The biggest problem for him here is that he was needlessly vitriolic about a large swathe of people in suggesting they have no interest in making anything of themselves. But really I would say his true intent was simply to start supplying excuses for his own fucking miserable failure of a campaign. I find his constant lying much more offensive, particularly the huge lie about Obama gutting welfare reform in which he uses all the coded stereotypes of black people feeding off the system. That shit is disgusting. That and all the voter suppression that should assure him of a win are just disgusting. And it hasn't worked, or rather he has fucked up every single advantage handed to him coming into the race. But then he had the terrible disadvantage of needing to keep a political base that is horribly out of touch with reality and terribly intolerant (see any of the Republican debates), and now it is that base that he needs to feed these dumb excuses to.
