It isn’t that Donald Trump does not say things that are cringe-worthy. It’s that his opponent, Hillary Rodham Clinton, says and does things even more cringe-worthy. So forgive those who feel that Trump’s supposedly “outrageous” statements are nothing more than selective outrage, double standards, and the typical “Republicans are racist” meme. Democrats routinely say vulgar, bigoted, divisive, outrageous things while getting a toll-free pass.
It wasn’t Donald Trump, but Donna Brazile, then Al Gore’s campaign manager, who said Republicans have a "white-boy attitude."
It wasn’t Donald Trump, but Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill of Missouri, who said, after Hurricane Katrina, "George (W.) Bush let people die on rooftops in New Orleans because they were poor and because they were black."
It wasn’t Donald Trump, but Vice President Joe Biden, who, before a mostly black audience, criticized then-Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney and Republican resistance to Wall Street regulation, saying: “He’s going to let the big banks once again write their own rules – unchain Wall Street! They’re going to put y’all back in chains!”
What exactly did Trump say? He said, “Hillary wants to abolish, essentially abolish, the Second Amendment. … And if she gets to pick her judges – nothing you can do, folks. Although the Second Amendment people – maybe there is, I don’t know.”
We are seeing major attempts to rework Trump’s words into meanings that had little to do with reality.
All this in an effort to sway voters that Trump said other than what he had. Trump has enough problems with his own verbalization without the filter from the left and the right trying to undermine him.
