What a circus...

"That does not need to be our campaign call," Walker said.

But it is. It's too late. The toothpaste's out of the tube. Trump (with assistance from alt reich nabobs and their media in the US and 'abroad') has opened his own version Pandora's box and released full-on ugliness.

What this story leaves out is Trump's pathetic defense, saying he tried to stop the chants by speaking over the chants and resuming his speech 'very fast.'

Of course, video clearly shows Trump twice pausing, the second and louder chant having him pause for 13 seconds before starting his speech again... and continuing to slam Omar, giving tacit approval of the chant and the crowd's reaction.

https://edition.cnn.com/2019/07/18/politics/trump-disavows-ilhan-omar-send-her-back-chant/index.html

So no... his racism is still on display, his demagoguery is clear, and his hatred is a cancer on the United States still.

"I felt a little bit badly about it. ... I would say that I was not happy with it. I disagreed with it. But again I didn’t say that. They did. And I disagreed with."

Same ol', same ol'! First yes, then no, blame it on others once there is pressure and of course deny, deny, deny. That's Trump's little political world. And his fan-base "activities" remind me very much of those "Bierhaus" festivities roughly 75 years ago.

Well, he distanced himself from the “send her back” smart, smart move, let Omar and her squad of crazies dig their own graves. The President needs to step back and let this woman do it herself. Omar is polling at a pathetic 9%, she’s doing a great making herself look radical and it’s showing.

many Republicans alarmed

But most are unwilling to do anything about it because they want to continue getting big campaign contributions from the corporations and their executive class benefiting from Trump and the Republican programs. (After all, the Republican Party is the party of the wealthy class.)

And because most Republicans know their base is similar to most in trump's base, i.e. they fear 'those not from their demographic'. (PC talk)

A man is waiting in a line in Walmart and a woman in front of him is speaking on her cell phone in a foreign language. When she hangs up the man behind her says rudely, “ hey lady I noticed that you are talking in a foreign language, if you are from Mexico stop talking Mexican. You are in America now speak English.” The woman replies “what are you talking about?” The man replies even more rudely “ look if you insist on speaking in Mexican go back to Mexico where you came from. You are in America now speak English.” The woman states “ I’m not Mexican as I was speaking in my native tongue.” The man states “ if you are speaking in your native tongue I don’t care, just go back where you came from. The woman at that point smiles at this man and states “ I’m glad you made that comment as you and I agree on this. I am native American and I was speaking Iroquois. If you insist in speaking in your native tongue which is English why don’t you go back to England where you came from.”

And in this case Trump should go back to Germany where he came from if he doesn’t like the people here, but I just read he is not welcomed in the town his grandfather left. A majority of people that Trump has thrown under a bus, their family history goes back longer than his family in this country. Look who’s calling the kettle black . Draft evasion is in Trump’s DNA as his grandfather was a draft evader in Germany as well.

@bas4 Well, he distanced himself from the “send her back”

Only in the minds of his staunchest supporters. True believers, after all. It's not surprising the most dishonest president in modern history has attracted so many like-minded followers.

"The President needs to step back ......"

With all due respect, but let me correct just one word in this sentence:

"The President needs to step down .... ".

He surprises me every day with more negative news (than I ever expected).

But most are unwilling to do anything about it because they want to continue getting big campaign contributions from the corporations and their executive class benefiting from Trump and the Republican programs. (After all, the Republican Party is the party of the wealthy class.)

That goes for both sides, that a political survival and both parties do it. So you’re right on that, nothing wrong with it, if both sides wouldn’t do it, politics in the US and in most countries would be like some of these banana republics.

And because most Republicans know their base is similar to most in trump's base, i.e. they fear 'those not from their demographic'. (PC talk)

Same thing on the Dems side. For all the big mouth talk of AOC and the rest of her intelligent squad, in the end, they know where their bread is buttered and they know Pelosi runs the ship behind the scenes.

Only in the minds of his staunchest supporters.

Doesn’t matter, politically, optically, it was a smart move, let Omar dig her own grave.

