Trump vs "The Gang of Four"

2 minute read

July 17, 2019

There’s been a lot of commentary on the whole Trump/Gang of Four blow-up. Frankly, a lot of the big name pontificators are too full of themselves to see what’s really going on, so here a couple that are both entertaining and worth reading.

Nina Bookout at the Victory Girls blog examines that Trump-bashing press conference that she says “backfired spectacularly.”  It gave the Republicans scads of video clips for the 2020 election, like Rep. Omar dodging and saying, “I will not dignify that with an answer” when asked about accusations that she’s a communist and supports al-Qaeda.  Not to mention the profanity, the false accusations and wild misstatements of fact, the victimhood mongering, and the demands for impeachment for the “most corrupt Administration” in history without naming any actual crimes that have been committed other than the discredited “Russian collusion” fable. 

And let’s not forget the bogus claim that migrants in federal border facilities have to “drink out of toilets!”  It’s an institutional plumbing fixture with a sink on the top and a toilet on the bottom.  Sorry if it doesn’t come up to HGTV aesthetic standards, but if they don’t like it, they can always (wait for it!) go back where they came from. No, literally: the so-called "detainees" are not being detained; they can go home to their native counties anytime they want.  Which, incidentally, is yet another way in which these facilities are nothing like Nazi concentration camps.

In fact, that presser was so bad, it made Ms Bookout reconsider about whether Trump’s original tweets were really a blunder or a risky political calculation.  The left keeps telling us Trump is the bull in the china shop, but when every time he waves a red flag, they charge headfirst into the nearest wall, you have to wonder who’s really the bull here.

And here’s an interesting take on Monday’s political melodrama. This blogger’s parents and their friends were all immigrants (the old fashioned kind who actually came here legally and loved their adopted country).  This piece makes the argument that what Trump is doing is pushing back against the leftist takeover of the language and reclaiming the right to voice obvious truths publicly and say what you honestly think instead of just what’s politically correct (a right I have always refused to give up, no matter what kind of trash gets posted on my Twitter feed.) If so, let’s hope it’s only step one.

    I loved your picture of the bull who actually has possession of the red cape! When will these slightly odd ladies figure out that Trump is actually a genius? No joke! His moves have shown that he actually anticipates what foolish notion these four will come up with next and by jove he is always ready!! Come on girls...give up! Its already over!!

    I am happy to see an article referring to these socialist congresswomen as "The Gang of Four". I started using this in my tweets last week and was hoping it would catch on since it fits perfectly when you realize it is another case of history repeating itself.

    I live in Michigan's 13th district and it is embarrassing to have Rashida Tlaib represent my district. Southeast Michigan has always been a democratic stronghold (the result being Detroit looking like Hiroshima in 1945 today) and most of the residents are shocked she won. The Squad is a disgrace to women period regardless of color. How about working for the districts you represent and not playing the race card or acting like ghetto bitches to show your ignorance of fair representation of your constituents ?

    Well said Governor. Our good President stated what many of us want to. Loved his delivery and their reaction is priceless. Thank you for your great efforts for the President and for America. PS - hoping to see your daughter with a Governor title soon.

    I fully agree with this. They want to cheapen our country instead of building it up. These four remind me of the mean girls in high school. They are not mature enough to hold a government office.
