Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Thursday, July 18, 2019

A reelection campaign dominated by incendiary chants of "send her back" is a worst-case scenario for President Trump, warn senior Republicans who are moving swiftly to douse a political prairie fire sparked by the commander-in-chief's use of the mantra to attack some Democrats in Congress. The president during the rally did not scold the engaged crowd after they responded to his mention of Omar with chants of "send her back" in a scene that one Republican operative likened to a "scary," vigilante mob. "It's totally unacceptable," Rep. Tom Cole, R-Okla., said. "I don't think using that kind of rhetoric and expressing that kind of sentiment ever helps," Cole said. "I see no political upside to it whatsoever and I see lots of downside."

"I see no political upside to it whatsoever and I see lots of downside."

Trump didn't stop it because:

1) He took the chanting as adulation.

2) He agreed with it.

Racism helped Trump get elected the first time. Republicans need to decide if this is the kind of America they want.

Trump is just using 4D chess moves to get the Dems to send Melania back out of spite, so he can marry his one true love.

#2 they've already decided.

That's why only a few lonely voices in the wilderness have spoken out against Trump.
