Adam Schiff’s Under Threat of Being Unseated by a Drag Queen – Because America Needs ‘More Everyday People in Congress’

Democratic California Rep. Adam Schiff’s got someone gunnin’ for his seat.

Earlier this year, in a hip area of LA, history was made: A drag queen was elected to local government.

And now that dandy dude — who snagged a place on the Silver Lake Neighborhood Council — is comin’ for Adam.

That’s right: In 2020, the entertainer known as Maebe A. Girl will be maybe a congressman.

According to Route Fifty, Maebe will go face-to-heavily-made-up-face with Adam in an open primary.

Maebe considers Adam an ally of homosexuals. But he believes the gay community needs an actual gay person in the House of Representatives defending their interests, not just some friend of theirs tryin’ to get the job done:

COUNCIL UPDATES! Last night at the SLNC Governing Board Special Meeting we approved our 2019-2020 budget, $14,300 of which will be designated for Neighborhood Purpose Grants. If you or someone you know is part of a 501c3 organization in Silver Lake, inquire with the SLNC about how your organization can apply for a grant.

Rather than random “sweeps” the recommendation is to have scheduled cleanups in an effort to provide notice and allow individuals to gather their personal belongings, which often include personal identification and prescriptions that can be so difficult for homeless people to reobtain once they’ve been thrown out.

Right now, Washington’s all messed up — Congress is full of rich white guys. Maebe wants to fix that hogwash; it’s time for Capitol Hill to get some regular ol’ everyday-American folks:

“We need more everyday people in Congress—its overwhelmingly older, white, wealthy men, and that’s just not representative of America, or my district.”

So does Maebe wanna be a congressman or congresswoman? Well, as per People, he identifies as transgender, which means, of course, he fancies himself female. But he also considers himself gender fluid, which — I’m assuming — means he’s neither and both and other sexes, too.

He’s the real him, and he’s also Maebe:

“People will say ‘I can’t take her seriously with that name, but it’s really just a statement about gender norms. I don’t feel like there’s a difference between Maebe A. Girl and me.”

In 2018, Adam received over 75% of the vote.

But Maebe’s got a secret weapon:

“It’s…hard for people to ignore you in drag.”

Absolutely true.

Maybe we’ll see Adam rise to the occasion and fight fire with fire. Maybe he’ll become Adaline Schiff.

Maebe.

Democratic Congressman Tells His Swing District: We Need Illegal Immigrants to Mow Our Beautiful Lawns

Westlake Legal Group grass-4102398_1280-620x413 Democratic Congressman Tells His Swing District: We Need Illegal Immigrants to Mow Our Beautiful Lawns washington D.C. Uncategorized tom malinowski Politics New Jersey mowing lawns jobs americans won't do jobs Illegal Immigration Front Page Stories Featured Story elections Dirty Jobs democrats Congress Allow Media Exception 2020

 

 

During a “Coffee with Your Congressman” event in a wealthy New Jersey suburb Tuesday, Democratic Rep. Tom Malinowski reminded voters why they need illegal immigrants: to “[mow their] beautiful lawns.”

He explained:

“We have to think about the jobs, because the reason this happens is because there are a lot of jobs in our community that — like it or not, for better or worse — Americans are not willing to take.”

This is a notion offered up by politicians for several years now; it’s also an idea — it should be noted — that’s a big hunk o’ baloney.

If the pay is fair for the work, whatever the job, there are Americans ready to do it.

Just ask Mike Rowe (here); not everyone’s in training to be a software applications developer.

But Tom doesn’t believe that:

“I mean, who do you think is taking care of our seniors? Fifty percent of the eldercare workers in the state of New Jersey are immigrants, most of them legal – most of them documented – but certainly some of them are not. Who do you think is mowing our beautiful lawns in Somerset County? We don’t usually ask, but a lot of those workers are undocumented.”

There are also American teenagers mowing lawns, and American adults with lawncare businesses — in areas or situations where they haven’t been priced out of the opportunity.

Tom wanted all of y’all to know that teenagers now are too consumed with robots to push a mower:

“There just aren’t a lot of kids who – sorry – are from Montgomery High [School], who are going to be doing that full time. You guys are going into robotics, for goodness sake.”

Amid the crowd, a young person interjected that they work at a place teaching kids to code their own video games.

Tom replied, “You work at Code Ninjas — exactly. You’re a bunch of elitists. You’re not going to mow lawns.”

