Reps. Omar, Pressley, Ocasio-Cortez and Tlaib respond to Trump’s comments


EMPATHY, THE KBAGS, THE INTEGRITY, THAT THAT OFFICE REQUIRES AND THAT THE AMERICAN PEOPLE DESERVE. THAT BEING SAID, I ENCOURAGE THE AMERICAN PEOPLE AND ALL OF US IN THIS ROOM AND BEYOND TO NOT TAKE THE BAIT. THIS IS A DISRUPTIVE DISTRACTION FROM THE ISSUES OF CARE, CONCERN, AND CONSEQUENCE TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE, THAT WE WERE SENT HERE WITH A DECISIVE MANDATE FROM OUR CONSTITUENTS TO WORK ON. EVERYTHING FROM RECRUISE DOOUS REDUCING THE COST OF PRESCRIPTION DRUGS. TO ENSURING THE AMERICAN PEOPLE HAVE MORE THAN HEALTH INSURANCE, BUT HEALTH CARE. MORE RECENTLY, THANKS TO THE PARTY OF CHAIRMAN ELIJAH CUMMINGS AND THE ADVOCACY OF MYSELF AND A COALITION OF ADVOCATES I’VE WORKED WITH FOR DECADES, WE HELD THE FIRST HEARING ON CHILDHOOD TRAUMA. AND IN SITTING IN THAT HEARING, AS WE HEARD ABOUT THE MANY MANIFESTATIONS AND ITERATIONS OF CHILDHOOD TRAUMA, IN THE WAKE OF THE PUBLIC HEALTH CISIS AND EPIDEMIC THAT HAS GONE VIOLENT, IN THE WAKE OF PTSD, IN THE WAKE OF THOSE BATTLING SUBSTANCE ABUSE DISORDER AND A HOST OF OTHER THINGS, IT WAS IMPOSSIBLE NOT TO THINK OF THE TRAUMA THAT IS BEING INFLICTED UPON CHILDREN EVERY DAY AT OUR BORDER. AT THE END OF THE DAY, IF WE IMPROVE THE CONDITIONS OF CHILDREN IN A CAGE, THEY ARE STILL IN A CAGE. AND WE ARE VISCERALLY, VIGOROUSLY, AND FUNDAMENTALLY OPPOSED TO THE CRIMINALIZING, THE VILIFYING, THE MASS DETENTION AND DEPORTATION, OF MIGRANT FAMILIES WHO ARE SIMPLY DOING WHAT IS THEIR LEGAL, HUMAN RIGHT, AND THAT IS TO SEEK ASYLUM. IN A TRADITION OF WHO WE SAY WE ARE AS A COUNTRY, A BEACON OF LIGHT AND HOPE AND OF REFUGE. THIS IS SIMPLY A DISRUPTION AND A DISTRACTION FROM THE CALLOUS, CHAOTIC, AND CORRUPT CULTURE OF THIS ADMINISTRATION ALL THE WAY DOWN. WE WANT TO GET BACK TO THE BUSINESS OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE AND WHY WE WERE SENT HERE, REDUCING THE COST OF PRESCRIPTION DRUGS, ADDRESSING THE PUBLIC HEALTH CRISIS AND EPIDEMIC THAT IS GUN VIOLENCE, ADDRESSING THE RACIAL WEALTH GAP, AND, YES, MAKING SURE THAT FAMILIES STAY TOGETHER. I ALSO WOULD LIKE TO JUST UNDERSCORE THE FACT THAT DESPITE THE OCCUPANT OF THE WHITE HOUSE’S ATTEMPT TO MARGINALIZE US AND TO SILENCE US, PLEASE KNOW THAT WE ARE MORE THAN FOUR PEOPLE. WE RAN ON A MANDATE TO ADVOCATE FOR AND TO REPRESENT THOSE IGNORED, LEFT OUT, AND LEFT BEHIND. OUR SQUAD IS BIG. OUR SQUAD INCLUDES ANY PERSON COMMITTED TO BUILDING A MORE EQUITABLE AND JUST WORLD. AND THAT IS THE WORK THAT WE WANT TO GET BACK TO. AND GIVEN THE SIZE OF THIS SQUAD AND THIS GREAT NATION, WE CANNOT, WE WILL NOT, BE SILENCED. AND NOW I’LL INVITE REPRESENTATIVE OMAR TO OFFER A FEW WORDS AS WELL.