The Democrats were divided. They were at each other’s throats. The progressives were accusing Nancy Pelosi of racism. Donald Trump was trolling them all by defending Pelosi. The disharmony and disunity was growing. The House Democrats’ Twitter feed began an attack on Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s Chief of Staff. Progressives pushed back.
It was glorious.
And then that tweet. With the exception of Ilhan Omar, those members of Congress are from the United States. They are American citizens. They have nowhere to go back to because this is their home.
And now there’s unity on the left again. All the people tearing each other apart and bickering and starting to divide are put back together for now, united again against the President.
The tweeting fingers that tweeted from the President’s personal twitter account did their owner nor anyone else except the Democrats any favors.
There’s no reason to intervene when the opposition is fighting itself. But like control rods injected into a situation to keep it from melting down, the President placed his fingers down on the keyboard and ended the Democrats’ fight with themselves and will now have his own side on defense.
It could have cascaded. It won’t now.
