    President Trump used inelegant (and downright vulgar) language in his denunciation of certain countries, and their residents. That said, I have a strong feeling that almost all of those who are currently denouncing him for this speech infraction were never fans of Donald Trump, anyway. In logic, there is a fallacy known as the a priori fallacy. It works something like this: If one is predisposed to like something (or someone), then one will seize upon anything favorable to it (or him, or her), while dismissing, out of hand, anything unfavorable. Likewise, if one is predisposed to dislike something (or someone), then one will seize upon anything unfavorable to it (or him, or her), while dismissing, out of hand, anything favorable. Does the relevance here seem obvious?

    He probably shouldn't have buried those countries. That said, it doesn't have to be a racist statement. Could it be some read between the lines thing? I mean, it could be. But it may not be either, the reality is that those countries suck, and pointing that out isn't necessarily racist, nor is not wanting people less likely to contribute and more likely to be a financial and resource drain. It just so happens that a lot of those countries tend to be populated by black people. It's unfortunate in any case.

    Didn't think so. The idea that he has "the American people" behind him at this point is nonsense. He has bigots and racists and xenophobes behind him.
    Bigots and racists are on your team.
    You should be planning for seven more Trump years.
    Call your state legislators and insist they approve the Article V convention of States to propose amendments.

    Liberals have never altered their playbook. Everyone who disagrees with them is always called a racist or bigot. Even when policies create more opportunities for minorities.

    But he's not as much as an embarrassment as the people who hate him.

    While I figure the Donkephant has been skilled at getting the media and publi to chase their tails to cover up their real actions for a long time. Trump is a puppet master such as we have not seen before. If you are truly concerned with this fluff, look behind it at what the white house and congress are actually doing or not doing. That's the story behind the fluff

    Under the Democrats, our national policy has been one of white genocide. We massively tax productive people to the point where productive people stop reproducing. At the same time, we bring in millions of black and brown people who lack skills. We put them on welfare to ensure they have plenty of time to breed. The Democrats have slowly built a vote advantage by bringing in a permanent underclass who exchanges their votes for welfare and other benefits.

    In a few more years our cities will be indistinguishable from those in the second and third worlds. We must halt all immigration.
