Unclear on the concept of “thanking and congratulating”

Trump Orders Surrogates to Intensify Criticism of Judge and Journalists [Kevin Cirilli, Michael C. Bender, and Jennifer Jacobs – Bloomberg Politics]

A campaign staffer had instructed surrogates to desist commenting on matters pertaining to the Trump organization, but Trump said that was “stupid.”

Trump was scheduled to appear on the call to “thank his supporters and congratulate everyone as the primaries officially came to an end.” Calling them stupid is kind of the same thing, right?

Also:

A clearly irritated Trump told his supporters to attack journalists who ask questions about the lawsuit and his comments about the judge.

“The people asking the questions—those are the racists,” Trump said. “I would go at ’em.”

In other words: “I know what you are but what am I?!” Worked for Pee Wee Herman, right?
