something criminal or impeachable. You are a hammer and everything Trump is a nail for you.

      You are AINO.

      --------------------------------------

      You know it and Trump knows it.

      B:

      You are delusional, get help.

      -------------------------------------

      You conflate our form of love for the country and patriotism with hate and you want us to leave. Who gave you and Trump the right to tell people to leave, just because he lies about what they said.

      B:

      Freedom of Speech.

      And once again, you don't have the facts right. Your statement is false.

      ------------------------------------

      But because they have a different agenda than he does, he says they hate America.

      B:

      I have explained to you several times the details of their agenda, and you ignore it, and continue to make this baseless, vague, ambiguous and no foundation statement.

      You haven't even tried to list what it is they are doing?

      -----------------------------------

      That is nothing more than a campaign ploy that he is using, but the sad part is it worked last time, and God forbid if it works this time.

      B:

      Now you believe in God?

      What worked was the Mueller BS investigation to get the House back to the democrats. For three years the left has fabricated and created investigations, and accusations from insanity, to racism all without any facts. But they for political advantage will keep repeating their lies until someone believes them.

      -----------------------------------

      I don't like Trump. He frightens me by all of his lying, bragging, racism, and where he can take this country down the wrong path

      B:

      So don't vote for him.

      The lying as I mention is a fabrication of the left and their media.

      The only racism is those on the left that keep accusing people of racism. And the squad are the biggest racists of them all.

      He hasn't taken a wrong path, and you should be rooting for the country and not your political party.

      ----------------------------------

      That does not make me unAmerican or unpatriotic. It makes concerned about where he is taking this country. He is a demagogue who is dividing this country for his own benefit.

      B:

      Yes that is exactly what it makes you. An AINO, an anti American, and that is not patriotic.

      Your focus and that of the democrats is on illegal aliens and what does that do for America and Americans? Puts them in debt.

      The country was already divided by Obama, don't you remember the riots? And 3 years of resisting the president and calling him names, and making baseless accusations unites the country how. The democrats are dividing the country just like they did that caused the Civil War.

      --------------------------------------

      You don't even have to comment, because I know what your comments are going to be.

      B:

      But I like to comment so I can show you how meaningless are your rants, and lack of patriotism.

      Why did the squad call Pelosi a racist?

      Not all Israelis are good people, any more than all Americans are good.

      I don’t agree with your line of thinking. I don’t think it’s grand that Israel “provides” them things on their own land!

      I’m positive they would rather have their freedom and provide for themselves.

      But that won’t happen with Netanyahu, trump and aipac. We give Israel lots of money and weaponry to use against Palestinians.

      I have a right to object to the use of my tax dollars to do it.

      And I would say the violence aimed at Israel PALES in comparison to the barbarity they dish out to the Palestinians.

      Penning people in cages happens there, too. As does arresting and torturing young boys and shooting on sight. Enough of denial. If you can’t handle the truth of what America sides with, that’s not my problem.

      Why don’t you go to Gaza, then get back to me.

      Leslie, I suggest you go to Israel and visit the West Bank. Things are not as they are portrayed in this article. That is where Bethlehem is located. You will see all type of high-end shops, nice cars, expensive restaurants, beautiful houses. Speak with some actual Palestinians. They are more afraid of their own leaders than they are Israeli soldiers. I hope you realize NO Israeli citizen is permitted into the West Bank BUT the Palestinians go to Israel daily to work, socialize and more. The article you provided is so very biased. It talks about what the Palestinians call "Nakba" or the exodus of 700,000 Palestinians in 1948. It fails to mention the 850,000 Jews that were forced to leave Arab countries. Many had lived there for centuries.

      https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jewish_exodus_from_A...

      You have no idea of the stabbings, stealing, rock throwing, bombing and more committed by many Palestinians. So, if they are in an Israeli prison, I believe there is a good reason.

      You ignore all of the things Israel provides Palestinians. Free medical care as well as free training of Palestinian doctors is just part of it. A Palestinian told me if he or his family gets sick, they go to Israel for treatment.

