    Weird how she 'hates' the country so much but goes into politics and tries to affect change legally and legitimately through our cherished system of Constitutional government. Contrast that with say, the MAGA bomber who sent bombs to various members of government.

    The amount of word gymnastics going on in this thread is comical

    Republican logic: If she hates this country she should leave it.

    Also Republican logic: These refugees leaving countries that they hate need to turn around and go back

    They don’t hate America. They disagree with its policies and practices. As I do. As you do. The difference is that you would tell Us citizens from different places to leave. I would not. “Send them back” has been a long standing racist trope. Said about the Irish. Was a reaction to the civil rights movement by blacks on the 1960s and early 1970s. From people who argued that they should leave if they don’t like America for what it is. And called blacks racist names. And wanted to preserve the heritage of segregation. The era in which Trump came of age. And, now, Trump’s supporters have adopted is as acceptable. Deplorable. The squad’s policies are easily addressed. Their ancestral countries or Talib’s country of birth have no relevance. Really, the right is answering the dog whistle.

    Given Trump's track record, there's an excellent chance this is as foundationless as most of the stuff that comes out of his mouth. Or fingers.

    I think I’ve already said repeatedly, that this is if the comments were exclusively directed at Omar, which we know that they weren’t...

    The fact that they were incorrectly directed at AOC, Pressley, and Tlaib makes them indefensible...

    Well that’s the condition where I’m making the argument...

    It’s simply unjustifiable when you lump in AOC, Pressley, and Tlaib...

    No, but it would be strange if a person who hated the country to its core wanted to legitimize it by participating in its institutions, particularly mainstream electoral politics.

    Nothing for at least 2 more years. Absolutely nothing. It's why 80% of this country pays it no attention and go on with their lives.

    What Trump is presenting to you and his other supporters is his hateful perspective of Omar, what he'd like you to believe. Rather than explore further, you take what he tells you as truth. It is the truth that will stop Trump but right now his supporters want somewhere to aim their anger and distrust, their hate of liberals. Trump has your number and y'all don't even realize that.

    You don't think Trump would react to his supporters criticism? Interesting

    Libbie logic...anything goes and we absolutely abhor our history, so much so that we must erase it.

    You know what? Perhaps it would. Now just need to get a million fringe political fanatics to change their views. Can't be that hard. lol.

    I try not to get emotional about things I can't control.

    I must admit....I don't exactly hate liberals, but you could say I don't regularly seek them out as social companions.

    No, that's your own logic again.

    Her quotes represent a person quite the opposite of who Trump tries to portray her as. There is little doubt she loves and appreciates this country from those quotes.
