Comments: He meant "suppress" in the good way

I'm 49 and sometimes the wrong word comes out of my mouth. I know it's age ... maybe I've eaten its too many vegetables cooked in that cheap aluminium pot and have am early form of Altheziemer's ... but weekly, I get in the middle of talking and my mind knows the direction of the word I want but the Thesarus in my brain was first printed on a card catalog not stored digitally. I pull out the wrong word.

John Pappageorge is what 73? His brain pulled out the wrong word. He's thinking the vote percentages are out of balance (see scales) and we've got to get the scales less out of balance. But he's 73 and said "suppress."

My fellow African American citizens. We, Republicans are not out to get you. We are out to get you to see (what we believe) that Democratic policies bind your poor to being poor. And that a foreign policy that waits for an attack on us to react is a policy that guarantees we will be attacked at home again.

May God Bless You and heal you of the true injuries you've endured from racism, and May God Bless us and shine light on the times we have injured you that we may repent and never do it again.

That's so plausible I forgot to plause.
