Trump now claims he’s an agent against antisemitism. Are you not distracted?
This Trumpian noise has the same logic as medical professionals withholding care or service because their ideology, granted legitimacy by various sky-fairies, says they can faithfully reject human rights.annieli

Trump talking about civility (“bad words”), forever rings hollow.
Before the election in @NickPaumgarten's 2015 @newyorker piece about Trump's bankrupting of Atlantic City, he reported managers would clear his casino floors of black staff before Trump arrived. (I presume so he could avoid them.) The boss ordered racism. https://t.co/bgxWLDTK2v https://t.co/U8ENSzUIzi

5. Trump's racism rallies the GOP, but anti-racism also rallies the Dems (getting even Pelosi to lay off the Squad). If the Dems stay united, they can defeat Trump's racism. A more detailed analysis here: https://t.co/CVfNkgLoAz

2/ Trump’s strategy is to excite his base & enrage everyone else.
Is anyone sputtering: “but what about family/Christian values”?
Evangelical values are about the hierarchy: Keeping women in their place.
Sexual exploitation helps with that. See👇 https://t.co/Y1SVwMpMPm

1. The ‘total and complete shutdown’ of Muslims entering the U.S.
In a telephone interview with MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” on Tuesday, Trump summarized his message for Muslims: “We love you, we want to work with you, we want you to turn in the bad ones, we want you to practice vigilance, we know that if you know a lot, in many cases, we want you to turn in the bad ones. We all want to get along. We want to get back to a normal, peaceful life.”
2. ‘I’m a negotiator like you folks’
The previous week, Trump addressed the Republican Jewish Coalition on Dec. 3, calling himself “a negotiator like you folks,” one of many Jewish stereotypes the Manhattan real-estate mogul dropped throughout his speech.
“Is there anyone in this room who doesn’t negotiate deals?” he joked. “Probably more than any room I’ve ever spoken.”
3. ‘the blacks’
“I have a great relationship with the blacks. I’ve always had a great relationship with the blacks,” Trump told Albany’s Talk 1300 in April 2011 as he mulled a run for the presidency at that time, which he did not ultimately pursue.
4. ‘I am the least racist person there is’
In May 2011, Trump pointed to the fact that an African American man, Randall Pinkett, won the fourth season of his NBC show “The Apprentice” as evidence that he is the “least racist person there is.”
5. ‘Laziness is a trait in blacks’
“I have black guys counting my money. … I hate it,” Trump told John R. O’Donnell, the former president of Trump Plaza Hotel & Casino, according O’Donnell’s account in his 1991 book “Trumped!” “The only guys I want counting my money are short guys that wear yarmulkes all day.”
Trump, according to O’Donnell, went on to say, “‘Laziness is a trait in blacks. It really is, I believe that.”
6. ‘a well-educated black’
He continued: “If I were starting off today, I would love to be a well-educated black, because I believe they do have an actual advantage.”
7. ‘They’re rapists … some, I assume, are good people’
“When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best. They’re not sending you. They’re not sending you. They’re sending people that have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those problems with us. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And some, I assume, are good people,”
8. ‘I have thousands of Hispanics that work for me’
“I’m leading in the polls with the Hispanics. I mean, you look at Nevada, I’m leading in the polls with the Hispanics because I produce jobs, and they know it. I have thousands of Hispanics that work for me, my relationships to Hispanics is better than those groups,” he told “Fox and Friends” in an Oct. 19 interview. “Those groups are looking to fundraise; I know all about those groups.”
9. No bones about it
“I don’t have a racist bone in my body,”
10. ‘the Japs’
“Who the f knows? I mean, really, who knows how much the Japs will pay for Manhattan property these days?” he asked in response, using a racial slur for the Japanese.
11. On how to treat women
“You have to treat ’em like shit,” Trump said in the article to friend Philip Johnson, who responded, “You’d make a good mafioso.”
Trump’s response: “One of the greatest.”
12. ‘I cherish women’
Days after sparking outrage by remarking that Fox News debate moderator Megyn Kelly had “blood coming out of her wherever,” a remark he later clarified to mean her nose, Trump tried to play up his positive image with women in an interview with CNN’s Jake Tapper.
13. Rosie O’Donnell, Bette Midler, Arianna Huffington…
“Rosie’s a person that’s very lucky to have her girlfriend. And she better be careful or I’ll send one of my friends over to pick up her girlfriend,” Trump continued. “Why would she stay with Rosie if she had another choice?”
14. ‘When a man leaves a woman’
“When a man leaves a woman, especially when it was perceived that he has left for a piece of ass—a good one!— there are 50 percent of the population who will love the woman who was left.”
15. Golf and marriage
Speaking to The New York Times for an article published in May 2011, Trump likened homosexual relationships to changing tastes in golf equipment.
“A lot of people — I don’t want this to sound trivial — but a lot of people are switching to these really long putters, very unattractive,” he said. “It’s weird. You see these great players with these really long putters, because they can’t sink three-footers anymore. And, I hate it. I am a traditionalist.”
“I have so many fabulous friends who happen to be gay, but I am a traditionalist,” he said.
