T: Hey J, how deep is Trump’s foot in it this time? He called the Floyd protesters thugs. The Floyd protest isn’t a thug movement, is it? I mean, Trump does the ‘thinly veiled racist comment’ thing all the time, but that’s a very thin veil.
J: At any other time and any other place, with any other voting base, that could literally end his chances of getting any non-racist votes.
T: But today, after four years of carpet-bombing the public with thinly veiled racist comments, it might not even be news.
Do you think this one sticks?
J: In the current environment it’s hard to say… there’s so much shit going down that it might get lost in the storm.
Speaking of shit, I really, seriously think that Trump’s cheese is sliding off his cracker, to coin a phrase. The dude is losing it, mentally. And it’s scary to watch, because his base still supports him even as he goes off the deep end.
T: Did he really threaten to shoot protesters?
J: He said something like “when the looting starts, the shooting starts.” That goes back to some cracker mayor in 1967 Georgia, I think.
T: Lovely, quoting racists past.
