You can't expect the commander-in-chief to know every detail about military history such as just when we started using airports. Although I do give him credit for not blaming the Democrats, who were not invited to his speech.

A four-fer tweet from the Stable Genius:
A big subject today at the White House Social Media Summit will be the tremendous dishonesty, bias, discrimination and suppression practiced by certain companies. We will not let them get away with it much longer. The Fake News Media will also be there, but for a limited period..

....The Fake News is not as important, or as powerful, as Social Media. They have lost tremendous credibility since that day in November, 2016, that I came down the escalator with the person who was to become your future First Lady. When I ultimately leave office in six......

...years, or maybe 10 or 14 (just kidding), they will quickly go out of business for lack of credibility, or approval, from the public. That’s why they will all be Endorsing me at some point, one way or the other. Could you imagine having Sleepy Joe Biden, or @AlfredENeuman99

...or a very nervous and skinny version of Pocahontas (1000/24th), as your President, rather than what you have now, so great looking and smart, a true Stable Genius! Sorry to say that even Social Media would be driven out of business along with, and finally, the Fake News Media!

I don't think that even the writers of the late night talk shows could have come up with a tweet like that.

This tweet is so bizarre I had to check that it’s not a parody. Hard to make heads or tails of it. I think 1000/24th is a typo for 1/1024th, which Trump claims is Senator Warren’s fraction of Indian ancestry. (It’s actually higher, but nowhere near enough for her to call herself a minority.) @AlfredENeuman99 could be a new joke name for Mayor Buttigieg, but it’s really just the Twitter handle of an ordinary guy from Chicago.

The tweet has been corrected to say 1/1024th and remove @AlfredENeuman99. So Alfred's 15 minutes of fame is over.

While Trump doesn't name the Congresswomen against whom he's railing, Ilhan Omar is from Somalia. However, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Rashida Tlaib are from the "foreign" countries of the Bronx and Detroit respectively.

No racists here though.

I've given Trump the benefit of the doubt for as long as I could, but telling Americans to go to their ancestral countries is flat-out bigotry. And saying how our government is to be run is the job of members of Congress (not right-wing bloggers or Fox News hosts).

His response to criticism of that tweet:
Donald J. Trump wrote:So sad to see the Democrats sticking up for people who speak so badly of our Country and who, in addition, hate Israel with a true and unbridled passion. Whenever confronted, they call their adversaries, including Nancy Pelosi, “RACIST.” Their disgusting language and the many terrible things they say about the United States must not be allowed to go unchallenged. If the Democrat Party wants to continue to condone such disgraceful behavior, then we look even more forward to seeing you at the ballot box in 2020!
Then on Monday, instead of backing down like the previous times he made un-American comments, he doubles down:
Donald J. Trump wrote:When will the Radical Left Congresswomen apologize to our Country, the people of Israel and even to the Office of the President, for the foul language they have used, and the terrible things they have said. So many people are angry at them & their horrible & disgusting actions! If Democrats want to unite around the foul language & racist hatred spewed from the mouths and actions of these very unpopular & unrepresentative Congresswomen, it will be interesting to see how it plays out. I can tell you that they have made Israel feel abandoned by the U.S.
He no longer feels the need to hide his racism.

Not all is lost. I do believe Omar, AOC, and Tlaib are doing a fine job representing your positions and values. You have several voices in Congress. You should be happy.

So don't worry guys...Rush will be giving you your talking points!

"We’re not mad at what he said. We’re mad about what the media is making of it.”

“He never mentioned race in those tweets.”

“Fake News.”

I'm pleased that my Republican Senator still has a pair of intact balls. (He also has three years left in his term.)
Pat Toomey wrote:President Trump was wrong to suggest that four left-wing congresswomen should go back to where they came from. Three of the four were born in America and the citizenship of all four is as valid as mine. I couldn’t disagree more with these congresswomen’s views on immigration, socialism, national security, and virtually every policy issue. But they are entitled to their opinions, however misguided they may be. We should defeat their ideas on the merits, not on the basis of their ancestry.
A few other GOP members of Congress have criticized Trump's tweet.

Now you want to focus on what he does? O.K. But you're not going to like it, because those that voted for him are very happy with what he has done.

Most of what I don't like about Trump, so far, is what he says, or at least how he says it. Take that away and he's golden. Most of those who voted for him feel the same way. Many that didn't, did't because of what he said (or how he said it). Trump has been his own worst enemy because of what he says (or Tweets). So this is a wonderful change, that one of the Democratic Party's talking points is "ignore what he says. Watch what he does."

Oh, and by what "he" does, don't give him credit for what Obama did (kids in cages, etc.)

He has instituted openly racist policies as the policy of the United States. He had to try three times until he was able to come up with enough of a fig leaf that the Republican caucus of the Supreme Court was willing to give him a pass, on the ground that they were willing to ignore the evidence (and factual findings) that his motives were racist. Four members of that caucus were willing to ignore similar factual findings with respect to the census. I believe Chief Justice Roberts was likewise willing to ignore those findings until the late discovery of the Republican strategist's papers proved a bridge too far for him.

What Donny did was hold out his supposed ability to grab women by the genitals as something to brag about. He thinks this quality is admirable. And his governance shows it.

And Donny's consistent disapproval ratings, not to mention the Democratic takeover of the House, make it clear that the majority of the American people don't support what he's trying to do. They didn't support it in 2016 either. Don't forget -- he lost the popular vote by approximately 3 million votes.

He's doing his level best to make sure that my son, and (when he has them) his kids, will have to deal with much more severe climate change effects.

Now he's trying to take away protections for pre-existing conditions by having the Justice Department reverse itself and argue that the entire Affordable Care Act is unconstitutional. Not only is the argument utterly specious (which might not stop Republican lower-court judges from accepting it), but it will devastate health insurance coverage for tens of millions of people when he said he'd protect people with pre-existing conditions. If he succeeds in his efforts through the courts, we'll see how that plays on Election Day. Although I think that's a question that your Member of the House can already answer just fine. And so can your former Member. --Bob
