4chan in the White House

The BBC notices Trump’s targeting of Ilhan Omar:

On Monday Mr Trump stepped up his attacks against Ms Omar, calling her “out of control”.

He also said Mrs Pelosi “should look at the anti-Semitic, anti-Israel and ungrateful US HATE statements Omar has made” before defending her.

Says the guy who has made more racist sexist appearance-ist statements than anyone can keep track of.

Also, this Nancy shit. She’s the Speaker of the House, she’s a grown-up and a colleague, not a child holding her dolly. She doesn’t call him “Donnie” in public, he should not be calling her “Nancy” in that rude contemptuous vulgar way.

In a statement on Sunday, Ms Omar said: “Since the president’s tweet Friday evening, I have experienced an increase in direct threats on my life – many directly referring or replying to the president’s video”.

She thanked security officials for “their attention to these threats” and accused Mr Trump of fuelling a rise in “violent crimes and other acts of hate by right-wing extremists and white nationalists”.

She also expressed concern that Mr Trump’s visit to her home state of Minnesota on Monday could lead to an increase in hate crimes and assaults.

“Violent rhetoric and all forms of hate speech have no place in our society, much less from our country’s Commander in Chief.

“We are all Americans. This is endangering lives. It has to stop,” she said.

It has to, but it won’t. Trump has woken a beast and it’s not in any hurry to go back to sleep.