      So, I say visit there and then make up your mind. The Israelis are good people.

      Trump holds a rally yesterday in North Carolina. As soon as he starts putting down Omar, the crowd starts chanting "send her back." Trump has a smirk on his face and lets it go on.

      Today he says he disagrees with the chant and when asked why he didn't stop it? He says I didn't start it and you will have to ask the people in the rally. Just like lock her up and Russia are you listening?

      This is typical Trump behavior. He starts making disparaging remarks. The crowd buys into them and then after it is over, he lies and says he didn't have anything to do with it and blames others for it. Can't you see this man is playing all of us for his own benefit. How can you deal with a president that is constantly lying, exaggerating, and self aggrandizing. I have zero trust in him.

      Brad: As far as my ranting goes, that is just a way for you to comment without having anything to say. You are counter-punching just like Trump. Let's face it, you don't know what to do because Trump is getting into more trouble every time he opens his mouth or his tweeter. Trump is afraid of those four women. The only way he know how to combat them is by lying and false accusations, and telling the world they hate America. Just like you do to me and other people on the left.

      I will tell you once again. People can love America and be patriotic without loving Trump and that is a fact. You know it and Trump knows it.

      An American female Liberal living in Somalia. THAT would be worth watching.

      "I recently learned of a poll showing the worst places in the world to be a woman. To my surprise, Somalia was ranked 5th. For me, the situation of women in Somalia stands as the worst in the world.

      "Mogadishu is a living hell for women struggling to feed their children amid war, drought, famine and utter devastation. No matter how hard I try to describe the situation, you could never imagine the reality on the ground. Indeed, nothing could have prepared me for the destitution and destruction that I saw when I returned to Somalia's capital last year."

      For the record, " Trump never said send her back", and he just moved on with his speech but the left wants him to have the job of policing a crowd. He didn't encourage them, and it was a small group.

      In contrast the left not only doesn't tell their people to stop, they encourage them to action. Like the recent storming of an ICE facility in Colorado where the hoisted the flag of Mexico, and flew the American Flag upside down. How did the democrat party react to it?

      I don't know why she wouldn't accept the challenge. She must believe this place is terrible compared to Somalia. So, I'd like to hear from her when she comes back to learn about her success.

      It's like defining porn. You know it when you see it and hear it. And it is out there for the entire world to see and hear. I don't care whether he mentioned their color or not.

      Quoting a SCOTUS justice, but losing the context. This is nothing like porn.

      Whether you care or not that color wasn't mentioned is not important, or relevant.

      B:

      The fact, and facts are more important that what you care about, is that Trump was commenting on what 4 congressional representative had to say thrashing America, Americans, Legal Immigrants, ALL White people and even people of color that don't agree with them. They also made antisemitism statements about Israel and Jews. As well as racist remarks about White people.

      Why do you ignore that which is factual and documented in the speeches, where you don't have to substitute opinions or guess?

      -----------------------------------------

      All you have to do is look at them and see they are not white. And no that does not make me racist. It's friggin common sense.

      It is the left that tries to make President Trump as a racist. When the left takes everything that the president does, says he will do, and even suggests that he might do and finds something wrong with it, then the onus is on the left. They not the right are creating this false narrative against the President.

      This has been the left agenda since the campaign, and it has only intensified as it doesn't get traction.

      You are OK with Hillary calling anyone that wouldn't vote for her, as deplorables.

      Of course, now that Melania stays with a cheater, it also is ok. She’s not an enabler, oh no. And she calls all the women liars.....but she’s not a horrible person like Hillary.

      And I had to laugh....one of the Rightwingers derided me for my “attention seeking porn avatar”....it’s Melania Trump!

      Porn model, probably escort model....for the rich and famous.

      And to think how outraged they were that Michelle Obama showed her arms.

      The standards for a president are strange. Practically all of them have been rumored to have other women on the side, and apparently aren’t vetted!

