Americans may be in need of some serious soul searching this week.
The President yesterday disavowed the crowd at his North Carolina reelection rally for chanting “send her back” after a mention of Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar was made. The disturbing moment came just days after the President was accused of using “racist” language in a tweet regarding Omar, and has thrust our nation into a sobering conversation about what’s acceptable political behavior for a nation predicated on the principles of freedom and the pursuit of happiness.
Omar, on her return to Minnesota, was greeted at the airport by cheering constituents, who wished to show support for her work in Congress during this turbulent week. She is, after all, their public servant.
President Trump blasted the fracas as phony, however, claiming that the congregating constituents were “staged”.
Trump decried the establishment media on Twitter for covering the event, accusing them of a “sick partnership” with the radical left.
“They even covered a tiny staged crowd as they greeted Foul Mouthed Omar in Minnesota, a state which I will win in 2020 because they can’t stand her and her hatred of our Country,” he wrote.
A video of the moment was broadcast from the Congresswoman’s personal Twitter account.

The President continued:
“Mainstream Media, which has lost all credibility, has either officially or unofficially become a part of the Radical Left Democrat Party,” Trump wrote. “It is a sick partnership, so pathetic to watch!”
The feud between Trump and “The Squad” – a band of four newcomer Congresswomen – will likely continue well into the 2020 election cycle.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook and Twitter, and follow our friends at RepublicanLegion.com.