Here’s perhaps a shock for Tom: For many Americans of all walks of life, it isn’t about whether the American teenager down the street or the American-owned company in town or an illegal immigrant is going to mow their lawns.

For many, many Americans…

…brace yourself, Tom…and Beto…and Nancy…

…many Americans…

mow their OWN lawns.

They actually own mowers and use ’em.

Without any help at all from illegal immigrants.

Or anyone else.

Tom needs help himself: This is only his first term in Congress, and he’s in a swing district. The promise of a second term is tenuous.

But this ain’t his first political rodeo: he was Obama’s Assistant Secretary of State for Democracy, Human Rights, and Labor.

Recently, Mr.Malinowski became the first swing-representing Dem to endorse the impeachment of Donald Trump.

That seems risky, but I don’t have time to think about it — I’ve got other articles to write.

And yardwork to do.

Uncategorized twilight Politics new moon Hysteria George W. Bush Front Page Stories Fredo evil donald trump democrats CNN Chris Cuomo Asia Allow Media Exception

 

 

We’ve seen it before: A guy goes into the White House with dark hair and a youthful sheen, comes out a few years later with hair of white and a face like an old catcher’s mitt.

The presidency ages you.

But what of Donald Trump’s unfathomably good looks? Why, put him in a pair of trunks, and the guy could pass for nineteen.

Chris “I Ain’t A-Fredo” Cuomo has an explanation for the President’s Michael-J-Fox-like perennial good looks a few years in:

He doesn’t care about you. Or me. Or anyone.

And when your heart has no feeling, it’s a stress-free ride, Jack!

That’s right: Chris has cracked the code on Trump’s age-defyin’ ways. The veritable Neutrogena model is just a psychopath.

Hence, his pool-boy good looks.

Chris is coming off the heels of just having said some paralyzingly foolish things that made national news (here). It seems like he might wanna sit it out for a bit. But he’s come out with this newest installment quicker than Twilight 2 hit the silver screen.

On CNN’s Cuomo Prime Time this week — a show which, in terms of network censure, has suffered not at all since the host told a man, “I’ll f***ing throw you down these stairs like a f***ing punk” and “I’ll f***ing wreck your sh**” — Mario Cuomo’s younger brother put up a side-by-side comparison of Bill, Barack, and Donald.

Chris provided his expert analysis:

“I mean come on, look at Clinton’s hair — went white. George W. Bush looks like he got a beat down. Obama looks like his own grandfather. … This is a very hard job because of the stress they carry with them.”

Has Chris never heard of Clairol? Some candidates douse themselves with it when running for office.

On to Trump:

“Now let’s look at this president. It’s been almost three years since Trump won the presidency. He looks exactly the same. His hair is — I don’t know what’s going on with that. But he may do things that presidents in the past haven’t done to augment their physical reality.”

??

How does he know what all the presidents haven’t done, when he doesn’t know what this president has done?

Either way, here we go…

Explicación:

“But it could also be he doesn’t care the way others have? He seems content to vent and foment problems. … He doesn’t deal with the trying business of compromise. He chases the easy slumber of blaming others and sowing the seeds of discord and division.”

Chris also offered, “I argue this: The President told us a very important truth today. Listen.”

He then played a clip of Trump being asked if issues with China keep him up at night. The Donald replied: “Nothing keeps me up at night.”

Cue Chris’s provision of Obama telling Barbara Walters a lot of things keep him awake.

So now Trump’s guilty of getting restorative sleep? Weren’t we told during the election that he was old and in horrible physical condition? Wouldn’t a solid 8 hours of Zzzz’s do the decrepit man some good?

Also, it seems to me the question of whether any politician “cares” about us is one of the most immature ideas in the world.

Who will make the best president is surely determined by a lot of things. But none of them, in my opinion, should be emotional.

Personally, I want someone comfortable with leadership whose policies are sound — a person who knows how to get things done, and who wants to bring good ideas to fruition.

Whether they “care” or not is incidental. My great grandmother cared; but I wouldn’t campaign for her.

Still, Chris does have one point: It’s downright inexplicable that New York’s eccentric billionaire hasn’t aged a couple centuries by now. As we’ve constantly been told, Donald perches like a gargoyle at night, sharpening his talons and seething with more hate, viciousness, anger, and insanity than the world could ever imagine. He’s always one strained fart away from literally combusting from the pressure of sheer maniacal evil boiling within.

