A recent poll revealed an increase in Donald Trump’s approval rating.
Subsequently, being the gentleman he is, the President jotted a quick Thank You note Wednesday.
And it went a little somethin’ like this:
“New Poll: The Rasmussen Poll, one of the most accurate in predicting the 2016 election, has just announced that ‘Trump’ numbers have recently gone up by four points, to 50%. Thank you to the vicious young Socialist Congresswomen.”
He signed it thusly:
“America will never buy your act. #MAGA2020.”

This, of course, was just the latest entry in a battle between Trump and the Fab Four: Rashida Tlaib, Ilhan Omar, Ayanna Pressley, and professional cowfart fighter Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, which began with a skirmish between the freshman crew and old-timer Nancy Pelosi. Nance socked it to the newbies and doubled down — ’cause “regrets is something [she doesn’t] do” (here).
As I covered on the 12th, Trump jumped in the ring in the midst of that one:
“I deal with Nancy Pelosi a lot and we go back and forth and it’s fine, but I think that a group of people is being very disrespectful to her.
“[Alexandria] should treat Nancy Pelosi with respect. She should not be doing what she’s doing.”
“[I]’ll tell you something about Nancy Pelosi that you know better than I do: She is not a racist, okay? She is not a racist. For them to call her a racist is a disgrace.”
It grew in intensity from there, with The Donald eventually tellin’ ’em to go back from whence they came — and some believe his rake was a genius move (here).
Whatever the case, the move wasn’t done.
Hence, “vicious young socialist congresswomen.”
His “go home” antics resulted in a passed House resolution condemning remarks deemed as “racist”…by the very damsel he was swooping in to save:
“These comments from the White House are disgraceful and disgusting and the comments are racist. Every single member of this institution, Democratic and Republican, should join us in condemning the president’s racist tweets. To do anything less would be a shocking rejection of our values and a shameful abdication of our oath of office to protect the American people.”
But does Trump care? Something tells me that’s a big fat No. The resolution is pomp. And he’s pompous. He’s gonna do and say as he believes.
Particularly toward the vicious, the socialist, and the congressional.
