Mod Squad

Erin Scott - Reuters
Trump went after the "squad" again, his four horsewoman of the apocalypse. The ones he wants to go back where they came from.

He said the freshman congresswomen needed to apologize to America and Israel. Said they hated our country.

"I don’t believe the four Congresswomen are capable of loving our Country. They should apologize to America (and Israel) for the horrible (hateful) things they have said. They are destroying the Democrat Party, but are weak & insecure people who can never destroy our great Nation!" Donald Trump

Now I can not personally stand the policy positions of three of the four, AOC, Tlaib and Omar.

Ayanna Pressley seems pretty good, I don't think the voting age should be dropped down to sixteen personally but we have a little generational war going on in this country right now. Wild in the streets.

These newcomers have an out sized, almost giddy view about the limits of their own power and it would behoove them to listen to their elders and chill for a while until they get the hang of the place. Don't lead with your horns, or elbows, like the President does. After all, its what you learn after you know it all that counts.

But as much as I agree or disagree with their policies, or three of the four anyway, do I think they hate their country? No way. Do they need to apologize to it? No. Do they need to apologize to Israel? Are you kidding? Since when did that become a litmus test on U.S. citizenship? Total cheap pandering and political opportunism on the part of President Trump.

These four squad members are being made to be the face of the Dem party... by FOX News and Trump. They make a good foil for Trump However, the represent less than 1% of the House members and less than 2% of the Dems in the house. Somehow, the majority of the Dem house members need to step in to the spotlight and highlight more moderate policies, policies that will appeal to the majority of the country.

They are in the new vernacular - strawpersons. I agree with you,they make a good cartooney target. But they definitely have their progressive fan base and they scare me a little. They need to stfu and listen to Pelosi.
