Trump Under Fire: Reverts to Jingoistic Tropes to Rally Base

"The only thing I'm sure about today is coffee. Everything else is just speculation." - Nancy Hoffman

Good Day World!

It hasn't been a good week for Trump, and he's becoming increasingly desperate to change that.

So he held a campaign rally last night to stroke his ego. He even came up with a new chant... "Send her back!" (Referring to Rep. Iland Omar)

After having a tweet he made against four congresswomen formerly condemned for "being racist" by Congress, Trump pivoted to jingoistic jargon to defend himself by questioning the congresswomen's patriotism and suggesting "...they all go back home."

It's been more than 100 years since Congress issued a formal rebuke of a sitting president. Unfortunately, it was non-binding and there's really no penalty to pay. I doubt if Trump is even embarrassed by the fact.

However, even if it was just symbolic it doesn't mean it was meaningless. Symbols do matter. After the smoke clears this will be a moment in history - one that will merit a line or two, when all the books on Trump have been written.

It sure didn't help Trump's temper when the Supreme Court kicked his, and Ross's corrupt attempt at adding a question to the census, out with the admonition that it was a "contrived."

Yesterday, Congress voted to hold AG Barr and Secretary Ross in Criminal Contempt over the census dispute.

Again, very little will come from this hand slap, even though it is a criminal complaint. The DOJ isn't going to do shit to their boss, or his buddy. Another abnormality in the Trump regime, where justice is perverted at every turn.

History will remember Trump's minions in crime. Enablers from AG Barr, to Mitch McConnell, will be harshly judged with Trump for their attempt to destroy our Democratic Republic and replace it with a dictatorship.

Time for me to walk on down the road...
