    It's getting to depress me. I wish I could switch off but I can't. I've taken to reading his unhinged burbles, imagining that it's Colbert reading them out on his show. That helps, a bit.

    Tacky (incidentally this is from 2016 before someone point that out, I don't know why it's surfaced on Twitter now).

    Resurfaced - I remember a lot being made of this at the time.

    Unsurprisingly. It looks like some sort of Patriotic Paedo rally.

    yeh, even rightwingers over here are spitting back at this. I'm sure he meant to include elaine chao as well ... or his own mother ...

    it's wishful of me, but he may just have cost himself re-election. the craven stupidity and race-baiting of this nobody can deny.

    White House reporter Brian J Karem tweeted at the president: "Good morning, racist much?"

    Problem is his base will love it.

    Read the Daily Mail readers' comments about this, if you can bring yourself to. The base is solid. Hopefully though the base alone will not be enough.

    That's the major problem. A small number of gits, in gerrymandered voting districts, decide elections. In a Fox news bubble. And the correlation between getting elected and lots of money is harsh.

    Yup. Certainly this side of the world, the online reaction from Trumpists is either "that's not racist" and/or "Pelosi is the real racist". I mean, yes, she's a wrong 'un but she's not PotUS.

    It's not surprising he's come out with the clearest dog whistle yet. Elections to win etc. And anyone who had a passing interest in the man knew exactly what they were voting for. A history of racism that's been in clear view for decades. Not renting properties to black people, his comments on the Central Park 5, all that birther trash talk.

    He's going to win 2020.

    His base alone is not enough to win the election.

    I'm sure there's other ways for a corrupt administration to get elected.

    He is one of the most gaff-prone politicians out there. If he's the one were counting on to save us from Fascism, damn were in trouble.

    (I don't consider a lot of what Trump says a "gaff." A gaff would imply that he isn't an entitled fuck who has never had to take responsibility for his actions, with leanings toward white supremacy.)

    Possibly, but it's harder for one that has pissed off the spooks as much as this one has.

    Too chaotic to actually start a military campaign still make him more worthy of a peace prize than Obama or though he got his as they couldn't officially anyone send Bush a bag full of dog turds:p
