The core issue is these 4 Congresswomen could very well be seen as the symbolic face of America

As opposed to Trump

It's day vs night, bigger than Democratic Party vs Republican Party or left wing vs right wing, it's...

Meritocracy vs inheritance
Action vs reaction
Activism vs laziness
Civic participation vs keeping others away from the table
Inclusion vs exclusion
Pluralism vs exclusivism
Self-empowerment vs hostile privilege
Progress vs holding onto the past
"I earned it because I work hard, I study hard, and I didn't do it alone" vs "I earned it because I'm rich and that automatically makes me right and smarter than everyone else"
Hope and change vs paranoia and stagnation

There's a real possibility that when people think of "America", inside and out, they no longer see Trump's mug, but these 4 Congresswomen.

I know I do.

That might also explain the fixation from the right against these 4. They want to destroy the set of things on the left side of that list.

The contest to be the face of America is going on now. I'd rather have the values of that left side of that be our symbolic face, even if that means a permanently diminished symbolic role for the POTUS even after Trump.

1. That's exactly how President Rapist Sociopath wants it.

The symbolic face of Liberal America. He can gin up fear and loathing against them.

His base has no fucking clue what they've actually said about anything.

2. They're smart, patriotic, wanting to help, non-white and female. There's NOTHING wrong with any of

... that and the supposition from many of the media that there is misses Red Don's racism to the upmost.

Trump is a racist, he doesn't care about the leftist angle !!

Damn
