Trump just made up fake quotes to attack Ocasio-Cortez and Ilhan Omar

President Trump’s racist smear campaign against Representative Ilhan Omar (D-MN) shows no signs of slowing down. He’s already told her and three of her fellow Congresswomen to go back to their own countries, he’s attacked her Islamic faith by accusing her of liking Al-Qaeda, and looked on with approval as a crowd at one of his rallies chanted “send her back.” He’s weaponized bigotry once again and will continue to do so in the hopes that white nationalist sentiments can propel him to electoral victory in 2020.

Despite widespread outrage and horror at his behavior, the president continues to hammer Omar, confident that his xenophobic followers will approve of what he’s doing. So far, they’ve shown nothing but enthusiasm and Republicans in the government refuse to condemn his words, proving once again how craven and power-hungry they really are.

Now, Trump has invented a brand new smear against Omar by quoting her as calling Jews “evil.” The quote is completely fabricated, but that won’t matter to his followers who are eager for any excuse to attack the Somali refugee. Trump knows the MAGA movement is completely divorced from reality and he’s exploiting it as much as he can.

The president also got in a jab at Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, one of the women of color who he told to go back to their own countries. He lied and said that AOC called the people of the United States “garbage.” What she actually said was that the American people shouldn’t be forced to settle for policy proposals that are only “10% better than garbage” which, truth be told, is being over-generous to the plutocratic agenda that Republicans are pursuing.

As the election nears Trump is going to lie more and more. He can’t run on accomplishments since he has none, so he has to invent a new reality for his voters to exist in. The only option is to vote him out of office and send a powerful rebuke to him and those who think like him.