>>THANK YOU, CONGRESSWOMAN, AYANNA PRESSLEY. THIS COUNTRY WAS FOUNDED ON THE RADICAL IDEA THAT WE ARE CREATED EQUAL AND ENDOWED BY OUR CREATOR WITH INALIENABLE RIGHTS. YES, WE HAVE A LONG WAY BEFORE WE FULLY LIVE UP TO THOSE VALUES. IT IS FOR THIS REASON, PRECISELY, THAT WE HAVE TO TAKE ACTION WHEN A PRESIDENT IS OPENLY VIOLATING THE OATH HE TOOK TO THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES AND THE CORE VALUES WE ASPIRE TO. AS MARTIN LUTHER KING SAID, ALL WE SAY TO AMERICA IS BE TRUE TO WHAT YOU SAY ON PAPER. I BELIEVE THIS IS A PIVOTAL MOMENT IN OUR COUNTRY. THE EYES OF HISTORY IS WATCHING US. RIGHT NOW, THE PRESIDENT IS CARRYING OUT MASS DEPORTATIONS, RAIDS ACROSS THIS COUNTRY, IN EACH ONE OF OUR DISTRICTS. RIGHT NOW, THE PRESIDENT IS COMMITTING HUMAN RIGHTS ABUSES AT THE BORDER, KEEPING CHILDREN IN CAGES AND HAVING HUMAN BEINGS DRINKING OUT OF TOILETS. THIS PRESIDENT, WHO HAS BEEN CREDIBLY ACCUSED OF COMMITTING MULTIPLE CRIMES, INCLUDING COLLUDING WITH FOREIGN GOVERNMENTS WHO INTERFERE WITH OUR ELECTION, THIS IS A PRESIDENT WHO HAS OVERSEEN THE MOST CORRUPT ADMINISTRATION IN OUR HISTORY AND PURSUED AN AGENDA TO ALLOW MILLIONS OF AMERICANS TO DIE FROM A LACK OF HEALTH CARE WHILE HE TRANSFERRED MILLIONS OF DOLLARS IN TAX CUTS TO CORPORATIONS. THIS IS A PRESIDENT WHO HAS SAID GRAB WOMEN BY THE PUSSY. THIS IS A PRESIDENT WHO’S CALLED BLACK ATHLETES SONS OF BITCHES. THIS IS A PRESIDENT WHO HAS CALLED BLACK PEOPLE WHO COME FROM BLACK AND BROWN COUNTRIES SHITHOLES. THIS IS A PRESIDENT WHO HAS EQUATED NEO NAZIS WITH THOSE WHO PROTEST AGAINST THEM IN CHARLOTTESVILLE. THIS IS A PRESIDENT WHO HAS OPENLY VIOLATED THE VERY VALUE OUR COUNTRY ASPIRES TO UPHOLD. EQUALITY UNDER THE LAW, RELIGIOUS LIBERTY, EQUAL PROTECTIONS, AND PROTECTION FROM PERSECUTION. AND TO DISTRACT FROM THAT, HE’S LAUNCHING A BLATANTLY RACIST ATTACK ON FOUR DULY ELECTED MEMBERS OF THE UNITED STATES HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES, ALL OF WHOM ARE WOMEN OF COLOR. THIS IS THE AGENDA OF WHITE NATIONALISTS. WHETHER IT IS HAPPENING IN CHAT ROOMS, OR IT’S HAPPENING ON NATIONAL TV, AND NOW IT’S REACHED THE WHITE HOUSE GARDEN. HE WOULD LOVE NOTHING MORE THAN TO DIVIDE OUR COUNTRY BASED ON RACE, RELIGION, GENDER, ORIENTATION, OR IMMIGRATION STATUS, BECAUSE THIS IS THE ONLY WAY HE KNOWS HE CAN PREVENT THE SOLIDARITY OF US WORKING TOGETHER ACROSS ALL OF OUR DIFFERENCES. THE ONLY WAY TO PREVENT US CONFRONTING THE PROBLEMS OUR COUNTRY IS FACING. WHETHER IT IS HEALTH CARE, CLIMATE CHANGE, STUDENT DEBT, OR OUR ENDLESS WARS. THIS IS HIS PLAN TO PIT US AGAIN ONE ANOTHER. THIS IS HOW HE CAN CONTINUE TO ENRICH HIS FRIENDS AND DISTRACT US FROM THE DETRIMENTAL POLICIES THAT HIS ADMINISTRATION IS PUSHING FORTH. SO WE CAN EITHER CONTINUE TO ENABLE THIS PRESIDENT AND REPORT ON THE BILE OF GARBAGE THAT COMES OUT OF HIS MOUTH, OR WE CAN HOLD HIM ACCOUNTABLE TO HIS CRIMES. HE CAN CONTINUE TO TURN A BLIND EYE TO THE MULTIPLE CRIMES HE’S ACCUSED OF. WE CAN STAND WHILE HE VIOLATES THESE PEOPLE’S BASIC HUMAN RIGHTS AND THE RESPONSIBILITY — THE RESPONSIBILITY THAT HIS ADMINISTRATION HAS FOR THE DEATHS OF CHILDREN ON OUR BORDER. OR WE CAN TAKE ACTION. I HAVE NOT MADE IMPEACHMENT CENTRAL TO MY ELECTION OR MY TENURE, BUT SINCE THE DAY THAT I’VE GOTTEN ELECTED, I SAID TO PEOPLE, IT IS NOT IF HE WILL BE IMPEACHED BUT WHEN. SO IT IS TIME FOR US TO STOP ALLOWING THIS PRESIDENT TO MAKE A MOCKERY OUT OF OUR CONSTITUTION. IT’S TIME FOR US TO IMPEACH THIS PRESIDENT. SO NOW WE’RE GOING TO HAVE ALEXANDRIA OCASIO — CONGRESSWOMAN ALEXANDRIA OCASIO-CORTEZ.