In between his efforts to strip 20 million Americans of access to healthcare and find ways to pardon his dumb ass, on Tuesday night our beloved president delivered a 2020 campaign speech in Youngstown, Ohio, in which he characterized undocumented immigrants as psychopathic serial killers.

“And you’ve seen the stories about some of these animals,” Trump said of undocumented immigrant gang members—thereby effectively stereotyping all undocumented immigrants as gang members. “They don’t want to use guns, because it’s too fast and it’s not painful enough. So they’ll take a young, beautiful girl—16, 15 and others—and they slice them and dice them with a knife because they want them to go through excruciating pain before they die. And these are the animals that we’ve been protecting for so long. Well, they’re not being protected anymore, folks.”

Oh, and he also said this: “With the exception of the late, great Abraham Lincoln, I can be more presidential than any president that’s ever held this office.”

Right, ok. Speaking of which—remember when the media called this racist, xenophobic piece of shit “presidential?”
