12. He didn't just use the word lynch. He said a lynching party
What is the number one thing you think of when you hear the words "lynching party"? What were the main organized lynchings carried out in groups or as parties in this country? To me, it's the organized activities of the Night Riders, the Ku Klux Klan and the whites in the South who carried out hundreds of lynchings to keep black people in line and intimidated. That's what lynching parties were.

He might as well have said "Michelle, don't make me grab my white sheet and hood." If he wasn't aware of the history of what a lynching party means, then he's got to be the most reckless and ignorant SOB in the media.
