“[T]he president’s rally will be a defining moment in American history.”

For everyone who ever asked, “How could the Good German People so easily fall for Hitler?” this is how…

Others in the House need to take a good hard look at how my representative is handling this. Complaining that the Senate isn’t taking up the bills they passed is not going to get it in the next election.

Omar needs to do her work in the House
And stop adding fuel to the fire.
Why is this Op-Ed not
In Star Tribune or Pioneer Press
Where Omar district is.
Craving national spotlight
And platform
Is not why Omar was elected.
Tired of her antics.

Omar must really have trump (and Putin) worried. Got their trolls all over the inter-tubes to smear her. Even in TPM’s chatrooms! You’re wasting your time here, PacificSparkles.

Well too bad for you. She has made an important point here. Deal with it.

I will add that tR☭mp didn’t go racist on her in the Star Tribune or the Pioneer press. Why should she limit herself to regional papers?

By that logic, if the U.S. were attacked militarily we should…expel that countries ambassador? Write some Op Eds? Send a sternly worded letter?

I find your argument unconvincing at best.

Troll poetry?
Not up to the Rumsfeld standard.

The important point she made
Is she wants to be on national stage.
She’s not doing the work of her district
This is her personal political agenda
She’s as big of a narcissist as Trump
All about her
She makes evident that her focus is not
On her district
Can’t wait until she is thrown out
2020 she will be voted out
YAY!

No poetry
Not complete sentences
Never wrote a poem in my lifetime
Don’t under meter
Ode & that other type called prose

Identity politics is her work?