So how’s he managed to stay so Matthew Broderickish?

Maybe the far and heated Left has just been full of it. Maybe Donald Trump is comfortable running a giant business and can take it in stride.

Or maybe I’m wrong. Maybe he’s a divisive, raging maniac.

Maybe he’s someone…just like this:

Secretary Of State Mike Pompeo Once Again Says No To Running For Senate

Even though Mitch McConnell really wants him to run, Mike Pompeo is happy right where he is now as Secretay of State.

In an interview that covered a number of topics, Pompeo was once again pressed on whether or not he would be interested in leaving the administration early and run for Senate in his home state of Kansas. He once again shot the idea down. Cold.

From the Washington Examiner…

Washington Examiner : You want people from Youngstown, Pittsburgh?

Pompeo: And Wichita. Yes, and small towns in Texas, and Alabama, and Mississippi, and Appalachia, and in Idaho and Montana. I want people to come from all around because we need those voices heard here at the State Department as well.

Washington Examiner : … and running for Senate?

Pompeo: I am going to stay here. I’ve talked about this. I’m focused on what I’m doing right now. You can go read about it. There’s lots of people talking about it. The only one who’s not talking about it—

Washington Examiner : Is you?

Pompeo: Is me. Precisely.

This is incredibly good news for the country and the Trump administration. Pompeo has been a steady hand at both C.I.A. and now at State. With the amount of overturn in this administrations cabinet, having the person at State Department being a valued asset to the President with North Korea, China, Hong Kong and Iran going on should be reassuring to most Americans.

Kansas is a usually reliable state for the Republicans. I fully understand why Senator Mitch McConell would want a candidate to run with the qualifications of Mr. Pompeo. However, if they can’t find another overly qualified person in Kansas to run on the GOP ticket than that should be worrisome to the overall chances for the GOP to retain control of that chamber in 2020.

For now, we have a steady hand at State during a critical time in U.S. Foreign policy and should be thankful for that.

Did CNN Put One Of Its Contributors Who Supports Trump On Ice?

Westlake Legal Group cnn-building-300x225 Did CNN Put One Of Its Contributors Who Supports Trump On Ice? white house washington D.C. Social Media racism Race progressives President Trump Prager University Oliver Darcy Morning Briefing Media Mainstream Media Hollywood Front Page Stories Front Page Fredo First Amendment Featured Story Featured Post fake news donald trump democrats corruption Conservatives CNN Allow Media Exception Abuse of Power 2019

Would CNN ( also known as the Fredo Network) put a paid contributor on ice for defending President Trump in a safe, honest venue like a Prager University video? Damn right they would. The way that Trump jackhammers them on a daily basis you really can’t blame them.

According to various reports around the interwebs, Trump’s 2020 advisory board member and CNN contributor Steve Cortes might have been put on ice from commentary on the network. President Trump has noticed.

From Mediaite…

“Where’s Steve?” Trump has repeatedly asked — according to two unnamed officials who have heard the president make the remark in the White House.

The Trump surrogate recently got in some hot water with his colleagues over his characterization of media reporting on the president’s comments about Charlottesville. In a video for PragerU, Cortes accused the media of committing “journalistic malfeasance” by saying that Trump described Nazis as “very fine people.”

“Calling this a ‘malicious lie’ (which it’s not) and ‘journalistic malfeasance’ (which it’s also not) is a weird thing for someone who is a paid CNN commentator to say, given the network’s accurate reporting on the matter,” said CNN’s Oliver Darcy, in response.

I love how Darcy just says this is not true out of hand. If you actually watch the Prager University video it makes some points that Darcy and his pals would have trouble refuting without a teleprompter. Which means words that someone else wrote and or approved for them. ( Prager university video below for YOU to take a look.)

Now if my understanding is correct on how most contracts work on the news side of things in cable T.V. than Steve is getting paid no matter if they use him or not. Each contract is individualized to a certain degree but generally, that is how they go. Plus he is an at-will employee so if they want to pay him to sit they can do that until his contract runs out and then he can shop his services elsewhere.

I absolutely believe that CNN would “punish” someone this way for putting out an argument that goes against the narrative that is peddled and might deserve a fair debate. The powers at CNN don’t want any part of that. They just wanna cover-up for Fredo and Don and hope they can get a bigger share live than Rachel Maddow gets in re-runs.

