I'm guessing a rent boy scandal or similar.

Washington is full of sex scandals, so it wouldn't be a stretch.

Do you promise to leave when President Trump is reelected? Or are you just blowing smoke out your ....

I agree with Trump’s comments even though they were a little bit over the top.

The 4 Congress women in question don’t deserve to be representatives in our national government. This is especially true of Omar. Who in the world thinks that any of them stand for American values?

The Democrat support of illegal immigrants in the United States is incomprehensible and anti-American.

hmm, I guess Hillary didn't know about the Electoral College. She was rather arrogant to think she had the rust belt states in the bag..

That's blackmail.
He may, he may not.

Whom did Trump attack? Who do you think he was referencing if not US citizens that are non-white congresswomen?

The only foreign born congresswomen who are Democrats are:

Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) Somalia
Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-Wash.), India
Rep. Debbie Mucarsel-Powell (D-Fla.), Ecuador
Rep. Stephanie Murphy (D-Fla.), Vietnam
Rep. Norma J. Torres (D-Calif.), Guatemala

Did he mean those non- white women above?
Or did he reference the congresswomen who have recently clashed with the Speaker and did he ignorantly think 3 of these 4 non-white women were born somewhere other than the U.S?

Rep Ocasio-Cortez, (D -NY) born in NY
Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) born in Detroit
Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-Mass.) born in Cincinnati
Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) as noted above was born in Somalia

Well, we are quite accustomed to Donald Trump's tweets on these kinds of things as they are often somewhat carefully crafted — enough to give some plausible deniability to his followers and apologists. It’s pretty clear to everyone else, though, whom this attack was directed, but even if it were the other list he cannot escape no matter what the apologists try to spin. They are non-white U.S citizens and his remarks were xenophobic and racist and meant to cause division and hate and fear.
Everyone outside of TrumpWorld world are tired of Donald's worn out birtherism tactics. Period!
haha!! You're cute. My statement is exactly what it is. Once again, hatred is so strong that you are also trying to twist stuff.
He never said a specific race. He said congresswomen. Kept it very general until his press conference today. I know that 1 of the 4 was born outside of the US.

I read everything...both sides, then go from there.
Once again...you never showed me in that collection of 3 tweets where he went full on racist.

Yes... he did.

See, thats the beautiful thing. I'm not. The media is the master of gaslighters. It really is amazing when you don't listen to the media, listen to things in their entirety on your own. Views change.

Exactly.

They have no spines. Truth is expendable with that bunch, it is insulting to even contemplate. They should apologize to us all for being who they are: two-faced liars abusing the public trust.

Trump is no better. He knows, for instance, that global warming is a serious threat. He took that position publicly before he was president. He changed his position because the Republicans (generally under the influence of the Koch brothers) have pushed the party minions away from environmental concerns and towards disaster, and Trump wanted to gain that support. Secretly he knows he has taken a false position, and he knows he is leading this nation on a wayward dangerous path, but he does it anyway ... just like Graham and McConnell and all those other spineless and deceitful mud worms.

They have each received their thirty pieces of silver ...

Beware of the handshake
That hides the snake
I'm telling you beware
Beware of the pat on the back
It just might hold you back


Smiling faces ...

Senator Graham understands the concept of trying to avoid what is known as ‘punching down’ when you’re the President.

Trump either doesn’t understand this, or he just doesn’t care about avoiding it.
