Whether he thought of it, or someone brought the idea to him, they probably laughed and laughed. They thought this was a total OWN of African-Americans.

This one has legs. It will take off in their own little world. Tshirts. Memes. Rally chants. See it coming a mile away.

It is a very well known thing the alt-right use. It started on TheDonald subreddit to circumvent the TOS, and continued after they were deplatformed.

Again, he is saying the nword. This is a well known usage.

And on twitter there's posters typing "rigger lover", "I hate riggers", and "I can't believe he went there". He knows exactly what's he doing like when he used the Star of David to denigrate Hillary's large donors. He's a bigot to his very marrow.

Saying "riggers" in the context of his statement about "rigged" elections is a very Trump thing to do.

Hell no!

It’s always worst than it even seems with him.

If it seems like it might be racist, it is.
If it sounds like it might be a threat, it is.
If he is accusing someone of something, he himself has actually done the thing.

random words and fragments float around in the empty spaces and sometimes they meet and form what passes for thought. He could have thought he was being clever and slipping a pejorative past his critics. Or he couldn't spell "manipulators". Anyway, his posts are for his core base, which doesn't go in for big words or nuanced thought.

So yes, but a qualified yes.

I don't think he was ever going to actually use N****r, but I think he's constantly appealing to the worst of his base and playing cute by having them think of the word.

The only people who might actually feel hurt by his outbursts and racist nicknames are the handful of black magats who support him.

The rest of us are pretty much at the "please proceed, asshole" stage. This won't help his case. If anything, he'll be looking at more felonies.

As far as the target he's putting on African Americans, especially in the Atlanta metro area--this has been the case his entire presidency and beyond. I have to take extra precautions especially when I'm in rural counties. I've advised all my friends and family, especially those living in Fulton county, to cover the county name on their car tags with the optional "in God we trust" stickers.

Then his poll numbers will rise, and it will be used in every speech. He will re establish the verboten word as commonplace for a large percentage of the country.

I know some of these people - They want to say it so bad.
