Two top Illinois GOP officials are condemning a meme recently posted to the Facebook page of the Illinois Republican County Chairmen's Association that depicted four minority congresswomen as being "THE JIHAD SQUAD."
Democratic Rep. Rashida Tlaib of Michigan vowed to hold her ground during a speech in Detroit Monday, clearly responding to President Donald Trump's attacks on the four Democratic congresswomen of color known as "the squad."
CNN's Brian Stelter connects the dots between Fox's coverage and President Trump's attacks against newly elected congresswomen. Tara Dowdell says "this is about racial opportunism." Astead Herndon also comments on how news outlets should cover race and identity issues differently.
Amid the ongoing furor over President Donald Trump's racist tweets targeting four female members of Congress and his supporters chanting "Send her back," the President on Saturday repeatedly retweeted a vile bigot from the United Kingdom -- Katie Hopkins.
