Donald Trump has ignited an all-out war between himself, the “Squad,” the Democratic party, and pretty much every decent American after he started what we can only guess is the foundation of his 2020 reelection campaign with a series of racist tweets aimed at four Congresswomen of color.
Donald first took to Twitter to tell the women to “go back where they came from” if they didn’t like the way he is doing things in this country now — evidently completely ignorant or at the very least completely uncaring about the fact that 3 out of 4 of the Congresswomen he targeted were born right here in America and the fourth, Rep. Ilhan Omar has been a US citizen for longer than Donald’s wife Melania.
Since he tweeted out his racism-charged ambush against the women, Trump has been riding high on the popularity it’s garnered him with his biggest base — racist, right-wing nuts and white nationalists.
He doubled down on his hateful, racism-filled rhetoric in his “Made in America” speech, in which he also attacked House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, in a press gaggle at the White House before he departed for him most recent rally, and again at his rally in Greenville, North Carolina where he fired up his supporters enough to spur them into hateful chants of “send her back” in reference to Rep. Omar.
While the majority of Americans are quickly coming to realize, if by some chance they hadn’t already, how awful and disgusting this man truly is, those still left on his side are scrambling like rats to excuse his behavior for the umpteenth time.
Trump’s daughter-in-law, Lara Trump went on Fox News today in an attempt to smooth things over and distance the president from the racist chants he himself ignited at his rally.
“He wasn’t the one that was chanting it… the crowd themselves started chanting this. And it wasn’t the whole crowd, it was a couple of people right there in the front. But he didn’t say it,” Lara replied to the Fox News host after he questioned her on the matter.
And this was after Lara herself took to the stage at Donald’s rally and personally reiterated his “just leave” bullshit:

“If you don’t love our country, the president said it: You can leave.”

You know, Charles Manson didn’t kill anyone with his own two hands, either. But look at what he made his followers do for him.
