Playing to his base, the divider in Chief picked a twitter war with “the Squad” (progressive U.S. House of Representative members Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York, Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, Rashida Tlaib of Michigan and Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts) by imploring them all to “go home” to the broken countries that they come from, fix those first, and then come back to the United States.
Even though all of them (except Omar) were born right here in the United States.
Maybe it’s our broken country that he wants them to fix.
So Trump has moved from his not so subtle dog-whistle racism directly to all out flaming racism. To rally his base.
I’ve been saying for some time that Trump’s election was the “F U Election” where the primary objective of Trump supporters was just to stick it to us “liberal elites” as much as they could.
Of course, there is the saying, be careful what you wish for, because you might get it. What the Trumpistas are buying themselves is a full on political civil war. There are plenty of white assholes who love this stuff, but there are now also many white suburban women who don’t like this stuff at all. And many people sitting on the fence who are not fond of naked racism of the kind Trump is now indulging.
Careful Donaldo, Obergropenführer for the masses. Be careful what you wish for.
Is Trump playing this up to distract attention from his links to Epstein?
It’s a risky strategy if he wants more than his core voters next time.
