Trump Brutally Mocked For Tweet Appealing To 'Suburban Housewives'

President Donald Trump ’s decision to reach out to a particular demographic may have backfired if reactions to his tweet are any indication.


On Thursday, the president retweeted   a New York Post editorial   criticizing presumptive Democratic nominee   Joe Biden ’s plan to   build more high-density affordable housing in suburban areas.

The president’s retweet came with a comment suggesting that the “Suburban Housewives of America” read the article to learn how the former vice president planned to destroy American neighborhoods.



The Suburban Housewives of America must read this article. Biden will destroy your neighborhood and your American Dream. I will preserve it, and make it even better!   https://t.co/1NzbR57Oe6 — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump)   July 23, 2020


But the president’s attempt at appealing to suburban women didn’t work out as he might have expected, possibly because many people found the reference to “housewives” to be anachronistic at best.



Oh damn. Trump is going to win the 1956 presidential election.   https://t.co/Lzu9qn5SRB — Thor Benson (@thor_benson)   July 23, 2020

“Suburban women” probably would have worked a bit better   https://t.co/4OKYioliyi — Maggie Haberman (@maggieNYT)   July 23, 2020




Sir, "Suburban HOUSEWIVES?" Do you mean mothers? Lawyers? Doctors? Architects? Scientists? Teachers? Policewomen? Their "American Dream," sir, is to get rid of you.   https://t.co/Uo0TmIGJCo — E. Jean Carroll (@ejeancarroll)   July 23, 2020





A couple of people noted the subtext to Trump’s appeal to “suburban housewives.”



The invocation of "suburban housewives" gets at a really good point   @alexburnsNYT   made the other day about how Trump still seems to view suburbs as being primarily occupied by white people who were recently removed from the "white flight" of the 1950s/60s   https://t.co/CRk681H0z8   https://t.co/fmCsYo5QVS — Grace Panetta (@grace_panetta)   July 23, 2020




Come for the condescending command to "Suburban Housewives of America," stay for the complaints in this   @nypost   piece about how awful it was that an Obama-era anti discrimination rule made it so "towns had to make it possible for low-income minorities to choose suburban living."   https://t.co/3gBTrAcg5L — Andrew Feinberg (@AndrewFeinberg)   July 23, 2020


And some people were skeptical that Trump’s tweet would do what he intended.



What percentage of these suburban housewives do you suppose like hearing themselves described as "housewives?"   https://t.co/UfanWrSCCI — Ted Mann (@TMannWSJ)   July 23, 2020




As we learned in our first Swing State Story, the suburban housewives of Virginia were part of turning that purple state a little bluer   https://t.co/ZL9EydqwcD   https://t.co/RI4LDDHqam — Emily Tamkin (@emilyctamkin)   July 23, 2020


Many suburban moms were quick to clap back at the president.



I'm a mom of 3 children.
I live in the suburbs.
I work full time.
I bust my ass for my kids.
If you call me a "suburban housewife” I will knee you in the fucking groin.

Raise your hand if you are a woman living in the suburbs and you are voting for   @JoeBiden .

I am the President of the Suburban Housewives of America and our message to you is this:

"Pack your bags, you lying sack of fecal matter. You're fired."

They should have asked trump what year it is during his cognition test. He would have said 1962.

CNN's Don Lemon took a cognition test on live TV to show how easy it was....he flunked lol

If you're referring to the segment on youtube with Lemon and Cuomo, it's clear it went right over your head. Do you have a link to an article where you saw this or did you just hear this on talk radio ?

MEH!

Even if your allegation is true-- who cares?

Trump is president-- since he's "mentally challenged"-- it matters! He's the moron with (literally) his fingeron the nuclear weapons-- not some newscaster.

Saw it live on CNN's Tonight With Don Lemon. Of course, as it is every night Coumo says "love you Don Lemon" Lemon replies " Love you to" LOL these guys have a man crush on each other.jrSmiley_15_smiley_image.gif

Obviously you don't watch Don Lemon, not a night goes by without Coumo saying "I love you Don Lemon" or " I love you D.Lemon" Lemon always replies "love you to"

What did you see that makes you think Lemon failed the test ? That he said a rhinoceros was a hippo ?

Yup, his excuse was he was looking at the picture backwards. hippos don't have horns.
