Birth Of A Nation Redux

Wow. So okay then. Skipping the polite part, Trump and his team of racist cretins from the Trump War Room are going straight-on Nazi out of the gate with their first re-election ad. Titled "I'm On Team Joe!," it shows scary brown guys with many tats, purportedly some of the many MS-13 gang members hiding here - like the thousands of moms and kids in cages - declaring, "Thanks for pledging to not deport us!" Except that, actually, they're prisoners in some Central American jail. But facts - meh. Why settle for racist dog whistles when you can go with a full fear-mongering, hate-on-the-other brass band? Nice work, guys. And we're still eight months away - we can't wait to see what kind of evil scumfuckery you come up with by then. Joaquin Castro: "This is the kind of shit that led to El Paso." "It's the party of racism," from one appalled tweet. "Trump is the arch-racist they will follow off a cliff." On all occasions, listen to Maya Angelou: "When someone shows you who they are, believe them the first time." Also, the despicable 8,746th time.
