When I saw President Trump’s odd tweets over the weekend — the ones that told four American lawmakers to “go home” — my first thought was about Napoleon Bonaparte, who famously said, “Never interfere with an enemy while he’s in the process of destroying himself.”
That’s just what the Democrats had been doing for weeks. In their first presidential debate last month, all but a few of the 20 candidates running for the White House pledged to give illegal aliens free health care and said crossing the border illegally should be just like getting a parking ticket. Two 2020 hopefuls — Sen. Cory A. Booker and former Rep. Robert “Beto” O’Rourke — even traveled to the border to personally try to get foreigners into the United States.
And just last week, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez claimed House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was racist for “the explicit singling out of newly elected women of color” in her and three of her colleagues. That tiff exploded into a catfight, with Pelosi once again dismissing AOC and the other members of what’s now known as “The Squad” — Reps. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, Rashida Tlaib of Michigan and Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts.
So Trump leaping in with incendiary tweets certainly overshadowed the infighting in the Democratic Party and drew the focus away from their terrible policies. Crazy, right?
Yup. Crazy like a fox.
