#TheSquad Press Conference Backfires Spectacularly

In response to Trump’s tweets this weekend, the Squad of Four decided to hold a press conference. It was time to call him on the carpet! Sadly for them, their grand gesture backfired spectacularly.

Deanna wrote about Trump’s tweets here. And yes, it did seem that he had scored his own goal with that series. Let’s look again at what he said.

“Trump tweeted Sunday that “‘Progressive’ Democrat Congresswomen” should “go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came. Then come back and show us how it’s done.” The tweets sparked outrage among Democrats, particularly “the squad,” whom the tweets were likely about.

Shortly before the press conference, Trump tweeted that the four congresswomen are “anti-Israel, pro Al-Qaeda.” He has continued to defend his remarks despite push-back from Democrats and Republicans.”

So, what do they do? Keep the story going by calling a press conference! I know, you don’t want to watch, but you really should. It’s quite something.

Boy howdy, they sure did trot out all sorts of big words didn’t they??

Now, I do think Nancy Pelosi is a combination of relieved and pissed off about this press conference. Relieved because at least the Squad isn’t going after her at the moment. Pissed off in that they handed Trump and his reelection campaign some serious ammunition!

Ilhan said this during the presser. 

““Right now the president is committing human rights abuses at the border, keeping children in cages, and having human beings drinking out of toilets,” Omar said Monday. “This president, who has been credibly accused of committing multiple crimes, including colluding with foreign government to interfere with our election.”” 

Ilhan STILL won’t answer about all the documentation that has been found regarding her two marriages, and she STILL won’t answer questions regarding her dubious use of campaign money. But sure! Let’s accuse Trump of crimes and trot out that damned collusion thing once more.

Ilhan also refused to answer this question during the presser.

Boy howdy, Ilhan blew it right there. She had a chance to defend herself and slam Trump for his remarks. But instead, she cowers. That will make a GREAT campaign ad for the Republicans!

With all their concern about the detention centers and the issues at the border, you’d think that they’d be eager to condemn Antifa anarchist Willem Van Spronsen’s attack in Tacoma, right? WRONG.

His so-called manifesto echoes much of AOC’s concentration camp rhetoric. So you’d think she’d want to distance herself from him. Nope. Instead we got nothing.

Ayanna Pressley zipped her lips on the issue. Ilhan Omar had nothing to say either.

Remember, all four women have publicly said things that make it clear that they are not fans of this United States.

Ilhan and her comments regarding Al Quaeda, her anti-Semitic tweets regarding Jews and Benjamins, and the atrocious 9/11 ‘some people did something’ commentary.

Rashida Tlaib’s ‘calming feeling’ about the Holocaust, and praise of Arabs who worked with Hitler, and her friendship with Linda Sarsour.

Omar and Tlaib’s support for terrorists.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s distortion of 9/11 plus claiming it’s triggering. And the detention center concentration camp commentary after she emoted across an empty parking lot last fall has made things even worse for our Border Patrol and ICE.

The Squad somehow thought this press conference was a great idea. It certainly was given that they swallowed Trump’s bait hook, line, and sinker. They are now THE FACES of the Democrat Party going into 2020. Faces that are polling horribly. Only 22% have a favorable view of AOC. As for Ilhan? Only 9%. Definitely not a typo there…only 9% of those polled view Ilhan with any favor. Socialism took a big hit as well in the polling.

Memo to The Hen Squad: when you try to punch at Trump and end up smacking your own face, you might want to rethink your strategy. Or not.

    All four of you are completely out of touch with reality. The two Muslims are the worst representation of American people that exist. You’re like the three monkeys – Hear no Evil, Speak no Evil, See no Evil, except you do it in reverse. That’s all you do is speak, see and hear evil everywhere. You are despicable people.

  • Scott says:

    I too was concerned when the President first sent out his tweet, though i did hope that it was a calculated action, vs. the mindless action that your fellow VG assumed it was..
    This press conference shows that with his tweets, the President was one of two things… 1. the luckiest man alive in that they had the worst possible reaction to a stupid decision on his part, or 2. He’s playing them like a stradivarius…

    Based o the actions over the last two years, i’m becoming more inclined to believe that everything he does is calculated, and that the left continues to rise to his bait like a freaking large mouth bass!

