    Is it really a strawman to say the left often calls Trump a racist?

    I'll take this as your personal admission that Trump is not a racist. Thanks for your input.

    What is your criteria for proof? My late mother used to tell me a man is known by the company he keeps.

    There is that little thing regarding the talking points of his main issue and where they generated from.

    So, what would you call clear and concise? Does he have to been as stupid as to have done or said something overtly racist? Is that the only way to prove it?

    He only became racist because he's POTUS. Progs lie, it's their livelihood.

    I only know of one instance where Trump demonstrated racism. Supposedly he discriminated against blacks for condos some time ago. It wouldn't be the first time property owners discriminated to protect their own pocket-books. This kind of thing happens everyday.

    Matter of fact, Democrats exercise segregation all the time.California is a great example, and it's government policy.

    He sure did, and he got called on the carpet by the government, and during a break he said to the government investigator "come on Elyse -- you don't want to live with them either". And then he agreed to fix the discrimination, and then he broke that agreement and got taken to court again.

    But that's got nothing to do with "happens every day". Therefore what? Deflection FAILS.

    I didn't make the claim, Evelyn Wood. The OP did. I have no way to know whether Rump is a racist, or just race-baiting. Neither does the OP and neither do you. That requires getting into Rump's mind, and that is a cesspool I don't have a wet suit for.

    Every human has a element of racism in them. The question should be is his level more than the average human and to me no...

    It's not only a strawman given no citation, it's also a Collective Fallacy.

    There is nothing "the left" or "the right" or "the middle" does as a unit. That's just lunacy.
