They're simply exchanging long protein strings. If you can think of a better way to do it...?
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

I normally don't post this song until November.

Hey it's too early for that.

Don't make me post that video of those girls singing before that one Trump rally.

He loves them so much he refers to them simply as "Hispanics"

Does this matter? I mean at this point can't we say that this is just how the guy speaks? He doesn't uses the most polished words sometimes but he's not speaking from a place of malice. Though he has to be aware of the absurdity of it all. :D

Well, yeah, I'd argue it does matter a bit.

Lumping people together on a relatively arbitrary basis as a big group is dumb whether your attitude is positive or negative. I'm certainly not in the camp of "wah wah hate speech eliminate words because they make people racist", but I think the fact he chooses to make statements along the lines of "Mexican illegals are rapists" or "I love Hispanics" sort of suggests he naturally thinks along racial lines, which isn't the best trait to have in a country where national-level arguments about race continue to be a big deal. I think it plays into the various reasons people call him divisive.