>>GOOD AFTERNOON, EVERYONE. I’LL TRY TO KEEP THINGS AS BRIEF AND JUST AS I CAN. WHO KNOWS WHEN I GET ON A ROLL, RIGHT? WHEN I WAS A LITTLE GIRL, MY FATHER TOOK ME TO THE REFLECTING POOL HERE. WE WERE ON A ROAD TRIP FROM NEW YORK TO FLORIDA TO VISIT FAMILY. AND I TOLD THIS STORY BEFORE, BUT IT WAS MY FIRST TIME EVER VISITING WASHINGTON, D.C., AND IT WAS MY ONLY TIME VISITING WASHINGTON, D.C., FOR YEARS, IF NOT DECADES. AND HE RESTED ME ON THE SIDE OF THE REFLECTING POOL AND HAD MY TOES DIPPED IN THE WATER. HE HAD ME LOOK AT THE WASHINGTON MONUMENT. HAD ME LOOK AT THE CAPITOL. HAD ME LOOK AT THE ENTIRETY OF THE CAPITOL OF OUR GREAT COUNTRY. HE LOOKED AT EVERYTHING AND HE POINTED TO ALL OF IT AND HE SAID, THIS BELONGS TO ALL OF US. THIS BELONGS TO YOU AND IT BELONGS TO ME. AND FOR THE FIRST NOTE THAT I WANT TO TELL CHILDREN ACROSS THIS COUNTRY IS THAT NO MATTER WHAT THE PRESIDENT SAYS, THIS COUNTRY BELONGS TO YOU. AND IT BELONGS TO EVERYONE. AND TODAY, THAT NOTION, THAT VERY NOTION, WAS CHALLENGED. THIS WEEKEND, THAT VERY NOTION WAS CHALLENGED. SO I AM NOT SURPRISED WHEN THE PRESIDENT SAYS THAT FOUR SITTING MEMBERS OF CONGRESS SHOULD, QUOTE, GO BACK TO THEIR OWN COUNTRY, WHEN HE HAS AUTHORIZED RAIDS WITHOUT WARRANTS ON THOUSANDS OF FAMILIES ACROSS THIS COUNTRY. I AM NOT SURPRISED THAT HE USED THE RHETORIC THAT HE DOES, HE VIOLATES INTERNATIONAL HUMAN RIGHTS AND TAKES THOUSANDS OF CHILDREN AWAY FROM THEIR FAMILIES. I AM NOT SURPRISED THAT HE HAS TURNED OUR PUBLIC EDUCATION SYSTEM UNDER THE LEADERSHIP OF BETSY DeVOS INTO A TAX COW TO ENRICH HIMSELF AND HIS FRIENDS. I’M NOT SURPRISED WHEN HE CORRUPTS THE SECRETARY OF TRANSPORTATION. I’M NOT SURPRISED AT WHAT HE’S DOING. BUT I ALSO KNOW THAT WE’RE FOCUSED ON MAKING IT BETTER BECAUSE WE DON’T LEAVE THE THINGS THAT WE LOVE AND WHEN WE LOVE THIS COUNTRY, WHAT THAT MEANS IS THAT WE PROPOSE THE SOLUTIONS TO FIX IT. WE LOVE ALL PEOPLE IN THIS COUNTRY, AND THAT’S WHY WE BELIEVE HEALTH CARE IS A HUMAN RIGHT. WE LOVE ALL CHILDREN IN THIS COUNTRY, AND BECAUSE WE DO, THAT’S WHY WE FIGHT FOR EDUCATION FOR ALL CHILDREN THROUGH COLLEGE. AND SO WE’LL STAY FOCUSED ON OUR AGENDA AND WE WON’T GET CAUGHT WITH HIM BECAUSE ALL OF THIS IS A DISTRACTION. IT’S A DISTRACTION FROM WHAT’S MOST IMPORTANT AND FROM OUR COAL VALUES AS AMERICAN CITIZENS. WITH THAT, I’LL HAND IT OVER TO RASHIDA TLAIB. >>THANK YOU SO MUCH.SISTERS IN SERVICE. THANK YOU FOR BEING HERE. AS WE ALL KNOW THE RECENT TWEET AND WORDS FROM THE PRESIDENT ARE A CONTINUATION OF HIS RACIST AND XENOPHOBIC PLAYBOOK. WE CANNOT ALLOW HATEFUL ACTIONS BY THE PRESIDENT TO DISTRACT US FROM CRITICAL WORK TO HOLD THE ADMINISTRATION ACCOUNTABLE TO THE INHUMANE CONDITIONS AT THE BORDER SEPARATING CHILDREN FROM THEIR LOVED ONES AND ILLEGAL, HORRIFIC CONDITIONS. I REPRESENT THE THIRD POOREST CONGRESSIONAL DISTRICT IN THIS COUNTRY, ONE THAT’S MADE OF 14 PEOPLE WHO HAVE BEEN TARGETED