Trump's xenophobia

I thought that I had enough of Trump's racism, bigotry and xenophobia in recent months. Well, I was wrong. He continues to come with new ammos to take him to the height of infamy in this obscene matters.
On Tuesday evening, Trump employed a never-before-seen tactic on the trail: A dramatic reading, glasses and all, of Al Wilson's "The Snake."
The song, which has an old-school R&B beat, paints a picture of a trusting woman (read: America) who invites a snake into her home, saving him from freezing. Ultimately, as she "clutched him to her bosom" he bites her.
When she asks why he did that after all she'd done for him, the "vicious" reptile replies "oh shut up silly woman ... you knew damn well I was a snake before you took me in."
Upon finishing the recitation, the crowd cheered. "That's right!" one man cried out.
"Does that make sense?" Trump asked the clapping crowd of about 1,000 people gathered in the University of Northern Iowa gymnasium. "Hopefully that's not gonna be the case," he said, referencing the controversial decision of whether or not to take Syrian refugees into the country.
