Rush: POTUS Trump wants to make AOC and ‘Squad’ face of Democrat Party; Rachel Maddow takes the bait
On his Monday program, conservative talk king Rush Limbaugh talked about some tweets POTUS Donald Trump sent over the weekend criticizing House Democrats who frequently bash America and single out Israel for particular scorn as well.
While the president did not name names in his tweets, it was understood he was directing his ire at “The Squad” — far-Left Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY); Ilhan Omar (Minn.); Rashida Tlaib (Mich.); and Ayanna Pressley (Mass.).
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……

Limbaugh speculated that the president sought to isolate those four in particular in a bid to present them as being the new faces of the modern Democrat Party — a militant, America-hating, Left-wing, Marxist/Communist organization that seeks to overturn our founding principles and install a tyrannical government in its place.
“At the very least, you know what you can say is that Donald Trump is helping define the Democrat Party, and in that sense, what Trump is doing here… Whether this is an intended consequence or not, the fact is that Trump is pushing the Democrats and the Drive-Bys into staunchly defending the most radical haters this country has at the moment,” Limbaugh said.
“These people — and it’s not just these four women in the Squad. It’s the entire Democrat Party. Trump is forcing them to come out and defend. Make no mistake about the fact the American people are fully aware of what’s going on on the Democrat side regarding their anti-Americanism,” he continued.
“I think there are more people aware of this than anybody in the Drive-By Media would ever contemplate. I think for as long as Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has been on the scene (and even before that), I think there are so many millions of Americans who are fed up with the anti-American diatribe that has become readily identified with the Democrat Party policy,” Limbaugh noted further. “It is anti-American, it’s anti-American founding, it’s anti-American exceptionalism, it’s anti-American greatness.”
He went on:
They believe this stuff. So here comes Megan Rapinoe or Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez or any of these other people, and the media loves them, and they treat them with kid gloves, and they make ’em big time stars and these people end up believing their own press.
And they are not aware of how much animus they are creating for themselves because they live in this alternative reality where people unlike them are a relative few and a minority and don’t deserve to be dealt with, counted, talked to. They despise us; they hate us; they think they’re the majority…
And yet these people, because of the fawning media coverage they get, end up having this anti-American stuff applauded, validated. They end up thinking they’re big stars. They end up thinking they’re in the majority and when they fade away ’cause nobody has ever cared in the first place, they’re left dumbstruck.
They do not represent the majority of thinking. The fact of the matter is Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her squad members, they are communists. They hate Israel, they do not like the United States, and everybody’s paying attention to them knows this…
As is so often the case, it appears as though Limbaugh’s political observations were spot on.
Not only have top Democrats come out in defense of The Squad, but so has the predictable Left-wing ‘establishment media.’
As Big League Politics noted Tuesday, that includes MSNBC host Rachel Maddow:
…Maddow conducted a congratulatory interview with Minnesota Democrat congresswoman Ilhan Omar Monday, asserting Omar’s visible position as the new face of the Democrat Party.

The interview comes after Omar and the other ‘Squad’ members conducted an incoherent (at times) press conference following POTUS Trump’s earlier presser in which he praised America and ‘invited’ anyone who is unhappy with the country to leave — comments that AOC, Omar, and Co. took personally.
Given the extremely low approval ratings at least some of these women command, according to internal Democrat polling, it is a stroke of genius on the part of POTUS to indeed turn them into the face of the Democrat Party. And the party’s propaganda wing, the mainstream media, appears to be falling right in line with the plan as well.