      You see, from my point of view, I think Obama improved America, and now trump is ruining it again .

      And no, I’m not for the squad’s issues of forced green, forced Medicare, forced free college, forced anything. You should know this in my opposition to forced birth, and forced Christianity!

      I’m for Biden’s plan of strengthening the ACA, and adding a public option.

      I think college should be affordable, only free if you need it free. I’m all for green energy, but a gradual phasing in.

      However, I agree completely with the squad that trump is a racist, a bully, a mean nasty pig and needs to be impeached.

      I also agree that we should not take his bait, because he knows his crap divides us and makes us hate one another.

      But there it is. Conservatives have been telling us we hate America and should leave since hw bush.

      They seem to think they have divine right to rule in all aspects of life. Certainly you don’t think we will comply.

      And since you hated Obama, why didn’t you leave?

Trump continues to use the squad saying all of the Dem party is like them, far to the right- that is a lie. Omar did say many things that show her disdain for US policy and anti-Israeli, some may say anti-white. She does not represent many americans outside her own district filled with refugees from Somalia. Cortez is Puerto Rican-American and Trump belittles her in stupid subtle ways like having two last names. Why? Many white people have two last names, especially women. Trump is from a racist type background and generation, where, Italians were called a Wop, Mexicans were called "spicks". It is in his nature and character.

      Mike,

      I'll keep it very brief, those who accept, agree with, tolerate etc. a voice like Omar having any say in America's direction I have serious issues with.

      She makes all of Trump's faux-pas and decades ago quotes that then were acceptable, but today are considered racist nothing in comparison.

      So long as it appears the direction the Democrats are going is hard left towards unsustainable Green New Deal, Medicare for all including all non-Americans, etc. and so long as they champion rather than shut out voices like Omar, they are not a party I will support and so the alternative is Trump, by far the lesser of two evils.

      I think it's interesting how nobody includes the entire quote. It had nothing to do with race. President Donald Trump's tweet was about Omar complaining about the United States. She does this often.

      He suggested she go back to Somalia, fix their problems, THEN come back and tell us how she did it.

      If her intellect is so great and she can do so much better than the United States, use that intellect of hers to go fix the problems of Somalia and then come back to put your tremendous intellect on display.

      I want to see her try. If she succeeds and comes back, she would be worth listening to how she did it.

      "Trump criticized each of the women by name and gave lengthy descriptions of what he said were anti-Semitic and anti-American sentiments. He also mocked Ocasio-Cortez for using two names, a common practice among Latinas, insisting he would only refer to her as “Cortez.”

      “They said, ‘That’s not her name, Sir,” Trump told the crowd. “I said, ‘No, no I don’t have time to go with three different names.’ We’ll call her ‘Cortez.’”

      Liberals are “always telling us how to run” the country, he said. “If they don’t love it, tell them to leave it.”"

      B:

      Once again, it is the squad that keeps bringing up their color, not President Trump.

      Do you agree with what the Squad has said of America, Americans, and the racism against ALL whites. Omar continues to speak about her hate for America, and as a House of Rep she is not upholding her oath.

      Trump told the truth about these congresswomen and you and the media only focus on their color, which is why they keep bring it up. And they even say that a brown or a black voice that doesn't support them shouldn't be heard.

      These are congresswomen, and as the left criticizes Trump, why shouldn't he criticized them about what they are doing in congress?

      Once again, focus on what these 4 do and say, and not on their color. Trump didn't bring it up, and why should color have any protection against the Anti America, Anti American, Anti White, and Anti Jewish agenda. Is this why they were elected to congress, is this who you want to represent the people and America?

      I would like to see facts, evidenced and not just biased baseless opinions on them.

      You and the left won't support even $5 Billion for a border wall on a $4.4 Trillion budget, but are willing to kill the US economy to have a $96 Trillion free medicare for the country.

      Does anyone on the left know arithmetic?

      You didn't answer my question which real now, not some hypothetical.

      So you are a socialist and you support the squad and their anti American rhetoric.

