  1. But telling 4 women of color, 3 of whom were born in the U.S, to go back to their countries, is fine. Makes sense.
  2. Can anyone tell me what Obama did or say that would make him the most racist president? And don’t just give me the “hE diVided tHe cOUntry” argument. What actions did he take? What rhetoric did he use?
  3. That’s such crap. Just because you don’t want illegals and asylum seekers locked up in camps, doesn’t mean you’re not “for legal entry” .
  4. What? I didn’t imply that you’re racist. I made it a point to say that I thought you were being willfully ignorant. I still think that. But if you aren’t being willfully ignorant, you simply just don’t care that he said what he said (it doesn’t matter to you, because you think he’s justified in those comments/agree with him that they should go back to their “countries”). Nothing I said would indicate that I think that you’re a racist. But it’s one of the two.
  5. I understand what you’re saying, but when you try to call it anything other than what it is, it gives the appearance that you’re defending him. I think that by him telling them to go back to the countries they came from, he trying to convey a message that they don’t naturally belong in “his America”. So I would say that he’s perceiving his race as being superior, because the only reason he thinks they are from different countries is because they aren’t white, with traditionally white names.
  6. I don’t know if I fear for other races under Trump, because I know that the constitution will protect those people from just straight up being sent away. But that doesn’t mean he doesn’t feel a certain way about who the “true Americans” are. It’s pretty clear that he does.
  7. Nola, come on. You’re smarter than this, man. It is what it is. What he said is pretty messed up and textbook racist rhetoric. He’s an old man. Old people say racist stuff. Nobody is going to think you’ve turned raging liberal if you just call something what it obviously is. He told those women to where they came from, right after insinuating that they all come from other countries. The only reason he’d think that, is because they aren’t white. You guys don’t want to be called bigots and racists, but you defend **** like this.
  8. Until he does that I’m not going to believe he would. It’s pretty clear how Trump views white, black, and brown people. But, let’s just say he did. Who the **** is Donald Trump to tell any U.S citizen to go back to their country?
  9. For the love of God, man. Read what the man says. You can choose not to put stock into words all you want, but words convey meaning. It’s obviously what he’s saying here. You cannot be serious, right now.
  10. I’m 99.999% sure that he wouldn’t say that, unless they had an English accent and were black or brown.
  11. I’m sorry. Wtf would you call telling the black and brown Congresswomen who were born in the U.S.A and/or are citizens of the U.S.A to go back to the countries they came from? That’s like THE first things racists learn to say. Please explain how on earth that wasn’t racist af.
  12. I don’t think you’re stupid. I just think you’re willfully ignorant. Either that or you know what he means and you just don’t care, because you feel the same way.
  13. So let’s see if I got this. He speaks about the congresswomen coming from more corrupt “COUNTRIES” with more corrupt governments telling “us how our government is to be run” and then proceeds to tell them to go back. And you think he meant districts. Not countries, you know, like he said with his words? And you think this, even though the context of everything he’s speaking about points to him meaning country and not district? Thats some straight Harvey Updike type fanaticism, right there. Good grief.
  14. The immigration system does need an overhaul. I agree with you on that. I don’t think we would agree with each other on what that needs to be. But that’s another debate. I don’t agree with you on the racist part. Trump seems to be a pretty big racist. He’s not a racist in the “I won’t talk to black and Hispanic people” sort of way. But he obviously doesn’t think that those people have just as much of a claim to our country as white people do. For him to think that all of those women have a “country to go back to” proves it. He thinks of people of color as invaders and not truly American. I can’t say that any president in the modern era seemed to have those views. But he’s def not the only person in America who thinks like that. I’d say about 38-42% of the country thinks exactly like he does.
  15. I honestly can’t tell if this is a joke or not.
