A group of 2020 Democrats have called President Trump a "white supremacist," an extraordinary charge at an extraordinary moment in American politics.
Why it matters ... This is a big shift from calling the president a white nationalist. Check out Merriam-Webster's definition of white supremacist: "a person who believes that the white race is inherently superior to other races and that white people should have control over people of other races."
Elizabeth Warren told the New York Times "without hesitation" that Trump gave white supremacists aid and comfort. "Heâ€™s done the wink and a nod," she said. "He has talked about white supremacists as fine people. Heâ€™s done everything he can to stir up racial conflict and hatred in this country."
Beto O'Rourke told MSNBC Trump made it "very clear" that he's a white supremacist.
Well I guess weâ€™ll have to hear lies until the truth comes. There must be concrete, verifiable and tangible proof El Presidente Trump is racist. Until then I refuse to listen to any race baiting slander. Pro. 6:16-19.
These same folk will want to shut down Major League Baseball for having too white an audience! Have you watched any games and noticed that 99 percent of the fans in the stands are white? You might think they were gathered there for a White Power Rally after the games.

Ridiculous, isn't it? The very ones who are using mainstream media to do the accusing, don't even believe it themselves. The race card is all they have left, after all else has failed, and failed miserably. There isn't any evidence, other than Trump's comments that they contort out of context to build a case that, once again, doesn't even exist.
No evidence, but since impeachment failed miserably, they're now throwing their hail Mary pass in an effort to sway public opinion to dethrone him in 2020. I think they're helping him at this point, because people are exhausted with their nonsense, and they've finally exposed who they've always been, and it's pretty ugly.

How do you see it, and what are the consequences?
I think I disagree with the president on that one.
You just look at who he's attacking. It's one African-American or one person of a color after another. It's not dog whistle anymore. It's just straight-up human whistle.
And so it is just pulling at this racial thing over and over and over again. And I don't know how it how much it affects people. I really don't know. I know people don't like political correctness. And when he does that, I think people really get a charge out of that.
But going to clearly racist tropes goes well beyond it. We're walking into Father Coughlin territory. We're walking into George Wallace territory. We're walking into very ugly territory.
And if this is what this election is going to become about, then it becomes, I would think, hard for people of conscience, whether they like Trump's economic policy or not, to wind up with him in however many months Election Day is....

They stand for nothing, they offer nothing, they have nothing. No policy, no solutions, no anything. So they, being grown-up schoolchildren, but less intelligent, call names. When the names don't work, call another, even worse name. Their shamelessness is disgusting. You agree with them. What does that make you?
