Have a look at this item from Conn Carroll. True, the shout “They’re racist” came from an audience member, but it was one of only a very few(1) the White House saw fit to include in the official transcript of Obama’s speech on immigration in El Paso(2), which does lend it a somewhat “official” quality.
So, question for 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue: Does the President of the United States agree that Republicans and border-security advocates are racists?
(1) The others being expressions of adulation for Obama, which we can assume have the WH seal of approval.
(2) Which happens to be in a state that’s burning to the ground, not that Obama has noticed.
