If you read the first of the three pages of the 5am+ 7/14/19 Tweets (only pages 2 and 3 were displayed the first 10 or so times I did a search and pulled them up), It's obvious that Trump (ignorantly) didn't think any of them were born in the United States.

Yeah, the old 'all Congress critters are terrible except mine who is fantastic'. The power of incumbency.

Perspective. This is politicians playing politics. Nothing more.

The only approval ratings that matter for this congresswomen are those of her district. Those citizens elected her and remain supportive.

Main takeaway here - The numbers 91%, 78%, and 79% are all racist.

And if he knew, he wouldn't care anyway. The problem is his supporters are nothing but apologists that think there is no way he could be racist. The problem I have is that there is just too much Trump has said that is race-baiting if not racist itself.

My take away 99% were not from the home districts. The home districts on Election Day are the only polls that matter. Waldo said that time and time with Trump.

As the aid grew, so did the opportunities for graft from warring clans who saw the humanitarian crisis as a way to cement their power throughout the country.

I have a good friend who was in one of those African countries doing humanitarian works. He was a navy corpsman and the local ambushed them and killed many American Marines and soldiers. My friend has severe brain injury and he is now 100% disabled. This woman annoys me to no end.

This disgusting woman was not even there at the time. How the hell did she know what happened.
Her liberal ilk never know whatís happening. They donít care. Their only goal is to bash America and law enforcement and the military and try and turn America into a hell hole of lawlessness. She is a terrorist of a different sort.

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.

"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 elseís 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.

Waldo ...seriously, did you read the Axios article? The poll was a bit of a joke per the article:

Quote:
The poll ó taken in May, before Speaker Pelosi's latest run-in with AOC and the three other liberal House freshmen known as "The Squad" ó included 1,003 likely general-election voters who are white and have two years or less of college education. These are the "white, non-college voters" who embraced Donald Trump in 2016 but are needed by Democrats in swing House districts.

This thread amounts to a Trump campaign echo chamber. Trump is an illiterate coward and has no ability to argue his administration's policies or his ideas. Astonishing that his followers after all these years don't tire of being directed to the enemy of the month. Trump's only accomplishment, IMO, is his ability to make people afraid and angry. He chooses a target, tells his supporters that the individual is responsible for all the fear and anger and grievances Donald himself has propagated in them and then lets loose in ugly lies and hate filled speech.

There will be no independent thinking. None of that allowed. He doesn't want his supporters thinking for themselves because using one's own brain might expose him as a phony and charlatan. If any one person took just a second to stop and question themselves how this individual congresswoman, even if only one of the lies were true, was going to hurt and harm them personally and bring about the downfall of America it might be eye-opening.

Donald Trump needs his supporters to hate the United States and turn their backs on the founding principles and core values of the nation. As evidenced by this thread, and so many astonishing others over the years, it seems hate and lies and fear are contagious and effectively being used to annihilate the very America he pretends to make great again.

The only approval rating that matters are those of her constituents. Who thought up this latest talking point and to convince whom?

Trump's campaign machine wants us to keep focused on this latest "enemy of the people" while they and he go about the business of destroying all that we once stood for. We are losing democracy and America.

One more talking point, one more lie, one more tweet more outrageous than the last. One more curtailing of someone else's civil rights until there is no one left to speak up.

This is how its done folks!
