  1. Why “woman minister” and not just “minister”?

    You’ll find a few Trump quotes demonizing Muslims (as well as other groups like Mexicans) at this link: https://www.cnn.com/2015/12/31/politics/gallery/donald-trump-campaign-quotes/index.html
    Of course, there is plenty to choose from. Rev. Williams-Skinner is not speaking in hyperbole–Trump is a living hyperbole, except unfortunately many of his outrageous statements are in fact meant to be taken literally.


  2. From the woman minister appearing along with John:

    “There is no good news in demonizing Jews, Muslims, blacks …”

    Really? Trump is demonizing Jews? African Americans? All Muslims? Give me a cite. Please roll the videotape.

    This is now the sort of baseless claim which is received wisdom among his opponents, and the media is more than happy to nod along without challenging it.

    There is plenty to oppose about Trump; Dr. Fea chronicles and updates the daily indictments here, and wrote a whole book about it. But these sorts of sweeping accusations, which are untrue on their face, is why people have tuned out even legitimate criticism of Trump. His political enemies’ hyperbole and overreaching remains one of his key advantages.
