The Trumpus: U.S. must "start thinking about" racial profiling

Donald Trump: U.S. must "start thinking about" racial profiling

Donald Trump said Sunday that in the wake of the mass shooting in Orlando, it's time for the United States to start looking at racial profiling as a preventative tactic.

"Well I think profiling is something that we're going to have to start thinking about as a country," the presumptive GOP nominee said in a phone interview with CBS' "Face the Nation. "Other countries do it, you look at Israel and you look at others, they do it and they do it successfully. And I hate the concept of profiling but we have to start using common sense and we have to use our heads."

"It's not the worst thing to do," he added.

Trump's comments come one week after 49 people were shot and killed in a gay nightclub in Orlando, the deadliest mass shooting in U.S. history. Following the massacre, Trump renewed his calls for a temporary ban on Muslims entering the U.S., saying it would have prevented the attack despite the fact that shooter Omar Mateen was born in the U.S.

1. OK, lets start with saying that Cheeto Jesus's are a clear and present danger to our country...

And should be watched very very carefully.

(FYI, the Google gives some conflicting answers to the plural of Jesus. Jesus' or Jesuses or Jesus's???)

4. "MUSLIM" ISN'T A RACE YOU FUCKING IDIOT!!!

If you try to "racially profile" Muslims the terrorist groups will just choose, say, White and Asian Muslims to do attacks.
