Axios insists that President Trump’s fight with the Squad was purely impulsive. I’m not nearly as certain of that. In fact, there’s some pretty solid thinking that this was intentional and well-executed. In an interview with Bill Hemmer, Newt Gingrich explained that President Trump plays chess while his opponents play tic-tac-toe. I tend to believe Gingrich because he’s bested too many people for this to be accidental.

Katie Pavlich seems to think there’s a method to President Trump’s madness, too:

“I think that President Trump making these women the face of the Democratic Party as they want to be. They want to burn it down. They want their socialist policies to reign,” Pavlich said on ‘The Five.’ “Democrats are going to find out a whole lot more about who they are because they’re going to primary them as we just saw.”

Nothing about the Squad’s behavior says that they’re respectful. If anything, their actions signal that they’re extremely disrespectful. These women have made it pretty clear that they aren’t interested in being key parts of the Democratic Party. They want to be the Democratic Party.

Newt’s right. Democrats will likely be united. That isn’t automatically a positive thing, especially in the time of AOC + 3. Uniting around insane things still creates a landslide. Further, Pelosi, the leftist pundits and the propaganda wing of the Democratic Party, aka the media, can whine all they want about moderates. Now that the moderates have voted to protect AOC + 3, who will believe that there are still moderate Democrats?

It’s obvious that President Trump doesn’t just want to win re-election. He certainly wants that but he wants to recapture the majority in the House and grow the Republicans’ majority in the Senate. To do that, he’ll need a supercharged GOP coming out of the convention. Based on the fundraising numbers and the numbers of people volunteering at the rallies, I’m betting that President Trump will get his wish.
