Without a doubt, one of the most enduring
falsehoods myths Democrats and the mainstream media have perpetuated about President Trump for the last 3 years (including during his presidential campaign) is that he only criticizes people who don’t look and like him and who don’t share his political views.
In other words, he reserves his ire only for Democratic women, black people, Latinos, etc. The reason for that, they say, is because he’s a white nationalist who wants to suppress minority voices.
Here's the thing ppl conveniently forget about Trump: If the Squad were made up of 4 white ppl, Trump would still target them. He's shown time & again he is an equal opportunity disser. As distasteful as the chant was, Trump himself is not targeting the Squad bc of their race. https://t.co/8kr5r48fQw

It just so happens that the four people who are saying awful things about America are WOC. It’s a mistake to think he’d hold back if they happened to be white. Think of all the people he’s targeted during his administration – even in his own party. Many have been white.
Saying he targets The Squad because they are WOC is as foolish as saying Pelosi dissed them because they are WOC. They just happen to be the loudest ones in the crowd, & loud folks tend to get noticed more. This is not about race, no matter how badly politically opportunistic people want it to be.
If the left wants to say he’s a jerk to people, fine, but saying this is about racism is inflammatory and wrong.
Again, he’s an equal opportunity “disser.” He was like this in 2016 against Republicans and Democrats alike, and he hasn’t changed. And won’t.
On Wednesday, when the incendiary accusations against Trump and Republicans of being terrorist enablers with “blood on their hands” were at a fever pitch – and Trump was was responding to them, ABC News‘s White House reporter Meridith McGraw compiled a list of people the President had criticized so far that day:
A non-exhaustive list of who/what President Trump attacked today as he cris-crossed the country to meet with victims of mass shootings…
Fox News' Shepard Smith
Sen. Sherrod Brown, D-Ohio
Dayton Mayor Whaley
The New York Times

Wait, what? Impossible:
This can't be right. Because I've been told the President only targets persons of color, and there are a lot of white folks on this list. https://t.co/iG1cxsfg2u

This is what I call “accidental journalism” – when a member of the mainstream media accidentally reports an inconvenient (to the left) truth about a Republican.
