After GOP 2018 tax cut plans fell apart, immigration filled the campaign void

So transparent. Yet Trumpkins only hear the propaganda fed via Fox “News”, and continue to support these clowns. Sad!

https://www.washingtonpost.com/busin...1f2_story.html

Quote:
Now, with their 2018 tax plans having failed to come to fruition, and their 2017 tax law still polling poorly, Trump and a number of other Republicans have made a hard pivot away from economics and into nationalism, a debate with heavy racial overtones meant to energize the conservative base ahead of Tuesday’s midterm elections.

The shift has seen a party that planned a traditional conservative economic message return instead to the themes Trump hit heavily in his 2016 GOP takeover: claiming that immigrants pose a threat and that Democrats are eager to let them in.

“If you don’t want America to be overrun by masses of illegal aliens and giant caravans, you better vote Republican,” Trump said Thursday at a Missouri rally.

GOP congressman, who once lamented not being able to call women 'sluts,' loses to a woman

Gee what a shame.

America's Problem Isn't Tribalism—It's Racism
Only one of America’s major political parties relies on stoking hatred and fear against those outside its coalition.

From the Atlantic article cited by Chicks:

Quote:
In the fallout from Tuesday’s midterm elections, many political analysts have concluded that blue America and red America are ever more divided, ever more at each other’s throats. But calling this “tribalism” is misleading, because only one side of this divide remotely resembles a coalition based on ethnic and religious lines, and only one side has committed itself to a political strategy that relies on stoking hatred and fear of the other. By diagnosing America’s problem as tribalism, chin-stroking pundits and their sorrowful semi-Trumpist counterparts in Congress have hidden the actual problem in American politics behind a weird euphemism.
The 'false equivalence' view of the parties does not stand up to scrutiny.

Millionaire Rudy Giuliani Cries Poor in Divorce Court After Spending Big on Alleged Mistress
Trump’s lawyer spent a quarter-million dollars on his new love since splitting from his wife (and $12,000 on cigars), but he doesn’t want to pay spousal support.

How Trumpian.