BY THIS ADMINISTRATION AND THEIR ACTIONS AND WORDS ARE HURTING THEM TODAY. I WAS ELECTED TO FIGHT FOR THEM, FIGHT FOR THE 13 CONGRESSIONAL DISTRICTS. THEY SENT ME HERE TO CONGRESS TO FIGHT BACK AGAINST THE CORPORATE ASSAULT AND THE CORRUPTION IN OUR COUNTRY. THIS MEANS SUPPORTING AN IMPEACHMENT INQUIRY OF THIS PRESIDENT AND HIS ACTIONS BY THE ADMINISTRATION AND HIS APPOINTEES. SADLY, THIS IS NOT THE FIRST, NOR WILL IT BE THE LAST TIME WE HEAR DISGUSTING, BIGOTED LANGUAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT. WE KNOW THIS IS WHO HE IS. AND WE KNOW THAT HE AND HIS ADMINISTRATION, ACTIONS THAT HARM RESIDENTS AND AMERICAN PEOPLE IN OUR COUNTRY. MANY MEMBERS OF CONGRESS HAVE CALLED FOR HIS IMPEACHMENT BECAUSE OF HIS UTTER DISREGARD AND DISRESPECT OF THE UNITED STATES CONSTITUTION. DESPITE THIS AND MANY OTHER ATTEMPTS TO DISTRACT US, I REMAIN FOCUSED, WE REMAINED FOCUS ON HOLDING HIM ACCOUNTABLE TO THE LAWS OF THIS LAND AND ACCOUNTABLE TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE. I URGE HOUSE LEADERSHIP, MANY OF MY COLLEAGUES TO TAKE ACTION TO IMPEACH THIS LAWLESS PRESIDENT TODAY. NOW WE’LL TAKE TWO OR THREE QUESTIONS. MARY, YOU CAN GO FIRST. [ INAUDIBLE QUESTION ] HAVE YOU HAD TO — ARE YOU RECEIVING — [ INAUDIBLE ]>>I WOULD JUST SAY THAT THE EXPERIENCE THAT HE OFFERED IS IN CONTRADICTION TO THE EXPERIENCE THAT I HAVE EVERY DAY INCLUDING IN THE AIRPORT ON MY WAY HERE. THERE WERE MANY PEOPLE WHO APPROACHED ME AND WHO SAID, I DISAGREE WITH SOME OF YOUR POLICIES, I’M AN INDEPENDENT, I’M A REPUBLICAN, BUT I THINK WHAT HE DID WAS WRONG. AND HE WON’T APOLOGIZE, BUT I AM GOING TO APOLOGIZE. SO I HAVE EXPERIENCED NOTHING IN THE WAKE OF THOSE COMMENTS, AGAIN, BUT WORDS OF DENOUNCING THESE XENOPHOBIC, BIGOTED, WORDS. BUT, AGAIN, THIS IS A DISTRACTION AND WE SHOULD NOT TAKE THE BAIT. WE CAN SIT HERE AND CONTINUE TO RECYCLE HIS HATEFUL RHETORIC OF WHICH I CANNOT SAY I’M SURPRISED OR INFLATED OUTRAGE BECAUSE HE IS, IF NOTHING ELSE, PREDICTABLE. WHAT WE ARE FOCUSED ON ARE THE HATEFUL POLICIES THAT ARE DRACONIAN AND OPPRESSIVE AND LIFE-THREATENING AND FAMILY SEPARATING THAT IS BEING ROLLED OUT BY THIS ADMINISTRATION EVERY DAY.>>CAN YOU RESPOND TO SOME OF THE PRESIDENT’S SPECIFIC CLAIMS — THAT YOU’RE A COMMUNIST AND THAT YOU’RE PRO-AL QAEDA?>>YOU MIGHT HAVE NOTICED HOW WHEN HE SAID GO BACK TO WHERE YOU CAME FROM, THERE WAS AN UPROAR THROUGH THE — THROUGH ALL OF OUR COMMUNITIES BECAUSE EVERY SINGLE PERSON WHO’S BROWN AND BLACK AT SOME POINT IN THEIR LIFE IN THIS COUNTRY HEARD THAT. NOW, WHEN HE MADE THE COMMENT, I KNOW THAT EVERY SINGLE MUSLIM WHO HAS LIVED IN THIS COUNTRY AND ACROSS THE WORLD HAS HEARD THAT COMMENT. AND SO I WILL NOT DIGNIFY IT WITH AN ANSWER BECAUSE I KNOW THAT EVERY SINGLE ISLAMOPHOBE, EVERY SINGLE PERSON WHO IS HATEFUL, WHO IS DRIVEN BY AN IDEOLOGY OF OTHERING, AS THIS PRESIDENT IS, REJOICES IN US RESPONDING TO THAT. AND US DEFENDING OURSELVES. I DO NOT EXPECT EVERY TIME THERE IS A WHITE SUPREMACIST WHO ATTACKS OR THERE’S A WHITE MAN WHO KILLS IN A SCHOOL OR IN A MOVIE THEATER OR IN — IN A MOSQUE OR IN A SYNAGOGUE, I DON’T EXPECT MY WHITE COMMUNITY MEMBERS TO RESPOND ON WHETHER THEY LOVE THAT PERSON OR NOT. AND SO I THINK IT IS BEYOND TIME, IT’S BEYOND TIME, TO ASK MUSLIMS TO CONDEMN TERRORISTS. WE ARE NO LONGER GOING TO ALLOW THE DIGNIFYCATION OF SUCH RIDICULOUS, RIDICULOUS, STATEMENT.