Trump says says that the Democratic Party has been taken over by the radical left, by John Hinderaker. From a press conference today:
His point was that Pelosi is no longer at the wheel, as the Squad and other far leftists are now driving the Democratic Party. That would have been obvious to anyone who listened to the exchange. But Democratic Party reporters played dumb, pretending to think that Trump had literally said that Pelosi had somehow lost her position as Speaker.
We have seen this over and over again: Trump will say something perfectly sensible that would be understood by any person of normal intelligence, but Democratic Party reporters and spokesmen willfully pretend to misunderstand him, and then attack the faux interpretation that was theirs alone.
That is a depressing phenomenon, but the bright spot is that if this is the best the Democrats can do after Trump spent more than an hour with the press, while Nancy Pelosi and Joe Biden both refused to take any questions, the Democrats are in trouble.
