    If there is a tread on this, please merge mods.

    So I came across this story and "outrage" over Trump's tweet about Elizabeth Warren entering the race.

    "Today Elizabeth Warren, sometimes referred to by me as Pocahontas, joined the race for President. Will she run as our first Native American presidential candidate, or has she decided that after 32 years, this is not playing so well anymore? See you on the campaign TRAIL, Liz!"

    https://www.usatoday.com/story/news...en-campaign-trail-tears-reference/2826768002/

    Now people are pissed because they believe he is alluding to the "Trail of Tears" by placing "TRAIL" in all caps.

    Personally, I hate leftist scum, but assuming this is what Trump meant, I have to say this was out of line and very wrong.

    Others are saying he meant the "Campaign Trail" but I think that's a stretch.

    What are your thoughts?

    Inappropriate?

    Racist?

    or manufactured outrage by the left?

    If he meant that, it's funny, but he shouldn't have said it.

    Sometimes Trump's trash talk is wrong.

    I think Trump does a dog whistle everyonce in a while. I don't know about this case, but remember when the muslim congress woman said "impeach the motherfucker"? He went on about how she had "dishonored her family". I.e. Muslim honor killings...

    I posted a link to it.

    For some bizarre reason I can't cut and paste Tweets from Twitter from this PC

    I doubt he knows what the Trail of Tears was. Just people waiting around on Twitter, waiting to trigger themselves, as they are addicted to rage porn.

    If this was ANY other right-wing asshole, I would say "yeah, that's the only way to construe that insult."

    But it's Trump. And he's a moron. And that's way, way, way, way, way, way, way, way, way, way, way, way,way, way, way, way, way, way, way, way,way, way, way, way too nuanced a joke for a moron like him to think up, even if it's not that nuanced or witty at all. I doubt he even knows what the Trail of Tears is. He was probably making a really forced and lame reference to her trailing him in votes or some shit.

    Trump: he's a racist piece of shit, but let's not pretend he has any more than the intelligence of an eight year old.

    Clearly meant the “campaign trail”. But liberals will desperately try to find something to be offended about.

    This expert on IQ thinks Trump is "well above average" and highly accomplished in multiple complex domains. The host says his detractors are just engaging in "lazy thinking".

    Honestly, I doubt Trump knows enough history for that reference to be intentional.

    See, I was willing to give the President the benefit of the doubt, and then Trump Jr. posted on Instagram, "Savage!!! Love my President."

    The "savage" comment...seems to be on the same spectrum as "trail of Tears."

    I'm not sure if this is Dog Whistle $hit, or they inadvertently are making references to Native Americans...

    but I'm not down with this, at all.

    This is hilarious. The media, just like in 2016, is all up in arms with phony outrage.

    LOL

    This just in: Charlatan Panders to Morons Making Him Rich and Famous. More at 10.

    "He's very, very smart. Perhaps the smartest president we've seen in terms of smartness."

    Well, proffessor, you're waiting for proof that meets your threshold of unacceptable racism. Given that you're one of, if not the most virulent racist on this forum, you will not find it. For us adults in the room, his record of racial housing discrimination, his constant lies about and references to Latino immigrants being (mostly) violent criminals, his referring to black countries as shit holes, his dishonest fear mongering about inner cities, and his general policy record on issues of disenfranchisement, poverty, and racial discrimination protection are pretty, pretty decisive.

    Yeesh. Again, this would be open and closed if we weren't dealing with a comedy of morons. I mean....you've seen this clown car's operation in the Russia probe. It's hilarious how stupid they are.
