This wasn’t a misstep by the president…this was an intentional statement to once again pose as a victim…a victim of one of the most heinous periods in American history. Why he can’t move away from the racist dog whistles is becoming more and more problematic.

Impeachment it is! But the House a round! (or is that a quid pro quo?)
