2. An apology would be meaningless.

He'll never grasp that what he said was wrong and why.

6. So, you allow yourself to be used by the party of white racists, accept their

"support", make no comment when Trump said neo-nazis and klansmen were "fine people" and now you are shocked---just shocked---to hear their him say you, your parents and all people of color came from "shitholes".

Trump is a racist asshole, to be sure, but I'm having a rough time working up much sympathy for you.

8. And, Ms. Love

it's only gonna get worse.

What are you going to do the next time he does something hateful (countdown in 3...2...1...)? Clutch your pearls again?

Face it, lady, you have no leverage and he has no shame to get him to stop.

12. The White House has already commented

Evening news said the W.H. says Trump's comment was about protecting America.

Apparently 'evil doers' come from those "S-hole countries" ?
