Yesterday, Donald Trump said something that I’m sure his supporters will be defending for months. Some will say he was joking. Some will say his words were taken out of context. And some will say he meant something other than what he actually said.
And they’ll all be wrong.
They’ll be wrong factually and they’ll be wrong ethically.
Because nobody should defend what Trump said yesterday. His comment should be condemned by democrats, republicans, libertarians, green party members, and independents.
It should be condemned by Trump supporters, Clinton supporters, Johnson supporters, Stein supporters, and by those who aren’t voting at all.
Donald Trump’s comment should be condemned by everybody.
Before yesterday, Trump had the potential to be dangerous, but he wasn’t quite there yet.
Yesterday, he became dangerous.
