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

Watch for the nod

Trump is pretending to disavow the “Send her back!” chanting at his Nürnberg rally Wednesday, and the media are helping him, but the disavowal is absurd. He stood there smirking while the MAGA hats chanted.

Trump attempted to distance himself from the racist chant on Thursday, saying “I wasn’t happy with that message that they gave last night.”

“It was quite a chant, and I felt a little bit badly about it. But I will say this, I did — and I started speaking very quickly. But it started up rather fast,” the president added.

However, as NPR’s Tamara Keith noted, “in reality, Trump stood there for 13 seconds as the chant continued, waiting for it to die down

The pettyness of him.

Full-on Nuremberg rally but at the same time, trivial childish schoolyard taunting and gloating about being called “sir.”

Condemnations waste their sweetness on the desert air

Condemnation was swift. Too bad it won’t stop him.

Democrats rushed to condemn Donald Trump after his supporters erupted into chants of “send her back” at the mention of Minnesota congresswoman Ilhan Omar, one of the targets of the president’s recent racist tweets.

The Vermont senator Bernie Sanders was one of the first to offer his support to Omar following the chants at the Trump rally in North Carolina on Wednesday night, accusing the president of “stoking the most despicable and disturbing currents in our society” and called him the “most dangerous president in the history of our country”.

Dangerous and destructive. This shit he’s stoking isn’t going to go away even if he vanishes in a puff … Read the rest

The scene drew reactions of shock and horror

So we’re going for the full Nuremberg now. We knew he was planning to, but it still comes as a shock to see how far he will go.

Goaded on by the president, a crowd at a Donald Trump rally on Wednesday night chanted “send her back! send her back!” in reference to Ilhan Omar, a US congresswoman who arrived almost 30 years ago as a child refugee in the United States.

Trump used the 2020 campaign rally in Greenville, North Carolina, to attack Omar and three other Democratic congresswomen – Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York, Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts and Rashida Tlaib of Michigan – calling them “hate-filled extremists”.

Which is deeply ironic given how accurately that describes … Read the rest
