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.

BTW, future historians?
-The 6 Dems he identifies as ‘savages’ are 4 women of color & 2 Jewish men.
-No Dem ever spread a lie that DT wasn’t really born here.

@GOP so your guy is out here calling Jewish people & women of color savages when there are over 200 democrats who support impeachment and you're ok with that along with everything else? Y'all do know this this guy isn't God, right?

Of all the Democrats calling for impeachment, Donald Trump singles out two Jewish congressmen and four female lawmakers of colour and calls them "Savages"…. https://t.co/TJZQVcr4VA

Two Jewish Congressmen and Four Congresswomen of Color are "Savages"? That is a disgusting amount of racist rhetoric. And fyi the GOP has no loyalty to you, Democrats and Republicans should be loyal to the country first.

clever way to phrase that… so basically he called them democrat savages but you HAD to highlight the "4 women of color" before adding those 2 white men to make it seem racist.

So, are you saying that it’s not the entire Democratic Party who are savages, it’s just the Jewish and women of color Democrats?

Trump singles out as “Democrat Savages”, 2 Jews, 4 women of color, and of course, he throws in an Obama for good measure.
Tell us how you’re the “least racist” person, you orange buffoon. https://t.co/ic2IwQ93ad