      I now pronounce you as anti American anti America AINOs.

      You are the squad!

      Brad: Trump is a racist. If you support him, you are a racist as well. You just may not be willing to admit it. What are the color of those four women?

      I already gave you my answer. It's too early for me to have strong feelings about any of the candidates at this time. Ask me to answer again O.K....You are just wasting your time.

      Trump is dividing this country so that he can get re-elected. He needs the votes from the electoral college states and he is playing to the fears of those people in those states. He is framing the democratic candidates as being evil and unAmerican. That's why he just had a rally in North Carolina and had the people chanting "send her back." To where Africa?

      If he really cared about America, he would not be dividing the country; he would be uniting it. All he cares about is getting 270 electoral college votes and he will do anything to get those votes, including lying and slander of those he has contempt for.

      Ken: Being a socialist does not mean being a communist. People are making excuses for Trump's behavior because they think that he has done wonderful things for this country, but I don't see it that way. He is holding the GOP senate hostage. They are afraid to say anything against him because he will make it tough for them to get re-elected.

      They have put their re-elections above the good of the country. He owns their souls. Look at Lindsey Graham. He has admitted he has become a Trump supporter because if he went against Trump he is afraid he would not get re-elected in South Carolina. When Trump became president he was just the opposite. He called him all kinds of insulting names. I'm sure there are others that feel the same way. That's why the GOP senate is so quiet about Trump's behavior.

      James Comey said that Trump has a way of eating at the souls of those who work for him. They get so entangled in his corruption, they can't find a way out other than quitting.

      Look at all the people who have left his cabinet and administration. Do you think having a skeleton cabinet made up of acting inexperienced members is good for the country? His goal is to run the country on his own, like a demagogue. That's why he meets Putin and Kim without having any prior diplomatic representation. He thinks he can do it all himself, because he wants all the glory that comes from those meetings, even though he exaggerates the outcome of the meetings and his uninformed base buys his BS.

      Hmm. How is anti semitism and anti American a fact? Are you anti American for criticizing Obama when he was Prez? And if she’s anti Semitic, what about the tweet trump sent with hillary and a star of David? You guys kill me. You cry whenever anyone accuses you of racism, but are quick to throw the anti semite accusation around.

      And my dad was a 70 yr old white guy and would not in a million years say any of the foul things your president does.

      “Send her back”.....to Somalia, which is in Africa, which makes it “go back to Africa”.....plenty of versions of

      that around.

      Engaged in by the president of the United stars and encouraged by people who say god is love.

      It’s not new. Thief’s such as Putin and Bibi use it all the time. So did Hitler and Mussolini.

      Incite violence against people to rile them all up. Swoop in and profit off the unrest.

      Trump is a pathetic fool. Keep supporting him. History will not judge him kindly.

      So you are a socialist and you support the squad and their anti American rhetoric.

      Perry A

      "Seeing the chants at Trump's rally tonight to "send her back" referring to Omar, was just despicable. Where is the freedom of speech, to chastise american policy and POTUS? This applies to anyone? Trump is racist but in this case, he could've been referring to back to the state where they came from, or did he actually, go back to your home country."

      B:

      That is what you think is despicable, and then you talk about freedom of speech for the squad. Freedom of speech exists for all or for no one.

      And even Nancy Pelosi didn't call Trump a racist, what are your facts to support that racist itself statement? Race nor color nor gender was the reason that Trump made his statements.

      It is simple, if people don't like America or Americans no one compels them to stay here.

      But when members of congress start thrashing America and Americans that is not free speech as it is more of them failing to uphold their oath to office.

      And remember PerryA the squad doesn't support you whitey.

      Mike,

      It is clear to most that the definitions of a racist remark, or sexist remark, etc. no longer have a common definition that we all agree on.

      Some people believe Trump just tells it like it is, and could care less about PC rules or hurt feelings. And many Americans are right there with him... while others think every word out of his mouth is racist, because after all he is a 70 something year old white guy, and how could anything he say not be racist.

