They just can’t call spades, spades(sic), even as the GOP gets closer to copping to what has always been obvious about Trump, that he is neither charged nor infused. Nor is his racism cosmetic.

Sen. David Perdue (R-Ga.) said on Monday that it’s “outrageous” to call President Trump‘s tweets telling four Democratic congresswomen of color to “go back” to their countries racist.
“That’s outrageous. Of course they’re not racist,” Perdue, a close Trump ally who is up for reelection in 2020, said when a reporter noted that some used that term to describe the president’s rhetoric.
Perdue’s comments came after Trump sparked widespread backlash among Democrats as well as a growing number of Republicans when he targeted a group of unidentified progressive congresswomen “who originally came from countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe.”
