Im just ignoring him now... everything that spews from his mouth is the anti-truth. NWFP
This was an absolutely brilliant move by Trump, although I can appreciate your not enough of a free thinker to see that.
I doubt you get much coverage of these four women were you are because none of them has done a positive thing yet and the press here covers for all their bad things. Admittedly I don't know much about Ayanna Pressley, she's not relevant at all, tbh not sure how she got included in this. However the other three, truly are America hating, far left, radicals that are openly vicious anti-semites. Again you probably don't get much coverage of that where you are, but Omar has made numerous racist, anti-Semitic comments, then often makes more while trying to defend the originals. The house had to vote to condemn her comments recently, although the bill was eventually watered down to generic condemnation of anti-discrimination because these other 2 or 3 women made a lot of noise and scared old Nancy Pelosi caved. Omar has also made several comments that can be easily taken as soft on terrorism, she was recently in the spotlight again for downplaying 9/11 like it was a nothing event, except the inconvenience it caused the muslim community. Some background on Omar, she was born in Somalia, went to a refugee camp in Kenya at something like 4-6 years old, then spent somewhere between 6-8 years there before she was brought to the US. For a women to start her life in those circumstances, then to be rescued by the US and provided so many opportunities by the US that she was able to become an elected US official at 36 should be an amazing story of success, instead she hates the US and has no appreciation for what it has provided her. Oh, she's also currently under tax fraud investigation because she was married to two people at one time, one of them her own brother, and didn't file her taxes accordingly.
So these women are admittedly the radical fringe of the party, they don't represent the views of the majority of democratic voters. However they have become the face and thought leaders of the party and they are directing the policy that the presidential candidates are all adopting, which again isn't popular with much of the base. They are very loud and very arrogant about their positions. Just last week AOC, who has been vocally criticizing the moderate members of the dem party and organizing fellow radicals to run against them, got into a fight with the Dem leader Pelosi because Pelosi was trying to downplay their significance to the party. This resulted in AOC publicly accusing Pelosi of being racist (man I love when the snake starts eating itself). However this didn't work for AOC because prominent members of the party started coming out and defending Pelosi and speaking out against these young radical members. Now if the dems have any shot at beating Trump, it's by running a moderate., that's why a guy that was a complete joke the two previous times he ran for president, Biden, is now the front runner. So the way it was starting to play out is these women were starting to get relegated from the front lines of the party, which is exactly what the dems need to happen to win the presidency. In fact the dems are thinking of redistricting New York to eliminate AOC's seat, so she can't get re-elected. They are also thinking of primarying Omar.
So then along comes Donald Trump, knowing that internal democratic polls released on the weekend show support for AOC at 22% and Omar at 9% and that these are the people dragging the party down and that the Dems might finally shake themselves of this problem, he makes this tweet about these women, forcing the dems to all unite behind and defend these women, that frankly they dislike more than any Republican does. Then to put some icing on the cake, these women conduct a press conference, in which they refuse to denounce terrorism, where they outright lie about conditions at the border that have been debunked, they lie about Russian conspiracy theories that have been debunked, they show contempt for the county and it's laws, honestly it couldnt' have gone any better.
And also, please point out to me which aspect of those tweets are racist? The only real fault is that Omar is the only one from another country. However Tlaib clearly has more love for Palestine, her country of heritage, then the US. She wrapped herself in a Palestine flag when elected, she hangs a Palestine flag in her office. And this is the women that screamed at her victory party that she was going to "impeach that fornicate". Now whatever you think of Trump personally, it's completely appalling for an elected official of the US to speak about the office of the countries leader in that way.
