The worst part is that both him and Rubio try to frame it as the family leaving because of Castro which obviously isn't even the case. Rubio's mother went back all the time, in fact, and even wanted the family to move back to Cuba...

I'm not surprised that is something they'd play up. I always had the impression that both were descended from the former Cuban elite.

It's hard to even describe how absolutely disgusting and moronic this rhetoric is, and it's not just confined to the US. We've had similar rhetoric from some politicians and commentators in Australia. Frankly, the supporters of these people are terrible human beings. There's no other way to put it.

I don't know, this sort of inflammatory rhetoric has a habit of playing well.

You have to hand it to him, he knows his base.

"That sort of racial disparity isn't uncommon: Of the 3,021 homicides of white people in 2014, 82% were committed by white people, while 15% of the offenders were black. The figures Trump retweeted inaccurately stated that 81% of white homicide victims are killed by blacks."

So Trump is doubling down on his 9/11 claim now. He's basically gone full blown racist and xenophobe. So the question is; is the racist vote on the right big enough to get him the nomination? Will anyone on the right step up?

OR is Trump doubling down so to lose momentum? There were many that believed he never really wanted this to begin with, is he trying to find his way out?

I think the best part of this is that Ben Carson is now insisting that he too saw that same video of "thousands" of Muslims in Jersey cheering the towers coming down. Even though it has been thoroughly debunked. You can't make this stuff up.

Between grain storage, not knowing who wrote the constitution, now this, and the other numerous misunderstandings of basic facts he might just be the dumbest candidate running for president in decades. Neurosurgeons around the world are :facepalm: embarrassed.

What would he have to gain from a half-hearted presidential run, though? He had enough notoriety as it was, and it's a damn expensive joke if he was just testing people's patience intentionally.

I haven't been following it too closely, so forgive me if it has been mentioned already.

I seem to recall a video of some celebrations somewhere in the Middle East. Not sure where. Could Trump be thinking about that and mistaking it for New Jersey? It's an easy mistake to make, I guess.

IDK, it just seems like we're getting punked.
