This. Facebook generation complaining about Trump = Football fans complaining because Ruby is too violent. That’s not to say there aren’t other things Trump has said that aren’t offensive or inexcusable. But the idea that Trump has made the discourse worse or dumbed down rhetoric would be more believable if I hadn’t been hearing rhetoric like Ms. Cher’s for about 40 years now. And please, this was at a fundraiser with the other presidential candidate present. Spare me the arguments that our country can wallow in all the rhetorical muck and filth, and our presidential candidates can actually give thumbs up and happy smiles when convenient – but we draw the line at the candidates actually doing it themselves!
