  •  Trump has been playing the race card (6+ / 0-)

    The core belief behind Trump's ravings is that we are a lily-white nation that could never, ever freely elect someone who was not 100% totally white.  No African-Americans or Latinos need apply.  Oh, and an Asian?  Please, don't even go there.

    There is a segment of the population who long for the easier days when white exceptionalism was a given and anything that was done to keep the playing field uneven was justified.  We will get, we are getting, beyond that.  Better to celebrate our progress than to delve back into the past for personal gain.

    Trump strikes me as a loathsome substitute for a real human being.  I never realized what a sack of crap he was, but it is being driven home to me each day.  In my opinion he is a bully, a creep, a windbag, a liar and not a very nice person.  I personally believe that he would say, or do, or support anything that helped him personally, regardless of the facts or the dictates of simple human decency.  Some might say that would make Trump a functioning sociopath.  Some might be right.

      and I won't watch his show or the network that is coddling him.

      He must have had a sad childhood, with his constant need for attention.

    •  That's also what Trump's "terrible student" ... (4+ / 0-)

      stuff is all about.  When he claims that he has friends who have very bright sons who couldn't get into the Ivy League, and there's no way that Barack Obama had the grades to do it, it's more of a foghorn blast than a dog whistle.  (Query: Doesn't Trump have any friends with bright DAUGHTERS who didn't get into an Ivy?)

      The message is, "You should hate him, because he's not really one of US, and he took spots at two Ivy League schools from people who ARE like US, and did it on the basis of affirmative action.  If it weren't for people like him, your son who is quite bright, but a B- minus student, could get into an Ivy, too."

      Still PROUD to be a Democrat!
