Posted on 07/15/2019 2:33:35 PM PDT by reaganaut1
Trump outdid himself with anti-squad tweets over the weekend suggesting that the four Democratic congresswomen go back where they came from. The tweets were clearly trolling and meant to be sardonic supposedly they are to go back home, fix their countries, and then return here to tell us how its done, with Nancy Pelosi happy to pay the airfare.
They are several things to say about this: 1) As always, presidents shouldnt troll; 2) on a tactical level, its incredibly dumb for the president to insert himself into the middle of the Democratic circular firing squad between Nancy Pelosi and Co. and AOC and Co.; 3) politically, this kind of thing repels Republican suburban women, and hell need to win back some increment of them in 2020; 4) substantively, three of the four targets were born in this country, but his tweets suggest that somehow they cant be true Americans; 5) as for Ilhan Omar, who came here as a refugee, its absolutely fair game to excoriate her for being a poisonous ingrate, but the barroom-stool taunt of go back to the country you came from isnt the way to do it.
A poor show all around.
Can I say it first? Screw off, Rich.
ESAD, Rich Lowry.
Is anyone watching the Justice Democrat Squad press conference, where they dissemble about their motives, accuse Trump of racism and bigotry, and call for his impeachment? I thought of starting a thread, but didn’t think this would go on for long enough.
F*** the National Review. I miss Bill Buckley.
“...A poor show all around...”
Oh bs, the women in question are America hating communist extremists.
You really like posting these holier than thou never-Trump trash articles dont you?
I think it’s great.
Love it or leave it.
Typical B/S from them then. Nothing to see here, move along.
Have you found a candidate you can support in 2020 yet, reaganaut1?
Remember when the President used to ask if we’re tired of winning yet? Remarkably, Rich Lowry’s answer is “Yes”.
Why won’t the bastards ask why it was ok Obummer caged kids first.
Well, we all know about those Republican suburban women. They like everything nice. They don't really believe in abortion but they never speak up because it's not nice. Anyhow, what would the neighbors think? They don't want their neighbors to think they are one of those right-wing kooks. Heaven forbid—not that! These women want to be thought of as nice.
I hope National Review goes the way of the Weekly Standard.
Nah, I don't watch TV news of any kind, and if it's been posted online, I wouldn't watch it anyway. I didn't realize that posting to Twitter was an impeachable offense. If that's the case, then every politician who uses it should be impeached. What turds these people are for just suggesting it.
Little fag Rich....SHUT-UP!
