President Donald Trump may have finally met his match: The Squad.
The famously foul-mouthed President on Sunday launched yet another Twitter tirade, saying that the four congresswomen, known as The Squad -- US Reps. Ilhan Omar, Ayanna Pressley, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Rashida Tlaib -- should "go back" to the countries they came from. All four are US citizens, and three were born in the United States (Omar is a refugee from Somalia who spent part of her life in a Kenyan refugee camp).
But the women haven't backed down. Nor have they responded with platitudes or undeserved tact. Instead, they've called the President what he is ("racist") and his language what it is ("white nationalist"). Unlike the many politicians and public figures previously attacked by Trump, these four women can fight him on his own turf: Ocasio-Cortez, in particular, is social media savvy and understands the particular patois of Twitter. They also have youth on their side; next to them, Trump seems like the grumpy, racist grandpa that he is.
And, more importantly, they have the moral high ground. It takes some real mental jiujitsu to twist Trump's comments into anything other than straight-up racism. How else do you explain someone telling four American citizens to "go back" to foreign countries? What the President really means is that nonwhite Americans have a less legitimate claim on this nation than white ones. Two of the President's three wives, after all, have been immigrants themselves, and he doesn't seem to suggest that they should "go back." The "go back" assault is fundamentally racist and cruel.

Ah, CNN. Such jokers. Love their comedy.
They finally got him cornered...
As soon as I saw CNN, I stopped reading.
Nancy Pelosi met her match with them last week when SHE was being called a racist for criticizing them.
So much yellow journalism on display.
An Orwellian nightmare from the Stalinist press.
These 4 whiny commies would make a pimple on Trump’s butt let alone be a match for anyone with more than 2 brain cells.
I guess to someone from CNN; they are really smart. To an ant; a foot is really big too just before it steps on it.
Anybody keeping track?
How many times can they possibly be wrong and still have any viewers??
Communist News Network
ROFL. The commies overestimate their influence, but they have no choice other than to spew nonsense such as this.
Oh yeah, they’ve got him now.
A list of those of whom the MSM said were going to finally take down Trump, and where they are today, would be amusing.
CNN, sponsor of AF terrorist activities in America.
They’ve become a source of fundraising tweets for AF. Communist AF. No longer will they be called “antifa”, they are Communist As F***.
Whotta Front Hole.
Rep Sandy Bartender-Cortez (NY-Deranged) needs to go back to where she came from and figure out how a garbage disposal works in her bourgeoisie apartment. When she obtains basic life experience, maybe she can come back.
I love that he never says what they say he says, but what they hope he says.
I look forward to the CNN/MSNBC/ABC/NBC/CBS/PBS/FNC meltdown on election night 2020.
Because when you disagree with someone’s ideas it has nothing to do with their skin color. When you challenge someone to go back where they are from and fix all the problems there before telling everyone how to fix problems here it has nothing to do with their skin color.
As even the dumb people who work at CNN full well know. They say dumb stuff like this because they have nothing else to attack Trump with.
