    This seems to be the new talking point for Trumpeteers - I am a Trumper, not a racist. Who called you a racist? Many anti-Trumpers, such as myself, think that Trump is a megalomaniac who repeatedly lied to Americans, caused his proxies to repeatedly misinform Americans, degraded Americans, and repeatedly embarrassed America. When he was not the above, he spent countless hours ripping at the fabric of our nation. Then, he urinated over our traditions and when he lost an election, he nakedly cried foul and further ripped America apart.

    Sure, he enabled racism and encouraged hate, even if he isn’t himself a racist. But that is just one if so many foul demerits that he so justly deserves.

    However, it would be equally foul to call or assume every Trumpeteer is a racist. Many Trumpeters who approved of his policies just quietly hold their noses when the venom seeps through Trump’s mouth or thumbs.

    I don't know what Trump supporters stand for or think they stand for, but Trump stands for 2 things.
    1. pursuit of his personal grievances
    2. constant need for attention & adoration.

    that's it.

    So, to support him to lead anything, makes Trump supporters AT BEST massive suckers.

    Trumpers think it's impossible to be a republican or a conservative and not own Trump branded kneepads.

    Nothing new about it, because we were never flippn racist.

    Perhaps the only thing new, is that you were exposed to a voice beyond your cozy echo chamber.

    Not all Trump supporters are racist, but with Trump, comes these guys. Trump and his supporters need to own up to them, because they make up a significant portion of Trump's base.

    You mean we ought to DISown them.

    Perhaos, but politics have always made for strange bedfellows. Doesn't mean you're obligated to champion the things that make the 'strange'.

    I'd love to see Trump DISown them. Instead, he told them to stand back and stand by.

    You can't have a functioning government if one side isn't willing to lose and calls every defeat a fraudulent election.

    However, Fox News is all abuzz about the Cali recall election being stolen already and it hasn't even been completed yet.

    Most of the country loved the guy on 9/12 twenty years ago, but plenty had lots of unkind things to say about him before, during and after he was President. Most of the country also consumed the mainstream media as if it were gospel. Some still do today. Now we know the main stream media has an agenda. Some more than others. Many of us believed most of what they said until Trump. What I have learned is there is more of a uni-party than two parties. Two parties that worked as one to stay in power rarely working for the people. Then Trump came along and called it out. Many hate Trump for it and but many more love him for it. For W to compare 9/11 to 1/6 tells you all you need to know. This is the guy that got us into 2 wars. The hypocrisy of these people in DC never stops, yet some still don't see it, because they entrust the mainstream media.

    Bush was a failed president, largely because he picked terrible advisors starting with Cheney. Funny thing is, most every republican I know now disowns him and pretends they didn't support him. Damn neocon or some other nonsense I hear.
    That said, I've always thought he was a guy you could have a beer with while watching a ball game. The country would have been far better off if he had been MLB commissioner instead of president.

    Come on Man!

    Pure political self interest has been going on for decades (really since the beginning but has certainly gotten worse over time). Technology has brought it front and center. To try and blame Trump and only Trump here is just lazy.

    The fact that you consider neo-Nazi’s as “strange bedfellows” is the crux of the problem.

    You are basically saying “hey, it would be nice to disown them, but we can’t afford to do that.... because politics”. That’s sick, especially in domestic politics. Shouldn’t be hard at all to disown Nazi’s, people who show you what they are. Sometimes we have to make moral sacrifices dealing with corrupt or brutal foreign regimes. There is no excuse to let that happen domestically.

    Bill's duet with monica, (he played the sax while she played the skin flute), was even better than his solo.
