You know your political campaign should jump the shark
When calling someone 'my African American' is only the second most racially charged statement you made in a week. I get that some of what Trump says, when stripped of the punditry, the knee-jerk outrage, and the politically driven pitchfork brigade, actually has merit. Some of it. Much of it has none at all. It's because of the latter point that it's so easy to hear his statements in the worst conceivable light. Called as we are to take statements in their best light, Trump seems hellbent on making that as difficult as possible.
