I want to ignore Trump so desperately, so as to not feed this orange fascist any oxygen – but his comments over the last 24 hours are just so deeply offensive and so below not just the the office of President, but basic civil courtesy that one must cry out at his hate.
This constant cacophony of base racism defended with a ludicrous sophistry to try and justify and excuse the base racism is an audacity and affront to anyone with basic reading skills.
Telling People of Colour to go back to where they came from is the very example used when defining racism, Trump is targeting these women of colour who have been righteously critical of America in an attempt to channel broader male resentment towards women having more voice and more space to express their truth.
My fear is that it is a cruel and divisive tactic that will benefit Trump enormously.
Trump supporters seem to derive energy not from Trump’s offensive rhetoric but from the explosion of rage from liberals responding to his bile.
The secret to Trumps win is that it’s fuelled by resentment not an ideology.
