Trump should be called out for what he is, not only for what he says. Here are some excerpts from an article in THE WEEK:

Will Hurd and Pat Toomey are among the first GOP lawmakers to condemn Trump’s ‘racist and xenophobic’ tweets 

After President Trump over the weekend tweeted that several minority congresswomen should “go back” to where they came from, some Republican lawmakers are beginning to criticize his remarks.

Rep. Chip Roy (R-Texas) said that Trump’s comments were “wrong,” while Rep. Fred Upton (R-Mich.) on Monday called them “really uncalled for” and “very disappointing,” also speculating that “a good number of my Republican colleagues don’t appreciate the comments as well,” The Washington Post reports.

Ooooh, “wrong,” “uncalled for.”

Wait, not just “uncalled for,” but “really uncalled for.” And “very disappointing.” How harsh of him!

And “colleagues don’t appreciate.” Wow!

Rep. Paul Mitchell (D-Mich.), who tweeted that “we must be better than comments” like Trump’s, which are “beneath leaders.”

OMG, wash Mitchell’s mouth out with soap for such stridency.

Rep. Will Hurd (R-Texas) also blasted Trump’s tweets as “racist” and “xenophobic” (and) “unbecoming of the leader of the free world.”

Well, that’s a little better, but “racist” and “xenophobic” don’t quite make it to the top of the charts, and “unbecoming” is just flat out whimpering.

Rep. Pete Olson (R-Texas) said the tweet is “not reflective” of his district’s “values.” And Sen. Pat Toomey (R-Pa.) said Trump “was wrong” to say what he did because “three of the four were born in America.”

“Not reflective”? Really, that’s the best he can do?

And as for Toomey, “three of the four were born in America” is not the point at all. Yes, it demonstrates Trump’s stupidity, but the phrase would be just as disgusting if all the women were born in the countries Trump thinks they were.

Anyway, it’s the old, “If you don’t like it here, you’re not Americans, so leave,” grammar school argument, that appeals to those having only a grammar school mentality. No wonder the childish, semi-literate Trump used it.

Sen. Rob Portman (said) that Trump’s comments were “divisive, unnecessary and wrong.”  Former Ohio Gov. John Kasich also condemned Trump’s tweets as “deplorable and beneath the dignity of the office.”

Former Republican Sen. Jeff Flake called the remarks “vile and offensive.”

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) on Fox & Friends recommended that Trump “aim higher, (but anyway) the lawmakers he was attacking “hate our own country.”

Note how all the “gentlemanly” (i.e. cowardly) politicians criticized Trump’s remarks but did not criticize the man who made those remarks; their criticisms were milquetoast and restrained.

And they didn’t use the “b” word. So let me tell you how I phrase my criticism:

Donald Trump is a fucking bigot.

The people who back him are political cowards, very rich, very stupid, and/or fucking bigots. Take your pick(s). Trump himself is all of those, but especially, he is a bigot.

He does well in those areas having the largest number of bigots, and he singlehandedly is bringing America down, down, down.

And please don’t excuse him by reciting some good things you believe he may have done. I don’t care whether he prays every day (hah), is a loyal faithful husband (haha), or is a war hero (hahaha). The man is a rotten, stinking bigot. Period.

There are certain names (Adolf Hitler, Vidkun Quisling, Benedict Arnold, etc.) that live in infamy, as examples of particular forms of evil.

The name “Donald Trump” long will stand for stupid, white bigotry in America.

I pray the Democrats will, at long last, tell it like it is.

The most important problems in economics involve the excessive income/wealth/power Gaps between the richer and the poorer.

Wide Gaps negatively affect poverty, health and longevity, education, housing, law and crime, war, leadership, ownership, bigotry, supply and demand, taxation, GDP, international relations, scientific advancement, the environment, human motivation and well-being, and virtually every other issue in economics.

Implementation of The Ten Steps To Prosperity can narrow the Gaps:

Ten Steps To Prosperity:

1. Eliminate FICA

2. Federally funded Medicare — parts a, b & d, plus long-term care — for everyone

3. Provide a monthly economic bonus to every man, woman and child in America (similar to social security for all)

4. Free education (including post-grad) for everyone

5. Salary for attending school

6. Eliminate federal taxes on business

7. Increase the standard income tax deduction, annually. 

8. Tax the very rich (the “.1%”) more, with higher progressive tax rates on all forms of income.

9. Federal ownership of all banks

10. Increase federal spending on the myriad initiatives that benefit America’s 99.9% 

The Ten Steps will grow the economy, and narrow the income/wealth/power Gap between the rich and you.
