    I don't think he's a racist in the Klan or Nazi sense. Very few are.

    I do think he's got some of that low key generalized old guy prejudice in him where he has positive opinions about individuals but maybe not as positive opinions about groups. Something like "I'm not a racist, I love Oprah" but at the same time assuming the black kid is a better basketball player and the Jewish kid is better at chess. That sort of thing.

    I also think he's an elitist but that's pretty common in billionaires.

    Well. He was a democrat up until about 2 1/2 years ago. So I’m gonna say yes.

    If your above the age of 12 and you cry racist you should have your ass stomped. Everyone cries about feelings, **** feelings. Attack him on something with substance, not what you believe is in his heart. The race card **** is for pussies.

    Remove that word from the question and answer it. Trump's question not the OP.

    I've referred to a number of cities in the US as sh!tholes and I can assure you that I'm about as far away as you can get from a racist. This is the problem with the media though; they latch on to very insignificant events and make them out to be cataclysmic. Third world, sh!thole...who really cares in the grand scheme of things?

    I think he was taking about economically depressed places, not places with black people. But who knows. Labeling is fun!

    Remember all the people threatening to leave if Trump got elected?

    How many threatened to move to Haiti? El Salvador? Guatemala? Somalia?

    How many vacation there?

    Film their movies there?

    Have Summer homes there?

    Trump is crass, oafish, thoughtless, inarticulate, etc. I don’t know what he actually said but it seems like he was trying to ask why we don’t have merit-based immigration. That’s not racist in itself. Some countries are hellholes and we seem to be favoring them with our immigration policy.

    Does UF take the best or worst applicants? The first to apply? Anybody that can sneak into a class and grab a desk? Once one student is accepted, does UF automatically admit that student’s parents, siblings, grandparents, cousins, etc.?

    Trump is an embarrassment. It’s easy to take the words of somebody you hate and make assumptions like “that dude’s a racist”.

    Was his statement more or less racist than Obama’s comments about his “typical” White grandmother? How about the bitter people clinging to their bibles and guns?

    Hillary indicted a quarter of this nation as deplorables (racist, sexist, xenophobic, homophobic, etc.).

    How about Keith Ellison’s comments about Israel?

    Jesse and Al?

    Crazy Uncle Joe Biden?

    If it only counts when it’s Trump then you need to take a long look into the mirror.

    Alex.

    Shytholes are shytholes.

    Send me people who are willing to work and contribute from any country. We need worker bees as well as higher educated.

    I'm not sure Sweden is that country. I'd be happier with some hard workers from a shythole than some lazy azz Euro socialists. Of course, I'm just thinking about the economy, not the best place to hunt for my next supermodel wife. I'm not sure what parameter Trump is using but I suspect I know. It doesn't matter, bc his position will change twice a week anyway.

    I'm not sure the lottery makes any sense. It was Teddy Kennedy's baby so you should expect it's fvkked up. However, if they come over here, work for 3 months then get on assistance, we should be able to deport them (not possible now). Over 50 % are on assistance as the program is currently setup up.

    Perhaps rather than handing out green cards (permanent residence) we should first make them come as temporary workers for several years. If they aren't criminals and stay employed, then we consider making them permanent.

    We also sure as hell need to get rid of 2.5 year citizenship for permanent residents. They can often get arrested they first day they arrive and every few months thereafter and not be deported.

    Moving the the conditional status for mail order brides should also be extended. Only a fool even thinks even the tiniest fraction of these are legit.

    Standing at the Rio Grande river in El Paso, you can see a sprawling shanty town running up the slope of a mountain in Mexico. It's a shythole. Driving through South Chicago you see a wasteland shythole. The world has shytholes aplenty.

    The boys at CNN like Don Lemon and Anderson Cooper obviously love it up their sh** hole.
