Baltimore Ambush: Trump forces Democrats to defend the indefensible, again

President Trump has done it again.

Just as he forced Democrats to defend the far-left 'Squad' in his unexpected ambush on Rep. Ilhan Omar and her pals, he's now forcing Democrats to own the urban shambles and filth that characterize one-party blue-city rule, putting all Democrats on their backfoot. That's what's behind his surprise Twitter assault that began with Rep. Elijah Cummings and his rat-infested Baltimore district, which pretty much came out of the blue.

Here's his unusually long string of street-fighting tweets, all of them calculated to hit Democrats where it hurts:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

What's he doing? Forcing a new narrative as election time kicks in, making Democrats have to address the reality that they have been in power for decades in one-party blue districts and cities, and they have left those districts smoking ruins, rat-infested hellholes, "places no human being would want to live," complete with live-action shots. The video of the Baltimore resident decrying the Democratic area's neglect is absolutely deadly.

Obviously, Trump's aim is to cut deep into the black vote, by laying the blame for the decayed urban cities many are forced to live in, on Democrats and forcing them to defend that record. Blacks are Democrats' political base, and they're also the prime victims of blue-city policies as well as all the neglect inherent in them as Democrats focus on saving the earth by banning plastic straws or else offering free health care to every illegal border crosser, so it's an unusually bold attack. 

How are Democrats going to defend themselves from this one? In one-party blue cities, states and districts, there's no one to blame but themselves. Trump's tactic is particularly ripe for propagation in solid-blue, shambling expensive California and already Trump is moving his attack onto Pelosi with his latest tweets.

Thus far, Democrats are fighting back by yelling 'racism.' It's a tired, weak weapon, grotesquely overused, and unlikely to rally black voters to Democrats, given the truth of Trump's tweets. What's more, it can't be employed by Pelosi, who's white. The issue and the narrative Trump is pushing out there is that all-blue cities are hellholes and they've been made hellholes because Democrats did it. 

This is political brutality cubed, a sign that Trump is a going to beformidable candidate to Democrats seeking to unhorse him. What it shows is Trump not only means to 'win' against his opponents, he intends to annihilate them. His election game is on and he's not playing beanbag. He using the same powerful tactics he was able use on Pelosi and her bickering 'squad' which had the effect of forcing Pelosi to defend the indefensible and making Rep. Ilhan Omar the face of the Democratic Party. Now he's making urban decay the second face of the Democratic Party. His poll numbers went up after the first one. Count on them going up again after this.
