GOP lawmaker breaks rank, has harsh take on ‘send her back’ chant


Last night at a rally in North Carolina, supporters of President Trump began to chant “send her back” after the Commander in Chief invoked the name of Ilhan Omar – a democratic Congresswoman from Minnesota.

The scene comes to us just days after President Trump tweeted something of a similar effect regarding “the squad” of freshman Congresswomen who oppose him.  The tweet has been deemed “racist” by many, and has drawn major rebuke from lawmakers around the nation.

In this latest instance of the chanting North Carolinians, even some members of the GOP are beginning to show concern.

Republican Rep. Adam Kinzinger of Illinois on Thursday morning called a chant that broke out at President Donald Trump’s rally the previous night — when the crowd yelled “send her back” as the President targeted Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota — “ugly” and “wrong” and said it “would send chills down the spines of our Founding Fathers.”

“I deeply disagree with the extreme left & have been disgusted by their tone. I woke up today equally disgusted – chants like ‘send her back’ are ugly, wrong, & would send chills down the spines of our Founding Fathers. This ugliness must end, or we risk our great union,” Kinzinger said in a tweet on Thursday morning.
President Trump has attempted to defend the tweets as coming from a perspective of socioeconomic policies and not of ethnicity.
The tweets sparked a resolution of condemnation against the President that was passed by the House of Representatives on Tuesday.
