A Holy War Between Donald Trump and Justin Amash Has One Clear Winner
Talk about tails you lose, heads I win. That’s what comes to mind when we hear all this talk from Donald Trump about primarying Justin Amash.
“A senior adviser to President Donald Trump on Saturday urged a primary challenge against a House Freedom Caucus member.”
“Dan Scavino Jr., director of social media and senior White House adviser, tweeted that Michigan Rep. Justin Amash is a “big liability” for the state and encouraged a GOP primary opponent to oust him in 2018.”
“.@realDonaldTrump is bringing auto plants & jobs back to Michigan. @justinamash is a big liability. #TrumpTrain, defeat him in primary,” Scavino wrote.
This is really bad news for Democrats. April Fools! Trump is not going to in any way cow Amash:
“Amash responded to Scavino Saturday afternoon, saying: “Trump admin & Establishment have merged into #Trumpstablishment. Same old agenda: Attack conservatives, libertarians & independent thinkers.”
“Amash, a four-term congressman, hit back at Trump this past week after the president criticized the Freedom Caucus.”
“It didn’t take long for the swamp to drain @realDonaldTrump. No shame, Mr. President. Almost everyone succumbs to the D.C. Establishment,” Amash tweeted Thursday.
“Amash has been a consistent thorn in the side of establishment Republicans, who have tried to oust the 36-year-old lawmaker before, notably when Republican leaders backed businessman Brian Ellis over the incumbent in the 2014 primary. Amash bested Ellis 57 percent to 43 percent.”
In truth, whoever wins this fight, the only real winner is the Democratic party. Trump again shows that he’s far from a genius who has suspended the laws of physics in politics. It’s still the case that you can’t add by subtraction.
On the one hand he offers Democrats nothing, on the other he’s wasting time and resources on primarying someone from his own party. And why? Because Amash has shown he can’t be intimidated by Trump.
Today is April Fools’ Day but for liberals and Democrats it’s Christmas come early.
So long as we’re making April Fools’ jokes, here’s another one: Jared Kushner proves nepotism works. April Fools! Of course, it’s going about how you’d expect it to go.
Kushner is going to solve all the problems of the world-while also explaining his meeting with that Russian banker of bank under sanction from the US.
More good news-Kushner and Bannon are starting to butt heads.
Christmas come early.
P.S. As we saw in my poll out last week, the long awaited poll results are in, and right now I’m just 11 points down vs. Peter King (GOP-NY-District 2). And the voters don’t even know who I am yet.
There is nothing more important in getting answers to Trump-Russia collusion than a Democratic House in 2019. Please donate to help me in my part of the effort to fight for a Dem House.
Thank you. We must have a Dem House. And so, we will
