I know that he’s supposedly some sort of idiot savant with his tweeting, but this seems extraordinarily stupid:
President Trump said Sunday that four minority, liberal congresswomen who have been critical of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) should “go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came,” prompting other Democrats — including Pelosi — to leap to their defense.
Of course, as all of us know, he’s full of shit on three of four birth locations:
Pressley was born in Cincinnati, Tlaib was born in Detroit and Ocasio-Cortez was born in New York — about 20 miles from where Trump was born. Omar was born in Mogadishu, Somalia; her family fled the country amid civil war when she was a child, and she became a U.S. citizen as a teenager.
I know that with Trump black is white and up is down, but it does seem like a pretty bedrock principle of politics that when your opponent is shooting themselves in the foot, you should shut your fucking mouth and let them pull the trigger.
