Donald Trump‘s 2016 Presidential campaign (“Make America white again”) was blatantly racist from the get-go. Everyone knew that, said that. And yet the MSM is all riled and outraged about Trump’s “shithole countries” quote. Nobody wants to normalize this kind of talk or terminology, and we’d all like to think that the explicit nature of the quote will sway undecided voters later this year. But deep down, I suspect, a sizable sector of down-home Americans probably aren’t grossly offended, and a good percentage of the offendees are probably more repelled by a sitting U.S. president using the word “shit” than anything else.
