Both mentioned at the start but have dropped won the list thanks to even worse statements.

Ah, I missed "----hole countries" in the list, but that's too brief; it misses the reason it's so disgusting. What he was saying is that anyone unfortunate enough to be born in such a country was automatically undesirable -- straight up racist stereotyping regardless of the state of those countries.

The problem with this thread is that 10 is far too small a number!

Exactly. I could count off 10 within the first week of his campaign. If I sat down and worked out a list, I'm sure I could tic off a hundred in a short period of time.

That's because there are so many distinct categories!

My list would favor the category of utterances that generally come from the mouths of dictator thugs. The calls for violence against people whose only "crime" is to oppose Trump. Labeling the media as "enemy of the people". Etc.

I'm kind of seeing collusion and coercion with/of other countries to help his election prospects as kind if the same thing. Ukraine, Russia count as one to me.

No President was ever perfect. Trump needs to think before he says anything. Shoving people out of the way no. I don't approve. What I do approve of is his handling of Americas Economy and the way he puts America first. A lot of countries fit his description although he should not have come out and said it.

Trump has strengthened our military. He is a better leader than Obama ever hoped to be. Obama seemed to love every nation in the world that openly hated the United States. Hillary and Slick Willie are way more immoral than Trump and while Trumps admittedly crass comments about women are bad they are nothing compared to Billy Clinton going to an Island possibly to have sex with very young and underaged girls.

Truman once said If Nixon that he was a shifty-eyed GD son of a b---h. Presidents cuss and do things that are not according to Hoyle. Why single out Trump?

What has he done? His trade war doesn't seem to be helping anything. Probably falls short of disgusting, though soy bean farmers and others may disagree.

Disclosing US intelligence sources to a strategic opponent (Putin) doesn't seem like strengthening the US military.

Instigating a trade war with China doesn't seem like helping the economy.

I get that you don't like the Clintons, but I don't see why you think Hilary is more immoral than trump.

Because he makes racist comments. And keeps making them. And has been making racist comments for decades. And backs them up with racist policies.

Also is being a racist a bit like being in Highlander, where there can be only one?

Otherwise we can't say Trump is racist.

It really does show a total paucity of defence when the best you can come up with is "Trudeau's a racist".

Aside from the logical fallacy, it's already been noted that it's quite possible to have racists both sides of the border. Also, the thread's not about Trudeau.

It's a good thing Obama left such a strong, robust economy that thrives despite Trump's economy-wrecking policies. It is looking like things are starting to deteriorate. Even the biggest mountains can be cut in half with trickle-down stream of Republican policies.

Trump supporters pretend that Trump isn't racist because it helps them feel that it hides their own racism. They don't mention the racist things Trump and Trump's father have done.
  • Redlining black people from renting.
  • Calling for the death penalty of acquitted black people.
  • Praising Nazis.

Racism is discrimination based on ethnic chauvinism and xenophobia, so yes, Trump is an obvious racist. Nothing anyone else in the world does changes or excuses that. That's how it works in my mind, but then I'm not trying to excuse myself for voting for a race-baiting demagogue.

It's the Law of Conservation of Racism. The total amount of racism in the world never increases or decreases, so if someone is revealed to be more racist, it means that someone else is less racist.

I think tiny-hands Donny has been looking at this thread and has decided the current top five aren't really up to the standard of revulsion we should all have for him, so has brought up two new contenders in a couple of days.

Re-Tweeting this statement:

Quote:
If the Democrats are successful in removing the President from office (which they will never be), it will cause a Civil War like fracture in this Nation from which our Country will never heal.”
And coming up with this gem all on his own: arrest the House intelligence chair for treason.

(I'm presuming he Tweets so much from his phone because his tiny hands make it easy)
