Somebody is clearly VERY threatened by the power of a few very strong women!
Donald Trump is having a more controversial 24-hour period than is normal even for him right now after he launched into a blatantly racist tirade on several United States Congresswoman through his official Twitter account on Sunday.
And while we’re all pretty much used to Trump saying monumentally dumb s**t by now, this one crossed WAY beyond that into the level of shockingly racist (even for him) and unbelievably vicious.
It all started seemingly out of nowhere early Sunday morning; it’s not clear what exactly pushed the orange buffoon over the edge; perhaps he was watching a segment on Fox News about the Congresswomen, or something.
Trump’s Racist Tweets
Nevertheless, he fired off a series of tweets calling out unnamed “‘Progressive’ Democrat Congresswomen,” who he for some reason alleged came from other countries. Which by the way, only one woman in Congress — Rep. Ilhan Omar from Minnesota — was born outside the United States, and she is (obviously) a full-fledged American citizen.
Yet, here’s Donnie going after the REALLY racist vote just blatantly, and out in the open (below):
As you likely did, the vast majority of people took these unnamed attacks to be going after not just Rep. Omar, but also Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.), and Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-Mass.) — all four of whom have been extremely critical of the awful job the President is doing in his first term.
And, to repeat it AGAIN, only Rep. Omar was born outside the U.S. — so what’s up with telling multiple Congresswomen (?!) to leave the country?? Even going after Omar alone on this line of attack is, of course, viciously bigoted, but Trump decided to broaden the brush and be not just a racist… but also, a moron! What countries would these other women even go back to, Donnie?!
Very quickly, the responses poured in as “Racist in Chief” trended all day Sunday on Twitter with thousands and thousands of people calling out The Donald for his absurdly over-the-top attack.
And Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi — the only woman actually named in the tweet thread — quickly responded with her own retort about Trump’s tirade (below):
Thankfully, she was far from the only one who stood up for the Congresswomen, as celebrities, other politicians, public figures, and regular, everyday Americans all came together to chastise Trump for his bigotry.
The Women Respond
Of course, the four Congresswomen stood up for themselves, too — and each lashed out at Trump over his insane comments, starting with Rep. Ocasio-Cortez (below):
Can’t say it any better than that!!
Rep. Tlaib brought her A-game, too (below):
While Rep. Pressley called Trump’s tweet-storm out for exactly what it was (below):
Say it louder for the people in the back!!!
Rep. Omar also didn’t mince words (below) when it came to taking Trump down a peg (or ten):
He Can’t Help Himself…
Pretty predictably, Trump got back on his racist horse later on Sunday afternoon, tweeting more bull s**t about “disgusting language” and other perceived slights (below):
And, imagine this, he couldn’t help himself on Monday morning, either.
Here’s Donnie tweeting SOME MORE about the Congresswomen, because nothing says he’s not bothered by four powerful women better than tweeting about them non-stop, all the time, forever (below):
These women are living rent-free in Donald’s head!
Not sure the actually want to be there — ha! — but they’re running circles in his little pea brain this week!
“Language Of White Supremacists”
Thankfully, just hours ago, Rep. Ocasio-Cortez dropped another truth bomb of her own on Twitter, and really boiled this entire episode down to what it is (below):
Call it what it is: our President is racist AND xenophobic.
Period, full stop. Nothin’ else to say!!!
