And the rage we see every day from conservatives on this forum ISN'T based on emotions?

You could have fooled me.

Trump has entirely lost the plot. His twitter feed reads like its written by someone who has completely lost control of their senses. Astonishing that we still have this guy in the White House: The madness of King Trump.
The squad continuously baits him and he takes the bait.

He seems unable to control his reactions vs less than 1% of the House of Representatives.

Wow- Trump sure knows how to play these idiots. He throws out a little bait and they just implode. The dem party is looking like an unruly mob of children and their presidential hopes for 2020 are fading fast.


The nation is tiring of dems with constant accusations of "racism" and their intractable hatred of Trump. The dems, pre-occupied with their hatred, have accomplished nothing since gaining the House in 2018.


Trump has beaten them again! When will they figure out that he is smarter than they are and beats them at every turn?
Matter of perspective. The Squad baited him and he took it.

She could not get a vote calling the Presidentís remarks racist itís not allowed. But wanted to get every House member on the record voting on it.

So she asked for a vote got rebuked by the a Majority Leader, who then asked for a vote to take out her remarks off the record.

Everyone voted 190-232 to keep the comments on the record.

So basically she got her vote on the Presidentís comments being racist.
Worked just as intended, didnít it.

I don’t recall Trump telling Chuck, Nancy, Rosie, Meagan, George, Rachael, Elizabeth etc to go back to the corrupt hellhole countries they came from.

Yet he chose to let loose on 4 women of color, 3 of whom were born and raised in the US.

Beyond bad form for any POTUS to display an inability to control his reactions.

Not lost on me that the squad intentionally baits him and he takes the bait.

He and the squad continuously bait each other, take the bait and itís all personal- tots in the sandbox flinging sand while screaming ď poo-poo headĒ at each other.

For the so- called leader of the free world, itís beyond bad form to react the way he did. He could have chosen to be the adult in the room and refused to engage with them.

Only thing any of us really control is our own reaction. Our reactions teach people how to treat us.
I disagree. They are the face of the Democrat Party today. This isn't the 'old' Democrat Party anymore. It has moved far left. They are socialists. Look how many Democrats have 'signed on' with OAC and "The Squad." Nearly every one. Nancy Pelosi is out, even though she is Speaker in name. She has lost control. Every Democrat 2020 candidate is talking about how much "free" stuff they plan to give us, and even paying off student loans with our money!

As for President Trump, he knows what he's doing. This isn't a game to him. He knows what the Democrats have become, and that's why he is tying the Party to "The Squad." He is correct. And he alerts the American people through his Tweets and whenever he gets the opportunity to talk to the Press.

He knows three of the four were born here. He's not stupid. His words were rhetorical. Most people 'get it.' The Democrats, like little children, take his words at face value (or pretend to), and then ridicule him for "not knowing that three of these women were born here." But the "big mouth" in this fight is Omar, who [i]is[i] an immigrant, so he makes an example of her. She is a disgusting piece of work. She regularly trashes America. She has made light of al-qaeda. She doesn't understand our Constitution, and has mocked it. She hates Jews, and openly lets it be known that she does ("It's all about the Benjamin's, baby." "The Jews have hypnotized the world."). Her anti-Semitic remarks are not reported in the "mainstream" media, least of all on CNN or MSNBC. Omar also supports CAIR (which supports Hamas) and fund raise for it. You may remember that CAIR is an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation case. She lied about CAIR being "founded after 9-11 because they realized that some people did something." CAIR was founded in 1994.

President Trump, unlike many past presidents (except perhaps Ronald Reagan) does not choose to just ignore these people, but he feels it important to engage them, because they are a threat. I find that refreshing. There is nothing more frustrating then to see our country being attacked and for our President to do nothing.

The majority of Americans are with her. The president's words were an affront to millions of Americans and descendants of immigrants. Trump's racist comments "have legitimized fear and hatred of new Americans and people of color."

Trump used a longstanding slur against African Americans and other minorities. The Ďgo backí trope is deeply rooted in the history of racism in the United States. Racist is the proper term to apply to the language he used Sunday.

Condemning him is appropriate. His rhetoric and his actions and his insulting denials are divisive and un-American and he is not worthy of the office he holds.
Actually, the majority of Americans are not 'with her,' and she was called out on the House floor for calling President Trump "racist."

These were not racist comments. The "racist" claim is way over used, and applied to any statement made against someone who is not white. These four women would be just as controversial, just as universally disliked if they were white, because of their hatred for, and constant trashing of America. Omar has said that America was "founded on racism." This from a woman who hates Jews. Her anti-Semitism is well documented, and a resolution condemning her comments (later watered down) was introduced and passed on the House floor several months ago. Was it 'racist' to call her out?

These four use their status as "women of color" as a cudgel against anyone who dares to criticize them.

The President rightfully called them out for their constant trashing of America. He used the phrase, "go back where you came from," rhetorically, and most people know that. In the Reagan era, a phrase that was popularized was, "America: Love it or Leave it."

No one "fears" or has "hatred" for "New Americans." But we do legitimately dislike it when people who have come from third world countries (as refugees), then trash the country that took them in, 'gave them food and water' (so to speak), saving them from atrocities (in Omar's case).

Condemning the President for his legitimate criticism, and calling it 'racist' was inappropriate. I wonder why they never called Obama out for his highly charged rhetoric criticizing Americans he didn't like? I guess since they were directed at white Anglo-Saxon protestants it was acceptable.

He cares about attention, about getting his face on TV, dominating news cycles and never backing down.

I'm not a fan. I didn't (and won't vote for him) but I do take some enjoyment out of how he drives the politically correct and the SJWs absolutely bat-crp insane over his refusal to play by their rules.
The best thing in the world they could do is what you do to all trolls and attention seekers. Ignore him or at least tone down the outrage. If you tune into CNN, it's a non-stop outrage carnival. You would THINK they would get it by now!!
He does this for the attention and you are giving it to him.

Perhaps CNN should devote some of their outrage-air time to covering the possible candidates who might be taking on Trump in 2020 and informing the voters on their positions and backgrounds.
No. instead it's a non-stop parade of open mouth outrage when he's been acting like this since forever.
No, he doesn't do it for attention. President Trump does not need attention. He does it because he loves this country, and he dislikes it when it is trashed by a new crop of "freshman" who have taken over the Democrat Party, who are rabid socialists intent on transforming this country into Venezuela North, and destroying all that America stands for.

Wouldn't surprise to me hear that Pelosi and Hoyer cooked up the whole scene beforehand, as a way to make sure that the record of Trump being called racist on the floor of the House remains forever in the Congressional Record.

So I guess it's a matter of opinion who beat whom here. I can assure you, Pelosi will be wielding the gavel again tomorrow, and her position as Speaker isn't threatened in the least.

And you all can keep on giving each other lessons about typos.
That's my take on it.

Pelosi knew when she made the remark what the rules were. It was her intention to get called out. It is now and forever in the record.

AOC and rest of the squad would do well to pay attention to the corporatist. They might learn something.
