Trump tweetstorm aftermath


1. Trump tweets words that many interpret as racist.

2. The "Squad [of Four]" (Omar, Ocasio-Cortez, Tlaib, Pressley) makes a loud, angry statement in Congress in response to Trump.

3. This plays into Trump's hands.

4. House Democrats publicly and formally rebuke Trump.

5. A "floor fight" erupts in the House when Nancy Pelosi offers support for the Squad.

Meanwhile, Tim Pool, who deplored Trump's tweets as crass (and they are crass), nevertheless sees things more or less the way Styx does, and even ascribes to Trump a mastery of "second-level 4-D chess," i.e., a deep knowledge of strategy to further his agenda:

Jon Miller notes the Squad's refusal to denounce terrorism:

Styx, in reference to Pelosi and the House "floor fight": "Democrats are so confused they even had trouble voting along party lines to condemn Trump":

I'm not sure whether this is sad or hilarious.
