AP – Donald Trump’s paid campaign staffers have declared on their personal social media accounts that Muslims are unfit to be U.S. citizens, ridiculed Mexican accents, called for Secretary of State John Kerry to be hanged and stated their readiness for a possible civil war, according to a review by The Associated Press of their postings.

The AP examined the social media feeds of more than 50 current and former campaign employees who helped propel Trump through the primary elections. The campaign has employed a mix of veteran political operatives and outsiders. Most come across as dedicated, enthusiastic partisans, but at least seven expressed views that were overtly racially charged, supportive of violent actions or broadly hostile to Muslims.

    This is not an “analysis”. This is a deliberate Associated Press biased hatchet job

    I receive approximately 20 messages a day from Democratic party staffers and from various Democratic organizations. “Their virtual avalanche of unfounded stereotype accusations apply to “the uneducated” ;”the trailer park trash”;Diehard gun holders”; etc.

    James Carville’s output alone more than equals the entire total of “Tump” staffers that the AP singles out. Further note that many of these Trump staffers are vendors providing a specific service and that any challenge to them by the Trump campaign would be reported by the AP as newsworthy as an infringement of their First Amendment rights.

    I am surprised that you have been suckered into giving any credence to the story.

    Remember that the evaluation is exclusively in the eyes of the beholder …. And the beholder is cherry picking.

    For example, at a reception that I attended where the honoree was black ,one of the black officials objected the dessert as being a racial insult since it was was watermelon. The staff member that had organized the event (a black girl majoring in public relations) stated: “thank God that my original food order did not go through . I had ordered fried chicken and the kitchen told me that they could not provide it but that they could provide grilled salmon.”
