Remember that famous U.S. basketball team from 1992 nicknamed the “DreamTeam”? This team of four congresswomen might just be President Trump’s own Dream Team.
The Squad may be talking the talk against the president of the United States, but President Trump is the one walking the walk.
Just to prove his point, the president has made the four radical congresswomen known as the ‘Squad” the new faces of the Democratic Party in an advertisement for his 2020 campaign. His campaign has released an ad, allowing the four Democrats to speak for themselves, or rather, incriminate themselves.
Members of the squad are Ilhan Omar, who represents the 5th district of Minnesota; Ayanna Pressly, 7th-Massachusetts; Rashida Tlaib, 13th-Michigan, and Alexandia Ocasio-Cortez, 14th-New York.
The president features in the ad, highlighting each member’s radical outbursts or actions, then the camera progresses to the squad member.
First on the chopping block is Omar, “She pleaded for compassion for ISIS recruits attempting to join the terrorist organization,” says the president about a letter Omar wrote to a judge on behalf of nine young terrorists, “She was looking for compassion.”
The president continued, “And she looks down with contempt on the hardworking Americans by saying ignorance is pervasive in many parts of this country.” The video clip shows Omar saying this very thing.
Next in the limelight is Tlaib with her rant in a bar, the president said she “used the F-word to describe the presidency and your president. That’s not nice, even for me.”
The video of Tlaib at the Detroit Economic Club on August 2016, when the then-candidate Donald Trump was giving a speech, shows her being ejected, ranting and screaming, “We’re gonna impeach the motherf****er.”
Pressley is the third squad member in the firing line, the president reiterated her words from the video, “We don’t need any more brown faces that don’t want to be brown voices, ‘we don’t black faces that don’t wanna be a black voice’ … Can you imagine if I said that?” quipped the president.
Last but not least, we come to Ocasio-Cortez who before becoming a congresswoman was a bartender. Her reply to the president’s National address on Jan. 18, where he spoke of the illegal immigration issue, was, in his words, “Cortez said that illegal immigrants are more American than any person who seeks to keep them out ever will be. Can you believe that? That’s what she’s saying.”
Her final words spoken on the video: “Yeah, you know, if that’s what radical means, call me a radical.”
White House counselor Kellyanne Conway said the four represent the “dark underbelly” of America, with no respect for the flag, nor American values. “(They) have done squat in Congress other than pose on magazine covers and go on late-night comedy shows and cause trouble in their own caucus,” Conway told Fox News.
Watch the video below for the full impact, it is not looking too promising for the Democrats in 2020. Dream team indeed.
