But his show has basically been an anti-Trump show since 6 months before the election, and just has steadily become more and more so as Donald Trump continues to co-opt his former party and principled conservatives get more and more pushed out.

Joe has renounced the GOP, has called Trump stupid repeatedly, and pulled no punches in their criticism of the administration. Trump was known to watch the show, and it was a source of massive irritation for him just how much they criticize him, before of course he switched to Fox and Friends to feed his snowflake ego.

If I were a conservative Republican I'd be pissed off too, and if I were Joe I'd want to atone as well.
Good eye.....

You ignored it when Trump called for banning all Muslims from entering the US.(inb4 Islam isn't a race. Most of them are not white and at best-case scenario this is an insane stance predicated on extreme xenophobia)

You ignored it when he's referred to immigrants as "vermin", "infesting" the country.

You ignored it when he said there were very fine people on both sides in regards to the Charlottesville Neo-Nazi rally where one of them murdered a counter-protester.

You ignored when we went back to his and his dad's discriminatory behavior in the 1970s, trying to avoid letting African-Americans rent his apartments. And then the 1990s when he was sued repeatedly for refusing to hire blacks at his businesses, and when he took out a full-page ad in NY newspapers calling for the deaths of black and Latino teenagers after they were exonerated over the infamous Central Park Five case.

You loved that whole using "Pocahontas" as a derogatory slur to mock Sen. Warren.

There's plenty more to go around that indicates at a minimum the guy has some serious xenophobic tendencies. It's not that liberals, and moderates, and independents, and Democrats, and some Republicans have repeatedly show the evidence, it's that it's either ignored or just fine and dandy.
The Russia, Russia, Russia narrative is collapsing into the grotesque spectacle of a 68 year old man with no criminal convictions being held in solitary confinement for the crime of having been Trump's campaign manager. Criminalizing renting a hotel room as an emolument never gained traction. The dirty dossier has opened the door to reveal Obama administration criminal abuses that have so far cleaned out FBI and DOJ officials. What's a diehard Trump hating Resistance zealot to do? Ah, fall back on the race card.

Trump was wrong to vote Judge Curiel's heritage but that doesn't excuse the judge consistently ruling against Trump university on the basis of people have the right to know because he is running for President. BTW Trump did campaign on building a wall and stepped up immigration law enforcement. It is easy to see how the good judge being an anchor baby would shape his rulings against Trump.

Muslim is not a race, there are many races among the faithful. Candidate Trump modified the Muslim ban to countries with significant terrorist presence and a government that is so dysfunctional verification of Visa applicants cannot be done. But Resistance zealots only hear what they want to.

Long ago Fred Trump reached an agreement to allow the Urban League to review his rental practices to ensure they were not discriminatory. Robert Byrd can be forgiven for being a KKK recruiter and filibustering the civil rights act but Trump is a racist because his father was accused of being racist.

Defending Senator Warren for her fraudulent claim of being a native American shows the depth of blind hatred towards Trump. Shouldn't this fraud be pointed out. High cheekbones indeed.

Trump was referring to illegal immigrant MS13 members as vermin, not all immigrants.

Where is the racism in protesting the miscarriage of justice in the central park 5 case? Are the protests against George Zimmerman being found not guilty racist as well?

The Charlottesville city council voted 3-2 to remove the statue of Robert E Lee from the park. Using the standard of smearing anyone who didn't go along with purging history as a white supremacist 40% of the city council are guilty.

Look in the mirror to see the one with a serious phobia problem.
What is a 30 something year old single man with a rock in one hand and a Honduran flag in the other?

An asylum seeker.
