Come on. Do you really not know how Trump's dehumanization game works at this point?
Here's a refresher:
This is exactly how dehumanizing language works. It's precisely what makes it a dog-whistle:
Trump "read aloud a few made up Hispanic names and described potential crimes they could have committed, like rape or murder."
Reporters: "Trump was 'only' talking about Hispanic criminals, not trying to tar Hispanics more broadly!"
I'm "calling for a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the US."
Also Trump: "Thousands and thousands" of US Muslims celebrated 9/11.
Reporters: "Trump is 'only' talking about the Muslims he thinks celebrated 9/11. He's not trying to smear all US Muslims!"
