1. For good measure Trump denies as often as he lies.

The two go together. When Trump is not doing it himself there are a few enablers who will do it for him.

9. Trump rehearsed "Send Her Back" chant

THU, JUL 18TH, 2019
BY JASON EASLEY

The send her back chant that Trump is claiming to disavow was planned at the rally and rehearsed with the crowd by warm-up act Lara Trump ...

Trump’s daughter in law primed the crowd to use this chant during the rally in North Carolina. Trump half-heartedly tried to claim that he didn’t approve of the chant ...

5. So Meadows pivoted from the issue of Trump's open racism to another subject.

Not surprising, and aided by a generally spineless media.

7. "Send her back" -- the official position of the GOP

Jeremy Schulman

... In his speech, Trump blasted Omar and her colleagues for daring to criticize his administration. “If they don’t love it, tell them to leave it,” the president said—though he added that “they can come back.”

Trump also took time to praise North Carolina Rep. Mark Meadows, a right-wing congressman with a history that is particularly relevant to the Republican Party’s embrace of the “send her back” theme. On the stump in 2012, Meadows declared that “we are going to send Mr. Obama home to Kenya or wherever it is”—a reference to the racist birther smear that Trump helped popularize ...

Was Mark leading the chants?

8. Republicans really seem anxious to get off this subject

I think we need to keep asking about it, and get every elected Republican in Washington and across the country on record with how they feel about President Trump and his racist tweets and speeches.

Possible bonus: The issue came up this week before Friday afternoon, so maybe some of the weekend political talk shows will cover President Trump's racism, or at least give it a passing mention.

11. It seems the original idea came from Mark Meadows. Then Lara Trump

rehearsed it with the crowd during her warm-up (as we know from a Republican consultant). Now Mark is out, showing the pre-scripted Act II to the public

12. The same Mark Meadows who winks at sexual assault?

Rep. Mark Meadows [R-NC11]

ethics violation sexual harassment & abuse reprimand resolved

In 2016 Meadows was investigated for retaining an employee through 2015 who did not perform duties after 2014 commensurate with the compensation the employee received. This employee, Mr. West, had been demoted after Meadows learned of West's sexual harassment of other Meadows' staff. Meadows commissioned his own investigation and ignored the recommendation to fire West. Further, Meadows did not seek guidance on whether continuing to pay West was in accordance with House Rules and his separatist approach to keeping West on staff, but away from women staff was effectively discriminatory since it precluded their access to to Meadows. For these reasons, the Committee unanimously voted to reprove Meadows and to require him to repay West's excess two month's salary of $40,625.02.

May. 18, 2016 House Office of Congressional Ethics recommended that the Committee on Ethics further review the allegations

Aug. 17, 2016 House Committee on Ethics published the Office of Congressional Ethics Report and Findings and the member's response.

Nov. 16, 2018 House Committee on Ethics the Committee unanimously voted to issue this Report, which will serve as a reproval of Representative Meadows’ conduct, and to require Representative Meadows to reimburse the U.S. Treasury for the overpayment of Mr. West, in the amount of $40,625.02.
