"I honestly have no idea what you are talking about. Can you provide some links (especially to comments about "natural born citizens"... can't find a reference to that on google)?"
Here's the video where she made the statement. www.youtube.com
I get what she was trying to say, but it was still a boneheaded statement that was fodder for her political opponents.
You need to be a little more clear on what you are trying to say if you want me to understand you. Are you saying that because Omar was not born in the US and she is part of the "team" then he was talking about her and painting the rest of them with a broad brush (assuming that because one of them was foreign, all of them were)?
Yes, he was painting with a broad brush, just like he's painting all of his political opponents with a broad brush. I believe his statement was primarily directed at Omar, and he was trying to lump the rest of the Squad in with her just like he's trying to lump the rest of the Democrats in with the Squad.
"And you are saying that you believe he would have told a group of four white American born Congresswomen to "go back" to other countries in a similar situation?"
If a group of first or second generation Scandinavian Socialists were his political opponents and were on record talking about how "ashamed" they are of the country, I have no doubt that he would have phrased the tweet the same way. (Never mind the fact that two of the four women in this case are technically "white", even though they're not Scandinavian-white.)
And he never told anyone to "go back", any more than Omar called for anyone to be deported in the tweet I linked to in #39.
