House Democrats may have appeared united in the resolution condemning President Trump for a series of tweets aimed at Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), and Ayanna Pressley (D-MA), but behind the scenes we have chaos. A few talked to Tapper off the record and noted this whole fiasco has been a massive win for the Trump White House. There was infighting between AOC and Speaker Pelosi, which is good, but what’s even better is forcing the Democratic leadership to re-embrace this Leninist Girl Scout Troop from Hell and their extremist agenda and anti-Semitic remarks. Oh, and Omar made sure to make it clear to CBS’s Gayle King that she doesn’t regret her remarks. 

"The president won this one,” said one House Democrat to Tapper, “What the president has done is politically brilliant. Pelosi was trying to marginalize these folks and the president has now identified the entire party with them." 

He noted all of this in a lengthy Twitter thread:

There were also worries that AOC and her crew’s antics won’t help moderate House Democrats keep their seats in 2020. With them defining the party, that’s very possible. Have you seen the polling? The agenda peddled by these women are viewed as straight trash

“Anything that takes away from bread and butter issues is playing into his [Trump’s] hands, said another Democrat. 

There’s also great hesitancy to defend this quartet over their absurd claims that we have concentration camps on the southern border in a not so subtle reference to the Nazi Holocaust. The irony is that soon after these allegations were lobbed by AOC, she quoted a Nazi sympathizer on Twitter. And defending these women means defending their anti-Semitic antics, which Omar has been their top quarterback. While some tried to work on a package to help the overcrowding in the detention centers, this crew attacked them for being complicit for putting kids in cages. Why? Well, anything that enforces immigration law is seen that way. It’s evil in their eyes. They’re for open borders. 

“I can't tell you the number of Members who are angry and annoyed about them criticizing us,” said another Democrat. 

And while there is agreement that the president’s tweets should be criticized, where were these people when the House tried to condemn anti-Semitism. Over the weekend, Trump said that these women should go back to their crime-infested places from whence they came, fix it, and come back. He later doubled down and said if they don’t like it here, they can leave.

Oh, and there’s the whole part about this four-headed monster backing primary challenged. AOC and her Justice Democrats have said they are in no way backing off from possibly challenging incumbent Democrats next year. Needless to say, that hasn’t sat well with their Democratic colleagues. It looks like Trump just outflanked them.
