Democrats are having such a field day with President Donald Trump’s administration — winning, chip by chip, post-Charlottesville, a public relations battle that paints this White House in the most vulgar and ugliest of terms — they’re making a fundraising pitch off their success.

Come on, Republicans. Come on, White House. Are you really going to let the left get by with this?

“Two white nationalists down,” the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee tweeted, alongside a blacked-out photo of Steve Bannon and Sebastian Gorka, the latest casualties of the Trump administration. Then, referring to the middle photo of Stephen Miller, the tweeted message went on: “One to go. We can do this.”

What’s particularly striking about the DCCC’s campaign of slur is that A) it’s founded on zero evidence and B) it’s still working.

It can’t be denied that Bannon, the guy credited with keeping Trump on the populist track that won him the White House in the first place, and Gorka, the guy who didn’t shy from calling an Islamic terrorist rat an Islamic terrorist rat, are gone.

It also can’t be denied that whatever reasons the pair left — whether it was due to Trump’s hiring of globalists who didn’t want to work with Bannon and Gorka, and versa, or due to the left’s steady drumbeat for the two heads on a plate — that Dems are taking credit for the departures.

“Sebastian Gorka,” tweeted Democratic Rep. Steve Cohen, “a fiery nationalist and Bannon ally, abruptly exits White House. 2 down and 1 to go. Stephen Miller!”

It’s become the Dems’ talking point — the Dems’ successes.

Is this really what Republicans want — to stand there on Capitol Hill with clear majorities in the House, the Senate and the White House, yet appear the weaker of the two parties? The losers?

Miller’s the next in Democratic-Deep State firing line. One can only imagine how emboldened the left will become if he’s booted or resigns as well.
