    If you listened to what Trump said and you heard a dog whistle, you are probably a little b****.

    Who exactly are you talking about. He didn't name anyone in his tweets.

    It really is great entertainment watching the TDS sufferers, even on this forum, just foam at the mouth when Trump tweets.

    Meanwhile, his support keeps going up and up and up.

    He specifically said Progressive Democrat Congresswomen. And went on to say he was sure that Nancy Pelosi would work out free travel for them because those specific Progressive Democrat Congresswomen had just been critical of Pelosi.

    Only the most obtuse person or someone ignorant of current events could even pretend to not know who he was talking about.

    They certainly self-identified quickly enough, lol.

    Believe it or not, there are plenty of people who don't hang on every word from Trump or Pelosi who really don't know what's going on. I run into them all the time and because I'm often wearing a MAGA hat, or now my Trump 2020 hat, I get questions on things that bubble-up to the headlines.

    That's exactly what he wanted.

    EVERYTHING IS RACE.

    And apparently brown is now a race.

    And he could accomplished the same thing by changing a few words, thus making the tweet accurate.

    If he would have said "you can leave" instead of "go back where you came from," the tweet accomplishes the same thing, but is accurate and easily defensible. The media would have still been outraged, they would have still called him a racist, and the four congresswomen would have still had a press conference. It is strategically superior to what Trump tweeted. You cannot acknowledge, even for a brief moment, that Trump did something that was not 100 percent infallible and perfect in every imaginable way.

    Those people are already voting for Trump. I'm not sure what point you think you're making here.

    See above.

    Well, that’s a pretty high bar. And since you’re talking about strategic errors and not spelling/grammar, I would say it’s up to interpretation. Maybe his strategy is to make never-Trumpers appear pedantic.

    No, it isn't.
    What makes you think you are smarter than the billionaire President with the hot supermodel wife?
    Does your media tell you that you are smart, because you believe them?

    What he's doing (or did), was paint the group of four as the representatives of the current dim party. He's equating the dims with the group of four. Painting the dim party as extremists because they won't call down AOC and her cohorts. The party of no borders, the party that won't work to fix problems, the party that supports antifa, the party that condemns ICE and CBP, the party that wants to do away with Homeland Security, the party of SOCIALISTS.

    At election time, the ads will be ready made. The comparison between MAGA and HAA (Hate America Again) will be stark, and it will be there because the dims did nothing to counter it.

    You won't have to wait long. I suspect it will be front and center at the rally tonight. Another thing to consider, AOC has the highest favorability rating of the four (24%) Ilhan is at 9%. Last time I checked, President Trump was at least double their best rating.

    The dims just can't get over the fact that he's a counter puncher. If you want to paint President Trump as a bully; you're going to have to let him hit first, and he doesn't do that. Suckers them in EVERY time.

    Please direct me to where Trump said that line you and all of the media keep putting in quotations. I cannot find it anywhere.

    Even if that line were there, go back to where you came from does not say leave the country. Go back to Crooklyn, Minnesota, Detroit, etc. Enough problems to be solved there.

    He made it clear he was talking about other countries when he said "who originally came from other countries"...he followed with...
    "Why don't they go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came. Then come back and show us how it's done."

    Which is a lot different than what continues to be posted as a direct quote when nobody can show me where he said "go back where you came from,"

    It's not just different in language but in meaning.

    I think maybe he was just suggesting that they join the Peace Corps. :rofl:

    Except he didn't say 'go back where you came from'. If you're going to pick apart his tweets for what they said at least quote them accurately.

    Whatever he said, let's offer them free tickets on Malaysian Airline to go overseas.

    To all those who say that only hard-core Trump supporters think Trump's tweets, although controversial, are a win for Trump, I give you Jake Tapper's take on this latest tweet storm. Jake is no Trump supporter:
