Trump Barely Bats An Eye At Birtherism (Etc.) From A Supporter
Jeez, how much crazy is there over there? Birtherism?? Still??? And OBAMA IS TEH MOOSLUM!!!111? How do people with such scrambled plausibility metrics manage to get through life? It's the functional equivalent of insanity. But I suppose its domain is restricted--specifically to politicians they don't like.
And that wasn't even the worst part of the comment. You see Muslims are our big problem, we need to get rid of them, and THEY HAVE TEH SECRET TRAINING CAMPS! RIGHT HERE!! TO KILL US!!!
Then there's Trumpo the Clown, of course, who just keeps making verbal balloon animals without missing a beat... John McCain slid over toward the Dark Side back in 2008...but at least he was willing to correct people at his rallies who started spewing that frothy wingnuttery.
Trump didn't exactly eat up the comment--he made some slightly dismissive meta-comment. But only slightly. It was better than nothing, but just barely.
In the face of this crackpottery, it's probably kinda dumb to mention some minor nonsense on the other side... But apparently Debbie Wasserman-Schultz responded by saying that "Donald Trump's racism knows no bounds." Um. Really? That counts as racism that "knows no bounds"? We've known very different racists, Ms. Wasserman-Schultz and I... (Have I mentioned that I don't care for her very much?)
I hate glimpsing the seedy intellectual underbelly of the U.S. Never fails to depress the crap out of me.
