Crowd chants "send her back"About Rep. Ilhan Omar at Trump rally
The Trump rally was lit last night. The media was freaking out (I know, how can you tell?) because Trump was dragging Congress's four intersectional princesses (THE SQUAD) at his North Carolina rally. Was anyone surprised? The crowd chanted, "send her back" when Trump mentioned Omar, which I thought was exciting because I knew I would see all the woke, Pulitzer-winning corporate cable media heads explode like in that movie "Scanners." (CAUTION: GRAPHIC)
I'm at the point now where I judge Trump's remarks based on how crazy they are going to drive his detractors.
President Trump, at a fiery "Make America Great Again" campaign rally Wednesday night in Greenville, North Carolina, blasted four progressive congresswomen, Reps. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, Rashida Tlaib of Michigan, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York and Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts, with whom he continues to spar after an ongoing feud over comments he made against them that critics deemed "racist."
"Let 'em leave... they're always telling us how to run it, how to do this, how to do that. You know what? If they don't love it, tell 'em to leave it," Trump said of the congresswomen, doubling down on similar comments he made on Twitter earlier in the week.
The average American doesn't hate America, so "Hate America" is a tough platform to sell in order to mobilize people against Trump. Regular people don't like being told they are racists, Nazis, homophobic, bigoted privileged folk who achieved their success on the backs of oppressing minorities. It's offensive. Especially coming from a gaggle of ladies who have achieved significant political power. All this talk about Trump being divisive, all this talk about putting a Democrat in the presidency to unify the country, is just complete and total garbage.
Impeachment FAIL: Less than half of House Democrats supported impeachment vote
The House of Representatives on Wednesday voted to set aside a resolution by Rep. Al Green, D-Texas, to introduce article of impeachment against President Trump – the third time the Houston-area lawmaker has taken a shot at impeaching the president, but the first since Democrats regained control of the House.
Lawmakers voted 332-95 to table Green’s resolution, which was widely opposed by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and other top Democrats worried that the measure would force vulnerable swing-district lawmakers into peril ahead of the 2020 elections. The bipartisan vote shelved any chance of bringing forth articles of impeachment against Trump in the near future.
Why not more support if Trump is a Nazi/Hitler/child killer/white supremacist/Cheeto? What happened? Poor Al Green. This is the third time this guy has tried to make "impeachment" happen.
"The president has committed an impeachable offense," Green said on the House floor earlier on Wednesday. "Yesterday, we condemned him for that. Today is our opportunity to punish him." WOMP WOMP.
