When you are faced with total disregard for the normal conventions of rational and respectful discourse, most intelligent people, I would surmise, would be taken aback for only a moment before ultimately resorting to the baser instincts and getting down there in the mud with their protagonist.

I do not excuse some of the nonsense being spouted by Omar and her "Squad"; the toilet drinking thing being an example of something said being taken way out of context. That group is doing far more harm to any "compassionate" cause the Democratic party might wish to advantage right now.

Anyone who has spent time on or near the border as I personally have will tell you the majority of BP agents are nothing but compassionate in their dealings with illegals they've corralled. I've been in the Yuma General Emerge when a combative illegal being brought in, having sustained minor cuts and scrapes while fighting his captors, gets tended to before the agents who've sustained similar injuries themselves.

I've witnessed a couple of Border Patrol agents holding 2 liter bottles of water up to the parched mouths of a group of illegals who were zip-tied in a circle and watched as they carefully dispensed that liquid gold. We were out by an area called 'The Tanks' on ATV's and a 'copter landed near us to enquire if we'd seen any runners as they had lost a group and were concerned they'd been forced to run in the hot sun for over 6 hours of being hunted by the BP. The concern was for the illegals wellbeing.

All of this nonsense is so media frenzy driven so as to challenge the common sense of most people but, you have to take faith in your agents performing their job in as humane a fashion as they're ALLOWED.
As far as him outsmarting her, on the surface I would say no, as he appears to be a social idiot. But having worked at several big corporations, where the CEO's seemed to be totally out of touch with realty from the workers perspective, they were extremely skilled in improving the companies position. How Trump does it, is beyond me, but in the end, he is a typical American CEO and these women are unknowns that have nothing in common with average Americans that want nothing to do with Extremist.

A few tweets here & there easily sets them off on days long outrages which the MSM fans as much as they can. This and not realizing who is coming out as the real winner here.
  • Omar - 91% of America disapprove
  • AOC - 78% of America disapproves
  • Socialism - 79% of America disapprove
"If all voters hear about is AOC, it could put the [House] majority at risk," said a top Democrat who is involved in 2020 congressional races. "[S]he's getting all the news and defining everyone else’s races.
Face it. Most of America hugely disapproves of these people and it's to Trump's YUGE advantage to keep them front and center in the news. His approval in the other hand continues to rise and is now around 50%. Expect more of it.

Because it's a leaked internal poll from the Democrat party.



But if you want to believe that Omar is loved by the people across America, especially those that Joe Biden so desperately wants to win back from Trump, then that's on you.

I never said Omar was loved, I said you LIED. The poll was from a very specific demographic, NOT across America. In addition NO WHERE does it state her disapproval was 91%.

Our Fake President has no principles, so he tries to govern by the polls.

"Why," asked Washington, "did you just now pour that coffee into your saucer, before drinking?"

"To cool it," answered Jefferson, "my throat is not made of brass."

"Even so," rejoined Washington, "we pour our legislation into the senatorial saucer to cool it."

The House is SUPPOSED TO BE HOT COFFEE...too hot to drink. Period.
hmm, not sure what point you are trying to make, <shrug>

but it looks like


She apologized after being accused of using 'antisemitic tropes'

https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/...ocrats-apology

lol
If she truly believed she didn't do anything wrong, then why bother apologize? Not impressed. She is like a troll. <shrug>

You know I generally do not agree with your political views. To that I will make one change to this comment where you are incorrect, yet I'm in partial agreement.

Go back to when Trump was running for President. Forget about left/right. Trump is an absolute expert at playing his opponents like a fiddle. He destroyed all comers in his rise through the Republican party making all of his right-side opponents at the time look like foolish little children. His rightie opponents fell for his traps back then, so let's not make this a left/right thing with Trump now. He simply knows how to play people.

Very nice post from you. Trump has a rally tonight in North Carolina, a former Obama Swing State. This will play in very very nicely to the ones he needs to go out and vote to keep it a Trump state.

And the voters he's speaking too, are the very swing voters in this state who have no problem voting for him while voting for a Democrat for governor at the same time. Trump will win these voters just like he will in the mid-west. It won't be the ones defending OMAR & AOC. And take note, Joe Biden is hiding from this like a turtle. He knows it too.

A very targeted demographic.


Which is fine, all she has to appeal to is HER constituency, it's a local race, not national.

I know nothing about Omar, so I have no opinion. I think AOC is the flip side of Trump, and dislike her almost as much as I dislike Trump.

I agree with this and know next to nothing of "AOC." I think both women enrage the right mostly because they like to have a brown enemy lol.

I don't pay much attention to representatives who are not my representatives. I don't know much of anything about Omar or "AOC." But I don't watch cable news or read political stuff all day or most of the day either.

So why would the Democrat party be polling this demographic?

Yeah, they want to start winning elections. That's why.
