Hollywood actors are chiming in on the firestorm between President Trump and AOC’s progressive “squad.”
Per FreeBeacon, Freshman Rep. Ilhan Omar (D., Minn.) on Saturday questioned the patriotism of American-born citizens, claiming she “probably love[s] this country more than anyone who is naturally born” in the United States.
Omar participated in a foreign policy panel at the liberal Netroots Nation conference in Philadelphia when she made her comment. Omar began her remarks by making light of her past anti-Semitic comments and the backlash that has resulted from them.
“Something that I get criticized for all the time. It’s not what you think, so don’t gasp,” Omar said, prompting laughter from the panel and audience.
“It is that I am anti-American because I criticize the United States,” Omar said. “I believe, as an immigrant, I probably love this country more than anyone that is naturally born and because I am ashamed of it continuing to live in its hypocrisy.”
Sunday, in a devastating tweets stream that has set the internet ablaze, President Trump eviscerated “progressive” Dem Congresswomen, which most are interpreting as Ilhan Omar and other members of AOC’s Squad including Rashida Tlaib.
So interesting to see “Progressive” Democrat Congresswomen, who originally came from countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe, the worst, most corrupt and inept anywhere in the world (if they even have a functioning government at all), now loudly……
….and viciously telling the people of the United States, the greatest and most powerful Nation on earth, how our government is to be run. Why don’t they go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came. Then come back and show us how….
….it is done. These places need your help badly, you can’t leave fast enough. I’m sure that Nancy Pelosi would be very happy to quickly work out free travel arrangements!
Now, Hollywood celebrities are chiming in on Twitter, and as usual, they are siding with the far left.
Dear @realDonaldTrump, Those young Congresswomen must go back to their countries of NY, MN, OH and continue working on the most corrupt, inept, total catastrophe of a government (a.k.a. present day U.S.A). BTW, do you have an app that tracks your lucid moments? xoBette #BeBette pic.twitter.com/efWU86Mds2

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez wasted little time in lashing back at Trump's racist tweets that clearly were meant for her and her allies in the House. – and AOC is 100% right to hit back – pelosi should take note- https://t.co/PPLHEkH9dW via @HuffPostPol

I know to call someone an ignorant racist is redundant. But with this President you have to add cruel and inhumane. Decent loving people are running out of words to describe this sick sad lying excuse for a human being.

I respect all your hard work. I respect your opinions, where you stand on policy.
When it comes to this you must stop talking about it and do something. https://t.co/T6HmDp4sUi

We have seen all this before. He’s using the oldest trick in the book. He sees unrest among Democrats, so he’s stirring the pot and throwing gas on the fire below. It’s purely in the interest of igniting chaos. All too often, we fall for it. Let’s see the bully for what he is. https://t.co/BVQJpj7MJk
