Trump shoots, he scores.
Trump unloaded on the "Squad" the other day and it galvanized democrats who ran to the defense of the four America hating Congresswomen- even the ones who don't particularly like them:
Nancy Pelosi, the newly recognized racist, has a big problem on her hands. The DNC has a civil war brewing.
It takes no small amount of skill to get, say, the centrist co-chair of the Problem Solvers Caucus, Rep. Josh Gottheimer, rising in defense of his four progressive Democratic colleagues who comprise the Squad. But our president has a way with words. Over the course of a weekend, the political conversation shifted from whether the House Democratic majority was collapsing from the inside to whether Republicans will speak up against their presidents latest tirade. Statements from Republican members of Congress about the presidents remarks only began trickling out Monday morning, and additional members will be asked whether they consider Trumps tweets racist when Congress returns for the week. And, as Speaker Nancy Pelosi told her colleagues Monday morning, the chamber will also be voting on a resolution condemning them. While a resolution condemning tweets is, as a legislative mechanism, exactly as toothless as a resolution condemning tweets sounds, it will give Democrats an opportunity to put Republicans on the record either for or against their party leaders most recent thumbed outburst.
Pelosi refused to respond directly to Ocasio-Cortezs accusation at a Thursday news conference but said she had to speak out to defend her moderate members after Ocasio-Cortezs top aide accused them of racist actions.This left the door open for Trump, who came to Pelosi's defense:
Our members took offense at that. I addressed that. How theyre interpreting and carrying it to another place is up to them, but Im not going to be discussing it any further, Pelosi, a California Democrat, told reporters.
Saikat Chakrabarti, Ocasio-Cortezs chief of staff, referred to moderate Democratic groups in a tweet last month as New Southern Democrats who are hell bent to do to black and brown people today what the old Southern Democrats did in the 40s.
The aide later deleted the tweet but posted other tweets saying the moderates actions in this case, to pass a compromise border spending bill still enable a racist system.
The tweet has emerged as a key flash point in a simmering feud between Pelosi and the Squad freshman Democratic Representatives Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts, Rashida Tlaib of Michigan, and Ocasio-Cortez of New York one that burst into a full boil this week after simmering for months when Pelosi told The New York Times that the four didnt have any following, citing their lonely votes last month against a Democratic-crafted bill to address the southern border crisis.
Then the "Jihad Squad" sprang into action to once again prove Trump right. Ilhan Omar introduced a resolution supportive of Israel BDS and likened Israel to Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union:
President Donald Trump, in a surprising turn, defended Democrat Nancy Pelosi amid her dispute with Rep. Alexandria Ocascio-Cortez and other freshman Democrats, saying the House speaker "is not a racist."
"I'll tell you something about Nancy Pelosi that you know better than I do, she is not a racist. OK? She is not a racist. For them to call her a racist is a disgrace," Trump said while speaking to reporters before departing on Marine One.
Under the guise of free speech, you see:
U.S. Rep. Ilhan Omar proposed a resolution this week supporting the right to boycott Israel, likening the boycott of the Jewish state to boycotts of Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union.
Omars resolution seeks to push back against U.S. laws banning the boycott of Israel and affirms the right of Americans to organize boycotts of foreign countries if they so wish. While the resolution doesnt explicitly name Israel or the pro-Palestinian Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement, she told media outlets that the resolution concerns the Jewish state.
We are introducing a resolution to really speak about the American values that support and believe in our ability to exercise our First Amendment rights in regard to boycotting, Omar told Al-Monitor.
And it is an opportunity for us to explain why it is we support a nonviolent movement, which is the BDS movement, she added.
The resolution attracted some Republican detractors, with Rep. Lee Zeldin slamming Omar for introducing it, saying she brought her hateful twist by propping up the BDS movement.
Israel is our best ally in the Mid East; a beacon of hope, freedom & liberty, surrounded by existential threats, Zeldin wrote in a tweet. Shame on Rep Omar for bringing her hateful twist on that reality to House Foreign today, propping up the BDS movement & blaming Israel for all of its challenges.

Trump has made them the face of the democrat party.
Just in time for 2020 elections.
“likening the boycott of the Jewish state to boycotts of Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union.”
Ha ha. Right. I’m sure Netanyahu will let them in for that!
Likely now they are rweinding the movie of the Trump presidency now that they know the big reveal and looking for things that they thought were Trump being dumb and getting out of luckily and saying "oh wow, he actually did that on purpose too and we fell for it".
And now knowing that Trump has been simply toying with them all along, they are probably starting to panic over their political futures.
Amazing to see cowardly feckless lib jews hate Israel with her, when Israel is the place of refuge for them, notwithstanding their ancestors in America owned slaves by the way
Omg if there is a troller’s hall of fame trump in
I prefer Coven to Squad.
"Following decades of conventional military attacks, terrorism, tunnels, kidnappings, suicide bombings, missiles, and murders, BDS is just one more tool being used by the Arab/Muslim world in its continuing war against Israel."
She Owns It.