True believers, after all. It's not surprising the most dishonest president in modern history has attracted so many like-minded followers.

Dishonest? Disagree. I think the last President was the most sneakiest and dishonest.

This whole thing has an Avenatti feel to it. Liberals going all in to support someone who is involved in a lot of questionable actions and who says questionable things. Just because she hates Trump, liberals seem to be blind to the warning signs.

Seems to me like it doesn't matter what the situation is, you'll always spin it as a negative development.

To me, and note I'm no fan of Trump, Trump is walking back from what is obviously a very fluid situation. Yes, he made a mistake originally, but he is consciously walking back. Some credit is due for both Republican and Dems in condemning Trump's original racist rant, which has resulted in a public reversal by Trump. Isn't that worth noting?

If no credit is given, nobody would bother in the future and democratic debate would simply become 'dissers will always diss'.

@blacklabeThis whole thing has an Avenatti feel to it.

Good point. Avenatti is definitely a good example of the kinds of corrupt creeps that have come out during the Trump era. Trump's been a creep-attracting magnet.

who says questionable things

@Sh1mon Trump is walking back

One perspective. Another is he's flat out prevaricating. For the 11,000the time.

12 ( +12 / -0 )

Well, he distanced himself from the “send her back” smart, smart move,

He didn't distance anything. He sat there, letting the cheer go on, for 13 seconds. Then he so faintly damned it that it was pretty much the equivalent of his 'both sides' Charlottesville speech.

Trump is walking back from what is obviously a very fluid situation. Yes, he made a mistake originally, but he is consciously walking back.

He hasn't walked back anything. In fact, he continued to tear into Omar after the chant, and today continues with the same 'she hates America, she should leave' rhetoric.

So no, he gets no credit. In fact, every time he opens his mouth and goes on about 'they hate America' and 'if they don't love it, leave' trash, he just reinforces that he's not walking back anything.

20 ( +20 / -0 )

Liberals going all in to support someone who is involved in a lot of questionable actions and who says questionable things.

Actually, I see people criticizing Trump telling Americans to go back to their countries. You have made up this silly idea that this equates to support of her policies.

Just because she hates Trump, liberals seem to be blind to the warning signs.

Just became you guys hate Obama, you seem to be blind to the warning signs of Trump.

Omar is polling at a pathetic 9%

Yet another Trump-hood. The poll that Trump's talking point comes from is a poll of white non-college voters who supported Trump in 2016 and was done on the website Axios.

You might as well say that Trump's polling in the single digits by asking LGBTQ PhDs who voted for HRC in 2016.

"The four horsewomen of the Apocalypse" are not the only women coming for Trump. Stormy is number five, still there in his rear mirror catching up fast to join her sisters in bringing a well-deserved Apocalypse to an abysmal administration.

Great picture. Someone was probably telling Melania to go back to where she came from and that was Trump's reaction.

18 ( +18 / -0 )

He didn't distance anything. He sat there, letting the cheer go on, for 13 seconds.

And then later in a statement he publicly said, he disavowed the chant. So now that he did that, what’s the problem? I understand if he would have said, I stand by the statement, but he didn’t, so good on him, now when will Omar apologize for vile comments about Jews and Israel? When will Rashida Tlaib apologize for using profanity to describe the President? When will AOC apologize plethora of idiotic comments she made? When will Ayanna Pressley apologize for calling the President the occupier of the White House?

Then he so faintly damned it that it was pretty much the equivalent of his 'both sides' Charlottesville speech

Which the media took completely out of context....nothing surprising.

Nothing makes it more clearer of the death of the Republican Party than to compare two incidents; one in 2008, and the other at Trump's most recent rally;

When a supporter said to John McCain at a campaign event, “I can’t trust Obama. I have read about him, and he’s not, he’s not — he’s an Arab.”  He replied; “No ma’am,” McCain said. “He’s a decent family man, a citizen that I just happen to have disagreements with on fundamental issues, and that’s what this campaign is all about.”

