More polling confirms that Donald Trump won the Democrats’ presidential debate. His job approval number has gone up since then and now even the ABC News poll shows he’d beat a leftwing Democrat by six points.
Behind closed doors yesterday, Nancy Pelosi admonished Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to stop going after moderate Democrats publicly because they need them to hold on to power. AOC then came out publicly to accuse Pelosi of racism saying Pelosi was “outright disrespectful” and “singling out … newly elected women of color.”
If that wasn’t enough, Ilhan Omar got a profile in the Washington Post where she revealed her outright contempt for the country that took her in as a refugee. The Washington Post all but called her a liar for her fabrication of details in a story she told to high school students.
Then there is Beto O’Rourke droning on to immigrants that the United States was founded on white supremacy and it is still woven into the fabric of the country.
Just how many people do these clowns intend to drive to Trump?
But it gets even better. To much fanfare, Democrats rolled out Amy McGrath in Kentucky as their challenger to Mitch McConnell. She got fawning coverage from NBC. She raised over $2 million in 24 hours. Then she said she would have voted for Brett Kavanaugh.
You could hear progressive brakes screeching across the country. McGrath, just last year while running for Congress, made her opposition to Kavanaugh a big piece of her closing pitch. Then, yesterday, she flipped on that causing lots of screaming. Then she reversed herself again by sun down.
It was all very embarrassing and hilarious.
The GOP is going to have bad weeks too, undoubtedly. But this was a particularly bad one for Democrats. Making it worse, their feedback loop is becoming decidedly anti-America, which is not a winning message for 2020.
If the Democrats blow 2020, watching them turn on AOC quickly and viciously will be a spectacle not seen since Robespierre was dragged out to the scaffolding.
