Donald Trump is a bigot. (Definition: "noun 1. a person who is utterly intolerant of any differing creed, belief, or opinion.") Indeed, he is the worst KIND of bigot, the kind that ardently insist they are not while pursuing the most bigoted of agenda. He saw like-minded people as his "base". In addition to the Muslim ban, he has promoted other deeply bigoted policies (e.g. transgender ban).

Trump continues to elevate avowed bigots within the administration (Jeff Sessions fights for racist outcomes. Who care what's in his heart? - Slate) and to the federal bench - 44-year-old Kevin Newsom, an 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals nominee from Alabama; 52-year-old John Bush, a 6th Circuit nominee from Kentucky; and 37-year-old Damien Schiff, a nominee for the U.S. Court of Federal Claims, (Polemicists in Robes; Trump picks right-wing blogger for a judgeship, his confirmation hearing was a complete train wreck; Senate send forward judicial nominees with virulent anti-civil rights records) The result is the most profound anti-civil rights agenda since the 60's ( Trump Administration Argues Federal Civil Rights Law Does Not Protect Gay Employees;
Gorsuch’s First Anti-Gay Dissent Has a Huge Factual Error—and Terrible, Dishonest Logic).

It is also profoundly clear that the Senate GOP doesn't care. They have not challenged even the least qualified nominees.

Welcome to our craven new world, NWP.

On second thought...there's nothing new about it and it shows exactly how far we have not advanced as a civilization. If there is a single overarching word that would describe mankind throughout the millenia
it would be bigotry.
