There’s a particular tiny herd animal about which, if two of the cute little critters aren’t not getting along upon first meeting, standing them in just a tiny bit of harmless water — the conventional wisdom goes — will cause them unite. When faced with adversity, the foes will bond in order to form a stronger defense.

The same can happen, it may be assumed, with Democrats.

Recently, we’ve seen striking infighting across the aisle — Mama Bird Nancy stuck it to Baby Bird AOC, and a bunch of feathers flew.

During the melee, as RedState’s Bonchie put it, The Donald “[stripped] naked and [ran] onto the battlefield.”

Rather than let them continue to destroy themselves, Trump interrupted with his own pecking, turning their attention — and the audience’s — toward him.

A number of Republicans gave him an A for…well, just pick your A word for “not good.”

But could it have been smarter than perceived?

Some think so — perhaps he was making a genius move to make the Dems define themselves by the most extreme among them:

Interesting idea.

Consider Rush Limbaugh’s Monday statements on the matter:

“I think Trump sees this rift developing between Pelosi and the Democrat leadership and these new communists on the left led by Cortez, and I think he wants them back together again. I think Trump wants the Democrat Party to become known as the Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Green New Deal socialism party. I think he wants to hang that label around all of them, and for that to happen they have to be unified.”

So the President galvanizes toward the goofy a party intent upon taking him out in 2020. And at a time, no less, when a poll indicates that swing voters are down on the socialist squad of new left-wing representatives.

It’s an eyebrow-raiser.

Is it accurate?
