One was born in Detroit, another in Cincinnati, another in Brooklyn. But I guess since they are not white, it's ok.

Is he stupid?

Is he racist?

Or does he just say these things to satisfy those in his base that are racist and stupid?

Yeah, he would never say that to a white person. Even if a white person that was born and immigrated to america Trump and his supporters won't see the difference. They all think all non-whites immgrints are forgien born and white immgrites are American born.

@burntbyhellfire: ha, you do the exact same thing.

I've seen in the comment section in news articles that white immgrints saying "go back to your country" or something like that to non-white immgrints, but not specifically to anyone, just saying it in general. I've seen this numerous times and nobody seems to mention that.

what do you mean by white immigrants? you mean europeans, canadians, or australians born elsewhere that moved to the US?

Stop. Telling non white people who were mostly was BORN IN THE USA to "go back to whatever country they came from" has always been a racist thing to do.

You guys are spinning SO hard right now. It's like you are trying to alter reality.

I remember one time someone told me to go back to my country due to my skin color, even though I was born here. That was objectively racist. Things didn't end well for him.

In what world is telling an American Born person of color to "go back to your country" not racist? That's literally always been a racist thing to do. There is no way around this.

I can't believe we are even questioning that fact.

Follow the lengthy chain.

"Even if he was directing his comments towards the group pictured in the article, you know damn well one can not speak against a protected class."

In a rudimentary explanation that means anything, outside of a positive comment, towards these people (even the media says he did not specify anyone) will be met with both a defense and an offense by the MSM. Understand? If he was referring to Omar?

I heard things bad about Trump, but when I look them up, they're no where near as bad as they say, and paint him as devil.

If you'd let his own ignorance be his downfall, rather than try and force it, maybe all the troll voters wouldn't feel the need to vote for him.

If you ask me, get the troll voters to ironically vote against him. If everyone says Trump 100% gets 4 more years, maybe sheepole will vote against him and for the dem underdog, like the one who smokes cock, or the old man.

So his clearly racist statement wasn't racist because the "ebul MSM" would have defended the 4 minority women and attacked Trump no matter what he said? Even though in this specific instance it was clearly problematic?

Omar wasn't born here but you know as well as I do comments about protected classes are a big no no. Admitting such a thing is difficult I am sure. The point (which again, you've made for me. TY) is regardless what he said, he would be lambasted. For example, he could have told Cortez to leave D.C. and go back to NYC and that still would cause outrage. That's what I am looking at.

Your comment or whatever was said to you? I'd actually feel sorry for you and I'd look at it as ignorant more than anything else but TBH, I'd also want to know why someone just walked up to you and told you to skidaddle.

These people (Trump and the supposed minority politicians) have said numerous things looked upon as offensive (depending on who you are and where you stand) to each other but somehow the line is now crossed? It's called selective outrage. Omar is as anti-american as far back as I can remember and quite frankly she deserves a lot of the negative comments she receives. The other people? The other two? I wouldn't question their nationality w/o first knowing but they are learning a lesson in politics 101. Like him or not, Trump knows what he is doing.

People can say stupid things (you perceive as racist) that are just plain ole ignorant and I don't know your story but you don't seem willing to share it though.

Would you be as outraged as you project you are if he was directing his comments towards one specific chick rather than the entire basket as you think?
