DONALD TRUMP IS CHANGING HIS CAMPAIGN SLOGAN TO PROVE HE’S NOT RACIST

Source: Vanity fair

After a week of nonstop criticism from Democrats and Republicans alike for comments many condemned as racially charged, Donald Trump claims to be altering his campaign to be a little more inclusive. While the presumptive G.O.P. has long promised to “make America great again,” Trump now says he’s adding two words to slogan to illustrate just how non-racist he really is.

“You know, I have the theme ‘make America great again,’ and I've added a couple of things,” Trump announced to supporters at a campaign rally in Richmond, Virginia, on Friday night. “Right now I’m adding make America great again—I’m adding ‘for everyone,’ because it’s really going to be for everyone. It’s not going to be for a group of people, it’s going to be for everyone. It’s true.”

The allegedly amended slogan, which has yet to appear on any official signage or Trump merchandise, comes after the presidential candidate spent the first half of June repeatedly denouncing Gonzalo Curiel, the federal judge of Mexican heritage presiding over the Trump University class action lawsuit, as inherently biased against him. (Curiel was born in Indiana.) His comments were widely condemned by the Washington political establishment, including Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, who suggested he may be an idiot, and House Speaker Paul Ryan, who called Trump’s statement the “textbook definition of a racist comment.”

2. That may cause him more trouble

For Trump supporters, "great again" means a return to the days when they could be more overt with their racism like Trump.

36. They'll explain it away as Trump just joking

They're always ready to say that what he says doesn't mean anything just after saying that he says it like it is.

Evidently jumping from the one brain cell in their skull to the only other one isn't very difficult.

6. Well, that should fool the blacks, latinos, women, poor, middle class, muslim

and every other group he's insulted.
They will all just forget everything he ever said.

Unless, unless - someone recorded him saying that stuff and it can be replayed in commercials.

21. Hear, hear!

Trump doesn't make me ashamed to be a white guy. He makes me ashamed to be a human.

But like I keep saying, everyone whom Trump has targeted plus me equals a landslide for Hillary Clinton.

As long as they are white males!

His followers will just read between the lines (yeah right) and everyone else will know it is BS.

Yep, that's the depth of thought of him and his ilk. Fortunately, not nearly the majority is so shallow and stupid.

That must mean Trump isn't a racist, misogynist, homophobic, xenophobic asshole after all!

And the new slogan will still fit on a bumper sticker. A bit crowded, but hey!

15. Reminds me of the Viva Bush bumper stickers.

Which did indeed have some success - until Hispanic voters discovered that sub-prime lenders had been specifically targeting them, and with the approval (if not outright encouragement) of Bush-era regulators.

17. Well, now he's got my vote. That solves all of his problems.

Wait, except that he has so far outrightly insulted

The Disabled, Women, Asians, Blacks, Latinos, Veterans, Gays, Muslims, Jews, Catholics, Immigrants, Scientists, Journalists, etc.

Also, the phrase "make America great again for everybody" isn't effective. It still doesn't answer the question of when was America great for everybody?

Most of my large family are older, white, rich republicans. I am a liberal democrat. I've asked them what they think of this election. Nobody in my family is voting for Trump. They can't stand him.

Oh well. Maybe he can use them to panhandle after his entire "empire" comes crashing down.

35. Hope Media stay all over this

I predict most Trumpistas won't update their signs, which will become something media will now report on, and ask about, at every rally. The explanations for not updating the slogan from his racist base base will be fascinating.
