Playing the Race Card is So Easy, Even a Vile Prog Can Do It

So. First, the vile progs claimed that quoting the President at length amounted to taking him out of context. When that — quelle horreur! — didn’t produce the desired effect on public perception of “you didn’t build that,” can you guess where the vile progs are going next? Let’s play this Jeopardy style, where you answer in the form of a question.
