    By now most of you have probably heard about Donald’s tweetstorm from this morning. It was full of gaslighting, unhinged rants, and overt racism. The three tweets below are generating the most controversy but really, his entire morning was completely unhinged.







    So my questions are:

    1. What’s this doing to our liberal democracy? What are the long-term effects of having a president who’s just so blatantly racist and divisive? How does a nation heal from having a president so blatantly pushing on wounded nerves?

    2. How can common decency win out? His own tweet is full of lies, most of these women were born in America and the one who wasn’t moved here when she was 10. Yet, a certain percentage of the population won’t ever realize this. What can be done to promote understanding of truth?

    3. To my knowledge, not a single Republican representative or senator has condemned these words. What’s it going to take?

    What do y’all make from all of this?

    Btw: other unhinged tweets today from Trump:

    Crickets from Utah’s entire relegation including Democrat Ben McAdams. Nothing from Romney or Lee. Where’s all the decency gone?

    Agreed. Those comments were some of the most telling yet. If you're "brown" you're not really American, you're essentially from somewhere else, some ****-hole, even if you were actually born in the U.S. and lived in the U.S. your entire life.

    Someone tell me again that Trump doesn't express explicitly racist thoughts routinely.

    Racists love trump for a reason. Central Park 5 and birtherism were of course dead giveaways. Yet 45% are either racist or are willing to vote for a racist.

    Trump may well be a racist. More troubling, however, is the fact that playing to racial animus is so successful. The Southern strategy has been the Republican Party’s pathway to the presidency since Nixon. Trump is just its most blatant practitioner. Demographics has narrowed the pathway and will eventually close the door, though probably not until 2024 or 2028, so plenty of time for Trump to be reelected.

    "Trump's tweet seemingly telling her"... "seemingly"??? It is pretty common knowledge where each of the squad members come from. Ilhan Omar is who TRUMP is referring to here. Thumbs up 266 Thumbs down 111
    I thought the President was referring to cortez's district. Thumbs up 668 Thumbs down 114
    The Squad ?? This folks is the New Democratic Party .. The “Squad”has plans for the Good old USA .
    Thumbs up 344 Thumbs down 114
    Hey genius, then maybe he was talking about representative Omar with that particular sentence? Ya think maybe?
    Thumbs up 29 Thumbs down 7
    Multiple articles taking Trump's word out of context.
    Thumbs up 301 Thumbs down 172
    Well you get the drift of how the public responded.

    Thriller is right again!
    Patriots vs. American Haters
    Why do you think TRUMP was elected AOC? Because under Democrat Naz! Party leadership, that is what it has become. Just look at "sanctuary cities", counties and states and open borders, drug pusher stores, etc, etc, etc.

    AOC fix your district first. Fact check- the former ICE Director had to tell you about the rule of the law at the border. Your the lawmaker! Your squad can change it! Instead of withholding aid AND going down there and saying they have no drinking water. Did you and your colleagues go buy 20 cases of water at around $50 to take back and donate? NO You were seen at a nice restaurant after. Yea So devastated! Fact check
    Thumbs up 207 Thumbs down 56
    It would seem Thriller that AOC is not highly thought of.

    We are witnessing a raging Socialist movement in America today. Just for starters...I'm sure I don't have to tell you...Three U.S. Senators have proposed a new plan to guarantee every American a government job. America's new political star, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is pushing for free medical care, free college, and 70% tax rates. And a recent Gallup poll says more Democrats now have a "positive view" of Socialism (57%) than Capitalism (47%). But what no one's really talking about in the mainstream press is WHY this is happening... and WHERE it's all headed. Well, one wealthy businessman says there's a secret reason behind this trend... and it's all leading to a political event unlike anything we've seen in our country in more than 50 years. If you care about your health... your wealth... your family... and your future... it's critical for you to understand what's really happening and what is most likely coming next.
    There is a dividing in America today Thriller - Gallup poll says more Democrats now have a "positive view" of Socialism (57%) than Capitalism (47%). Republicans are against socialism by a large margin. Want to live in Cuba or Valenzuela vote democrat.

    Damn, he's basically yelling "Go back to Your Country" to all the minorities...


    Damn.


    I wonder what the Race Relations Commissions would have to say about that.

    It has been very successful among some of my family members who feel freer to express prejudices that I had suspected were there but were better hidden. Not only am I appalled by so many in my country, but so many in my family. I don't know how to deal with it, quite honestly.

    You ignorance appalls me. I can't believe any person with a bit of intelligence or ethical responsibility can support that monster in the White House. No wonder Hitler was so successful -- because of people like you.

    A raging socialist movement? No we are witnessing a raging authoritarian ruler who cares for no one or nothing but the bottom line. A pig who will bleep anything in a skirt so long as they have reached the age of puberty, who has no compunction about cheating on his wife or violating women without their consent, who takes babies from their mothers, and wants to start a war with countries who don't agree with his economic views. Raging socialism, when where? Well, let's just abolish the public schools, the fire department, the police departments, the public utilities, social services of any kind, and take away healthcare from poor people. Let's just privatize everything and put the banks in charge. You're so bleepin ignorant. You're everything that is wrong with this country. You're probably one of those persons who will get a gun and shoot anyone who disagrees with you, especially if they're black or from another country, who would put a woman in prison if she got an abortion. I'm sure you're cheering about the protester who the police killed outside the detention center in Tacoma. Guess you're excited because Trump wants to sell off the land in our National Parks and wants to frack and put oil pipelines through areas where the largest reservoir in the world of pure spring water resides. Of course, you believe Global Warming is a money-making hoax. Right, just like Herr DDT?

    When I got back from hiking today, I saw a headline about Trump tweeting something racist. My first thought was it was probably going to be a stretch to make a good headline. Then I started seeing other news covering it so I googled it.

    All I have to say is how the hell is this guy president. If he would have shown those tweets before sending them out to literally anybody they would have advised, "You know, I don't think that's a good idea. You're coming off racist af. Don't tweet that." It's apparent the guy doesn't give a **** and it's sad he's the president.

    I sweat we're living in an alt reality.

    I would say so. I've read so many horrible things about Trump lately it just makes my blood boil. In my humble opinion he is the most horrid leader that our nation has had in my lifetime and it's not even close. He is so divisive and incites hostility everywhere he goes. It seems the only people he gets along with are dictators or pedophiles and that's only in deference to his position. I'm sure they think he's an a-hole too. Look what he did to his personal lawyer, Muellar, letting him take the fall for his corruption. What a sleezebag.

    I'm a byu fan and tonight on the news I saw an interview with their starting qb and he said he is a fan of trump as president (the question was asked, who is your favorite president of all time) because he is funny.

    I lost a lot of respect for him tonight.

    Not a single republican today spoke out and condemned Trump’s words. Not one. No one from his cabinet and no one from Congress.

    I understand the racist cult 45 will never leave their Dear Leader. But damn, I really hope everyone else votes Democratic in 2020. We can argue policies later. Pro life pro choice pro guns pro gun regulation? Who gives a damn right now? We need to unite and dump Trump. Decent people everywhere deserve someone better as leader of this country.

    Amazing. See what I mean? I mentioned this in another thread but so many Utahns are naive. Zach Wilson is from Draper. Went to corner canyon high school, one of the nicest and (whitest) schools in the state. Could be racist? Probably not. But damn, naive. I wonder how his black and Hispanic teammates feel? “Because he he funny.” Great. That’s exactly what we should be looking for in a president.

    Corner canyon’s student body is 85 percent white. It’s easier to be ignorant of Trump’s dividing of America when you aren’t exposed to the racial fault lines or aren’t studying them that Trump is exploiting.
