The 4 Congress women in question donít deserve to be representatives in our national government. This is especially true of Omar. Who in the world thinks that any of them stand for American values?

The Democrat support of illegal immigrants in the United States is incomprehensible and anti-American.
I don't like them either, but I don't see how you or I feel about them matters.

The only people whose opinions matter on that issue belong to the people eligible to vote in their districts, and all four of them got elected.

Trump should let it go.

He shouldn't engage in what is known as 'punching down'.

He's the President.

These idiots don’t realize that by over using the word racist it loses its power. It’s like how some black people call each other the n word.... it loses its power.

Doubling down is not helpful, just dizzying.
Cut the crap about "divide." You and AOC and Ilhan Omar are as divisive as anyone. You attack people who you don't like and who you disagree with, same as Trump or anyone on the right. So spare us the sanctimony.

Twitter? You do know how partisan they are to the left, don't you?

Twitter is mostly bots and fake accounts, from what I've heard. Z list celebs buy them to pad their accounts.

He never said a specific race. He said congresswomen. Kept it very general until his press conference today. I know that 1 of the 4 was born outside of the US.

I read everything...both sides, then go from there.
Once again...you never showed me in that collection of 3 tweets where he went full on racist.



haha...No he didn't. If he thinks something is a sh!thole, he would say it.





See, thats the beautiful thing. I'm not. The media is the master of gaslighters. It really is amazing when you don't listen to the media, listen to things in their entirety on your own. Views change.
That carny grifter POTUS has you thinking the news media cannot be trusted and he can.

The latter being the scary part.

It is fine to be critical of all politicians.

It's not okay for the POTUS to say racist and/or xenophobic things about anyone, much less the elected members of Congress.

Presidents are supposed to be leaders of the ENTIRE country... not just their "base."

I rarely discuss this, but my IQ is quite high.

So is my knowledge of the Constitution and the political process... I was majoring in Pol Sci before I began my History MA.

The only reason the word "racist" doesn't matter to a good chunk of Trump supporters is because they are.

Racist, that is.

And, they don't care if they are.

I don't think he should be telling citizens to "go back where they came from" but telling a POC that is a bit different than being a white guy and telling a white person that.

I am not surprised you don't see the difference, though.
