The fact that despite what is "proven", that many of trumps followers don't care and think it's the media against him (as he continues to say). Don't believe your lying eyes. Soon, Trump will start off his own media outlet to get his message out there. That sounds crazy, but that is what his twitter is a prelude to.
I don't think it's crazy, I think it's genius. I would if I were him. What he is doing is calculated and smart, and not that "unprofessional"--not any more so than giving a public speech, or speaking over the radio--methods of message delivery change, no matter how much I sometimes don't like the "Twitter" method. I applaud his treatment of the media, and how he handles his Twitter. For true or false, better or worse, it gives him the feeling of having the common touch, and wanting to reach out to the public directly, without someone interpreting his words for him. That's a positive.
The more you and the Left freak about the small stuff Herschel, the more I think you will will marginalize yourselves, and give appearance to just being bitter contrarians in the eyes of the people in the middle. It will make successfully opposing his less popular policies much more difficult.
I hear what you are saying, in the general sense, and while I am not even a big fan of Hillary, her unfortunate comment was directed not at you or a general Trump/Republican/anti-Hillary voter. It was directed to the initial base, back when he was polling st 35% of republicans and he had his crowd of alt-righters and other over the top, race baiting and sexists that were grabbing headlines in the news. The shut that ***** up crowd and Obama is a money and the birthers. It became a rallying cry because it was a generic comment which is ridiculous because no politician should be insulting any of the voting public (though Trump can call his opponents idiots with no problem).
So, in concept, I believe that the racists and sexists and people who are like that are deplorable. It's unfortunate that many republicans have to align themselves with these people, but then they created a false narrative implying that she meant all Trump voters. Not that it matters anymore, but the wearing it as a badge is absurd to me.
Yeah. You see, Hilary just put much more poetically what was already being said for the last 8 years about all of us who didn't agree with Obama's policies and politics: If you don't agree with [Democratic Candidate] it's because you're a racist / sexist and you are evil. This was said regularly, even in my very deep red town, in a very deep red state. And I, and many others grew very tired of it. Till at some point, early adopters such as myself just said, "Sure. If not agreeing with a black man's ideas, because I think they're bad ideas is racist, then I'm racist. I'll own it." This mentality grew, and grew, and then enter the beautiful "Deplorable" soundbite, and we had a meme that could alter reality itself.
We're all Deplorables now. We're all racists now. We're all sexists now. If that's how it is, those words have no real meaning. They may as well all just be synonyms for "human". (You didn't necessarily do this, I'm just pointing out what was a regular trope of the last 8 years)
This is to be expected. What else do you expect, when schools are teaching kids to hate themselves because they are racist due to the skin of their birth
? That all men are sexist pigs? That we live under a Patriarchy that keeps women down? That minorities can't be racists or bigots? That women can't be sexist?
The Left created this situation long before Hilary. I don't blame her for it.
