    Let's skip ahead on this one to save some time

    "Trail has many meanings. I don't think he meant anything by that, but if he did, that's bad."

    1. “The U.S. has become a dumping ground for everybody else’s problems. When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best. They’re not sending you. They’re sending people that have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those problems with us. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And some, I assume, are good people.” — June 16, 2015
    2. “I’ve read hundreds of books about China over the decades. I know the Chinese. I’ve made a lot of money with the Chinese. I understand the Chinese mind.” — May 2011
    4. “I have people that have been studying [Obama’s birth certificate] and they cannot believe what they’re finding… I would like to have him show his birth certificate, and can I be honest with you, I hope he can. Because if he can’t, if he can’t, if he wasn’t born in this country, which is a real possibility…then he has pulled one of the great cons in the history of politics.” — April 7, 2011
    5. “All of the women on The Apprentice flirted with me — consciously or unconsciously. That’s good to be expected.” — March 24, 2004
    6. “I have a great relationship with the blacks.” — April 14, 2011
    7. “While @BetteMidler is an extremely unattractive woman, I refuse to say that because I always insist on being politically correct.” — Oct. 28, 2012

    This is true, namely the campaign trail. That said, he doesn't need to continue with the Pocahontas moniker. He's made his point.

    Dude kept asking for someone to post the offensive comments by Trump because he was too scared to google them himself. He knew what he was going to find. When you attempt to stall/play dumb in order to protect someone, that is the true form of worship. :lol:

    As you have long said in every single case, whether it's silly hyperbole or borderline witness intimidation, racially inflammatory rhetoric, calling federal cooperators rats, praising a criminal target under indictment for conspiring to obstruct justice for "not breaking, unlike Michael Cohen", ...

    We get it, you're not going to issue any "criticism" against Trump more forceful than the one you initially gave for silly hyperbole. Why even bother at this point?

    The hyperbolic nature is in reference to the tweets that he "could" do better with. As noted, this is also a tweet he also should have done better with. And I did not hesitate to criticize him on it.

    "Jeb Bush likes illegals because of his wife."
    "That must be a pretty picture, you dropping to your knees." Many women who have appeared on The Apprentice have spoken publicly about Trump's treatment of them, saying that while on the show, he allowed male candidates to rate their attractiveness and sex appeal. In a 2013 episode of Celebrity Apprentice: All-Stars, Bret Michaels recounted to Trump how Brande Roderick (a former Playboy model), in trying to demonstrate how much she didn't want to be eliminated, got on her knees and said, "I want to do this." Trump responded, "Excuse me, you dropped to your knees? That must have been a pretty picture, you dropping to your knees."
    "You know, it doesn't matter what the media writes as long as you've got a young and beautiful piece of ***." Trump made that lovely claim in a 1991 interview with Esquire.
    "You know, it doesn't matter what the media writes as long as you've got a young and beautiful piece of ***." Trump made that lovely claim in a 1991 interview with Esquire.
    "You won't see another black president for generations." In 2014, Trump blamed President Obama for "poor race relations" in the U.S., tweeting: "Sadly, because president Obama has done such a poor job as president, you won't see another black president for generations!"

    That she lied about her native american ancestry. It drew attention to that fact. And, she has been having to defend it as a result.

    'I'm a negotiator like you folks'
    The previous week, Trump addressed the Republican Jewish Coalition on Dec. 3, calling himself "a negotiator like you folks," one of many Jewish stereotypes the Manhattan real-estate mogul dropped throughout his speech.

    “Is there anyone in this room who doesn’t negotiate deals?” he joked. “Probably more than any room I’ve ever spoken.” He also generated some boos for not answering whether he would support moving the U.S. embassy in Israel to Jerusalem from its current location in Tel Aviv.

    'Laziness is a trait in blacks'

    “I have black guys counting my money. … I hate it," Trump told John R. O'Donnell, the former president of Trump Plaza Hotel & Casino, according O'Donnell's account in his 1991 book "Trumped!" "The only guys I want counting my money are short guys that wear yarmulkes all day."

    I just didn't know which comment was being referenced. As you can tell by the current listing of comments, he says a lot of things that people find offensive.

    Who is y'all? And I am not a huge fan of starbucks. Or as many call it, "charbucks." I do like to grind coffee beans and use a french press when I have the time.
