Trump says Dems should go back to totally broken and crime infested places from which they came

as opposed to Trump...

...who grew up tending his Dad's rose garden right here in Queens?


more hate-filled lying tweets for Trump's goose-steppers:

“Why don’t they go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came.”

“So interesting to see 'Progressive' Democrat Congresswomen, who originally came from countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe, the worst, most corrupt and inept anywhere in the world (if they even have a functioning government at all), now loudly and viciously telling the people of the United States, the greatest and most powerful Nation on earth, how our government is to be run.”

Tlaib was born in the United States and Omar, whose family fled war-torn Somalia when she was a child, is an American citizen.

A clumsy attempt to divide the House that backfired.

Quote
Madame Speaker
When @realDonaldTrump tells four American Congresswomen to go back to their countries, he reaffirms his plan to “Make America Great Again” has always been about making America white again. Our diversity is our strength and our unity is our power.

Rather than attack Members of Congress, he should work with us for humane immigration policy that reflects American values.

*********************

It's today's example of unfitness to serve. We'e never had anyone so remotely below the mark.

It's indefensible. And yet his supporters and apologists remain silent.

It's example # 8973498723 of how so many of his voters get all queasy when he says things like this, yet still prefer him to anyone else. And then when you call them out, either get defensive or just shut down.

The targets of Trumps remarks also included Reps. Ayanna Pressley (born in Cincinnati) and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (born in New York).

It's birtherism revisited.

I am sure that, as far as Trump is concerned, the only people who should qualify for US citizenship are those who are white. Everyone else is just an "illegal," and should be de-naturalized even if they were born here.

Next installment will be the reclassification of a variety ethnic groups that were once considered not "really" white, like the Irish, the Italians, the Jews, etc etc etc.

He also mentioned today, as part of his enthusiasm for how well conditions are at his concentration camps (in contrast to Pence's statements) that the camps are "also loaded up with a big percentage of criminals......"

Open your mouth, Trump voters. He's got a lot to give you.

I know some of y’all are appalled but literally every Black or Brown person in public life has been told “go back to Africa” at one point or another.

“The media is starting to tune Trump out, and it’s helping him in the polls”

[www.washingtonpost.com]

“I’m not the first to observe that if the president wants better approval ratings, all he needs to do is shut up. Every time he stops tweeting, his numbers improve. Besides, the economy is good, and the public grows fond of presidents who preside over strong economies. Barring a recession, if Trump would just let the economic news speak for itself, he could probably sail to reelection.

Luckily for Democrats, Trump seems constitutionally incapable of learning from experience. Unluckily for the Democrats, their primaries are mimicking the effect of Trump holstering his Twitter finger. The media is now too busy analyzing the Democratic race to provide wall-to-wall coverage of Trump’s every tweet.”

——

At least the media is giving this latest racist attack plenty of coverage.

Trump gets plenty of coverage. Everything he tweets is being discussed somewhere - it's just that there is other stuff going on now too.

no @#$%&! He is so concerned with his base... he just doesn't care about the middle... FORGET the left. This guy getting more than 35% of the popular vote in 2020 will be astonishing to me given the 4 year look we had of Trump. All of those, 'I dunno, I'll vote for Trump, I guess...' types should be able to see the light by 2020. I hope...

I always have to kind of laugh at this - after 1808, it was illegal to import slaves to the United States, so virtually all US slaves born in Africa “immigrated” before then, representing 1.2 million of the 7.2 million total population of the US in 1810. Of course, the vast, vast majority of other immigrants to the US arrived well after that time, with the peak year of (mostly “white”) immigration coming nearly a century later (1907), at ~1.2 million.

...which means that the average African-American can trace back their ancestry in America waaay longer than most of the rest of us.

Go back to Africa? Go back to Europe, you johnny-come-latelys! The truth is, black folks have been here a lot longer than most of us white folks.

He's had them whipped for a while now. Maybe Romney will call it out, he does it pretty regularly but I don't think anyone cares.

And this is why you always report the "minutia" the President says.

From 2016, no probably before, so many people dismissed what he said as either rhetoric or stuff-that-wouldn't-happen.

