Sen. Amy Klobuchar on Trumpís racist attacks: ĎEvery day, itís a trapí
Washington Post ^ | Robert Costa and Amy B Wang

Posted on 07/27/2019 8:33:33 PM PDT by simpson96

Sen. Amy Klobuchar’s presidential campaign launched in February on a snow-pelted stage in Minneapolis. It has since struggled to gain traction in a crowded 2020 field — and former vice president Joe Biden, who leads the polls, has a centrist pitch that overlaps with the Minnesota Democrat’s.

(snip)

“He has chosen to go after four women,” Klobuchar said, referring to Omar and three of her freshman Democratic colleagues. “He has chosen to tell them they should ‘go home,’ basically, which is a racist code word.”

Klobuchar said Democrats must counter Trump but warned that they cannot be pulled into a political riptide in which they spend each day responding to him rather than making their own case to voters.

“Every day, it’s a trap,” she said. “Yes, you stand up [against racism], but you have to acknowledge that it’s a trap.”

While Klobuchar gave support to Omar amid Trump’s continued barbs, she said she would not commit to inviting Omar to speak at the 2020 Democratic National Convention, should she be the nominee.

““Every day, it’s a trap,” she said.”

First one starting to get it. Too bad though, no one else will be able to.

Gracious, can’t even get past the headline. Racism is a given. We are not going to be able to get along with these people.

““Every day, it’s a trap,” she said.”

Yet every PC idiot candidate sticks part of their anatomy into the Trump’s traps for them.

Amy who? She needs a cool nickname like HeelsUp Harris, Crazy Uncle, Joe, and Fauxckahontus. She ain’t going nowhere without a nickname. She better call DJT and ask for a favor.

Notice how Trump is primarily going after Democrats who are NOT running for president. He’s drowning out the candidates by blasting others - forcing that to be the news of the day. It is BRILLIANT!

It is a trap, she is right. Too bad though, they have no recourse.

He reminds me of Johnny Carson, “it’s bad in Baltimore”. Then they yell how bad is it? Then Trump says “Well, I’ll tell you how bad it is” and away they go.
