Moments after Donald Trump raged on Twitter at “Democrat Savages” for pursuing impeachment proceedings against him, observant commenters noted that the president singled out only lawmakers of color and Jewish Democrats out of the 230 currently in the House — along with mentioning former President Barack Obama.

On Saturday morning Trump aimed his barbs at Democrats by writing, “Can you imagine if these Do Nothing Democrat Savages, people like Nadler, Schiff, AOC Plus 3, and many more, had a Republican Party who would have done to Obama what the Do Nothings are doing to me. Oh well, maybe next time!”

Noting that both Reps. Jerry Nadler (D-NY) and Adam Schiff (D-CA) are both Jewish, and that Trump also singled out Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and the other three members of the “Squad” who are all women of color, many saw the attack as Trump’s bigotry rising to the surface.

As Washington Post columnist Dana Milbank bluntly pointed out: “See how he does that? More than 200 House Democrats support impeachment, but the ones he singles out as “Savages” are two Jews and four women of color.”

He wasn’t the only one to note the president’s choice of targets.

Conservative says Trump’s tax revelations show another reason he’s so terrified to leave office

Published

on

Conservative Washington Post writer Max Boot noted that the recent revelations about President Donald Trump's taxes expose the real reason that he's terrified to leave office.

Writing Monday, Boot began by admitting that Hillary Clinton was right all along. It's one of many things she warned of in the 2016 election that went ignored by the Republican Party and the majority of voters in Rust Belt states.

"He managed to pay no federal income taxes at all in 10 of the previous 15 years — and only $750 in 2016 and 2017 — by claiming vast losses from his business empire," Boot said, citing the New York Times report. "That $750 figure is a killer because it’s a number that middle-class Americans can understand. As a just-released Biden campaign ad points out, that’s far less than the taxes paid by the average teacher, nurse or firefighter."
