Make no mistake about it. This "squad" consists of folks who are wrong on policy. But they are U.S. citizens and should be criticized for their views, not who they are as people. We should welcome people to this country legally.
Yes, it takes courage these days for a Republican to stand up and be counted among those who find this type of rhetoric to be a disgrace for the country. The state of their respective nations of origin for these four women representatives and their families are irrelevant with regards to their individual political beliefs or capabilities.

Debate and fight what they are selling, not resort to personal attacks. It just shows it is the weakest argument. It resonates with people, because people resort to these attacks as fall backs when they are losing an argument or are in the wrong.

Personal attacks on someones being vs their actions should never be in Politics, but it always is. At least for me that pushes me away. For some it attracts.
That's a principled argument against the Tweets. Calling them racist is a bold face lie not supported by the facts in evidence.

Anyone who doesn't think so is ignorant, in my opinion. Not worth arguing the point if you don't comprehend - it's like arguing with White Supremacists. Their minds can't ever be changed to the day they die.

So you admit that it not racist but ignorant, Ill buy that.

There was zero wrong with what he said.
You're all out WRONG. Trump strongly implied congresswomen against him should go back to the country they came from to fix them. Only one congresswoman is foreign born. If he wasn't being racist, he was sure being ignorant. But Trump wrongly said his father was born in Germany, so I guess Trump lovers demand we forgive him every time he is wrong about something.

Republican's dropped the ball on not condemning Trump

Actually it shows they have grown some balls under Trump's outstanding American first admin.

By the way, just what is a racist?
You are so all out wrong that it's pitiful.

So? Trump supporters will say he was wrong back then and now forgiven, just like they have forgiven Trump for being registered as a Democrat before. When you love somebody, you can forgive him or her a lot for being wrong.

Here is a video (so it can't be claimed as "fake news") of Donald Trump, a married man, patting PYT no the butt.

Now, after watching this video, I expect most of the Trump supporters to dismiss it, saying it's "harmless" and more of an "atta boy" butt pat than a sexual one. If that's your opinion, that's fine.

But the hypocrisy needs to be addressed. Because if that were Obama, Schumer, or any married democrat, the same republicans who didn't care about a married Trump doing what he did in the video below would be up in arms if a married democrat were on video patting a young woman on the butt.
