Donald Trump and Jeb Bush have agreed on very little to this point in the campaign for the Republican presidential nomination.

But one thing they can now agree upon is that they’re both hunky-dory with the NFL’s Washington franchise using a racial slur as the team’s name.

Last week, Bush said, “I don’t find it (the Redskins name) offensive … I’m missing something here, I guess.”

This week, Trump jumped on board the insensitive train by saying:

“Honestly, I don’t think they should change the name, unless the owner wanted to. I know Indians that are extremely proud of that name. They think it’s a positive.”

Apparently, Trump isn’t aware that every tribal government has voted to call for the Washington franchise to change its Redskins moniker.

It seems he’d rather just go through life spewing stream-of-consciousness blather.
