I'm not sure why you are getting so excited over the country going down the toilet ... be it by the lunatic or the squad or whatever. This is a classic case of burning down the house to get rid of termites.

That is quite a population sample you've got there.

Anyone surprised that the Grand Old Party is a bunch of old racist white men?

Seems like it has been that way forever.
You mean the A team.

To get a litmus test of the "popularity" of the squad, note that the leftist Oregon governor, who supports similar policies, is facing a recall in a far left state.

Trump may have won the presidency with this move. "The Squad" is VERY unpopular among independents and the dems have just alienated a huge segment of the population. There are not enough illegals in the country to push the dems over the top.

Any savvy politicians would have distanced themselves as far as possible from these nuts. The dems, of course, have done the opposite and are essentially throwing an anchor to the already drowning party. The candidates they have are poor enough without an additional loadstone. Thanks Nancy! Trump has completely outflanked you.................. again.

Thanks Trump!
Lol... Okay.

Kinda like y'all tried to make Sheila Jacksonee the "face" of the Democrats? Or Frederica Wilson? Or Maxine Waters?

Seems like you guys have a tendency to find minority women to demonize to your base? Why is that?

Trump's tweet wasn't professional or presidential in candor at all, and yes, as someone in his office and stature, he should have used better verbiage when he wrote it ("remember the situation in your ancestral countries," etc). It still would have been generally inappropriate, but would have sounded somewhat more enlightened.

However, that's not the point. The people who have been screaming "racist" since the beginning and at everything he's said are now in a "boy who cried wolf" situation where no one who was a Trump supporter a week ago isn't still a Trump supporter. Regardless of whether the tweets were any combination of racist, anti-immigrant, xenophobic, etc, this is only the millionth time in the last week that he's been called these things and the actual effect they will have is pretty low.

The Democratic party should be concerned that these four freshman - I'm sorry, freshperson - ideologues who thus far have only served to be lightning rods for attention but have no realistic solutions or pathways to achieve them are now the face of the party. More people are paying attention to this fact than to what Donald Trump said or did since everyone is already used to hearing that he's a terrible racist kitten-eater.

Trump knew exactly what he was doing and it worked.

Great point! The only racism emanated from the Dems:


"We donít need black faces that donít want to be a black voice. We donít need Muslims that donít want to be a Muslim voice. We donít need queers that donít want to be a ***** voice."


WHY are the Dems pigeonholing people by race, religion, and/or sexual orientation? WHY do Dems assume people cannot represent anyone beyond those who are the same race, religion, and/or sexual orientation? That's the very EPITOME of racism and bigotry, and it's DISGUSTING!

And then when you take the entire quote in context, it changes...and I agree with the quote, what the msm is telling everyone is, but why would we expect for you to take anything in context?

Tuesday that what people are seeing and reading in the media about America's economy is "not what's happening."
Quote:
"This country is doing better than it's ever done before, economically," Trump said at the Veterans of Foreign Wars National Convention in Kansas City, Mo. "But it's all working out. Just remember: What you're seeing and what you're reading is not what's happening."

Cause he can't risk having them smell his fear and desperation and defeat?

Nah, that smell is lefties brain rotting, while trying to comprehend what was actually written, and cherry picking what feels good to them....

Again, take the entire quote in context....and then your eyes and ears will open, and probably get rid of that stench you smell....

Ummmm................... because all those people you listed also happen to be idiots?


Trump's approval rating went up 5% after taking on "The Squad".


Pelosi and the dem party now own the squad and their views. This has painted the dems into a far left, unpopular position. This is a political disaster for the dems.


AOC and Omar have been the best thing to happen to the republican party in years.

They’ve been playing to racism for many years. Exposes their bases racism every time. We heard the cheers and applause.

Lower unemployment rates (especially for minorities), wages growing faster for those at the lower end of the income spectrum, etc... That's "going down the toilet?" What do YOU think the right direction would be? Higher unemployment rates, especially for minorities? Wages stagnant or dropping for the lower end of the income spectrum while the rich get richer? THAT'S what you want? That's sheer lunacy.
