(Politico)   Trump shows off his "triple threat" ability by managing to combine racism, misogyny AND xenophobia in a single sentence attacking Rep Omar: "She's telling us how to run our country. How did you do where you came from..how's your country doing? "   (politico.com) divider line

I've heard so much worse said about various women on this site it's hard to be shocked or offended by this.
In comparison this is pretty tame.

When Trump tells this one, the bartender calls him Sir.


With tears in his eyes.

He will lose zero voters over making this statement on as many other similar statements as he wants. The deplorables like it.

Wow. That changes everything.

Not "concern". Disdain for the supposed transformative power of a sick Twitter burn.

It's not particularly misogynistic. But it makes up for it with the racism and xenophobia.

Remove White People to just say ME FIRST. Cause he doesn't give a rats ass about anyone else.



Yeah, but pandering to racist white people works to his benefit.

Plus he really does seem to hate everyone non-white even more.  It's a pattern for him, and it's increasingly hard to deny it every time he opens his mouth.

JonathanMurray: Two out of three ain't bad, I guess?


I think Xenophobia and racism tend to get blended together if the country in question is predominantly made up of a race that is a minority in the country expressing the offense.

For example, put on dreadlocks and affect a Jamaican accent? People scream racism, but IMHO that's just a tangent. You're really just mimicking a culture. If I put on a toque and used a Canadian accent, nobody would seem to care.

She came to the United States riding a wave of sympathy for Somali people in general. She was able to elevate her position in life as a resident of the United States. Now she trashes the United States like it's some kind of Somalia. That's the point President Trump is making. Knowing all these facts doesn't make me a racist as much as it implies Omar is an immature troublemaker.

She's advocated for human rights, student loan forgiveness, expanding healthcare, and a higher minimum wage. Is that trashing the United States?

If you think racism is justified, or good, just say so.

>_>  ... <_< ... >_>

Okay. Today we all believe the Congresswoman from Minnesota is allowed to criticize the way her/our country is being run. Those things she said to the NYT about how she exists to start fires and Democrats are running scared from their own shadow are... okay? Valid? Not a product of a few isolated fake progressives on the internet whom we are duty-bound to ignore?

Or do we believe her views should be ignored, but NOT on the basis of being a Somalian refugee? It's okay as long as we swear her race, gender and religion are nothing to do with it!

Truly, Donald Trump is a great uniter. I've never seen Democrats fall in line so fast. It's a shame he lacks all capacity to focus and we'll all be united about some other thing he hates tomorrow, or in a couple hours.

Either it's okay to criticize or it's not. I know Donald Trump is wrong, like, 99% of the time, but please don't wait for him to say something to work out how you feel about it. And don't run screaming away from your own well-reasoned (?) viewpoints just because he happened to agree with you. Do the work or you're never going to figure out where you went wrong or if you went wrong.

I was born in America. My parents were born in America, as were theirs. And I'm a white guy, so maybe my opinion will matter a little more to people like you, despite Omar being better qualified in every actual way.
If America actually stood for the ideals it preaches (liberty, democracy, equality, etc.) we'd be pretty damn good. Until we do that? Fark America. There's a farkton of shiat we, as a nation, need to make amends for, going back to our very founding, because that shiat is still affecting society and farking people over to this day. And we refuse to do so because of arrogant, ignorant nationalist pigfarkers who refuse to accept that America could ever have done anything wrong, or that it continues to do so.

Piss on you. I've been asked, "Where are you from?" my entire life. When I say Queens, the ask, "Where are you really from?" If she grew up in a city since she was a child and didn't move there of her own volition, who are you to say where she's from. Trump's statement is racist and xenophobic because he assumes she doesn't belong here because of how she looks. I guarantee she's worked harder to be American than you have.

So this thing that people do where they make up what Trump really meant.   Trump is too much of an imbecile to say those sentences?   He's the President and you're an internet troll.  Perhaps Donald Trump says exactly what Donald Trump means and not the magic polysyllabic jibber jabber all his apologist seem to hear.


Second, you think you have made anything sound better?   Everything you have just said makes you a terrible American.  Honestly Trump's crap sounds like his usual thoughtless cruel bully routine.  You.  You sounds like a really racist piece of crap that REALLY sits down and owns it.   Listen to yourself.  Look what kind of crap you hear in your own head.
