No harm in trying

This story broke on CNN a couple hours ago.

The sources said the Warren moment came up in the context of the Trump’s impromptu analysis of the state of the Democratic Party. Trump made his comments in what appeared to be a reference to Warren’s criticism of Attorney General Jeff Sessions during his confirmation process.

Now we know. Donald did in fact take note of Sen. Warren’s King-clubbing of Jeff Sessions, the refurbished racist and newly minted attorney general.

President Donald Trump taunted Democrats by telling them “Pocahontas is now the face of your party” — his insult of choice for Sen. Elizabeth Warren — during a meeting with senators earlier this week, sources told CNN.

Imagine we could get ‘Senators’ Lewis and Cummings to troll him like Senator Warren – maybe with a heartfelt exhortation not to hurt white folks from an actual white person. Capitol Testudine McConnell could silence the pair with a Jim Crow parliamentary faceslap, then Lindsay Graham could go on Fox News and regret the time was long past only telling the two to shut up. And if that’s what it takes to get Donald to drop an “Amos n’ Andy” bomb on all of us, I’m good.
