AOC is almost funny, she is do nutty, but I don't think of her as being mean and hateful like Omar.
Her voting base is not national, which was my point.

And they never saw it coming...

Oh brilliant. Who could have foreseen the House coming together on this issue. Definitely 3D quantum chess.

Or a monkey slinging poo. You know, they are so similar.

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.
This is spot on; AOC has virtually replicated the Trump model. If they both succeed in 2020, expect many more imitators.

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.

The Socialist Democrat party is not popular at all. Only a dummy would think Socialism is good.

1. Why WOULD he? If they are so unpopular they are irrelevant, right?

2. The only approval rating that matters is among their respective constituents.
Man if you can't figure that out, I hope you are a strategist for the DNC.

It's genius. The poor rubes don't know what hit them. And they certainly didn't learn their lesson from 2015/16 when he did it to them then.

Because it gives her a bigger voice.
Because it looks like our President is more worried about some junior in Congress than the bigger issues.
Because he should be the 'adult in the room'
Because SHE is not his threat or our threat.
Because you give her more power and value when you make her the story.


blah blah blah.

It wasn't meant for you. We know you'll never vote for Trump. But do keep complaining in defense of Omar, AOC, Socialism, etc.

Trump knows how to keep it front in center. It's even forcing Biden to short circuit his bid for the nomination before it even starts. Every single time he reverses himself, to "fit in" with the crazed narrative that's becoming the Democrat norm, Trump wins. When he's done, Biden won't look any different that Omar.

The brilliance of this is staggering.

Libs everywhere are rising up to defend these people and are reinforcing their status of being the faces of the party. There will be no way for them to turn back from this. Stunning. Bravo, President Trump!
