Default Bill Clinton suggests Trump slogan racist – but he used the same one

Oh, Billy....

I liked Bubba better when he was a sexual predator as opposed to the clueless, babbling dolt he's become now.

Maybe this is just another example of something only being racist if a Republican says it.

Bill Clinton suggests Trump slogan racist ? but he used the same one | Fox News

Former President Bill Clinton might want to keep the racism accusations to himself from now on -- after ripping Donald Trump for a slogan he's used repeatedly since his 'Comeback Kid' days.

The 42nd president on Wednesday, while stumping in Orlando for Hillary Clinton, suggested Trump’s campaign rallying cry, “Make America Great Again,” is racist code.

“I’m actually old enough to remember the good old days, and they weren’t all that good in many ways,” Clinton said. “That message where ‘I’ll give you America great again’ is if you’re a white Southerner, you know exactly what it means, don’t you?”

The crowd roared as Clinton continued. “What it means is ‘I’ll give you an economy you had 50 years ago, and I’ll move you back up on the social totem pole and other people down,’” he said.

The problem is, Clinton himself has used the same phrase several times in the past.

He used it repeatedly while running for president in 1991 and 1992, declaring at one Little Rock, Ark., event, "Together, we can make America great again."

And in a campaign ad for his wife in 2008, Bill Clinton said, "It's time for another comeback, time to make America great again."


Trump campaign manager Kellyanne Conway pointed to the inconvenient footage in calling the former president's allegations about Trump's slogan a "disgrace."

“That performance is really something,” she said Friday on “Fox & Friends.” “Bill Clinton is known as a very strong campaigner, a great voice in politics -- but not this cycle.”

You just don't get it, HJ, it's not the message. It's the messenger which makes things better in libroland.

BJ Clinton good. Trump bad.

I think the false race card is a bad strategy by Hillary and her sheep. It turns peeps off that might be on the fence. Everyone knows Trump isn't racist or misogynist. It's just textbook liberal rhetoric hoping it suckers in a few independents that don't know any better.

Most people are sick and tired of the race card. 99% of the time it's bs.

Hell, now we're hearin' that racism is why Bill Cosby is in trouble. It just keeps getting ridiculous by the day.

This is why Trump has about 4% of the black vote.
