First of all, if you missed it, ya gotta read “Woman’s Boyfriend Shoots Her In The Head, But She Forgets For Almost Two Months So They Keep Dating.”
On Saturday, the President had a few choice words for Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, House Judiciary Chairman Jerrold Nadler, and House Intelligence Committee Chair Adam Schiff:
“Can you imagine if these Do Nothing Democrat Savages, people like Nadler, Schiff, AOC Plus 3, and many more, had a Republican Party who would have done to Obama what the Do Nothings are doing to me. Oh well, maybe next time!”

His post, of course, hits the Twitterwaves amid escalating chants of “Impeach!” (Also, “Impeach the Mother*****r!” — here)
Personally, I find the Democrats’ move rather odd:
Firstly, keeping the Ukraine issue in the news will drag Joe through the mud and give Elizabeth a chance to take the lead (which she already has, according to this poll).
And, as I noted previously:
“[A]s surely many would agree, Donald Trump against the mild-mannered Democrat in a no-holds-barred debate will be like Dracula fighting a mosquito — they may both technically be out for blood, but one will just step on the other.”
Secondly, what’s the idea here? America voted in Trump. Why keep trying to fight the election, aka the will of the people? Trump’s already more than half-way through the term, and you’re still trying to undo 2016?
If they’re right about America, and if they have superior ideas, he’ll be ousted in 2020.
It seems the only reason to try to kick him out the back door is if they believe he’ll win again.
And if they believe that, then they believe it’s what America wants. Why, then, would they attempt to cut off at the pass the very country they serve?
Over and over, they’ve said Trump is a threat to Democracy. Isn’t that what they’re being, if the above is the case?
And if they’re that sure he’ll be re-elected, why wouldn’t they try to change lever-pulling minds by convincing America liberal policies are superior?
Regardless, Nadler responded to the President’s jab:
Don’t let the President change the subject. He got caught soliciting a foreign leader for help with his campaign at the expense of U.S. national security. Again. https://t.co/MPWId73use

Alexandria likened it to a remix:
To be honest, it should really be @AyannaPressley plus 3 since she is *easily* the best singer out of all of us.

As for the other mention in Trump’s Twittering, the Schiff riff is easy to understand; Fox reports:
On Thursday, Schiff pressed Acting Director of National Intelligence Joseph Maguire on his decision to not to relay a whistleblower complaint about that call. Instead of sending the complaint to the inspector general, Maguire notified the White House.
But their quest appears destined to lead nowhere:
Trump, on Wednesday, released a rough transcript of his call with Zelensky. Neither that transcript nor the whistleblower report contained an explicity quid pro quo offer of foreign aid for an investigation into Biden. But some Democrats have suggested the transcript clearly showed Trump seeking some kind of exchange with the Ukrainian government.
Man, I sure do miss the days when Washington was about the debate of ideas.
Remember JFK? That guy had some notions.
It seems the only idea contemporary Democrats have to offer is “Trump is Lucifer.”
I don’t see that playing particular well.
Voters will get to the polls and realize there’s no one else and nothing else to vote for — Dems spent the last four years just calling Trump a poopie pants.
Then he’ll get clinch another 4 years, and they’ll be crapping themselves.
Welcome to Washington D.C., where the D.C. stands for Diaper Change.