>>SOME OF YOU HAVE MADE COMMENTS THAT THE PRESIDENT — DO YOU THINK SOME OF THOSE COMMENTS MADE, THAT THEY WERE INFLAMMATORY, CONTROVERSIAL? YOUR SITUATION IS DIFFERENT — SPECIFICALLY DIRECTED SOME OF THE SAME COMMENTS BACK.>>CAN YOU REPEAT THAT?>>THE PRESIDENT IS LOOKING — [ INAUDIBLE QUESTION ] DO YOU THINK THAT WOULD MAKE THIS SITUATION — HE WOULD HAVE THE FIREPOWER, HE — >>NO. >>OKAY. GO AHEAD. >>I WILL TAKE THIS. I THINK ALEX HAS A GREAT ANSWER FOR THIS. I’LL LET HER FINISH THIS. EVERY SINGLE STATEMENT THAT WE MAKE IS FROM A PLACE OF EXTREME LOVE FOR EVERY SINGLE PERSON IN THIS COUNTRY. IT IS PART OF THE MANDATE OF WHY WE RAN FOR OFFICE AND WHY WE GOT ELECTED. EVERY SINGLE PERSON WANTS TO MAKE SURE THAT THEY HAVE PEOPLE IN THE HALLS OF CONGRESS THAT IS FIGHTING TO MAKE SURE THAT THEY HAVE HEALTH CARE, THAT THEY HAVE AN EDUCATION THAT IS SUITABLE IN THE UNITED STATES, THAT THEY HAVE ACCESS TO PROPER ROADS AND BRIDGES, THAT THEY HAVE ACCESS TO CLEAN WATER AND CLEAN AIR. EVERY SINGLE PERSON HERE IN THE UNITED STATES KNOWS THAT WE ARE FIGHTING EVERY SINGLE DAY TO CREATE A MORE PERFECT UNION AND TO FIGHT ON THEIR BEHALF. NOW, WHEN PEOPLE SAY IF YOU SAY A NEGATIVE THING ABOUT THE POLICIES IN THIS COUNTRY, YOU HATE THIS COUNTRY, TO ME, IT SORT OF SPEAKS TO THE HYPOCRISY. ALEX AND I WERE TALKING ABOUT THIS. WHEN THIS PRESIDENT RAN, AND UNTIL TODAY, HE TALKED ABOUT EVERYTHING THAT WAS WRONG IN THIS COUNTRY AND HOW HE WAS GOING TO MAKE IT GREAT. AND SO FOR HIM TO CONDEMN US AND TO SAY WE ARE UN-AMERICAN FOR WANTING TO WORK HARD TO MAKE THIS COUNTRY BE THE COUNTRY WE ALL DESERVE TO LIVE IN, COMPLETE HYPOCRISY. >>ABSOLUTELY. AND I — I DON’T THINK IT WOULD HAVE CHANGED ANYTHING BECAUSE FIRST OF ALL, HE MADE STATEMENTS THAT WERE BLATANTLY UNTRUE. SO WHETHER HE WAS CITING COMMENTS OR NOT CITING COMMENTS, IF HE DIDN’T HAVE WHAT HE WANTED TO SAY, HE WOULD MAKE IT UP. THIS PRESIDENT OPERATES IN COMPLETE BAD FAITH. HE DOES NOT OPERATE IN GOOD FAITH. SO THAT’S ONE THING. BUT SECOND TO THE PREVIOUS QUESTION, AS WELL, WEAK MINDS AND LEADERS CHALLENGE LOYALTY TO OUR COUNTRY IN ORDER TO AVOID CHALLENGING AND DEBATING THE POLICY. THIS PRESIDENT DOES NOT KNOW HOW TO MAKE THE ARGUMENT THAT AMERICANS DO NOT DESERVE HEALTH CARE. HE DOES NOT KNOW HOW TO DEFEND HIS POLICY. SO WHAT HE DOES IS ATTACK US PERSONALLY. AND THAT IS WHAT THIS IS ALL ABOUT. HE CAN’T LOOK A CHILD IN THE FACE AND HE CAN’T LOOK ALL AMERICANS IN THE FACE AND JUSTIFY WHY THIS COUNTRY IS THROWING THEM IN CAGES. SO INSTEAD, HE TELLS US THAT I SHOULD GO BACK TO THE GREAT BOROUGH OF THE BRONX AND MAKE IT BETTER. AND THAT’S WHAT I’M HERE TO DO.>>THANK YOU, ALL, SO MUCH, FOR BEING HERE. WE REALLY DO APPRECIATE IT. THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