    MAGA 2020

    • Born Free says:

      I’ll go with #2. He may have overachieved this time, even given his already stellar track record.

    • Anthony Dorazio says:

      The most disappointing thing about Trumps pushback on the anti-American sentiment from the left is that the GOP are largely too afraid to speak. Why not use their voices to explain where he is coming from, how correct he is on so many points, and how while he may offend some it is only because he is a brutally frank New Yorker, and we love him for that.

      But they are too timid to do that. Not holding my breath.

      • Scott says:

        Or maybe they could grow a pair, and point out how the entire dem party is behind these leftist un-American nutjobs, and that it just shows how far left the entire party has moved, regardless of their denials.

      • Kelt says:

        At this point, some well-timed supporting comments from a variety of GOP sources would be good, to keep hope in the GOP.
        It’s about2-3 months too early for a full-throated roar of support.

        By the first of the year we conservatives need to be planning just how to plan the events and grassroots push to both counter the Socialist’s actions, and get the solid Americans energized for this very important 2020 election where we give our guy 4 more years to straighten things out, as we take back the House and increase the Senate holdings with conservative-minded people.

      • AesopFan says:

        “the GOP are largely too afraid to speak”

        We don’t need any more Conservative faces that don’t want to be a Conservative voice.

      • Greg M. says:

        Interestingly, both Dr. Ben Carson and Nick Pilgrim (both black) defended POTUS Trump. Carson flatly stated that the tweets were NOT racist; Pilgrim went farther, saying that Trump is probably the least racist POTUS the U.S. has ever had!

    • Kelt says:

      You teeter in the edge of giving up on President Trump, it seems.

      To me, his tweet was a bit surprising, at first. But I’ve learned that you should never take all on face value with this statesman-in-plain-language genius (SIPLG).

      The reaction was exactly as I’d hoped.

  • 370H55V says:

    Let’s also not forget that Rashida Tlaib called Trump a motherfucker too. That’s really bringing civility back to political discourse.

  • RT says:

    Reducing the cost of prescription drugs???? The Dems voted against all measures to do exactly that! They prey of stupid people who are too damned lazy to get off their asses and actually learn the truth! These women are 1 trick ponies! They DO OT CARE ABOUT BROWN PEOPLE!……JUST THEIR VOTES!

  • BurkeanMama says:

    And this is why it was a great idea for President Trump to enter this fray with his tweets. President Trump wants to keep these women front and center as the face of the party. The more the American people hear about and from these women, the worse for the Democrats. A brilliant play by the President.

  • Mark says:

    He sees this ‘Squad’ as a gift, and plays it as such. I knew he was smart, I’ve worked in New York as a Journeyman and union guys there love him for the enormous jobs he does and everyone gets paid, but I didn’t know he was the 3D chess player that could give Mr. Spock a run for his money. I am constantly impressed with the guy, and am so damn glad we have him and he speaks for us, the working Americans who love this Country.

  • mackykam says:

    these 4 are the result of giving women the vote, lol!

  • David says:

    Reminds me of the time that Sen. William Scott had been voted (in an obviously tongue-in-cheek poll) “Dumbest Senator.”

    Whereupon he called a press conference to deny that he was…

    You really can’t make this stuff up…

  • The Demon Slick says:

    Now Pelosi has to defend the people trying to oust her. Bravo President Trump, bravo.

  • Michael Lonie says:

    I have thought for a long time that if you scratch an anti-Semite you’ll find an anti-American and if you scratch an anti-American you’ll find an anti-Semite. These four are excellent examples of a one-to-one correspondence.

    At the risk of sounding mystical, I believe our futures are intertwined. America and the Jews, including Israel, will stand or fall together. So the coupling of the two hatreds makes perfect sense.

    • Mimi says:

      What a perspicacious observation. Kudos.

