Yes, what the President tweeted this morning was racist. There is no arguing it. You cannot tell four women of color to "go back to where they came from" & it not be racist, especially when three were born here. It is always racist. It is never not racist. It's Racism 101. It's the first thing they teach you in racism class after learning all the basic slurs. It's even been used against people we now consider white.
Also, Trump fans will not care. They will defend anything he says, any stance he takes. Mainly, they'll do this because they are racist, too, & that's why the vast majority of them voted for him. In fact, the only people who didn't vote for Trump out of pure racism - even though they were fine with racism regardless - have long since given up on him before this. This may shave off a few of the bootlickers, but most of the people with a shred of decency have long since began demanding Democrats to kiss their ass.
If & when he gets nailed in the Epstein business, they will totally defend raping children. You know they will. They will be fine with it. They will be down with it. They will tell "heartwarming" stories about how their granddad raped their grandmother when she was 13, so it was all good. And believe you me, once that dime does drop, there's going to be a whole lot of conservative pundits & politicians airing their dirty laundry, & both doctrinaire Republicans & Never Trumpers will pooh-pooh it away.
Seriously, you think this is the first time a Hispanic woman has been told to go back to where she came from even though she was born in the borough she represents? Get out of town.
Anyhow. Decent enough day. Got a lot of rain but, again, TS Barry turned out to not be that big a deal. Communed with the front yard & didn't sleep the day away. And that's about that.
