Everyone Hates Trump’s Incredibly Bad “Go Back” Tweet

Top trending on Twitter: #RacistInChief #RacistTrump #TrustIsARacist. Much of the time, this is brought on by a bout of Trump Derangement Syndrome. This time, the president brought it on himself.

Top trending on Twitter: #RacistInChief #RacistTrump #TrustIsARacist. Much of the time, this is brought on by a bout of Trump Derangement Syndrome. This time, the president brought it on himself.

It was an incredibly bad, stupid, awful series of tweets.

Just when the president should be keeping quiet and let the Democrats play parlor games like Ourobouros and “¿quien es mas socialista?” he does something dumb like this because he has this compulsion to be in the center of the discussion.

Now we have NBC News throwing raw tofu to its viewers. “Trump says progressive congresswomen should ‘go back’ and fix the places they ‘originally came from’

CNN gets to fawn and drool even more over Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

And the rest of us get to scratch our heads.

And Trumpists circle their wagons around–not much to protect here.

David French is as perplexed as the rest of us.

Telling people to “go back” to their country is about the worst look any politician can have in America. It brings to my mind things like Jew haters telling Israeli Jews to “go back to Europe.” In fact, the Anti-Defamation League has “go back to the oven” as one of its recurrent anti-Semitic themes.

I don’t believe President Trump is an anti-Semite. I don’t believe he’s particularly racist, person to person. But wow, you wouldn’t know it from his public tweets, because Trump doesn’t say it about Ireland or England, or Switzerland.

This kind of stuff issuing from Trump’s thoughtless compulsions directly to Twitter is nothing but a gift to Democrats. There’s no 4D chess here, just a heaping helping of awful.