      • Jeremy Abrams says:

        I’m Jewish, and while your comment is gracious, I’d say America and Judaism, but not any particular crop of Jews, are intertwined, but Christianity is essential to the nation’s success as well.

  • Kate says:

    The 4 donkey’s made asses of themselves witnessed by all, triggered by our great President Trump.
    Trump 2020.

  • zenman says:

    When I read what Trump tweeted I too initially thought of Napoleons supposed maxim “Never interfere with the enemy when he is in the process of destroying himself.” BUT too many times Trump has made “errors” according to the professional pundits, only to be rewarded by his base and increasing numbers in public polls.

    So, when Trump does something that seems dumb, remember the reaction is what Trump is after. Trumps opponents (some of them true enemies) are predictable in that they ALWAYS overreact.

  • GWB says:

    it did seem that he had scored his own goal with that series
    There were plenty of us who said otherwise.

    Right now the president is committing human rights abuses at the border, keeping children in cages, and having human beings drinking out of toilets
    Lie. Lie. And lie. I think the only correct bits in that statement were “the president”, “right now”, and “human beings”.

    credibly accused of committing multiple crimes
    Another lie. Oh yes, he’s been accused, but not credibly.

    she cowers
    No, she dodged. She ducked. But she didn’t cower – she’s a STRONG WOC, don’t you know! And she’ll continue to fling lies and innuendo to slander this president as bold as can be!

    Trump is making these four women the face of his opposition. The only difficulty will be if their constituents work to dump them – then who will he run against? But, given the rank stupidity of those who voted them into office, I find that risk to be a low probability of occurrence.

  • Skillyboo says:

    The one thing that jumps out about this, and most, ‘press’ conferences is the dems never address the message and are never asked to, they only attack the messenger.

    • Deborah Lemons says:

      So right you are Skillyboo. Dems, esp. leftist/socialist never ever address the messages or issues and they are never ask to comment or explain their (silly/stupid) statements or accusations. It is ALWAYS attack the messenger; classic Hilaryism.

  • Lonnie Albertson says:

    When the “squad” speaks, it is ONLY lies. When have we ever had such delusional, deceitful, demonic cretins in DC? Insanity seems to be the norm lately, and they must have ALL caught it from Fancy Nancy, who shows signs of senility more every day. “Despicable”, has people competing for the title and they fail at the job they were hired for while spending all their time and our money attacking the best President we have ever had. Resolutions of condemnation is not acceptable from the malcontents that obstruct every positive effort by Trump. Where were these gushing supporters during the real criminal rule of the ineligible criminal they foisted on fancy nan’s vetting of the arrogant bastard that preceded TRUMP?

  • Lori Ross says:

    See their manifesto at JusticeDemocrats.com in which they have sworn allegiance
    Could someone investigate?

  • Skillyboo says:

    Here’s the entire 3 tweets in order. Judge for yourself if it was racist. The second to last sentence is always omitted .
    “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!”

  • cameron says:

    And this is a congresswoman that married her brother!

  • Kay DeWitt says:

    This agenda of hatred that has been spewed out at our president from the day this man took office not only makes a mockery of the Constitution, but also, and more importantly, makes a mockery of our God ON whom we founded our nation on! It’s time for Christians….who TRULY know how to give witness TO the Christ they claim to serve….via loving as HE loves…which means loving the sinner while, concomitanly, hating his sin….TO STEP UP TO THE PLATE AND MAKE THEIR
    VOICES HEARD…especially since is the only love that will stop school shootings!

  • Ann says:

    These women just stand up there and lie, people aren’t stupid, they know that they are lying, in my opinion they just made fools of themselves calling that press conference, they call everyone that doesn’t agree with them racist, but they spew racism, if you are brown or black you have to agree with Ayanna Presley? What is that but racism? All these women think that the ridiculous opinions they have are important NOT. I think President Trump outsmarts them at every turn.

  • Marguerite says:

    It’s hard to believe how incredibly stupid these 4 are. They don’t support American Citizens at all. Need to be tried for treason, convicted and sent to prison for life. They are supposed to be lawmakers not idiot mouthpieces for terrorists
