I'm being dead serious. I personally think twitter should be banned for all politicians. but some of the new democrats in congress need to realize they were elected to represent a district, and not troll trump on twitter. it's embarrassing all around.

Fish rot from the head.

Who is the Twitterer and Chief right now?

Maybe he should set a better example. His predecessor knew better and avoided such behavior.

Muslim Congresswoman's District Reported to Be 'Terrorist Recruitment Capital' of US

FBI statistics reveal that Minnesota's 5th Congressional District, represented by Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), is the terrorism recruitment capital of the United States.

According to the FBI, more Somali American men and boys from this district have joined, or have attempted to join, a foreign terror organization in the last 12 years than any other community in the US.

"Forty-five Somalis left to join the ranks of either the Somalia-based Islamic insurgency al-Shabab, or the Iraq- and Syria-based ISIS combined,"

In 2018, a dozen more Somalis were arrested, accused of planning to leave the US to join ISIS.

Ilhan's district is a very insular ethnic and religious community that has not fully assimilated into American society.

"For over a decade, Islamist terror groups have been able to recruit from Minnesota. This is, in part, because Minnesota has a large Muslim population compared to other parts of the US," Robin Simcox, a terrorism and national security expert at The Heritage Foundation, told Fox News.

Federal authorities say they are "highly concerned" about this district's ties to international terrorism. "We are very conscious that there may still be fertile ground for that, and that is could re-start at any time,"

This is counterproductive. She's the gift that keeps on giving. Replacement? Likely not so much.

It's nice that the Republican party is bringing some fresh new faces into its criminal enterprise. She'll fit right in.
There are tons of sleazeball/criminal politicians in both parties, no doubt.
