Did Trump really take a political risk in
telling Omar to go back to her country?

So did Trump blow it by implicitly telling Rep. Ilhan Omar to go back to her home country, fix it up, and get back to us? Did he overplay his hand? Is a remark like that, universally decried by Democrats, a step too far? Not by Trump's standards. The controversial string of tweets, which stirred the pot mightily in the press, was as politically incorrect as it comes. In fact, Trump hasn't put out a string like this since the 2016 campaign. The tweets were at least in part about the 2020 campaign. They were also about weakening House speaker Nancy Pelosi,


I absolutely freakin' LOVE my President and the way he thinks!!

For a guy who isn't a politician, Trump sure knows how to crack heads...politically speaking.

Nancy was trying to make the Squad go away. Trump just put them in sharp focus with all their baggage, as pointed out by Nancy, and also highlighted Nancy's difficulty in dealing with them. It was a beautifully effective move. What is Nancy going to do? Defend them after she just shot them down? If Nancy reacts to Trump, she weakens her own position and continues to draw attention to things that Nancy just wants to go away. Trump is keeping it from going away in a manner utilizing Nancy and in a way that it is impossible for her to respond to. The media is in the same fix. Anything they do to respond makes Nancy and the dems look bad and keeps an ugly issue for the dems in focus. But many in the media won't be able to help themselves and will whine all over Trump, to their own detriment. Trump OWNS these people. Stable genius indeed.

Omar is not the only brown congresswoman from a foreign country. Jayapal of Washington state was born in India and raised in East Asia. She also carries a haughty contempt for a country that her forefathers and mothers had no hand in building and yet she is as shrewish as Omar, Tlaib and O-C (although much uglier even than Tlaib...sorry, but she really is comically homely) in telling us how to run it. I applaud my new Favorite President, Donald John Trump, for verbally kicking Dem ashes because I and others like me will never get to. If he went in the ring and pummeled these toads as well as Schumer, Nadler, Swalwell, DeBlasio, Pelosi, Biden and a host of other traitors it wouldn’t be too gauche for me. I would be glad for it. Millions of us love you, Mr. President!

It's about time someone told this rag wrapped muslim pig to get out of America. Thanks, President Trump. You speak for all of us. How sickening watching these squad women insult you and the United States and get the fawning love of our commie media as a reward for their revolting behavior. Omar... the loving muslim who married her brother can't complete a thought that isn't anathema and presents herself as someone we would all like to see gone for good...what's to say except where can I contribute to the purchase of her one way ticket home to of the garden spots on the earth.

I don't think it was exactly that. I think what he meant was the order that he signed that said BEFORE she came to the USA her family would have to be denied asylum in the refugee (concentration) camp in Kenya that they came here from. She's now a US citizen and can't be sent back without ridiculously (treasonous) reasons. He's saying she should know how to do that American thing. If you start sounding STUPID, pipe down.

How many times have we heard that Trump has gone too far? Hispanic Judge in Trump U. case? Charlottesville? Spit-hole countries (which he denies)? Thank goodness we have a President who resists these knee-jerk attempts to bring him down. Would any other Republican have stood up to the pressure to kill the Kavanaugh nomination? And isn't Rep. Omar the one who they say married her brother? He is right to point out that she fled a country (Somalia) that was and is a disaster. She should be grateful every day that she lives in a country that has legitimate elections and allows people to hold office regardless of gender or religion. Trump is right. Her country of origin is the one that needs fixing, not the US.

It’s funny that the leftists and liberal Democrats can fraudulently call President Trump any name in the book 24/7 referring to Trump’s physical appearance, including his hair, hands, and the hue of his skin with those Democrat personal insults not considered to be racist, but anytime Trump replies and criticizes the Democrats in anyway, the Democrats claim that what Trump said is “racist”. In fact the Democrats call anyone who criticizes them a “racist” these days as that's all the Democrats have in their political playbook. Telling someone of apparent or actual foreign origin who have shown through their words and deeds that they hate America, because of the way the country is now constituted, and governed, that they can just go back to their home country that they fled to come to the USA in the first place, if they believe that America is so bad, may certainly not be considered to be politically correct speech by some “snowflakes” today, but is not being racist. As race and nation state citizenship or residency are two different things completely. Chances are that in the 2020 election the leftist and liberal Democrats are going to find out to their grief that most Americans who will actually vote in that election agree with Trump on that issue.

I think Omar just lost her re-election with this stunt! Watching her speak like a Hooker looking for a guy to pay was stunning. MN must be proud. Yes, there are a lot of Somolia voters there, but I would bet there are way more white Svensons and Johnsons there who may have voted democrat last election, but I wouldn't be surprised at all if those folks are so ashamed of Omar that they will vote her out even if it means they have to vote Republican to do it! Do you think those Four will be in Nancy's office at 8 am tomorrow morning getting a lesson in How not to upstage the Speaker of the House! She has to be furious. I wonder how much more she will put up with before yanking them off committees and making them lick envelopes for 8 hours a day until they figure out just who is Boss there!

Families going out with their dogs, which are carefully groomed, looking extremely healthy and happy. The pet is a real member of the family. His needs are as important to his owners as their own. Because of this close relationship, dogs have developed the ability to perfectly understand us.

Most racist, woman-hating, immigrant-fearing party ever, amirite? The not-so-inside talk has been whether Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's four-woman war against Nancy Pelosi would earn her a Democratic primary challenger next year, but her high-profile antics have drawn another Republican into the race to represent heavily Democratic NY14. Fox News reports that Scherie Murray, a 38-year-old New York businesswoman and Jamaica native (she emigrated as a child), has launched a campaign to unseat AOC next year.

Case in point, former Vice President Joe Biden, in earnest, just said he would challenge President Trump to a push-up contest as a way to measure his own manliness. The outburst came with great assist from MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski after she asked Biden in an interview how he would “fight” Trump, given that he “lies,” “bullies,” and “doesn’t play fair.”

Many of the Beto O’Rourke faithful in Texas, people who supported him during his 2018 Senate race, have now reached the same conclusion: Beto should drop out of the presidential race. In a Quinnipiac poll from early June, 60 percent of Texas Democrats said they preferred that O’Rourke suspend his presidential campaign and run against Senator John Cornyn instead. Just 27 percent said they’d rather he continue his presidential bid. Since then, his national poll numbers have dropped significantly—one recent poll of New Hampshire voters found that O’Rourke had 0.0 percent support in the state.
