    Trump v. The Squad – Who’s Winning? (Reader Poll)

    Trump v. The Squad – Who’s Winning? (Reader Poll)

    The outrage news cycle is following a familiar pattern.

    I was in D.C. speaking at the DOJ Summit on Combatting Anti-Semitism when the latest outrage news cycle took place … in D.C.

    But I hardly knew it, I had other things on my mind.

    Like getting a selfie in front of the White House.

    I’ve only been in D.C. about a half dozen times in my life, and I have to say, standing with the White House behind me and the Washington Monument in the distance in front of me, still was moving.

    As was walking and seeing the dome of the U.S. Capitol in the distance.

    I’ll always be a tourist in D.C., someone just passing through, in awe of the majesty of the monuments and national landmarks.

    So I mostly ignored the outrage cycle over Trump’s tweets about “The Squad” – Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, and Ayanna Pressly.

    It all followed a familiar pattern: Trump says something outrageous, he’s accused of being racist (or a Russian spy), some Republicans declare he made a politically fatal error, he punches back some more, and a few days later the media is lamenting that Trump won the fight and is looking like a tactical genius. I don’t think it’s genius, more a gut sense.

    The Squad hold loathsome views — AOC compares our struggle to deal with the humanitarian crisis at the border to the Nazis rounding up Jews into concentration camps, while voting against funding to take care of the very same people; Omar is a dyed-in-the-wool anti-Semite who plays victim when called out, but succeeds in normalizing her hate; Tlaib lied about her support for BDS to gain money from liberal J Street, and cries racism when people criticize her anti-Israel agenda; Pressley made an incredibly racist statement in response to Trump that she has no need for brown and black people who don’t hold brown and black views.

    The Squad also uniformly are extreme leftists even by Democrat standards.

    Senator John Kennedy summed what a lot of people are thinking about how Democrats have been boxed in:

    So who won?

    The emerging wisdom is that Trump is winning.

    So let’s have a reader poll.

    Who is winning the Trump v. The Squad feud?

    Poll open until midnight Pacific Time on Thursday evening, July 18.

    The Squad! The Squad is always winning. Democrats need to promote The Squad 24/7!

    Well, the Squad — or The Poseur Posse, or The Four Stooges, or whatever name one prefers — sure ain’t winning.

    To the people above who think the tweet was wrong.

    I’ve felt embarassed by plenty of Trump tweets, and it’s part of the reason i did not vote for him, voted 3rd party instead.

    But I see nothing wrong with this sentiment.

    If someone can do nothing but trash America, especially soneone with privilege like a hollywood actor or member of congress, what is wrong with pointing out they can leave? Why is that offensive? They are offending everyone else with their anti-american talk, but we aren’t allowed to offend them in anyway?

    That is complete BS. We all know it. The left wants it so that it is un-PC to defend America but completely OK to trash it. Time to stop playing by their rules and take back the language before they finally get their way and turn the country into something we won’t like.

    Also the tweet isn’t about the tweet. The tweet put Nancy into a bind. The tweet distracted the Dems from policy changes that Trump put in place.

    Dumb question: Did Trump name anyone, or did he just refer to behavior?

      He just referred to behavior. You’ve heard the phrase: If the shoe fits, wear it? Well, these ladies loudly proclaimed that they were wearing that shoe.

      President Trump never named any single person.

      But as former GOP Arkansas Governor Huckabee commented yesterday, these 4 DEMs automatically stepped forward.

      Huckabee stated the folk saying
      “When you toss a rock over a high fence, it’s always the struck dog that howls.”

    These Jew-hating malignant pigs should record an album of Nazi songs.

    They can start with:

    “Horst Wessel Lied”
    “Kampflied der Nationalsozialisten”
    “Deutschland Erwache”
    “SS Marschiert in Feindesland”
    “Es zittern die morschen Knochen”
    “Vorwärts! Vorwärts!”
    “Heiliges Feuer”
    “Kameraden Laßt Erschallen”

    Democrat mega-donor and Israel supporter (how’s that for disfunction) Haim Saban just started a music company. He should sign them right up.
