Morning - President - Attacks - Colleagues - Pelosi

“This morning, the President doubled down on his attacks on our four colleagues suggesting they apologize to him,” Pelosi wrote to House Democrats. “Let me be clear, our caucus will continue to forcefully respond to these disgusting attacks.”

“The House cannot allow the president’s characterization of immigrants to our country to stand. Our Republican colleagues must join us in condemning the president’s xenophobic tweets,” Pelosi wrote.

Matter - Democrats - Barroom - Brawl - Caucus

That would have been a no-brainer no matter what. It’ll bring Democrats together after a barroom brawl within the caucus that went on for days and force Republicans to choose whether to condemn Trump’s tweets or side with him on a “leave the country” solution to Ilhan Omar and other dark-skinned progressive critics of U.S. policy. Liberals in the media have spent the past 30 hours demanding that Republicans say which of those positions they hold. Pelosi has the power to actually force them to say, so she will. What makes a floor vote in this case especially obligatory, though, is the uproar that followed a few months ago after Omar’s dual-loyalty shot at American supporters of Israel. At the time Republicans and some Democrats demanded a resolution denouncing her by name, since that was her second offense. (She had previously gurgled about AIPAC and “the Benjamins” influencing U.S. policy towards Israel, remember.) But the left revolted and Pelosi ultimately caved, watering down the resolution until it became a condemnation of anti-semitism so pedestrian that Omar herself voted for it. With the GOP having given her so much grief about that resolution, it was a cinch Pelosi would pay them back with a resolution aimed at Trump now.
