Skip to comments.The Squad to Re-Elect President Trump
Posted on 07/18/2019 6:19:09 AM PDT by Kaslin
One of the greatest parts of the great American classic, The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, was when young Tom tricked all of the neighborhood kids into painting a fence for him. Punished by Aunt Polly for one his many indiscretions, Tom promptly lures and entices his classmates into doing his job for him by making it appear to be an enjoyable, once in a blue moon opportunity, all the while sitting back and reaping the rewards of his manipulations. The other kids even pay him for the opportunity. It appears as if Donald Trump has stolen a page from the Mark Twain classic by turning “The Squad” of Congresswomen Cortez, Tlaib, Pressley, and Omar into the Squad to Re-elect the President.
The past several weeks has seen a civil war break out amongst the leading Democrats in Washington. From Pelosi’s dismissals of the Squad such as, “that’s like five people” and “They’re four people, and that’s how many votes they got” to AOC’s racially charged rebuke of the Speaker, “it got to a point where it was just outright disrespectful … the explicit singling out of newly elected women of color.”, the war between the left’s establishment and the extreme left’s Squad is raging.
President Trump seems to have taken both notice and full advantage of this opportunity. On Sunday Trump took to Twitter essentially telling the Squad to go back where they came from. Trump’s aggressively hyped but essentially benign tweet has led to many reactions, but one result stands out. He has essentially turned the Squad into his own re-election campaign committee.
Following President Trump’s Twitter storm, the left has rallied around the Squad and given Trump an undeniable asset for 2020. He swayed the tide of the Democrat civil war in favor of the Squad and away from the establishment. Speaker Pelosi, pre-tweet, had been desperately trying to rein in the extremists and stave off nonsensical calls for impeachment. Tuesday, Pelosi had to take to the House floor to align herself with the Squad and in the process drew a rebuke from the House Parliamentarian. Texas Rep. Al Green used the opportunity to continue his pointless push for impeachment. The establishment certainly rallied around the Squad and in the process gave them even more visibility, more sway, and inexorably linked the Squad to the face of the Democrats. This is of immense value to a Republican seeking re-election next year.
The Squad is known for such gems as Rep. Pressley’s statement over the weekend, “We don't need any more brown faces that don't want to be a brown voice.” Racism and group think, two hallmarks of totalitarian regimes, in one statement. Then there’s AOC’s Chief of Staff’s now infamous likening of centrist Democrats to segregationists. And of course, there’s Ilhan Omar’s repeated anti-semitic statements questioning Jewish money and the loyalty of Americans who support Israel. This is who Pelosi and the establishment Democrats have rallied around and it is going to cost them.
Over the weekend, buried by the mainstream media’s obsessive coverage of President Trump’s tweets, Axios reported a very disturbing poll being circulated among top Democrats in Washington. It appears that the two most visible members of the Squad, AOC and Omar are both drawing very high name recognition while simultaneously earning exceptionally low favorability ratings, 22 percent and 9 percent respectively. If the past eight presidential elections are any indication, 2020 is going to be decided by roughly ten percent of voters. It’s not a good situation for whomever ends up being the Democrat nominee when the face of the party is more unpopular than the Yankees in Boston.
Donald Trump, by injecting himself into the Democrat’s civil war and compelling the Pelosi establishment to embrace the Squad, may have just pulled off a classic Tom Sawyer move. Rather than allowing the Democrats to reign in their extreme left flank and quell the temper-tantrum-like calls for impeachment, he has gotten the left to embrace their darker demons and make the Squad the face of the party. In doing so, he has made four freshman Congresswomen the Squad to Re-elect the President. He has enticed them into painting the fence for him. When playing chess, it is always helpful when your opponent has a checkers strategy.
America will never buy your act.
They are ensuring that President Trump will be re elected with a majority in both houses.
That ain't good, having a Yankees bumper sticker in Boston is more dangerous that wearing a MAGA hat at a ATIFA rally.
The “Jihad Squad” is very catchy. These gals hate America and it’s obvious to just about everyone in America, except Gayle King.
Read.... Art of the Deal....
These people have no clue how Trump has them pegged...his ability to meet people and have them figured out is amazing..
He has forty years fighting Democrats in NYC to get his projects approved..
I found it notable that during the first discussion of the presidents tweet that political analyst, Dana Perino, that Bush enabling never Trumper, said twice the republicans will take back the house
The Diddly-Squat Squad
Second Rule of Holes: If your opponents are digging themselves into a hole, hand them a shovel.
Personally, I like calling them the Odd Squad...
IN the last line this writer says the same thing I have since right after Trump announced he is running...
Trump is playing 3D Chess while everyone else is learning to play checkers.
Anyway the gist of the article is correct I think, he has made these 4 twits the face of the Democratic party, and basically his re-election committee.
And the Democrats not only fell for it, they JUMPED onto their own ship while he sank it...
Brilliant...this guy has political instincts like nobody I ever saw.
These people have no clue how Trump has them pegged...his ability to meet people and have them figured out is amazing.
His ability to trigger and manipulate the Left is already becoming legendary. They play into his hand every time.
In general, lefties are very emotion driven people who, like children, are always demanding things without any consideration as to practicality, costs or consequences. They just want what they want because it makes them feel good. And they are quick to lash out at anyone perceived to be an obstacle or who acts to moderate their impulses.
Trump thoroughly understands and exploits this weakness. He uses their emotional predictability and impulsiveness against them in an artful form of political jujitsu. Its a beautiful thing to watch.

Each day, when he does as you noted above, he adds a smile to our faces and makes us want to support him even more as our President!
The graphic skills of people on our side, make it easy to pick out good ones.
It looks like they are the suicide squad... for dimocrats.
...but I prefer to call them "the Squid"

Well, staying with the premise that you just MIGHT weewee someone off, as a former Sailor, I take umbridge at your definition of ‘squid’
As I will tell Marines that address me as ‘Squid’ the correct response is
Squid is an intelligent form of MARINE life.
Squid - Wikipedia
Squid are rapid swimmers, moving by jet propulsion, and largely locate their prey by sight. They are among the most intelligent of invertebrates, with groups of Humboldt squid having been observed hunting cooperatively. They are preyed on by sharks, other fish, sea birds, seals and cetaceans, particularly sperm whales.
