Not to mention that he falsely thinks he speaks for "real Americans", as if the other half of the country's population have just drifted ashore

What shampoo does Trump use, anyway? Just curios so that I won't end up looking like that

Yep, lets not let the rules of law deflect the issue

Unlike the desperate liberal fanatics, I have no need to "control the narrative". It's much more fun to let them speak freely, and then point out how silly and whiny they are, and why.

I hope they keep it up, and expand it, providing excellent examples of why they are losing more and more. Watching the Dems shoot themselves in the foot time and again, is splendid entertainment. As well as beneficial to the country as normal Americans see how misguided and loony these people really are.

Anyone supporting and placing confidence and trust in a grifter who would be more than happy to rip them and their granny off at his bogus university is the one who is not very bright. Yeah.

His clarification is hypocrisy. Telling people to leave the US if they don't like where it's headed. But also telling people coming here on asylum to stay where they are and fix the situation...
Only one iteration of "racist" or "racism" and only one reference to a "dog whistle"? Come on, I'm sure you can do better.


For example: Racist Trump racistly stated one of the oldest racist dog whistles in a blatantly racist way to make sure racists understood the racist trope of racistly telling people to leave the racist U.S.

Your incessant whining about people talking about the wrong things rather indicates otherwise.

Once again the usual Democrats are up to their usual tactics, misquoting the President, concentrating on minor quibbles, ignoring the important parts, twisting what he said into something else, and the bashing him for that instead of the main point he was making.

These people need some new tactics. These haven't worked for them for a long time. And the more they try it, the more people learn to ignore them, and the farther behind they fall.

It's instructive to look at what the President DID say... all of it, for a change.

On July 14, 2019, President Trump said in a series of tweets:

So interesting to see “Progressive” Democrat Congresswomen, who originally came from countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe, the worst, most corrupt and inept anywhere in the world (if they even have a functioning government at all), now loudly and viciously telling the people of the United States, the greatest and most powerful Nation on earth, how our government is to be run.

Why don’t they go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came. Then come back and show us how it is done. These places need your help badly, you can’t leave fast enough.


Obviously, he wasn't kicking them out of the country, or even implying it, contrary to what the Dem fanatics are now frantically screaming.

He was saying that, if they wanted to tell the rest of us how to "fix" the United States' problems, they should first go to the corrupt, failing countries they favor, fix the far more severe problems there, and then come back to the US and tell us how they did it.

He was implying, obviously, that these congressmen couldn't tell a severe problem if it bit them, much less have any idea how to fix it. And he was suggesting that they get some experience in solving ACTUAL severe problems, before telling others how to do it.

The congressmen, of course, absolutely do not want to discuss any of that. So they are seizing on his mistake where he said "who originally came from countries...", as though that were the most important thing he said.

They clearly want to divert the discussion from the most important points: That they have little or no idea what they are talking about and merely want to run down the United States, while offering no solutions and being unwilling to even try. Instead, they keep screaming and whining that he wants to throw them out, wants to throw colored people out, etc. etc..... none of which he ever said or even implied.

But it beats talking about what he did say.... and the fact that they cannot reply to it.

It's a standard Democrat-fanatic technique to ignore most of what someone says, pick out an unimportant quibble, and concentrate all their attention and vitriol on that, trying to put people on the defensive over minor matters so they won't talk about the main points that are actually important.

And they are doing it more and more, as they continue to lose their voter base and Trump moves closer to re-election despite their loudest and most hysterical efforts.
Spot on! Hearing his "quote" loudly proclaimed on several national news sources of "go back where you came from", has an ENTIRELY different meaning than hearing ALL of what he said in context. After hearing what I kept hearing on the news...I googled the entire statement, and thought...wow, the media is totally misrepresenting what he said! But of course...that was their intent all along. Did he say those words...yes, he did, in the midst of another few clarifying sentences...which were of course not mentioned by the media. Does it mean what the media is implying it meant when you read his entire statement...not even close. And they knew most people wouldn't have enough critical thinking skills, or curiosity, to check it out.

Insulting the goon squad is hardly racist.
