    Is it fair to lump ALL Trump supporters into the category of racists and bigots?

    I don't think it is fair to do that.  It could be that there are many Republicans who don't particularly like Trump, but they hate Hilary more, and don't like Bernie's socialist agenda.  Many are not happy with Obama and think that a Clinton administration would be more of the same.

    Racist and bigot are harsh words. I would use something more like unreasonable and irresponsible for this simple sampling of reasons:

    "My IQ is one of the highest — and you all know it! Please don't feel so stupid or insecure; it's not your fault."

    “You know, it really doesn’t matter what the media write as long as you’ve got a young, and beautiful, piece of ass.”

    “I’ve said if Ivanka weren’t my daughter, perhaps I’d be dating her.”

    “One of they key problems today is that politics is such a disgrace. Good people don’t go into government.”

    “I will build a great wall – and nobody builds walls better than me, believe me – and I’ll build them very inexpensively. I will build a great, great wall on our southern border, and I will make Mexico pay for that wall. Mark my words.”

    “Our great African-American President hasn’t exactly had a positive impact on the thugs who are so happily and openly destroying Baltimore.”

    “If I were running ‘The View’, I’d fire Rosie O’Donnell. I mean, I’d look at her right in that fat, ugly face of hers, I’d say ‘Rosie, you’re fired.”

    “I have never seen a thin person drinking Diet Coke.”

    “All of the women on The Apprentice flirted with me – consciously or unconsciously. That’s to be expected.”

    “My fingers are long and beautiful, as, it has been well documented, are various other parts of my body.”

    “I think the only difference between me and the other candidates is that I’m more honest and my women are more beautiful.”

    "The only card [Hillary Clinton] has is the woman's card. She's got nothing else to offer and frankly, if Hillary Clinton were a man, I don't think she'd get 5 percent of the vote. The only thing she's got going is the woman's card, and the beautiful thing is, women don't like her."

    "She had blood coming out of her whatever" – on Meghan Kelly, moderator of the first  Republican debate.

    "We can't continue to allow China to rape our country"

    On Senator John McCain, former Vietnam PoW: "I like people who weren’t captured."

    “Laziness is a trait in blacks.”

    “Black guys counting my money! I hate it. The only kind of people I want counting my money are little short guys that wear yarmulkes every day.”

    “I rented him a piece of land” about his relationship with Muammar Qaddafi. “He paid me more for one night than the land was worth for two years, and then I didn’t let him use the land. That’s what we should be doing. I don’t want to use the word ‘screwed'..."

      They all say, that PC is Politician Crap, and Donald doesn't do PC.

      Your comment doesn't even make sense - which is how I imagine you justify this stuff. Somehow, all these things make sense to you and you agree with them. No wonder Loli wrote this question this way. These statements make good people cringe. Uncool.