Check out the video below and let me know what you think about it or if the Fredo network would do such a thing as freeze out a Trump surrogate that they are paying for his point of view.

Democrat Aide Outs Ocasio-Cortez’s Self-Interest: “She Has No Plans to Serve the People”

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., listens during questioning at a House Oversight and Reform committee hearing on facial recognition technology in government, Tuesday, June 4, 2019, on Capitol Hill in Washington. (AP Photo/Jacquelyn Martin)

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez likes to pretend she cares about the people she was elected by, but she consistently proves that she’s not the person she presents herself to be.

Between taking thousands of jobs away from her constituents thanks to chasing Amazon out of New York — something she’s maintained pride for — and being involved in corrupt financial practices, AOC can reasonably be viewed as a fraud. This latest story doesn’t help her image either.

According to the New York Post, calling AOC’s D.C. office doesn’t allow you to reach the office at all, and instead, you hear a message directing you to the website before another recorded voice tells you to call again before saying “goodbye.”

The New York Post reported that they called all 13 representatives in New York and got a live representative every time, with the exception of AOC’s office:

The Post called the offices of all 13 lawmakers representing New York City – even those in high-profile positions like Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler – and a real person answered the call on every occasion, in every office location, except for calls dialed to AOC’s two offices.

An anonymous Democrat aide spoke to the New York Post and exposed a hidden tidbit about AOC and her motives:

“She has no plans to serve the people. That’s why she has no constituent services operation,” one Congressional Democratic aide told The Post. “If you’re a grandma in Queens who needs help with her Medicare and you call AOC’s ‘district office’ you get a recording that tells you to visit the website instead.”

“What kind of elitist nonsense is that?” the aide said. “Shameful, it’s all shameful.”

Ocasio-Cortez’s aides said the reason for this boils down to the volume of calls the congresswoman receives, and that they use a special filtering system that prevents calls from out of state from reaching the office to better serve those who actually are in AOC’s district:

Aides to Ocasio-Cortez say the issue is call volume. Their office deployed a special phone filtering system that blocks callers without New York or DC area codes from even making it through. Such callers get a message directing them to the Bronx Democrat’s website. There’s no option to leave a message.

“With the filter on only DC and New York phone numbers can get through,” spokesman Corbin Trent told The Post, acknowledging that his out-of-state cellphone wouldn’t be able to call the main office. “When you are getting the volume of incoming that we get, the most important thing is to try to filter out some of the volume to get the people you are actually supposed to be here to work for.”

However, other lawmakers who have the same high-profile as Ocasio-Cortez don’t have this problem, including House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and the high-profile members of “The Squad,” such as Reps. Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib, both who have dominated the news cycle over the past month far more than AOC has.

The Post called AOC’s D.C. office on Monday and went through a series of hurdles before hitting the brick wall of a full message box:

On Monday when The Post called the district office, the voice of the congresswoman greeted the caller.

She goes through the options telling callers to press two “if you’re a constituent of New York’s 14th district.”

A number of options direct callers to her website – or tell reporters to email her communications team.

“For all other questions or to speak to the receptionist, please press three.”

Dialing two and dialing three sends callers to the same place. It’s to a recording of a man saying “sorry to have missed your call. We are either on the other line or away from the phone. Please leave a message after the tone.”

A female recording then says: “I’m sorry, but this mailbox is full. Please try again later.”

While there’s no doubt that AOC receives an inordinate amount of phone calls and messages, her problem isn’t the volume of calls, it’s the volume of staff. The young congresswoman has the least amount of staff when it comes to lawmakers, which is odd, given the fact that her offices are rent-free and she could easily afford them.

A lawmaker can have up to 18 full-time employees and four part-time employees at any given time. Ocasio-Cortez reportedly has 13 staff members and two paid interns.

Why she’s not spending the extra cash to employ more staff to handle the cavalcade of communications coming from Americans is an oddity, given her popularity. It’s hard not to arrive at the conclusion that she’s trying to keep as much cash as she can at the inconvenience of Americans.

Reaching for 2020, Beto O’Rourke Tries to Cash In on Ben Shapiro’s Name. Shapiro Burns Him Something Fierce

Controversial conservative commentator Ben Shapiro, editor-in-chief of the Daily Wire and former editor-at-large of Breitbart News, addresses the student group Young Americans for Freedom at the University of Utah’s Social and Behavioral Sciences Lecture Hall, Wednesday, Sept. 27, 2017.

