Tucker Carlson: When AOC, Ilhan Omar and the ‘squad’ are talking, Democrats are losing By Tucker Carlson for Fox News
TDC Note – Tucker Carlson will not be at Fox News much longer. He speaks entirely too much truth to the face of power.
In the series of tweets Sunday, President Trump attacked four freshmen Democrats in Congress: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Ayanna Pressley, and Rashida Tlaib. He called them anti-American. Cable news has been going bonkers ever since.
The consensus in Washington is that Trump made a mistake by once again making the story about himself. Maybe that’s true. Time will tell.
But there’s another way to look at it. By singling out these four members of Congress, the president also highlighted their prominence in the Democratic Party.
Six months ago, these were just four young lefties in a sea of 235 House Democrats. Now, they are the Democratic Party. If you don’t believe it, you must have missed the press conference all the channels took live on Monday. The congresswomen said a lot which will help define the Democratic Party going forward. For example, Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts, explaining that the president is not really the president?
“The remarks from the occupant of our White House — I will always refer to him as the ‘occupant’ as he is only occupying space, and does not embody the grace, the empathy, the compassion, the integrity that that office requires and that the American people deserve,” she said.

So, if you’re not compassionate, according to this member of Congress, you are illegitimate. “This president is illegitimate,” she says because the 2016 election itself was illegitimate. It didn’t go the way Democrats wanted, so, of course, it must have been rigged, three months after the Mueller report showed otherwise.
