President Trump: Good Morning, America!

This morning, President Trump tweeted his favorite political slogan, and followed it seven minutes later with an inflammatory tweet targeting the same four Democratic congresswomen he’s been publicly scuffling with since last week:

I’ve lost track if he’s triple-tripling down now or what, but obviously he has no intention of letting up. In Trump’s playbook, an incumbent President can never begin a re-election campaign too early. And if an opportunity presents itself and your base is on board, then jump on it.

Polling this week, done after the “send her back” rally, after his head-spinning disapproval/approval of those “incredible patriots” and after this morning’s tweet should be telling about whether his tactics are working.

I’m not going to opine on the second tweet other than to say, the man knows how to tap into his base. Please tell us what you think about the second tweet in the comments section: Smart political move? Effective strategery in action? Dunderhead move? A con man works his easy marks? Grifters gonna grift? Opportunist at work? Giving voice to what a lot of Americans think? All of the above?

  1. The second tweet was right on the money IMHO, because those four congresscritters are utterly malignant. At least some of them are admitted socialists, which is reason enough to denigrate them, though in their cases far from the only reason.

    As for whether the tweet is a smart move or not, I have no idea at this juncture. Time will tell.

  2. I’m with Arizona on this one, that tweet ain’t wrong, pretty much nailed it.