He added later “He is a decent person and a person that you do not have to be scared of as President,” McCain said. “If I didn’t think I’d be one heck of a better President I wouldn’t be running, and that’s the point. I admire Sen. Obama and his accomplishments, I will respect him. I want everyone to be respectful, and let’s make sure we are. Because that’s the way politics should be conducted in America.”

That was courage, that was integrity, and that was "being an American"...

Now compare that with Trump's racists tweets of hate and his smirk and silence as the crowd roars "Send Them Back"....

But it's no surprise; one is a dedicated war hero, who's strength of character allowed him to survive an enemy POW camp and torture, and go on to serve his country as a statesman in the Senate.

The other is a cowardly draft dodger, who scammed thousands with a fake University, lost over a billion dollars, and had six bankruptcies - and cavorted with porn stars and weirdos like Jeffrey Epstein.

The Republican Party - spineless cowards who sold every last molecule of their integrity to this third rate reality TV host. They're no longer the party of Reagan and McCain - they're now the party of Donald Trump and Roy Moore...

When will Rashida Tlaib apologize for using profanity to describe the President?

LOL. The man who's the pssy grabber in chief, who wants to get those 'sons of bitches' off the field, who nicknamed Adam Schiff 'Adam Schitt' and talked about shthole countries, who uses the term BS constantly... this man supposedly deserves an apology?

I'd have comments about that, but they wouldn't be very Presidential. Then again, neither is Donald Trump.

So how much longer are we going to have deflections about a party in 1992? Has nothing to do with anything.

Omar is saying the wrong things and has questions about marriage, immigration and tax fraud. Once Dems realize she is a risk, they will take her out themselves. Just like the liberal media pretended they never knew Avenatti.

That was in public, privately he couldn’t stand the guy and remember, he publicly sniped and attacked Trump publicly, so McCain spoke out of both sides of his mouth as well as being contradictory.

Now compare that with Trump's racists tweets of hate

How? Tell all of us how they were racist? Where did he attack any of these women based on race, color or religion. I don’t care about opinions, where did he racially attack them, please be specific.

and his smirk and silence as the crowd roars "Send Them Back"....

Tlaib smiled as well when she called the President a MF as well as Omar disparaging the President. So let me get this straight, if you are a woman and a minority, you can smile and take glee when your supporters back you in the condemnation of your opponent, but if you are White and a male, smirking equates to getting a needle in your arm now?

But it's no surprise; one is a dedicated war hero, who's strength of character allowed him to survive an enemy POW camp and torture, and go on to serve his country as a statesman in the Senate.

Who was bitter later because he couldn’t make the Presidency and was bested by an outsider, classic.

The other is a cowardly draft dodger, who scammed thousands with a fake University, lost over a billion dollars, and had six bankruptcies - and cavorted with porn stars and weirdos like Jeffrey Epstein. 

Who still made it to the Presidency and destroyed 16 career politicians and one of the most corrupt Secretary of State the country has seen to rise to the highest office in the land.

Trump gets to own his words. Spewing and inciting hatred is a very dangerous game that could blow up in his face when someone attacks and kills Muslim women or black women.

Trump's latest racist outburst is his worse because he attacks four elected congress women telling them to go back home when already they are home.

This is what happens with a gutter president and gutter politics.

13 seconds is a LOOONG time. Sit there and watch a clock for 13 seconds and imagine a crowd chanting all that time. He obviously approved of the chant and was basking in the hate as long as he could.

Trump at midday tried to distance himself from the chant. At the White House, he told reporters: "I felt a little bit badly about it. ... I would say that I was not happy with it. I disagreed with it. But again I didn’t say that. They did. And I disagreed with."

You can guarantee that if the same situation arose in a second term of Trump, the reaction would not be the same.

The democrat socialists haven't had a good week: they were forced to support a "squad" of anti-American congresswomen, and their attempt at advancing an impeachment resolution was a dismal failure; so, they are now reduced to clutching their pearls over a spontaneous chant at a political rally.

Even Trump is starting to realize that people have figured out his comments were racist:

“I felt a little bit badly about it,” the president told reporters at the White House when asked about the chants at Wednesday night’s rally, which drew an outpouring of criticism from Democrats and some of Mr Trump’s fellow Republicans.