      IMO pointing out that Omar is anti-Semitic and anti-American is just stating the facts of the matter, and there is nothing racist about it. Stating AOC is a Socialist is fact, and there is nothing racist or sexist about it.

      But there you have it... some people see the opposite, and that's all there is to it. Come 2020 we will see which part of America is the larger percentage, the PC Progressive crew, or the rest of us.

      Brad: I answered your question, but you never answered mine. I'll ask it again:

      Brad: What are you going to do if a democratic wins the electoral college votes and becomes president. Will you honor that person as your president?

      Brad: Here are 10 times Trump used racism. Oh, I know you are going to counter-punch it the best you can, because you are in denial and in your mind, Trump can do no wrong. I'm curious to see how you rationalize these 10 instances to prove Trump is not a racist.

      Here are two Trump quotes:

      In his 1991 book Trumped! John O'Donnell quoted Trump as saying:

      I've got black accountants at Trump Castle and at Trump Plaza. Black guys counting my money! I hate it. The only kind of people I want counting my money are short guys wearing yarmulkes.... Those are the only kind of people I want counting my money. Nobody else... Besides that, I tell you something else. I think that's guy's lazy. And it's probably not his fault because laziness is a trait in blacks.

      B:

      There is a lot of truth in what Trump was alleged to have said.

      Jewish people have been known for a very long time, as good business people.

      You go all the way back to 1991 to get that gem, and nothing as president.

      -------------------------------------

      So interesting to see “Progressive” Democrat Congresswomen, who originally came from countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe, the worst, most corrupt and inept anywhere in the world (if they even have a functioning government at all), now loudly and viciously telling the people of the United States, the greatest and most powerful Nation on earth, how our government is to be run. Why don’t they go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came. Then come back and show us how it is done. These places need your help badly, you can’t leave fast enough. I’m sure that Nancy Pelosi would be very happy to quickly work out free travel arrangements!

      B:

      What is wrong with that, these representatives don't even like America, and they don't like people like you, white. These representatives are forcing their color so they become bullet proof. But just like Obama, if someone criticized his performance, it would always be called racist. That is what these representatives are using, and they even called Pelosi a racist when she tried to say something about them.

      Now are you going to answer, whether you support these 4 representatives? Pelosi is afraid of them so now they are part of her democrats in congress. Are they yours as well?

      -------------------------------------------

      B:

      It was the substance in speech of these representatives that President Trump was saying that to them. There was no mention of Color

      ------------------------------------

      The question should not be is Trump a racist? The question should be why is Trump not a racist?

      B:

      Well even Pelosi said that President Trump is not a racist.

      Deal with that!

      “The crowd at Trump's rally chants "send her back, send her back" as Trump goes on an extended riff attacking Rep. Ilhan Omar.”

      Nahhhhhh, not racist or Islamophobic. Not at all.

      “There’s 63% of america are white, 40% of 400 million on food stamps, thats 57.6 million whites on food stamps. The numbers don’t lie. That’s over 3 times more whites on benefits in america than blacks, 6 to 10 times more than any other ethnicities. The numbers don’t lie.”

      These moochers should go back to Europe! That’s not racist, is it?

      What planet are you on? Omar was rebuked by Pelosi and apologized that her words hurt people. Why does she apologize but not trump?

      Do you not think trumps words hurt?

      Why did Clinton apologize for his sex monkey behavior, but trump doesn’t have to?

      Furthermore, look at you! You all get upset if we call trump a fascist or hitler. You can knock that off now. Gloves are off.

      Go back to Europe.

      The House/Democrats refused to rebuke Omar for her blatantly anti-Jewish rhetoric.

      But the are going to rebuke the President for calling out their Socialist and Anti-Semitic foreign born extremists?

      The Democrats espouse today the opposite of what this country is supposed to be about. Their politics will lead us to a Stalinist state run by Sharia Law if the likes of Omar and AOC are ever allowed to hold power completely in the House, Senate and Presidency.
