    Calling BS, I'm sure the government knows how to spell acceptable.

    From what I read, they have an office of Diversity and Inclusion. They were making a slide, and reused images from a NGO, supposedly without reading it too well.

    It's funny, how everyone seems to forget that Bill Clinton used the MAGA phrase in his campaigning... I think even in the announcement of his candidacy.

    You can easily find the video on YouTube, and ironically enough I heard the recording of it on NPR many months ago.

    My guess is Trump's folks remember.... Just like they remembered libs saying Baltimore had third world conditions and how Obama referred to thugs, before Trump employed the same terms.

    Granted, given the Clinton's love for Robert Byrd, maybe they did have racist thoughts behind their use of it.

    "make america great again" was used by a racist candidate who wanted to put more black people in jail and only made it to office with the help of racist kkk senators...

    Come out with a blue MAGA hat. That should confuse them.
