I really wish these four congresswomen were not holding a press conference

The Democrats need to present a united front right now and not put these four women out by themselves.

they also don't need to turn this into a battle between Trump and the Squad. That can't end well. It needs to be cleared to the public that it's Trump against the rest of us

The last thing any Dem should be doing right now is alienating these fine Americans but I guess some people canít help themselves by wanting these four representatives to shut up and be silent.

4. They either put them out by themselves or they're out there on their own, separate from the rest of

the party.

Either way it's not the right message

The president would love nothing more than to isolate this into a fight between him and these four Congresswomen.

I could be wrong, but I think it's a mistake. We'll see.

Speaker Pelosi is on board with the "squad" why else is she putting a motion on the House floor condemning Trump's tweets? A condemnation of the "squad's" press conference is a condemnation of Pelosi.

It seems to me that the purpose of this thread is to get Democrats to fight among themselves again. Trump just gave Speaker Pelosi the means to unite her caucus.

31. Yep, young women of color are supposed to sit down and

be quiet.

Principles don't matter, all that matters is protecting the Moderates by doing nothing to rock the boat.

They are supposed to be virtually invisible unless someone asks them a question, then they should answer, in quiet, respectful tones, with eyes downcast, ankles daintily crossed and hands resting in their laps. Never, ever should they speak or otherwise articulate unless someone tells them to and tells them what to say in order not to offend.

At least that is what people seem to expect of them.

Maybe you are concerned about the 4 women? Maybe you want them to be quiet so that they stop getting death threats from white supremacists? If that is your purpose, it is a noble one.

Speaker Pelosi is on board with this press conference, right? Why else is the Speaker putting a motion on the House floor condemning Trump's tweets?

Trump's 35% base isn't going to grow any more than it already is.

They reiterated their committment to work for policies that help - not hurt - the vast majority of Americans. I have no problem that Omar and Talib re-stated their previous support of impeaching Trump. (BTW, there are now between 79 and 83 Dems supporting an impeachment inquiry.)

Maybe these women didn't want leadership at their press conference and leadership deferred to them.

The "4 women against Trump" is the reason I didn't think the press conference was a good idea. But do you really think that if these women didn't want to appear alone and wanted their colleagues to stand with them in solidarity, not one Democratic Member would have agreed to join them? Not one?

If you want a united front stop fucking asking repukes to become decent people and act with integrity.

If you want a united front than present one. Stop alienating the strong voices that are saying what needs to be said.

57. Stop being a wimp

That was one of the most inspiring press conferences I've seen in years.

59. They did well, I think

Sane, smart, reasonable as compared to Dotard's racist blathering.

60. An all time epic fail

You may want to find a Bartman to blame for this flame out.

67. Pelosi should have summoned every Dem MOC to be there in support

Pelosi made the error here. She should have had a massive Dem display of outrage at the #RacistInChief and support for his targets.

This should have been a monster presser on the steps of Capital Hill

75. You have no idea what went in to the decision to do it this way.

It's likely this was coordinated very carefully with the leadership and the four Congresswomen wanted to do it this way.

83. I'm surprised so many still haven't figured out why trump does what he does

It keeps the focus off the real issues like Epstein, Mueller testimony etc.

Everyone needs to stop taking the bait and enabling his crap.

Too much last-word-itis is going around.

90. I don't think anyone says they should

What they do need to do is not fall into Trump's games and react wisely. They are unwittingly feeding the exact distractions trump wants to keep the focus off the real issues we should be talking about.

Everyone is talking about them instead of the kids at the border, Mueller's testimony, Epstein etc.. That's what he wants and he's a master at it.

I also think it's silly that so many people are referring to them as 'the Squad'.

That sounds like something out of pro wrestling.

I guess 'the 'four horsewomen' was already taken.
