Trump attacks the Squad
07.16.2019 - By UnPresidented: Creating change that empowers the Resistance
Today's episode is devoted to Trump's racist attacks on the Squad -- the four freshmen members of the House (Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Rashida Tlaib, Ilhan Omar and Ayanna Pressley) who have so freaked Trump out that he's been on a racist rant for days now. But also, there's some method to Trump's madness, as I argue in today's podcast: He's effectively changed the conversation from those horrible camps on our borders to his racism (which is a net-plus with the GOP) and the four liberal women (who a lot of Trump voters don't like). Cliff and I do a deep dive on this topic, including discussing the growing cold war between the Squad and Nancy Pelosi, and how it doesn't benefit any of us heading into 2020.
