Unintended consequences

turns into a kick in the teeth to Donald Trump.

He orchestrates his MAGATs and entices them to spew and fling raging foam from their mouths at Ilhan Omar in knee jerk spasms to scream “Send her back!”, “Send her back!”

So Ilhan Omar goes back home and receives a hero’s welcome from her American constituents at the airport chanting their welcome message.

Trump has a meltdown! He has just made her a worldwide hero and a household name.

25. He lives in his own distorted bubble

He tells his crowd that he is their favorite president and they cheer. So he extrapolates and assumes that everyone loves him.



So he could never imagine that Rep. Omar would be treated this way.

Note: guessing he doesn't know what "extrapolate" means.

He's unlovable and he knows it
Decent people don't even want him around - he had to beg for a meal with the British queen.

We are having to live through this chaos as by-standers. I cannot imagine being him, or a family member, having to live in this chaos 24/7. No wonder he's mentally ill.

Racists go low..the American way goes high!!!! The embrace of Ilhan Omar is heart warming and encouraging - there are more of us than of them...

Americans are woke!!!!!!

He’s been trying to stage something like this all his life for his own benefit, but that would mean he has to fly regular and walk into an airport where there are PEOPLLLLLLE! Real, unpaid peoplllle!

16. EVERY rally is staged.

I hear you

The reality is that those demonstrations are staged to a certain degree. People who like Ohmar likely knew she was coming home, threw something together, and called the media.

Trump is trying to conflate that type of grass roots "staging" with what he and his cronies do.


Trump's rallies are obviously orchestrated on a professional level to try and make him look as good as possible, to the point where it is obvious. His press conferences, anything he does is done deliberately to avoid the regular mistakes and lack of ability to be spontaneous and to get the most sycophantic people around him.

Of course Ohmar's arrival was not a, "Oh I happened to be at the airport with a sign, with a bunch of other people and cameras" spontaneous event. The difference is that The supporters were motivated to go there by themselves and didn't need professional coordination, a promise of money or a spectacle.

Trump is upset that people actually, naturally, and with reason, like Ilan Ohmar.

21. You got that right.

If you can't be alone with yourself in a room, and care about yourself in a meaningful way, there is no amount of adoration you can have, or buy, or rent that will fill that void.

Trump does not understand love. His value of himself is completely pathological. I would feel sympathy for him if he wasn't such a destructive asshole.

22. That may be debatable

Narcissist are capable of feeling profound love, sympathy and empathy, but only for themselves. Their self pity is gargantuan. They know their self pity is the best too, because it’s the one thing they know is sincere!

24. Send her back....to Congress!

After some meetings and much-deserved rest at home........

Local coverage: http://www.startribune.com/supporters-rally-around-ilhan-omar-following-send-her-back-attacks/512917102/

(snip)
More than 100 people filled the baggage claim area with songs, signs and cheers of “Welcome home, Ilhan,” providing a stark contrast to chants of “Send her back!” that reverberated through a Trump rally in North Carolina just a day before. In brief remarks, a defiant Omar vowed to “continue to be a nightmare to this president, because his policies are a nightmare to us.”

“We are not deterred, we are not frightened, we are ready. We are in the ring,” Omar said before departing for a town hall in south Minneapolis. “We are in the people’s house, and we are going to continue to fight it until we have the America we know we all deserve.”

KY.......

Trifecta!

Have another Big Mac and fries, donnie two-scoops! Save some room for some KFC later tonight. And ice cream, of course.

Between the stress from the headlines and the high-fat/sodium/cholesterol/sugar intake, soon we won’t need Article 25. As if the Cabinet (of acting appointees) or Senate had collective spines.
