He wasn't wrong. A little nuts but not wrong.

Also (this isn't aimed at you) I love how the Right will simultaneously accuse Obama of being a Muslim AND condemn his (religious) association with a pro-terrosism, extremist PROTESTANT cleric. Which is it, secret Muslim or fundamentalist Christian?

So you're saying 9/11 WASN'T a wake up call to white Americans that non-whites were piseed at what America had done (NEVER to the benefit of non-whites) in the world? Come on...

The 1980s are now calling to ask for their foreign policy back. Because the Cold War has been over for 20 years.

I'm not the 1 projecting. You do realize you're in the (hilariously small) minority of Americans supporting Trump, yes?
