63. There's also a very strong possibility that they yearn for him to wipe "that" out of the history

books. The fact that, for eight years, there was a black guy in the Oval Office and he wasn't the janitor.

Yet, meantime, this vulgar deceitful orange oaf saying all kinds of vulgar deceitful shit, in public, gets only tsk-tsk'd about it and suffers no serious consequences for it - and in effect, MAKING IT OKAY. Now you CAN say any old offensive nasty sexist racist misogynist thing you feel like saying (that you feel deep down in your heart-of-hearts but never had the nerve to spew out loud in public) and it's okay. He's normalized this shit. So people who feel, and share, that same nasty, selfish, thoughtless, mean-spirited, hateful, and downright un-American but never had the nerve to say so - now have all the encouragement in the world to do so. "Well, the president says that, so why can't I say it?" How many times have YOU heard or read that quote by now? I've heard it and seen it in print quite a lot. It's been normalized, validated, and excused.
