As I was tough on President Trump's attacks on Democratic freshmen, and since media outrage was deafening, and since all the Democrats (and four Republicans) voted for a resolution condemning his tweets, I will start giving the floor to the supporters of President.
Home minority leader Kevin McCarthy said yesterday he did not believe Trump's attacks were racist. "I think it's an ideology. "It's all about politics," he said.
Newt Gingrich said that Trump believes that "the more he can make the country look at the so-called squad, the more he can make them realize how radical they are and how fundamentally anti-American their views are, in the long run, it's better. "
Maryland Congressman GOP Andy Harris said the tweets" are obviously not racist, "but" when someone does not agree with anyone now, by default you call them a racist and that's what
He said Trump "could have returned to the area they came from or from the neighborhood they came from, although the president specifically talked about Ilham Omar and Somalia. "
Fox News Jesse Waters said while his mother looked at the tweets as racist:" Mummy will not scare me, they were not racist. It's about patriotism When do I love or leave it? We become racist Do not just leave it, hey, come back and help us solve our problems. "
And the president himself wrote yesterday that" I have no racist bone in the body you are! ", Adding:" Democratic congressmen have been the discarding of some of the worst, hateful and disgusting things ever said by a politician in the Chamber or the Senate, yet they get a free pass and a big embrace from the Democratic Party. … Why does not Parliament vote to expose the dirty and hateful things they said? "

The party now wants ̵
In this regard, it is not a matter of Trump saying that women should return where they came from before returning, it is about the left-wing extremism of AOC, Omar, Ayana Pressley and Rashida Tileb. This is, I think, Trump's strategy all the time to create enough storm that they become the face of the Democratic Party and its own initial attacks become more important than that.
This is what Lindsey Graham has made in a slight assumption that his friend in golf "strives higher" by breaking down the freshman: "We all know that the AOC and this crowd are a bunch of Communists. , They hate Israel, they hate our own country. "
(His former colleague from Dom Joe Scarborough accused him of McCarthy.)
Meanwhile, a handful of Republicans spoke against the President's attacks on the four women. "Myth Romney:" Destructive, humiliating and destructive. "Lisa Murkovski:" There is no excuse for the President's vile comments – they were absolutely unacceptable and that should stop. "Tim Scott, the only black Republican in the Senate, for "unacceptable personal attacks and racially accused language."
And here there are big challenges for the media. I told yesterday at the Newsroom of America that the news should be cautious to mark Trump's attacks as racist, as if it were an indisputable fact. CNN, CBS, ABC and, after an internal debate, Washington Post are among those who have done it in the right news and segments.
My opinion is that readers and viewers are smart, especially when the president uses a language that is very close. It reflects the historical "return to Africa" of mockery against blacks. Do not act as an opposition party.
A bigger question is whether the media are playing in the hands of the president. The New York Times editor accused Tramp in a distraction policy:
"His comments caused the media coverage and the public discontent that he enjoyed. So he did what he usually does: one more step … Tramp's pursuit of triggering an endless cultural war puts his political critics into ties. They can capture his bait and repulse by participating in the distractional distraction he has created to stimulate his supporters, or they can ignore his outbursts and risk to normalize his terrible behavior.

The fact is that a president can command the media at any time he wants, and that's true in pre-Twitter age . And when a president makes accusations of splitting on such a scale, and the other side explodes out of indignation, a very big story that can not be minimized or neglected. political reasons. It also never works.
