Who is weak and insecure?

On it goes.

President Donald Trump on Sunday again ripped into four Democratic congresswomen of color who’ve been the target of his sustained attacks, calling them “weak” and “insecure” minutes after blasting a Washington Post story on the fallout over his initial comments about the members a week earlier.

“I don’t believe the four Congresswomen are capable of loving our Country,” Trump tweeted. “They should apologize to America (and Israel) for the horrible (hateful) things they have said. They are destroying the Democrat Party, but are weak & insecure people who can never destroy our great Nation!”

The Washington Post reported Saturday that Trump’s own top aides did not think he fully understood what he had done in posting racist rhetoric about the four congresswoman of color, nicknamed “The Squad,” on Twitter before a golf outing last weekend.

Well, that’s an easy call, because Trump doesn’t fully understand anything. He’s dimwitted and ignorant and uncomprehending to a degree that’s difficult to take in.

The Post report, which was based on interviews “with 26 White House aides, advisers, lawmakers and others involved in the response,” said Trump had posted the tweets after watching an episode of “Fox & Friends.” He wanted to elevate the four congresswomen, telling his advisers he thought they were good foils, the newspaper reported.

Elevate them as targets, that is. Elevate them the better to throw insults and threats at them. Elevate them so that others will throw insults and threats at them too; elevate them to put them in danger.

Trump’s tweets were widely condemned, with Democrats and a small number of Republicans saying they were racist. The Post reported that Trump “acted alone — impulsively following his gut to the dark side of American politics, and now the country would have to pick up the pieces.” Aides and allies, the report said, “would work behind the scenes to try to fix the mess without any public admission of error because that was not the Trump way.”

Disgusting cowards and quislings. They should all resign.

House Oversight Committee Chairman Elijah Cummings, D-Md., said the president’s comments have brought up “the same feelings that I had over 50 some years ago” as a civil rights activist.

“And it’s very, very painful,” Cummings told ABC’s “This Week.” “I just don’t think this is becoming of the president of the United States of America, the leader of the entire world.”

The four congresswomen, Cummings added, were “some of the most brilliant young people I have met.”

“These are folks and women who love their country, and they work very hard and they want to move us toward a more perfect union that our founding fathers talked about,” Cummings said. “When you disagree with the president, suddenly you’re a bad person. Our allegiance is not to the president; our allegiance is to the Constitution of the United States of America and the American people.”

Asked if Trump is a racist, Cummings said, “Yes, no doubt about it,” adding, “I tried to give him the benefit of the doubt.”

Let’s not anybody try to do that any more ever again.
