It’s like clockwork.

President Donald Trump tweets out criticisms of someone or something. Democrats hop on he Twitter machine and left-wing cable news networks to denounce his comments and defend the object of his ire.

It’s a deliberate strategy on Trump’s part. He designs it to get liberals on record, taking positions on public figures or issues that are unpopular with most mainstream Americans. Democrats take the bait almost every time.

As Professor Jacobson noted last night

My takeaway from glimpses of the fighting is that Trump has Democrats defending and supporting:

1. The anti-Semites and socialists of The Squad.

2. Race hustler, shakedown artist, and hoaxster Al Sharpton.

and

3. Politicians whose malfeasance and neglect created abysmal living conditions for poor blacks in Baltimore.

A person doesn’t have to believe Trump is playing 4D chess with Democrats to admit that it was a masterstroke on his part to attack Al Sharpton’s visit to Baltimore in the aftermath of the President’s criticisms of the city:

Unironically, race hustler Sharpton accused the President of having “a particular venom for blacks and people of color:”

It’s not true that Trump only uses the word “infested” when it comes to “blacks and people of color. What is true is that Sharpton is the absolute last person on earth who should be lecturing anyone anywhere when it comes to language that targets a specific race, and having “a particular venom” for a group of people:

Nevertheless, Sharpton pretended throughout the day Monday that he was holding the higher moral ground. And to back it up, several Democratic presidential candidates rushed to social media to kiss Sharpton’s ring:

Democrats are defending a racist, anti-Semitic race hoaxster like Sharpton to own conservatives and Trump. Who’d have guessed?

Twitter users were quick to react, reminding the world of just what a low-life and detestable person the candidates were standing up for:

MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough, who was practically plumping Trump’s pillow during interviews back in 2016, took a swipe at those who reminded him of how as a Congressman he once pushed in 2000 to officially condemn Sharpton (who is also an MSNBC show host) as a matter of Congressional record:

Predictably, Scarborough made the issue personal even though the more significant issue at hand is that Sharpton has never once apologized publicly for nor asked for the public’s forgiveness for:

  • Racism and anti-Semitism
  • His deliberate fanning of those flames for personal gain
  • His racial shakedowns
  • The Tawana Brawley rape hoax
  • The Freddie’s Fashion Mart massacre
  • The Crown Heights riots

And the reason he hasn’t asked for forgiveness for any of it is that he doesn’t think he’s done anything wrong.

On top of that, Democrats and their media enablers have been very successful at hiding the most controversial aspects of Sharpton’s past from public view. DC Examiner executive editor Seth Mandel explained last month, thanks in large part to President Obama and de Blasio, Sharpton is viewed as a kingmaker of sorts in Democratic circles for the black vote in spite of his past.

Democrats will be taking the debate stage over the next two nights in Detroit. If the moderators ask about the Trump-Sharpton feud, it will be interesting to see the pretzel logic candidates like Sens. Kamala Harris and Cory Booker use to explain why it’s wrong for Joe Biden to praise being able to work with segregationist Senators but right for them to praise and defend an unapologetic racist anti-Semite like Sharpton.
