Trump’s comments may be blunt, but they’re not “racist,” an accusation now thrown about by the Democrats as casually as saying hello. That, in fact, is the cold, hard strategy.
As Clay noted in his comments about Ocasio-Cortez accusing Pelosi of racism: “You’re getting push back so you resort to using the race card? Unbelievable.”
Unfortunately, it’s all too believable when smearing your opponents is the only card you have.
Still, after years of lies about his character and intention, USA Today reported the president’s approval rating among Republicans is now at 93 percent and the GOP’s approval rating among Americans is at 51 percent.
Trump is shoring up his base while at the same time turning Democrats against one another.
I’m not getting cocky, but this tumultuous week has nevertheless been a good week.
