I see you've embraced it, but your leader Trump has now rejected it, so you need to catch up.


I know! I've been waiting for this day. Now I can follow my glorious Trump into the sunset of political correctness, where dismissive and tactless rhetoric isn't needed to work the other Trumpkins into a frenzy. They will ignore that his apology is an admonishment of most of their strongly-held-prejudices while understanding if he himself starts behaving with more class than they would like. It's a win/win for Trump.

Ok Trump, lead the way. Make America White... er, I mean Christian... oops, I mean GREAT again. That's it, "great".

No, I was pointing out the absurdity of the anti Trump rhetoric and hatred.

That's what I said.

The problem for you is that either way, anyone defending Trump's words had the rug pulled from under them when Trump accepted that he was wrong. No matter how absurd you might think anti-Trump rhetoric and hatred is, you were still defending Trump's mistakes.

Trump realizes his tough guy anti political correct insulting method has backfired as a tactic ( it only worked with the racist GOP electorate) so now he’s changing into I’m sorry in hopes it changes his bad poll numbers.

Hate is a strong word. He's used racial stereotypes, but calling that hate is a YUGE misrepresentation....


Using racial stereotypes which reinforce negativity towards the recipient group is hugely different than hate?

Interesting...

Another made up fact.

Or, can you back that ridiculous assumption up ?

This is what divides us.

Painting entire groups of people with a broad brush.

Is that what you take away?

Maybe Willtell will have to regret his words.

Sick and tired of watching Trump supporters be called racist.

To do this makes you prejudice.

Unless somebody knows every single Trump supporter.

And, why they support him.

The racist element of the GOP pushed Trump through. That doesn't mean that every supporter is racist.

For example, the minority vote got Obama elected, that doesn't mean that everyone that voted for Obama was part of a minority group.

Maybe that's the problem. We know trump has no real political chops or even basic knowledge of the issues let alone ideas for improving the plight of the American citizen. We have no real substance or vision from the guy so we are left only with "his words". So that is how he has been measured...because of this, the only way to judge his supporters with with the same scale.

Assumption: Trump supporters can't support policy so they must support "his words".

What racist group is he talking about ?

I don't know all of the early Trump supporters.

I am unwilling to prejudge a giant group of people I don't know.

That is in itself is a bigoted assumption in my opinion.

Just like the other two reboots of the Trump campaign, this will last a few days, then he will go right back to his old ways, his ridiculous bombast rhetoric and his unfiltered late night tweets.

He just can't stay away from it more than a few days.

The one he imagined And which you are not a part of.

Fine, it still doesn't mean that he was saying that all Trump supportes are racist.

Maybe I missed something.

Wouldn't be the first time.

The word racist is being used to the point it will become meaningless.

So which words does he "regret"? Is he going to change any of his proposed policy positions because of his newfound "regret"?

Or is everyone being gullible and believing a politician's attempts to pivot to a more moderate position? Because every single national politician pushes "hardline" policy positions when trying to secure their own party's nomination, then softens their stances in order to get support from moderate voters, independent voters, and disgruntled opponents. Trump's just late in doing it.
