There’s pandemonium on The Hill and everyone is a racist. Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) became the target of President Trump for their far left and arguably anti-American views. He said they could eave if they were unhappy being here, which stoked another round of allegations that the president is a racist. I couldn’t care less, but prior to this blowup, which occurred over the weekend, AOC and her crew were duking it out with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. The Senate’s border bill, which she pushed along with moderate House Democrats, infuriated the far left contingent on the Hill. They accused Pelosi of racism, of disrespect, and for targeting them because they were women of color. AOC even alleged that the House speaker is burying her with work on her committee assignments to keep her away from the spotlight. Then, Trump tweeted.

Now, everyone and who is a Trump supporter is a racist based on their corrupt, illogical, and absurd parameters. Truth be told, just ignore them. We won the election. They lost, but they’ll create a lot of noise. These four horsewomen of the apocalypse are unpopular, their agenda is unpopular along with being total garbage, and they could hurt Democrats in 2020. They’re nationalizing the swing House races and are slowly becoming the face of the Democratic Party in these areas. Based on the polling, please keep talking, ladies.

Yet, AOC has now found her latest victim of whom she can accuse of racism: Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell who refused to call Trump a racist…because he, and the rest of the GOP, is rightfully not playing this game (via Courier Journal):

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell defended President Donald Trump, saying he is not a racist amid a rising tide of criticism over a tweet in which the president told four Democratic congresswomen to “go back" to their ancestor’s countries.

McConnell, the senior senator from Kentucky, told reporters everyone across the political spectrum should raise their decorum.

"It's about time we lowered the temperature all across the board," McConnell said during a Tuesday press conference. "All of us ought to contribute to a better level of discourse."

Trump's critics have been in overdrive in blasting the president's latest round of tweets in which he appeared to be targeting outspoken minority Democratic Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York; Ilhan Omar of Minnesota; Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts; and Rashida Tlaib of Michigan. All but Omar were born in the United States.

Right now, the House has become engulfed in chaos over this resolution against Trump’s tweets. Apparently, Pelosi broke the rules in her remarks condemning the president. In the meantime, Trump has doubled down. AOC is still going after him and she thinks this improves the Democrats’ chances of winning 2020.

Here’s the thing folks—the Democrats can’t get all high and mighty over Trump’s tweets when they couldn’t even condemn an explicit act of anti-Semitism by Omar. They fumbled the ball. And the GOP shouldn’t cave to their theatrics or the pressure applied by their allies in the media. The Democrats couldn’t condemn anti-Semitism. They pretty much gave the game away with their political games in combating things viewed as bigoted.
