"I don't think President Trump is a racist. I don't think his original tweet was racist. I think it was a poor choice of words, which is why he clarified," Kennedy said, pointing out that Trump has since said that anyone who hates America is free to leave.

"I'm not sure the president should exchange playground insults with them. When you try to argue with a fool, that proves there are two. But the president decided to do so," Kennedy continued. "The simple fact of the matter is that the four congresswomen think that America was wicked in its origins."

"They are entitled to their opinion. They are Americans. But I'm entitled to my opinion, and I just think they are left-wing cranks and they are the reason that there are directions on a shampoo bottle," Kennedy said. "I think we should ignore them."

LOL, nailed it. "The Squad" act like spoiled 2 year olds throwing a temper tantrum. They got away with insults and bullying tactics for so long they didn't think anyone would actually dare stand up to them. They played up the "POC privilege" card thinking that left them free of accountability or condemnation no matter how vile they got. Then they ran into an adult that actually said "NO" to them for perhaps the firsst time in their lives...and the tantrum gets louder.

Go back where you came from is one of the oldest racist dog whistles.

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...

Once again...we have a correspondent who doesn’t understand what a “dog whistle” is.

For clarity...it is a signal that can be heard by the dog, but by no one else.

If you heard the whistle...then you’re the dog.

Surprising how many people use this idiom without really understanding what they’re saying.

Another thread to hold onto the base after Trump's Trainwreck? Or maybe it is just the old adage of: misery loves company?

Either way, fear and GOP defeat are in the air.... I find this very encouraging for the USA!

Who knew. I have told at least 100 white Cali transplants that, in the last 10 years.

Right it's not offensive to you...but it is to those impacted. A dog whistle.

Trump: "Go back to the countries with broken, corrupt govts, fix them, then come back and show us how you did it"


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.

Youre right, "Make American Great Again" is the dog whistle!
