Two days after President Trump provoked Democrats to pass a resolution condemning him as a racist by urging the radical left "squad" of freshman House Democrats "if you are not happy here, you can leave", the president is back with another tweet storm guaranteed to send Democrats on Capitol Hill into fits of apoplexy.
In a string of tweets, Trump quotes Louisiana Senator John Kennedy, who blasts the members of the "squad" - AOC, Ayanna Pressley, Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib - as "left wing cranks" and "the four horsewomen of the apocalypse." Kennedy blasted the Congresswomen as irredeemably dumb ("they're the reason there are directions on a shampoo bottle") and lamented the fact that Democratic presidential candidates are "falling over themselves to try and agree" with them.
Kennedy starts by accusing the four women of believing that America is "wicked in its origins" and that "we are all racist and evil."
“In America, if you hate our Country, you are free to leave. The simple fact of the matter is, the four Congresswomen think that America is wicked in its origins, they think that America is even more wicked now, that we are all racist and evil.

...opinion, they’re Americans. Now I’m entitled to my opinion, & I just think they’re left wing cranks. They’re the reason there are directions on a shampoo bottle, & we should ignore them. The “squad” has moved the Democrat Party substantially LEFT, and.....— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 17, 2019
....they are destroying the Democrat Party. I’m appalled that so many of our Presidential candidates are falling all over themselves to try to agree with the four horsewomen of the apocalypse. I’m entitled to say that they’re Wack Jobs.” Louisiana Senator John Kennedy— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 17, 2019
After the lengthy quote, Trump followed up with a tweet knocking Democrats for getting nothing done on immigration, infrastructure, drug pricing or any other issue because they're too busy "fishing" for dirt on the president with their various investigations into Trump's finances, business interests etc.
The Democrats in Congress are getting nothing done, not on drug pricing, not on immigration, not on infrastructure, not on nothing! Sooo much opportunity, yet all they want to do is go “fishing.” The American people are tired of the never ending Witch Hunt, they want results now!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 17, 2019
Fundamentally, Kennedy is right: Left wingers like AOC believe America was founded by evil colonialist racists and has shifted from perpetrating one horrible atrocity to another over the course of its nearly 250-year history.
