why in the world are we still asking this question in 2019?
Trump: says and does racist things.
People: call Trump racist.
Journalists and politicians:
Ok but like
There’s no benefit in her going on live television and saying Trump is a racist without elaborating on the subject
What he’s asking is a leading question and sure, taking his ‘how can you say that’ out of context works well to make him seem like he supports Trump but that’s not how it was said in the interview. How it was said was to get her to continue to talk about why Trump is a racist
Don’t believe me? Skip ahead in this video to 0:15 seconds and listen to the entire thing in context.
She then goes on to ELABORATE on how he uses dogwhistles and his reaction to Charlottesville (by calling Nazi’s fine people) so people who tune in to the interview can draw connections to what she’s saying as opposed to just reacting, like op did, to the exact words that are said.
I think too many people on here fail to realize that news, real news, isn’t done by just saying shit. You have to be able to back it up and in order to do so, you need to be able to spell something out for people who don’t get it. And someone who already has been criticized by people for her views (including by people on here, bizarrely, because they keep things she’s said out of context) need to be able to get all the information out there.
