    I'm not playing dumb and I know who he is.
    But not every damn thing he says is horrible or should be taken as horrible....Minnesota is also full of Scandinavian/German people whose grandparents came to this country to farm...or what some refer to as salt-of-the-earth people. There's as good or better a chance that was what his gene comment referred to.
    gotta love 'referential' treatment

    Iím going to continue to believe the you donít actually think he was referring to the superiority of German genetics but intended no racial inference. I think you should draw a line

    I'm not saying to flip on the guy, you can still overall support him, but that's not a troubling thing to say?

    I would need to see Trump try and explain why he said this. I don't think it should simply be up to anyone routinely against Trump (here or media) to conclude what he must have meant.

    I can't support or defend what he said because I don't know what it means.

    using this logic, who is Joe Biden pandering to when he says certain things. he wanted to name a running mate that was a woman, of color.

    I think he values all people not named Trump as equally worthless when they are not specifically doing something for him.

    It's pretty common for politicians to talk up the heritage of the audience ... "You folks are the core of the nation", "Your ability to build things is what keeps this country moving", "The work ethic here is central to the American dream" and such platitudes. Most politicians are just smart enough to not actually say it's genetic.

    Making it specifically genetic and not cultural was a mistake, or it was stupid, or it was racist. There really isn't a take where it wasn't one of those 3 options.

    where did he use the word superior?! all he said was good genes...he could have said that ANYwhere to ANY group...would it have been racist every time?

    I'm not defending his dumb ***....I just have serious issues with the mindset some have developed...and then to read about people thinking it's just good for the country or logical to vote straight ticket when what that means is some good candidates will lose votes and bad candidates will gain them just because they know Trump sucks. Trump has little to do with what goes on within my state legislature, for example.

    Narrowing his choice of running mates to women who are minorities could definitely be seen as pandering to those groups. Trump is pandering to white nationalists. Thatís more frowned upon

    I agree with not voting a party line and Trump not being representative of all Republicans at all. I also stand by my original statement

    What a shock, to see the usual people run in here to defend his statements. Ewing, you asked "where do you draw the line?" the answer is: they don't.

    I agree, they are playing stupid. They're not that dumb, but they have to pretend to be because it's the only way to defend him.

    so even tho I'm not defending him, I'm playing stupid just because I don't automatically assume 'good genes' means 'you beautifully superior white people'?

    First, let's be clear. You have definitely been defending him here. Perhaps you don't think you were.

    Second, The best defense you can make is "maybe he wasn't talking about all white people, maybe he was only talking about German and Scandinavian people", as why he wasn't talking about white people...


    Look, if you truly don't think he meant white people when he happened to talk about genes to a predominantly white crowd in a predominantly white state that has seen protests for black rights after a history of saying racially charged statements, that's on you.

    Perhaps you're not being willfully ignorant then. You're just incredibly naive.

    He didn't call you out by name. You are just assuming you are one of "those people".

    Was I defending him when I said he may just be stupid?