  • I think Trump just meant for Ocasio-Cortez, Tlaib, Omar, Pressley to go back to the Temple of Baal where they came from.

  • Why is it That Elijah Cummings and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Aynna Pressley and Rashid Tlaib on the committee when they declare that they are racist.

  • Dragonfly B!tch Bauer says:

    Interesting that AOC said that Potus attacked them personally. It seems to me that all this impeachment stuff and most of what they complain about is personal or they exaggerate anything and twist things to fit their needs so they can feel justified in attacking Trump

  • When it come to these Horse Women of the apocolyse I don't consider them senators Same with Dina Titus.They are only paperwaits and chairs.

  • Fortune and glory. says:

    It was a genius move by Trump. Distract the media by throwing them an irresistible morsel that was designed to make Pelosi re-align with this Psycho Socialist Squad, while he signs a bill to severely restrict asylum seekers. The MSM couldn't resist presenting a tweet in their "racist" narrative. MSM is SO predictable. Trump has the Democrats and the media dancing like puppets.

  • 17:00 — all the clutter aside — let's just note that she continues to denounce both Islamic terrorism as well as communism.

  • The new face of the looney left…the “Death Squad “ to the Democratic Party. Trump 2020🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

  • BroBeWan JoeKnowT. says:

    So proud of these four women. Look at their wonderful range of color. Their spirit. Their energy. They will stay in session, and do the work of the American people, when these life long politicians that need to go, would take a vacation. Right on sisters. Keep givin' em both barrells! <3<3<3 #MsPressley #MsTalib #MsOcasioCortez #MsOmar

  • These idiots fall back on populism and act like they’re victims. It’s a joke. After all they’ve said about our country they are the victims. One and done. Every one of those idiots.

  • If they cannot call President Trump the president of the United States and only the occupant of the White House they should leave their office for sure and get out of our country. Is that like Obama was the occupant of the White House? If they can't call our president the president, they should be removed from their office immediately if not sooner.

  • YouTube cannot follow their own so-called standards. Because they have nudity and sexual content and claimed they don't put up with this:

    Nudity or sexual content

    YouTube is not for pornography or sexually explicit content. If this describes your video, even if it's a video of yourself, don't post it on YouTube. Also, be advised that we work closely with law enforcement and we report child exploitation.

