The Squad becomes the Democrat's A-Team
21 minutes long
To spare those the agony of listening to political bafflegab, in have bravely volunteered myself to listen for you. The uncompressed version of the conversations are in the video.
Political bias: I don't hide it.
1. Go Tulsi!
2. AOC is a scheming fraud put forward via generous donor(s). Her gain is fame and fortune. The donors' gain is, coincidentally fortune--although in the current political environment fame might become a drag, e.g., J. Epstein.
3. The rest of the squad are self-aggrandizing opportunists. Omar's finances are starting to smell, like AOC's manager (which was really hers in part too). I haven't researched Tlaib but her "mofo" taunt of Trump months ago showed me what a refined human she is.
Pressley--blah, blah, blah,....We're the Squad--and don't mess with us
Omar--blah, blah, blah,....Racism...Xenophobia...crimes....
AOC--blah, blah, blah,...touching reminiscence of moment with her dad...core values
Tlaib--blah, blah, blah,....Trump racist...we're good.....
Trump was intemperate. I usually forgo the disdain for his verbalisms as just a "rough edge", as such. But this attack is and always will be terrible. It is what is often called an unforced error. What was he thinking? His barrage against the Squad has no tactical nor strategic value. Tactically, should belittlement of four individuals cannot help avoid conflation with race and ethnicity could serve as a change of focus, generated by Trump personally? Irrational. Strategically, he has given the Dems potentially endless ammunition against Trump as racist and xenophobic. What a stupid move.
Just when I thought El Trumpo might be a political genius, even though his policies are crass and often heartless, he proves to make such an idiotic move. The Dems won't care--they already hate Trump. Repugs might care, at least those of a moderate persuasion. But the Independents will care. Even discounting the persisting patina of Social Justice Warriorism, this will turn off many Indies who might be otherwise considering Trump as a choice.
The long term result of this will barely persist 6 weeks, if at all that long. Lots of heat, smoke, fuming, and perhaps rioting. If this does die down then Donny made only shot off his 5th toe and no long-term ill effects.
The Squad, of which I am not a fan, sounded really restrained, even if their rhetoric was often boilerplate-indignant. So, I do these self-promoters kudos for plausible political performances.
