Comparing Ilian Omar to MLK is perhaps the greatest insult to MLK's memory in modern times. It's about as offensive as the "Squad" comparing Israel to the Nazis.
MLK would never told anyone to leave their country.

Before we had a dictator regime, one of the entire points of America was the right to criticize the government.

Who exactly is Trump referring to when he bellows "if they don't like the way we run the country..." blah, blah from another country - may not criticize.

So who is "we," because the majority of "us" does not like the way he is running the country.

Ubiquitous bumper sticker from the 1960s. Trump has added another epithet to his narcissistic personality, "jingo jerk."

Right - to some degree - but remember that it was often Union Hard Hats doing so.....which makes it just a little different....

For Trump to engage in this behavior...when he is arguable the least ethical or moral POTUS in history...is the height of hypocrisy. One can only imagine this country if we didn't have "much better people" than Trump.

MLK didn't spend his days calling 1/2 of America racist and most of the other disgusting things that Omar has said about the people of the USA.