  • Seeing this leftist Squad of four Feminist Marxist gives us reason to stop voting for women for any political office. Don't even vote for So-called conservative women because they are all feminists that want to rule over men.

  • Dirtbags..when you love something you don't at every chance spew negative rhetoric and lies,,also they don't love this country..that is obvious,our country is an idea,and they hate the whole formation and want to change it completly for this PC STUPIDITY. ..they talk of respect and tolerance and show none,,,total hypocrites with their fake outrage and the everything is racist attitude is foolish and weak

  • Estas 4 brujas estan locas, promoviendo el estado islamico y comunismo,,,,, U.S.A has to stand hard and dont let this people take control of the country..

  • The races of the skank squad consist of two blacks and two whites (who don't even know they are in the white race category). i think aoc thinks hispanic is a race and tlaib thinks middle easterner is a race or maybe they think "of color" is a race. They're of the white race and playing the brown? race card. which race is brown?

  • Daniel Kendzierski says:

    Not a fan of the chants or Trumps tweets, but these four are the most incompetent people to ever hold political office.

  • SeekTruthinLight says:

    Attacked by Trump? you mean his response to their cynical way of ignorance playing politics. you'd think, given the opportunity they were given, they might have something honorable and positive to add rather than their hatred, vitriol, and disrespect, for the elected President of the United States, like him or not, given the enormous complexity of the job he, and them as well, has meeting the needs and challenges we face in a balanced way. And s far as the conditions on the border… most of the responsibility falls upon those putting themselves and children in that situation, in their choices illegally crossing the border, and being encouraged by traffickers trying to take advantage of the system, even where the UN and Vatican is involved as part of 2030 agenda moving people out of South America. Surly they will blame the deaths, due to impatience and ignorance in the way, on others and not themselves being complicit. What I see is ignorant people trying to help, who instead are making things worse, in error of spirit, of the truths they manifest in Error.

  • SeekTruthinLight says:

    One can tell she goes the way of error in spirit by the truths of error she manifest that is highly disrespectful even for the media to honor giving a platform. You can tell they go the way of Error in spirit by their hypocrisy and disrespect "the garbage coming out of the mouth" and the "making a mockery of the Constitution" they accuse the President of doing.

  • SeekTruthinLight says:

    The things they say, actually are their way of error in spirit, even when she said "this is a distraction." The making the way of ones error, all of our way error, is contrary to survival, like making the spirit of the way of America the spirit of the way of error of SHARIA law.

  • Why is there no pro comments in this stream???
    Why should the 4 not have a 'white' 5th to encompass all …..
    New world order = hysterical women only..

  • Rashida Tlaib: How about you and the other freshman just do the job you were elected for and take care of your districts.. Stop this grandstanding. You're an embarrassment to MI and those that helped Trump win Michigan!

  • Vanessa Amaral says:

    What happend to martin luther kings dream that everyone will be equal and it shouldnt be abt race. We are fighting for this country to not be abt immigrants. Or humans that are being called aliens. Abt children locked im cages. Abt familes being seperated. What happend to america. America isnt abt freedom if children are being in cagez and dying

  • November Flower702 says:

    SMH “in the a(wake)” of this noise pollution:
    Apart from the overall baloney- without even touching upon the sheer idiocy going on here- I truly can not understand how it is that NO one advised these “professionals” on things as basic as correct grammar and wording during preparations for this instance of public speaking. Ladies, if you don’t care enough to do your (paid) “homework” before addressing the public, WHY would you expect anyone to care about what you have to say?

  • November Flower702 says:

    A SHAME…the era has arrived where: we now have an influx of young women into positions of political power…are THESE really the ideas and behaviors which best represent us?

    Was already disgusted with these women for abusing their positions of power-by perpetuating racism, ignorance, false projections, feigned indignance and so on- but then Cortez actually goes ahead and addresses the “children across this country”, further encouraging an attitude of ENTITLEMENT in our youth.

    Omar: probably should rethink your use of words like “Always”, “Every”, “Every Single”…

    Pressley: you didn’t slip by unnoticed. Saying “I am going to apologize” does not an apology make…is rather deceptive and immature.

  • this crazy quad know no shame, they will do anything to get attention , yes anything. they are lying to everybody every day and they know it. shame on people who were so dumb to vote for these crazy people

  • Franz Fischer says:

    This is a blessing in disguise for the nation. This is how God cleanses His nation by bringing wicket people to wake the people up to come to senses.

