    President Trump's tweets calling on four Democratic congresswomen to go back to their "original" countries, instead of criticizing the United States, were un-American.

    Those who agreed:

    Overall: 59%
    Democrat: 88%
    Republican: 25%
    Independent: 54%


    A clear majority of Americans say President Trump's tweets targeting four minority congresswomen were "un-American," according to a new USA TODAY/Ipsos Poll. But most Republicans say they agreed with his comments, an illustration of the nation's sharp partisan divide on issues of patriotism and race.

    More than two-thirds of those aware of the controversy, 68%, called Trump's tweets offensive. Among Republicans alone, however, 57% said they agreed with tweets that told the congresswomen to go back to their "original" countries, and a third "strongly" agreed with them. All four lawmakers are American citizens; three were born in the United States.


    That finding may help explain the reluctance of GOP leaders and most GOP members of Congress to castigate the president for tweets and comments in recent days targeting the congresswomen, outspoken progressives who are among his sharpest critics on Capitol Hill. Only four Republicans joined House Democrats Tuesday in passing a resolution condemning Trump's comments as "racist."


    What we know: Trump triples down on his controversial tweets about 'The Squad.'


    Partisan rebuke: House votes to condemn Trump's tweets with support from only 4 Republicans


    That said, the dispute could be costly for Trump among some key voters in his bid for a second term. Three-fourths of the women polled called his tweets offensive. Independents by more than 2-1 said they were "un-American."


    Overall, 59% called the president's tweets "un-American."

    One more time. The GOP is doubling down on traditional white male authoritarianism. With a crude and crooked Donald Trump leading the charge.

    https://www.businessinsider.com/chan...-house-2018-12

    While 52% of the 67 incoming House Democratic freshmen are female, only two, or 4.5% of the 44 incoming Republican freshmen are women — West Virginia's Carol Miller and Arizona's Debbie Lesko. Lesko won a special election earlier this year to replace Rep. Trent Franks, who resigned in the wake of a sexual misconduct scandal.

    Republicans saw their roster of female House representatives gutted 43% from 23 members to 13, as many Republican women either stepped down to run for higher office — like Marsha Blackburn in Tennessee and Kristi Noem in South Dakota — or were unseated by Democratic challengers.

    I'd argue that Bubbles also has a sense of humor. If he'd stick to exercising it... he'd be a welcome asset around here. Instead - he comments in unproductive fashion, about topics he knows little or nothing about, in ways that only showcase his intransigent ignorance.

    Be careful if you're using "Bubbles" as a nickname. I gave him one about 2 years ago, he took offense and pushed the button on me. Enjoyed a nice vaca though but, won't do it again. Hence, from experience, he has NO sense of humor.

    Whatever you say but, why should anyone but you push the button because of the nickname I gave you? Perhaps you could explain that bobbys.

    He keeps calling me bubbles and he is here, I think you are mixed up why you were booted. Is the revenge to post after me every time I post?

    Nope, I'm not. Your nickname was used in Scott's shot over my bow. The source mentioned was pretty obvious where it originated. So, I repeat, whatever bobbys. The evidence appears to bed pretty plain.

    Quite predictable here as to what gets into the lefts heads, having those four congresswomen, aka "the squad" as the face of the dem. party is exactly what Trump set out to do, accomplished, with Pelosi's help, brilliant political move, see ya in 2020.

    Brilliant political move, he just alienated most women in the country, put the GOP in the position of defending racist statements further defining the GOP as the party of white nationalists. Look what happened to the number of women Republican legislators in 2018, dropped in half with the largest gain for women and minorities in Congress coming in on the Democratic side. See you in 2020.

    Hardly, he hoped to fracture the party on what he thought were cracks. Remember, the Donald treats his own advisors this way, they compete with each other for favour rather than working as a team. He thinks he can weaken the dems by causing chaos, instead he actually strengthened them into a more cohesive team. Everyone rallied behind "the squad" including Pelosi whom he thought would try to cast them adrift.

    Now he has doubled and tripled down, showing the whole world exactly how racist he really is.

    Yep, being the party of only old white rural evangelical southern men sounds like a great way to ensure the future success of the Republican party. See ya in 2020, and 2024, and 2040 . . . .

    Hmm . . Do you think there will be a Republican party in 2040? Any bets?

    Lame spin. Look at the 2018 election. Republicans lost half the women they had in the House in the 115th Congress. The Republican wing represents white men more than ever.

    On a tangent, I just found out that Rep. Ilhan Omar—



    has been a US citizen longer than Melania Trump—



    Seems like that ought to count in the process of sending people back to where they came from.

    I agree with Trump's minions that comparing Trump to Mussolini is unfair. Unlike Trump, Mussolini authentically wrestled with the contradictions of capitalism, nationhood, and justice. Wrote a book. All that.

    Comparing Trump to Mussolini insults Mussolini.

    Do you even know the difference between socialism, Communism, Democratic Republic, Constitutional Monarchy, Bull Moose Party, Colonialism, Democracy, Democratic socialism, Federalism, Kleptocracy, Military Dictatorship, Oligarchy, Plutocracy, Totalitarianism, or any other form of government? I sincerely doubt you do since you obviously don't know what you are talking about in the 16 post you have so far.

    Oh and #floridaman

    FWIW AOC and Sanders are talking about a form of Democratic Socialism it's the kinda system of government that seems to be working REALLY REALLY well in the Nordic Countries - NOT the type of government in Venezuela, cause I KNOW you were gonna go there.

    Look it up grab a book and read a little - turn off Fox News and live a little
