 It is certainly is a poor effort to minimize or rationalize Warrens racial slur.

Ok I've got to hear this rationalization. In what way did Warren use a racial slur?

noun
1.
an insinuation or allegation about someone that is likely to insult them or damage their reputation.

Is this a I know you are but what am I or perhaps an I'm rubber you're glue comment?

I don't think Warren used a racial slur - but I also don't think Trump did. That's not to say his choice of words weren't inappropriate, given the venue, the occasion and the guests - but I don't think he's guilty of using a racial slur.

In a boat at sea one of the men began to bore a hole in the bottom of the boat. On being remonstrating with, he answered, "I am only boring under my own seat." "Yes," said his companions, "but when the sea rushes in we shall all be drowned with you."