No actually, he's a racist and he wants to hurt people. It's pretty simple, and it should not ever be allowed to be normalized. I've never understood why there's misunderstanding about "where his heart is."

I have friends and family who will say, "well, he's trying to the right thing, same as anyone else (but gosh, I guess he might sorta be flawed, just like everyone else.)"

No. NOT like "everyone else."

If moderate Dems in purple districts and states think they need to tread lightly, it's not a stretch to realize why so many more moderate Republicans don't regularly speak out, yeah?

No one wants to blink first, or they don't think it matters, or, or whatever. WaPo noted that this weekend's pow-wow of "normal" Republicans at a private gathering include several "never Trumpers" who have decided they can't make it in the Party without him.

Quote

While some have become prominent figures of the anti-Trump resistance — denouncing him in op-eds and on cable news — others have offered policy advice from outside perches, and a select few have quietly, though mostly unsuccessfully, angled for administration jobs, hopeful that a mea culpa could end their days in purgatory.

This weekend, a few dozen once-prominent GOP foreign policy figures, including some original “never Trumpers,” are gathering at a private Reagan Institute retreat in Beaver Creek, Colo., to promote and preserve the 40th president’s “conservative internationalist” approach to foreign affairs. Yet the White House has shown little willingness to tap into this wellspring of expertise, even as Trump cycles through national security aides and faces a dwindling pool of experienced staffers for a potential second term.

The ostracizing of the group has led some to reconsider their roles in a prominent public movement to stop Trump three years ago.

It goes on to quote a few who would not consider signing another "never Trump" document like they did back in 2016. I suppose once the unthinkable achieves power, if YOU still desire power, you either @#$%& or get off the pot.

We've all had conversations of fantasy, where in our dreams logic and rational thought wins the argument and the person. Idealism is more powerful. Irrational behavior is stronger than crystal methamphetamine. (You can at least physically TAKE the meth away.)

Awesome response to Trump from Rep. Jim Himes of CT:

Unlike the Democratic Congresswomen realDonaldTrump
attacked today, I actually am a foreign-born Member of Congress. But I’m a white male of European descent, so there’s no chance he’ll attack me.

His tantrum has nothing to do with birthplace.

Aw, Mr. Cobb must have forgotten how just the other day Trump "defended" House Democratic leadership by tweeting The Squad shouldn't call those poor moderates such racist things.

Things move quickly, and it can be tough to correctly identify an "attack" vs a 'lil spanking.

He's trying to keep the Pelosi v Squad thing alive.

He's firing up his base. Look for "Lock Them Up" to be the new chant.

He likes to upset the liberals. He loves the reactions we all accommodate him with.

Honestly, who still thinks that "economic inequality" drove his voters? tsk tsk, time to give that one up for good.

It's one thing for him to say that those born in America should go back where they came from. But the breathtaking part for me was the idea that members of Congress should have nothing to say about how the country is run. Remember that ceremony in January 2017, Don? Remember the oath you swore to preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution? Meant about as much to you as your wedding vows, I see.

It makes the claims of the Tea Party that they were all about being true to the Constitution a farce because I'm sure that almost all of them that are still here are ardent Trump supporters. Of course, I suppose they look at the Constitution like they do their Bible - seeing whatever they want to see in it and ignore the parts that get in the way.

I think it drove some of them, because not all voters think in lock step. There are zillions of them that think absolutely nothing of stuff like this racist crap because in their mind it's a total non sequitur, somehow completely irrelevant to everything on their radar. Ask or confront them about racism and their response isn't Yes or No, but "Why are you even bothering with this noise?" Not a hot button at all.

On a weekend when few people pay attention.

And they're (generally) not calling it "racism."

NPR blew it entirely and made the "bland as we can make it" move, reporting "some democrats are calling it racially insensitive..."

It's racist.

It's not just racist. It's one of the most common things that racists say when they feel especially empowered to be racist in public.

There is no hand-waving to make this look like a mistake in phrasing. There is no "you're reading into it" element to this.

It's not simply "bigoted" and it's not "insensitive." It's blatant flaming explosive no-holds-barred outright unequivocally racist.