On Tuesday, Beto O’Rourke’s campaign sent out a mass-email referencing conservative voice Ben Shapiro.

Its subject line was “Trump, the NRA, Ben Shapiro, and Brit Hume,” and the digital dispatch trumpeted that “Beto’s running a new kind of campaign.”

What kind would that be? “One that throws out the old political playbook and fully focuses on people. It starts with engaging everyone, everyday, everywhere — whether they’re in an early state, a deep red state, or a blue state.”

The message noted a fear among Ben, the President, and a few others — a deep concern over Democratic success. The kind of big-time victory that’s in the cards for Beto — the man who inherited millions and married into half a billion and who’s promised to rid America of the privileged elite (here).

More from the email:

They’re right to be nervous! Beto is a huge threat to the lot of them. Not just because he’s an incredible leader (and he is!) but because all of us are building a nationwide grassroots movement to take power back for the people — no matter where they live.

The Daily Wire reported that the campaign communique asked recipients for a crisp green Abe Lincoln:

If we beat Trump, it’ll be because we built the largest grassroots campaign this country has ever seen. And that all comes down to you, and what you’re willing to do. Hence the email asking you for $5.

Advice for next time: Use “when,” not “if.”

If he wins, Beto’s certainly got his work cut out for him. He can start by protecting the world from you: As he pointed out in June, you’ve starved Central Americans with your “excesses.”

And once he’s broken up all the country’s wealth (except, apparently, his own, which he’s kept), he’ll be able to move straight into fighting all y’all racists:

Molly Prince of TDW tweeted a reference to the fundraising email, and Ben Shapiro responded with a serious burn:

Yikes.

Maybe Beto prefers single percentages — like the one reflecting the wealthy upper crust he’s part of.

Well, if he doesn’t get to fix the nation’s woes, at least the dude can fix a flat:

HEADS EXPLODE: Radio Host Calls Trump “The Second Coming” of God.

Ahem. Let’s start with some very basic things here.

IF you are a CHRISTian than you have only one savior whose name happens to be Jesus Christ. There is a whole book about Him in the Bible ( mostly the New Testament but some hints in the Old Testament) and His life is pretty well documented and His influence felt over the world today.

As of this writing, the Lord has not made His reappearance known. Which means the current President of the United States is not Jesus Christ. You can call me a skeptic but I’m feeling pretty good on this hot take.

Continuing on this theme, I’m pretty sure that the vast majority of those in the faith of Judaism believe they have not yet seen the messiah. I might be a bit weak on the specifics but I feel pretty good about this call also.

I’m a CHRISTian, my Lord and Savior is Jesus Christ and I want to be 100% clear on that before I continue.

Good? Good!

Now let’s get to the main event.

Now I’m going to assume that Wayne Allyn Root got a bit excited and might have used some hyperbole here in the tweets that President Trump retweeted earlier today, where Root called Trump the “Second Coming” for the Jewish people. Either that or Wayne bumped his head a bit earlier in the Nevada daylight.

Here are the tweets…

“Thank you to Wayne Allyn Root for the very nice words. “President Trump is the greatest President for Jews and for Israel in the history of the world, not just America, he is the best President for Israel in the history of the world…and the Jewish people in Israel love him….

….like he’s the King of Israel. They love him like he is the second coming of God…But American Jews don’t know him or like him. They don’t even know what they’re doing or saying anymore. It makes no sense! But that’s OK, if he keeps doing what he’s doing, he’s good for…..

…..all Jews, Blacks, Gays, everyone. And importantly, he’s good for everyone in America who wants a job.” Wow!

If only Wayne had tweeted that last part about Trump is good for everyone who wants a job.

I doubt people in Israel think Trump is King over there but he has a better shot of that than being the Messiah. Like 100% to nothing.

I know that Donald Trump loves to promote what he is doing. That was one of the reasons he has had success over the years. If you deny that point then you are just in the emotional set that is still pissed Marco Rubio missed his chance in 2016 and you had your office in the West Wing all picked out.

This is where Trump needs to show he is joking ( the left will still blow up) over stuff like this.