  • Omar what you are spewing is HATRED AND LIES . LIES, what about your own LIES AND FRAUD? YOU SHOULD BE IMPEACHED FOR YOUR FRAUDS..
    :@

  • I had a good morning… I squeezed out a massive Omar, wiped my Tlaib, then flushed the AOC.

    My bathroom still smelled like Pressley…

  • I had a good morning… I squeezed out a massive Omar, wiped my Tlaib, then flushed the AOC.

    My bathroom still smelled like Pressley…

  • Plenty of paid keyboards flooding this comment section. It is very apparent that quite a bit of money is being spent on this topic. Its more or less same people just different account names with different email addresses who make a comment look like a real person is involved in crafting the response. In fact just dozens of paid keyboards who create multiple fictitious email accounts then overloading the comment section. Low IQ comments getting over 50 likes…getting over 100 likes. Majority people dont care to read the comments becuase its the same story over and over again creating openings to paste links to propaganda videos. So most of the people care about how the children have been treated not these comments that are slanderous and offer noreal substance just insults. Low IQ.

  • Look for my other comments in the comment section. Just another reason why the paid keyboards get attention. Children deserve respect and this is not lawful. It amazes me still how this is going on with all the news outlets covering this. This is worldwide news…how the great usa has declined in dignity. The human rights decree was agreed to long ago. It was after WW2 that nations agreed to this decree and now the usa executive branch is violating this law???

  • thats what dems do ,, they take what he says and twist it…go trump go 2020 will show what the american people think of these vial woman and the rest of the extreme lefts

  • swpm.,- d6hk,. says:

    With what arrogance are the Muslims in America? for only one generation here. Imagine if there are more genrationen …. good night America.

  • Well first you want to say thank you for allowing me to come into your country and wreak havoc. These women are racist! They do not need to speak for me or on my behalf. These woman are the distraction. Don’t fall for it.

  • Jihad Squad. When the those voted in have no American values we are doomed ! Communism and reverse racism will cause civil war!

  • It seems that iam going to just say it, these women are racist against white people. I have been listening to them and watching them and they hate white males with a passion.

  • The only possible explanation for Tlaib's face would be a near-fatal rear end collision between her motorcycle and the back of a semi truck

  • I do not appreciate the harassment of the President these people in our Congress spew every day. They do not represent the People of the United States. They represent the Drug Cartel and criminals coming into the country illegally. They hate our President, they hate our laws (& don't follow them), and they hate the legal citizens of the United States. They are for murdering children in the womb. They care only for themselves and power and destroying the United States. Omar supports Hamas. They all support anti-fa. They are lying lunatics. Why do we have to endure these lying scum?

  • OWINGS FAMILY Owings says:

    They called Cris Pratt a white supremacist for wearing an American flag t shirt ,that read don't tread on me…

  • Charles Charlemagne says:

    Ah yes, Ayanna Pressley…the woman who called Kellyanne Conway a "Becky" on Twitter…a racial slur for a white woman. Not a single word of condemnation from the media, no votes of condemnation from the House…now she's up here crying about Trump's supposed racist tweets. The hypocrisy doesn't even cross her mind. Unbelievable.

  • Charles Charlemagne says:

    Ilhan Omar can barely speak English. All she knows is identity politics and race baiting….oh, and sympathizing with terrorists.

  • These four duly elected ladies make extremely valid points on human rights and human dignity, even if they are democrats who many, including myself, consider the worst violators of human rights and dignity in their support for the slaughter of little babies. So I see serious crimes on both sides, like a republican administration raiding and ripping families apart, and making them drink toilet water. It's almost as if the 2 sides are working in unison to committ crimes against humanity. But these ladies have grave concerns, and rightly so.
    .

  • smallkitty wood says:

    These 4 shameless Democratic Party garbage only spread falls accusations against Trump to increase their visibility.

  • When did the 3 stooges add another one??? What a blatant, disgusting, and ridiculous portrayal of betrayal against the American people, coming from these women. I agree with Trump…….if you don't like it here, leave!

  • You know what i dont got ANY RESPECT FOR YOU 4 LOSERS YOU HATE AMERICA SO MUCH WHAT ABOUT DUBI AND THE PRINCESS'S YOU MORONS WHY NOT HELP THEM TALK ABOUT HOW EVIL DUBAIS LEADER IS

  • By recently bowing down to Apartheid Israel and the Zionist lobby in the anti BDS bill Ayanna Pressley has clearly shown she does NOT support human rights. She doesn’t belong with the other brave and independent progressives.

  • We love Trump and all the deplorable X, these women are the enemies of free people everywhere, they do not represent us, period!

  • Why are they representing Palestine? This an enemy of America plus they are US representatives again why are they representing Palestine?
