in the vicinity ofthe video Howard Kurtz: Some in the GOP President’s challenge to the termination of four Democratic women
‘MediaBuzz’ host Howard Kurtz weighs in on how to Trump hard attacks have brought forth, the debate, which he wants, focused on the Socialist Democrats.
Since I have been rough on President Trump’s attacks on the Democratic freshmen, and because of the media outrage was deafening, and because all of the house Democrats (and four Republicans) voted for a resolution condemning his tweets, I’m going to start, by the word of the President of the supporters.
House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy said yesterday that he believes that Trump’s attacks are racist. “I think this is about the ideology. … It is all politics,” he said.
Newt Gingrich, said Trump believes, “the more he the Land, to the so-called squad, the more he can tell you who to be, how radical they are, and as fundamentally anti-American, your views are; in the long term, the better he is.”
Maryland GOP Congressman Andy Harris said the tweets are “obviously racist”, but “if someone does not agree with someone, the default value is a racist and this is no exception.”
He said Trump “meant might have to go back to the district that you came from or the neighborhood they came,” but the President has spoken explicitly about it, Ilhan Omar and Somalia.
Fox News ” Jesse Watters said, while his mother look at the tweets as racist, “Mama’s gone scare me. These were not racist. This was about patriotism. What time is Love it or leave it have a’?’ to be racist? Don’t just leave it, hey, you come back and help us fix our problems.”
And the President himself not tweeted yesterday that “I have a Racist bone in my body!” add: “The Democrat women in Congress were spewing some of the most vile, racist, hateful and disgusting things ever said to a politician, of the house or the Senate, but yet they get a free pass and a big hug from the democratic party. … Why isn’t the house vote a rebuke of the dirty and hate-laced things that you have said?”

What the Republican party now wants to or is forced to, since most of the members believe that it is political suicide to themselves, trump is the blurring of the debate.
In this view, it is not to say Trump, the women should return to “” where they came from before returning, it is Tlaib about the left extremism AOC, Omar, Ayanna Pressley, and Rashida.
This is, I believe, was trump’s strategy all along, to have enough of a fire storm, you will be the face of the Democratic party, and his own first attacks beside the point.
This is what Lindsey Graham have been pointing in slightly the fact that his Golf-buddy “aim higher” when threshing We all know the first semester: “that the AOC and this audience are a bunch of Communists. They hate Israel, they hate our country.”
(His former house colleague Joe Scarborough, accusing him of “McCarthyism.”)
A handful of Republicans, meanwhile, spoke out against the President’s attacks on the four women:
Mitt Romney: “Destructive, demeaning, and disunifying.” Lisa Murkowski: “There is no excuse for the President’s spiteful comments–they were absolutely unacceptable, and must stop.” Tim Scott, the only black Republican in the Senate, rebuked the trump card for the “unacceptable personal attacks and racially-tinged language.”
There are great challenges for the media. I said yesterday on “America’s Newsroom” that news outlets should be careful about branding Trump the attacks as racist, as if it is an undisputed fact. CNN, CBS, ABC, and, after an internal debate, the Washington Post, are among those who have done so in just messages and segments.
My view is that readers and viewers are smart, especially when the President used the language, which is closely connected to the historical “go reflect back to Africa” taunts against black.
Coverage of the story that are aggressive, things were, and they can make up their own minds. You are not acting like the opposition party.
A bigger question is whether the media play in the President’s hands. An editorial in the New York Times is accusing Trump of the politics of distraction:
“His comments elicited exactly the kind of media coverage and public outcry that he is alive. So, he did what he usually does: He went a step further…
“Mr. Trump’s place, the target of an endless culture war put his political critics in a quandary. You can bait and fight back, participate in the column, the deflection, it is designed to power his trailer, or you can ignore his outbursts and risk normalization of his terrible behavior.”

The fact is that a President can command the attention of the media whenever he wants to, and that was in the Twitter age as well. And when a President makes divisive accusations of this magnitude, and the other party explodes in outrage, that is a very big story, which cannot be minimized or ignored.
To do otherwise is to try to stage the news for political reasons. And besides, it never works.
