  •  That really, really clanged for me. (8+ / 0-)

    He's talking about a foreign head of state, in a country we have significant bilateral ties with.

    If he wants to criticize the President of Nigeria, by all means, have at, but that insulting, dismissive condescension, like the President of one of the largest countries in Africa is just some guy...I can think of one other time he's pulled something like that - the "that one" line in the debate - and that was against a black guy, too.

    Art is the handmaid of human good.