Wayne is an entertaining guy but he is most famous for doing sports betting and convincing people to buy his system so you can feel good about getting beat by the spread every Sunday Night. The guy is not an expert on diety relations, because if he was he would not be referencing that the Jews thought Trump was the second coming of anything for the reasons I mentioned above.

I’m taking a guess here but part of the solid 35% that are always supporting Trump have a solid group that takes their belief in God more serious than the admiration of any elected official. There is no reason to screw with that in any way. Even if it is from a guy that lives in Sin City and can promise you his “Lock Of The Week” will make you $$$.

One last thing on this.

Heads are going to explode over the tweets above and I get that 100%. This is just a sideshow that didn’t need to happen.

The President is doing some really interesting things in regards to China. He is actually risking his Presidency by engaging in these tariffs and demanding that intellectual property theft needs to stop. He is spot-on in this regard and every administration going back to Reagan has looked the other way in dealing with China on this. This is an incredible moment and something this whole country should be behind.

Yet because of the flap caused by this, when Trump was making this point on the South Lawn before flying to Kentucky today he cracked a joke about him being the “chosen one” to take on China. Now, this important message will be lost. Tweet and video below…

Dammit, I hate it when a really good point gets lost.

So what have we learned here today?

Trump is not the messiah and not likely to be King of Israel.

If you are a CHRISTian, Jesus Christ is the Son of God and He claims the title of the Messiah.

People in Nevada named Wayne Allyn Root are great dinner guests and fun to watch a football game with but not really strong on diety assignments.

Donald Trump needs to talk THREE TIMES A DAY about what his administration is doing with China. Also, do not RT above twitter guy from Nevada unless it is the LOCK OF THE WEEK. Unless it has to do with the Detroit Lions than RT but do the opposite.

Amen.

Lindsey Graham to Omar and Tlaib: Yes, We Should Reconsider Aid to Israel – by Giving Them More

In a move that was entirely predictable from the outset, Democratic Reps. Rashida Tlaib (MI) and Ilhan Omar (MN) on Monday brought up the idea during their press conference that the U.S. should reconsider giving aid to Israel after the country barred them from entry last Thursday on security grounds.

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) pushed back on them on Twitter Tuesday, which we’ll get to in a minute. But first, a recap of what Omar said Monday about funding.

During the presser, where Tlaib broke down in tears describing how as a child she had to watch her mother go through “dehumanizing checkpoints” in order to visit relatives, Omar floated the idea of the U.S. cutting off aid to Israel:

Omar said U.S. aid to Israel should be tied to how Palestinians are treated.

“Fortunately, we the United States have a constructive role to play. We give Israel more than $3 million in aid every year. This is predicated on their being an important ally in the region and the only democracy in the Middle East, but denying a visit to duly elected members of Congress is not consistent with being an ally, and denying millions of people freedom of movement or expression or self-determination is not consistent with being a democracy,” she said.

“We must be asking, as Israel’s ally, the Netanyahu government stop the expansion of settlements on Palestinian land, and ensure full rights for Palestinians if we are to give them aid. These are not just my views. These are the views held by the range of experts, peace advocates on this issue. We know Donald Trump would love nothing more than to use this issue to pit Muslims and Jewish Americans against each other,” she added.

Whatever anyone wants to say about Omar and Tlaib (and The Squad in general), they have turned deceiving gullible people (their supporters and the media) by operating on the pretense of wanting peace and harmony between the Jews and Palestinians into almost an art form.

When Omar first announced several weeks ago that she and Tlaib were planning this trip, you better believe they both knew in advance about Israel’s anti-BDS law that forbids anyone promoting the anti-Semitic BDS movement entry into their country.

That their request to visit Israel was denied wasn’t a surprise to anyone. It certainly wasn’t to the two Congresswomen who pretend that supporting a hate group that doesn’t believe Israel has the right to exist, and accusing Jews of dual loyalty and buying off lawmakers can’t possibly be anti-Semitism.

Clearly both Omar and Tlaib manipulated the situation to their advantage, but not everyone is falling for it.

One person most definitely not falling for it is Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), who has been a vocal critic of The Squad’s tactics in the past. He responded to their push to cut off funding for Israel by saying we should actually give them more:

In two more tweets, he explained why:

Graham has taken several trips to Israel this year. One was in March to discuss the Golan Heights issue. Another was in July, where he stated he wanted “to see the lay of the land, how’s their inventory of missiles holding up, and I think we need more missile funding not less.”
