Suppose someone like Mike Pence or Donald Trump or Rush Limbaugh were to say--as a transparent comment on the effeminate and race obsessed Barack Obama--that he could not grapple with serious issues because people of his sort are "confused, blind, shrouded with hate, anger, racism, mommy issues," all Hell would break loose. And rightly so, because it is quite wrong to reduce political issues to amateur psychologizing or to find base irrational motives for other people's arguments. Only children--the word Vladimir Putin used to describe Obama and Ms Clinton--talk this way.
But when Obama uses the same words in a transparent reference to President Trump, he is treated with respect.
We all know this is true and we know why it's true, but why do so-called conservatives continue to pay any attention whatsoever to CNN-FOX-NBC etc?
