1973: "I am not a crook!"; 2019: "I am not a racist!"

Well, Nixon was a crook, and trump is racist.

And there was Reagan's administration drug trafficking, and the bush family lies for invading Iraq (while letting Osama Bin Laden go free).

Oh goody, everyone who isn’t far left is a racist again. Of course it isn’t true but it did help stop Hilary from a win. So, please proceed.

I am confused, the OP did not mention anyone being racist other than Trump. Which, by his recent tweets, he has solidly confirmed.

It's just in the delusions of those suffering from an inferiority complex. I remember when being called a racist was a terrible thing. Now, it's just a word shouted by schizophrenics. I feel so sorry for the left. They have my pity.

Most of us were too young to worry about Nixion. Ancient history. Watergate does sound almost as bad as what Obama just did. Spying.

If tRump isn't a RACIST, why is he so loved and adored by so many NAZIS, and FASCISTS?

Congratulations once again for having to reach back 50 years to drag Nixon's dead body into the conversation to somehow make your accusations relevant.

Farrakhan LOVES Omar. She has his 100% support.

David Duke LOVES Omar. Yes, the Grand Wizard of the KKK called Ilhan Omar, "The most important member of Congress".


So...you were saying again?

Don't we already know he's a racist from the days he and daddy were marking rental housing applications "C." ???

He has never lived a "normal" life and is out of touch with anyone except other wealthy white people who share his bias and willingness to cheat and lie.

Sure, you can name a few leaders. But you are ignoring the wide swath of regular folk that also support them.

There are plenty of despicable leaders who admire Trump.

David Duke also loves Trump.

Now, a video of the US President speaking to Congress in 1993 about Native American Indian reservations has emerged.

REP. GEORGE MILLER (D-CALIF): Is this you, discussing Indian blood: "We're going to judge people by whether they have Indian blood whether they're qualified to run a casino or not?"

TRUMP: That probably is me, absolutely. Because I'll tell you what. If you look, if you look at some of the reservations that you've approved, that you, sir, in your great wisdom have approved, I will tell you right now -- they don't look like Indians to me. And they don't look like the Indians ... Now, maybe we say politically correct or not politically correct, they don't look like Indians to me, and they don't look like Indians to Indians.

And a lot of people are laughing at it. And you're telling me how tough it is and how rough it is to get approved. Well, you go up to Connecticut and you look. Now, they don't look like Indians to me, sir.

MILLER: Thank God that's not the test of whether or not people have rights in this country or not -- whether or not they pass your "look" test.

TRUMP: Depends whether or not. ... Yeah. Depends whether or not you're approving it, sir.

MILLER: No, no, it's not a question of whether or not I'm approving it. It's not a question of what I'm approving it. Mr. Trump, do you know, do you know in the history of this country where we've heard this discussion before? "They don't look Jewish to me?"

TRUMP: Oh, really.

MILLER: "They don't look Indian to me." "They don't look Italian to me."

TRUMP: Mm-hm.

MILLER: And that was the test for whether people could go into business, or not go into business. Whether they could get a bank loan. You're too black, you're not black enough.

TRUMP: I want to find out. ... Well, then why don't you -- you're approving for Indian. Why don't you approve it for everybody then, sir?

MILLER: But that's not a ...

TRUMP: If your case is non-discriminatory, why don't you approve for everybody? You're saying only Indians -- wait a minute, sir.

MILLER: You wouldn't stand -- you wouldn't stand for it in five minutes.

TRUMP: You're saying only Indians can have the reservations, only Indians can have the gaming. So why aren't you approving it for everybody? Why are you being discriminatory? Why is it that the Indians don't pay tax, but everybody else does? I do.

And Trump is also a crook

And, no, he doesn't pay taxes

No doubt his team has set everything up to be owned by his businesses so he doesn't have to pay taxes

Many of us here remember and let me tell you tRUMP has Nixon beat. Nixon knew the law and knew that if caught he would pay. That doesn't make him moral. He paid the price of being outed. The country survived Nixon that's why you don't "worry" about Nixon. Inane. Unbelievable to compare Obama's administration to Nixon. Out of respect to the forum I'll stop here.

Maybe true about non federal taxes. Otherwise - the claim about Trump paying taxes is magical thinking.

Haha - SoFLUSA posts a comment that Trump is racist and somebody immediately takes personal offense?

Why would that be?

And maybe you can't avoid paying taxes, but are you in the same income bracket as Mr Trump et al.? Because they surely do - as everybody should know.

Yeah, riiight, Trump wasn't spying, Obama was. Do you have a point?

He paid the price of being outed

He retired. Anything else you're trying to sell?

Playing games again. you said, "anything else you're trying to sell?"

I stand by what I said. Your comments don't address the real pain of the Nixon era. Nixon did not "retire." He resigned in shame and his Republican party recognized that he had committed CRIMES.

Lurker said: "Trump wasn't spying"

Not the topic.

Lurker said, to another poster: "Prove it. :)"


Still playing games mr lurk -- I responded to this comment of yours:

Ancient history? Nixon equated with Obama? The Right is desperate.
