    Didn't bother watching all of it but this has nothing to do with trump just people blaming him for the way society acts. Also anti trump people always fall back to "he is a racist" but can't quote a single racist thing he has said just the usual "there are tons of example's of his racism"

    If ANYONE here knows what body language and semantics is, you can see that most of the time she's 100% lying on the spot. Typical.

    Christopher Ordonez "all of you white people" ???? There are 4 sects of whites Alpine, Nordic, Mediterranean, and Caucasian. Only one of those are Close to being "pure white." It proves that people of "color" are just as capable as "whites" of being racist, judgemental, hateful and plain ignorant. Towards those that look different from themselves. Your blind generalization and shortcut to thinking only contributes to what is the problem here. It also isnt going to help get people like "emperor Oompa loompa" out of office.

    Trump has nothing to do with how you feel. It seems in the past 6 months there has been a surge of "I'm a victim, I'm oppressed" mantra. Lately there has been an increase in hate crime hoaxes. Wonder if what she said happened actually happened....

    Pretty sure christian teenagers get it too, when you are majorly religious it happens. People don't understand religious groups, Muslims don't understand Christians, Christians don't understand Muslims and Atheists don't understand either. Welcome to the west. At least here you're not persecuted like christians are in Islamic countries be thankful.

    Perhaps if you didn't follow a Religion that's responsible for the deaths of so many people each fucking day, people would stop treating you like an alien. Trump is the only person that's had the balls to finally open up about this issue, and where it's been so long since actual facts were stated, regardless if they upset someone or not, the lefties are crying and shitting themselves because they can't believe their ears. It's time for fucking change.

    The only problem I have with this woman is the fact that she is wearing a hijab and I will explain why I dislike the and the burqa so before you go and try to claim racism please read the whole thing! The hijab and the burqa didn't come into play until the 1970s when men decided that women would be legally forced to wear them it became Sharia law which is not actually a part of the Islamic religion! It's supposed to be garments that make men less sexually aroused when they look at women. That is what all women in western civilization have fought against we're not supposed to be oppressed just because of a man's lack of self-control. All women deserve equal rights and respect and should never be forced to wear what we don't want to wear!! We should be fighting against the brainwashing the people put on Islamic women to wear such an oppressive garment if you're wearing a hijab in the United States of America because of a law that's enforced by men in another country I think you need to reevaluate your opinions

    Blame it on trump instead of the legitimate reasons to dislike or fear Islam.

    ha. she doesn't get to 'demand' anything. and btw, I doubt very much she's been 'attacked' for wearing the hijab either. she lives in one of the most liberal enclaves in one of the most liberal states in the union. gtfoh with those crocodile tears. deported for what? if she's illegal then too bad. abide by our laws, but if she's born here, whatever, she's not getting deported
