Oh he most definitely has used the word before, I just am not sure we will ever get a tape released until after the fucker is out of office.

This is the fucking thing she chooses to be honest about??

This truly is an administration for the history books.
If the tape is leaked I expect it will bolster his base.

She probably doesn't want to deny something that his supporters will love.

I mean the whole "No that didn't happen" to "I give the most recent information I have available and so what if he did anyway" play has been working really well so far, wonder why they're deviating.

Also, you know what, jobs and the economy aren't fucking everything. I'm so sick to fucking death of their defense on every possible thing being about how many new jobs there are.

"You're putting kids into concentration camps."
"Yeah but look how many new jobs we've made!!"

"Maybe they exist, maybe they don't. Who knows! But African Americans should be grateful for Trump!"

They are N-Word Tapes Agnostics. What a world we live in.

You can tell she's the press sec. because she' s smart enough to cover her ass by not agreeing to guarantee anything and saying shit like, "To the best of my understanding..."

But the fact this is even happening is incredible.

There is zero reason to give any reports to what his cult thinks about this. There is every reason to play this tape once released over, and over, and over and over. There is nothing to debate, he will be caught in a huge lie about being the racist scum he is. Every time he speaks someone should play the tape.

This whole fucking year has been a...



Only Mark knows the truth and could very quickly end this. Spoiler: he won't.

Who cares if there's a tape? Anyone with a modicum of brain power knows the truth already, and everyone else will just think it's fake news anyways. If even if the tape came out it would literally change nothing. This is just red meat for the media and we all should be focusing on more important and pressing things than the fact that the president is a racist.

"He said it while he was still a Democrat."

"Other presidents have said worse under stress."

"He didn't mean it in a hateful way."

"If they can say it, he [we] can too."

"It's just a word, it's not like he assaulted anyone."

"Freedom of speech."

" *Black unemployment numbers* "

"The real racists are those trying to divide us over a simple word."

Says everything about what kind person she thinks Trump is.

She can't deny such possibility when she knows he is capable of blasting that word without shame.

You forgot "what about the violence in Chicago"

On the one hand, I understand why the tape is a big deal, but it must be really demoralizing for black people - if this tape ends up swaying opinion - that your need the most concrete, impossible to dispute, explicit kind of receipt to back up an assement of character that is so clear for anyone to see (who doesn't have an agenda to willfully misconstrue reality).

But I also realize that it is an important "chess-piece", in the sense that it's so damning as to not have any plausible deniability.

If the scattered reports are to be believed, Trump's team was wrestling with this very thing: how do we come up with a reasonable context in which the n-word would make sense being spoken by Trump?

So it's this situation that simultaneously feels like a pointless exercise, akin to doing a scientific report on whether or not water is wet, but also fills a valuable function, by virtue of how incredibly difficult it is to spin this into something it is not.

And that could be useful against a political movement that has made gaslighting and reality-distortion their go-to tool, in a way that is genuinely chilling to see play out.
