how many current Republican members of Congress participated in the 2012 "send Obama back to Kenya" campaign rhetoric? Seems like important context in understanding their stances on Trump's "go back" comments

journalistically, are we allowed to call this a lie, or do we have to leave open the possibility that Steve Scalise has legitimately forgotten everything that happened from 2008-2016?

as the last of the minorities is loaded on the buses to the camps, a stern faced Brit Hume approaches the small scrum of reporters permitted to document this dark day. "Technically..." he begins, opening his well-worn copy of Websters

every single black and brown reporter: that was wild racist white reporter: a highly inflammatory remark some say may be infused with the aftertaste of racialized animus

the reason the media is so cowardly about calling racist things racist is because the people writing the articles and talking on tv and calling the shots in MSM newsrooms can more closely relate to be accusing of racism than of having been its victim send tweet

The president implied that because they are black and brown the congresswomen he was attacking are not real Americans - this is a time-tested staple of American racism. American racism 101