He feels badly that they have figured him out. He was hoping he wouldn't get called out for speaking straight about his racism.

Trump and the GOP are the minority. They are in a struggle for life as they try to retain a minority rule. In the process the GOP base is shrinking as Trump debases conservative values and sensibilities. Without foreign interference there would be no Trump 2016 victory and it's his only hope for 2020.

Trump is winning with his xenophobic style speeches because audience thrives on it.

It's him but it's also them. Hopefully they won't be numerous enough to re-elect him for president in 2020.

Chants of 'send her back' smacks of the Nazi era. The reason is people feel entitled to let loose the worst of themselves, usually held back with discretion, in a non Trump era. This leader allows them to freely say and express terrible ideals of nationalistic and racial hate, like group chanting 'send her back'. Disgusting. It doesn't matter if some believe Trump isn't a racist, he definitely shows poor taste in how he acts and what he says. People who don't condemn, but find excuses to spin what he says into a more positive light, should realize they're digging into the far depth of their worst part of their souls, to do so, which was a trait of people who followed the Nazi's.

Hilarious that liberals not allowing conservatives to push ridiculously false narratives results in threats of suspensions.

So if I tell a black person to go back to their own country, even though they are American, according to Trump and his merry band of righties, that isn't racist?

Who's to the right of Trump? No one because he's already the furtherest there.

Now the news organizations are re-reporting lots of very negative things Trump had to say about America when he started to run for president. Maybe he should go back where he came from.

Trump at 0300 in the Lincoln bedroom bathroom: Let's see, this week they'll be more pictures of cages at the border... The Epstein mess is going to come out and there's video with me and him at Mar-A Lago.... The judge will release testimony and evidence on my cover-up payoff to Stormy.... Next week Mueller testifies.... Gotta change the subject....

"So interesting to see 'progressive' Democrat congresswomen, who originally came from countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe, the worst, most corrupt and inept anywhere in the world (if they even have a functioning government at all), now loudly and viciously telling the people of the United States, the greatest and most powerful nation on earth, how our government is to be run.

"Why don't they go back and help fix the totally broken and crime-infested places from which they came. Then come back and show us how it is done."

There, that should do it...

Tomorrow Trump will reverse his reversal.

Trump fans, check his tweets to know what to say.

Even Trump is starting to realize that people have figured out his comments were racist:

I’m more inclined to think it was his handlers in his ear.

He’s got to stay on the edge with his racism but not fall into the precipice. He’s got to give himself and other disingenuous people just enough of a sliver to deny it’s racism. This is an example.

I think this will be superfluous if he got a second term.

Trump is winning with his xenophobic style speeches because audience thrives on it.

It's him but it's also them.

I'm reminded of V For Vendetta:

"We've had a string of embezzlers, frauds, liars and lunatics making a string of catastrophic decisions. This is plain fact. But who elected them? It was you! You who appointed these people! You who gave them the power to make your decisions for you! While I'll admit that anyone can make a mistake once, to go on making the same lethal errors century after century seems to me nothing short of deliberate."

Trump is only one deranged, senile old bigot. He wouldn't really be a problem if it weren't for all the people that support him.

@serrano Their anti-Americanism has hurt many Americans.

Those who voted for Trump calling for him to undermine US systems, those who want Trump and his fellow elite to be above the law (because laws are for peasants har har) those who attack free speech when it comes from someone whose beliefs are different from theirs, especially when they're women from a different demographic, and those who say it's acceptable for 'foreign' states to 'meddle' in US politics - as long as the meddling benefits Trump and his 'elite' -

should look in the mirror before calling someone anti-American.

Melania with all that plastic can stand there expressionless, she ought to say something especially as she's an immigrant (not born in the Us), she's a woman (groping, molesting, underage girls) she was supposed to be campaigning against bullying say something woman, don't just stand there, empower yourself

What is unAmerican?

Short spelling, Trump.

longer version

Not in accordance with American characteristics.

Contrary to the interests of the US and therefore treasonable.

