Trump stated, "I'll tell you who the real racists are, those four intentionally non-white congresswomen who called me racist. Only racists would call other people racists so I'm calling them out as racists," Trump insisted in an accelerated circular logic that caused even adviser Kellyanne "Alternate Facts" Conway to become nauseous.
Trump speaks to, and uses for his own purposes, the darkness that can overtake us when we are confronted with the stress and fears of rapid change. One manifestation of that darkness is racism.

Trump hadS spent 60 days at his course in Northern Virginia, 59 days at Bedminster and 57 days at his resort in West Palm Beach. He has also visited his courses in Los Angeles; Doral, Florida; Jupiter, Florida; Scotland and Ireland ― all on the taxpayer dime. AND IT IS A VERY LARGE DIME.

Both Clinton and Biden have since, apologized for their votes for H.J. Res. 114 because they did not think at the time that President Bush would use it as an excuse to invade Iraq. The irony is that now the vote is being used against President Obama's vice president in the same manner he used it against his 2008 primary opponent.
Joe Biden voted for most of the things Hillary Clinton voted for when they were both in the Senate, but Clinton was accused of being every negative thing anyone could think of for those votes.
The imperfections of a democracy tend to be known to all who participate in it and more often than not, disregard those little imperfections because they are constantly hit with a barrage of rhetoric to confuse and conquer.
