Summary

Yet another reason to be angry at President Trump: He is forcing me — and every other American who is not a racist — to defend the most left-wing members of Congress. I am concerned that the willingness of Ocasio-Cortez and other firebrands to embrace the “socialist” label and to call for shutting down (rather than reforming) Immigration and Customs Enforcement plays right into Trump’s hands.Their readiness to imply that anyone who disagrees with them is a tool of corporate interests or even a racist is name-calling that has no place in our politics: Ocasio-Cortez complained that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) is “singling out … newly elected women of color,” and Chakrabarti (who acts like a member of Congress, not a congressional staffer), even more outrageously, compared moderate Democrats to Southern segregationists from the 1940s. I have significant differences with Pressley, Tlaib, Ocasio-Cortez and Omar — perhaps even greater differences on the issues than I have with the president — but they are better Americans than Trump.Read more:Greg Sargent: Trump just denied his attacks are racist.