Like Trump praising an enemy and brutal dictator like the NK Kim Jong-un.

Someone who does not believe America is great!

Trump again with his campaign "Make America great AGAIN" so he don't believe it is.

Poll: Most Americans call Trump's tweets targeting 4 congresswomen 'un-American'

Three-fourths of the women polled call his tweets offensive. Independents, by more than 2-1, say the comments are "un-American." 

Overall, 59% call the president's tweets "un-American."

What is Un-America. Short version Trump. Long version Trump.

Trump is only one deranged, senile old bigot.

He beat 16 establishment Republicans, 1 leading Democrat Secretary of State, sounds brilliant to me, if he’s senile, then the Democrats are totally inept and as for bigotry no one seems to be able to explain to me how the President is a bigot because he never mentioned anything about the color or race of the women, so there goes that analogy...

He wouldn't really be a problem if it weren't for all the people that support him.

Thank God for us. Trump/Pence 2020

I wonder if Trump's brown-shirts are finally out of control.

This isn't the last time the braying hysterical mobs chant this racist slogan, I'll wager on that.

Oh and the Republicans get everything they deserve as Trump's enablers.

President Donald Trump tried to distance himself on Thursday from supporters' chants of "send her back" at a rally 

if you want an example of a shutting down a racist that was John McCain in ‘08. This president did no such thing. “Distancing “ himself... oh please.

Yeah, Trumpsters like to call him strong and say it like it is. Yet, reality shows that he always denying saying anything and whining that he is being treated badly. He is the biggest crybaby in US presidential history!

When are the Trumpsters going to start wearing their arm bands in solidarity with Dump?

President is a bigot because he never mentioned anything about the color or race of the women, so there goes that analogy...

The four elected representatives are women and black, so Trump didn't need to directly mention that they were women and black. Blame the victims is always a sign how something is wrong.

Telling them to go back to their home countries without realising they are American and home.

Trump inciting hatred.

All acceptable behaviour to the Trump gang of righties.

The four congress women, "The four horsewomen of the Apocalypse" riding thoroughbred wild stallions full of life don't need to worry about polls since they have just been elected.

While the guy on an aging old nag losing percentage and could already be down more than 5 million votes. Women starting to have doubts.

That depends on how you want to interpret that.

Born in America make you an American even if your mother is an illegal migrant.

Even people with given citizenship can only have it cancelled according to a limited number of definitions.

"On Sunday, Trump tweeted that Representatives Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Ayanna Pressley, and Rashida Tlaib should “go back” to “help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came” before leveling criticism at the U.S. government."

"racism first defined as “a belief that race is the primary determinant of human traits and capacities and that racial differences produce an inherent superiority of a particular race.” More broadly, it is defined as “racial prejudice or discrimination.”

More people are opposed to Trump racism than those who support it.

1950: Four women of color, all US citizens, get on a bus in Alabama - the driver tells them they have to sit in the back...

2019: Four women of color, all US citizens, get elected to the Congress - and Trump tells them to "go back to where you came from"...

Trump and Trumpers are correct when they say they "want to take our country back"....back to the "good 'ole days"....

No wonder David Duke and Richard Spencer are such vocal Trump supporters...

Maybe next he'll suggest making all those illegals he employs at his properties slaves...(maybe they are already)...

MAWA Baby! Make America White Again!

This is what the Republican Party has become...Eisenhower, Reagan, Bush 1, would be astonished and ashamed..

Trump did not walk back, he just threw his supporters under the bus, after leading them to it.

Not only he is a racist, he is a cowardly racist!!

Republican rallies resemble those in a European country in the 1930s, emboldening the racists, bringing the bigots out of the woodworks. The sorry part is that there were only 4 republicans who had the courage to condemn this bigotry bonanza the GOP rallies have become. The rest of them are like neutered puppies competing in playing fetch for Donny.

Trump is like a leader of thugs at a bad junior high school. Maybe he will mellow when he gets older, like wine or an orange cheese.. In the meantime, in the picture, he is modeling the new salute he would like supporters to try out.
