One thing you can say about Trump, he knows how to use the media to play his opponents like a fiddle. The leftists fall for the trap every single time.

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.

I bet those disapproval numbers are going down now. But, really, it only matters what voters of their districts think about them when they run for reelection.

I've mainly stayed away from the threads about this whole ishstorm because I know no one is going to change their minds. But it should be fair game to go after their politics and their ideas and their statements. But he went after them personally. He put huge targets on their backs. He called them out because he doesn't think they love America due to some of the things they said, Yet tbs is a man whose campaign slogan is "Make America Great Again" because he didn't think it was great in 2016.

Not to mention the sheer idiocy of telling four Americans to go back to their own country. SMH

Trump never mentioned any names. Don't you get it?


They fell for it hook line & sinker.

A small poll of 1000 likely voters....... white..... and with less than 2 years of college.

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.

He didn't have to.

All the women in the House who are from other countries and/or who are nonwhite are Democrats.

And, yes... his distraction methods are legendary.

Doesn't make it okay for him to say this sort of stuff about members of Congress.

Being critical of their platforms and policy views is TOTALLY appropriate.

Telling them to "go back to where they came from" is completely inappropriate chatter from a POTUS.

Sounds like something a racist during the Jim Crow era would scream at black people, and you know it.

Correct.

And...

I agree. Not a fan of AOC.

She may come around one day, but her Twitter use is already reminding me of a female, Democrat version of Trump.

He did.


The liberals, of course, are apoplectic about it, as they love Muslims who hate America. Keep in mind that there is a 9% approval, which are probably all libs and sleeper cell Muslim terrorists.

Every last bit of the inappropriate behavior of Donald Trump during his campaign and while in office has been designed to get head pats from his base and to distract from something he was doing that he should not be doing.

That's how he rolls.

And, it's not commendable in the slightest.
