Trump Tweets Ignite Firestorm -- On the Right

Trump’s tweets have always been tailored to generate a gut response.

The three surest ways to get Americans shouting at each other are: A controversial call in a playoff game watched by millions; bringing up sensitive political issues at the Thanksgiving dinner table after everyone spent the day traveling, drinking, or both; or President Trump hitting Twitter on a Sunday morning.

No doubt you saw Trump’s latest tweetstorm, in which he said it is “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.” He suggested they “go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came,” and only then “come back and show us how it is done.” Trump concluded with a helpful (?) reminder that “these places need your help badly,” therefore those progressive Democrats “can’t leave fast enough.”

The reaction from the folks Barack Obama once dismissed as the “professional left” were as rapid as they were rabid — and utterly predictable. Trump’s thrust, presumably aimed at Reps. Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib, was basically: Before you change America into something it wasn’t meant to be, go fix your old sh*thole countries into something better they could be.”

On the Right however the reactions are all over the place, with even some Trump supporters arguing that this time, the President has gone too far.
