The other day, President Trump tweeted about four young radical Democrat Congresswomen: Alexandria Ocasio Cortez, Ilhan Omar, and two others, collectively known as "The Squad."
Speaker of the House and fellow Democrat Nancy Pelosi doesn’t much like The Squad; neither does the less crazy wing of the Democrats.
So Trump thinks: My opponents are fighting amongst themselves. How can I pour kerosene on that fire? So he tweeted:
So interesting to see “Progressive” Democrat Congresswomen, who originally came from countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe, the worst, most corrupt and inept anywhere in the world (if they even have a functioning government at all), now loudly……
....and viciously telling the people of the United States, the greatest and most powerful Nation on earth, how our government is to be run. Why don’t they go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came. Then come back and show us how….
....it is done. These places need your help badly, you can’t leave fast enough. I’m sure that Nancy Pelosi would be very happy to quickly work out free travel arrangements!
These were tough tweets. Four days later, the media is still obsessed with denouncing them, while severely normal people seem to agree with what Trump said.
Trump made The Squad, that tiny fringe, the face of the Democrats — forcing the left, and the media, to defend their extreme politics.
Just about every Canadian news network called Trump's tweets “racist”. Were they? He didn’t mention race at all. Few of the media let their viewers read the tweets in full, because I think they know that most people would say, that’s not really racist; It’s just calling out people bashing America.
But Justin Trudeau couldn’t keep a lid on it. He needs Donald Trump's help badly right now, but his love for the Democrats is too strong.
Today he said that remarks like Trump's are "completely unacceptable" and "should not be allowed in Canada."
Why is the Prime Minister commenting on this? How is that anything other than creating yet another diplomatic incident?
And what does he mean that such comments "should not be allowed in Canada"?
We know his Liberals have been calling for censorship of social media for two years. I think he means you and I will be censored.
However, what's almost as depressing were the comments by Conservative Party leader (and would-be prime minister) Andrew Scheer. TONIGHT I'll explain why.
One day, Donald Trump, will swat back at Trudeau — but hit all of us too. If I worked in one of the few remaining auto factories in Canada, I’d be worried about that.

FINALLY: Your messages to me!
