Ah, the joys of social media when it comes to exposing the hypocrisy of the left.
Twitter serves as a sort of way-back machine to further discredit the “Fraud Squad,” as one social media user characterized the four radical freshman Democrats whose “mouths outpace their brains.”
Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., Ayanna Pressley, D-Mass., and Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., were the beneficiaries of contrived media outrage last week after President Trump called them out for their contempt for America, the indignation coming from a passage saying the four freshman lawmakers should “go back” to where they came from and resolve problems there before lecturing others on how to run the country.
Being women of color, the president was accused of racism and the media ran with the narrative, BUT a 2015 tweet from the foul-mouthed lawmaker — Tlaib called Trump a “motherf–ker” her first week in office — surfaced on Tuesday of her telling Trump to go back to where he came from — as in being deported.
“Deport this *sshole!” tweeted one of the first two Muslim women to be elected to Congress.
Somehow, it’s not expected that the media will run with the hypocrisy on display, as predicted by the president’s eldest son, Donald Trump Jr.
That’s awkward. It’s like their whole narrative just disappeared… but you all know no one will cover it. https://t.co/arpYfM9wYE

Oh, but it gets even better.
In an irony of ironies, Omar too has tweeted about others being sent back “where ever you came from.”
Back in 2012, while engaged in a thread about a mayor in Maine who commenting on Somalis assimilating, saying they should “accept our culture and leave your culture at the door,” Omar noted that Somali refugees are citizens and can’t be deported.
“[W]hy don’t we deport you to where ever you came from,” she then added, although it’s not clear who the comment was directed out.

Again, don’t expect to hear peep about this from the liberal media engaged in a blood feud with Donald Trump.
While speaking at the Turning Point USA’s Student Action Summit in Washington, D.C. on Tuesday, President Trump pulled no punches in responding to a video that’s making the rounds on social media, calling Tlaib a “crazed lunatic.”
The video features an out-of-control Tlaib being tossed from a Trump campaign event in Detroit in 2016 as she screamed, “You guys are crazy!”
The younger Trump was only too happy to share video of the unhinged Democratic congresswoman in action.
Crooked called us “Deplorables.” Tlaib calls us “Crazy.” In reality we just love our country, want every American—no matter their race, religion or socioeconomic status—to have a safe & prosperous life & expect our leaders to put America First. It’s simple pic.twitter.com/qUzyfE5z5o

“But I watched her this morning, she’s vicious,” the president said. “She’s like a crazed lunatic. She’s screaming, this is before she got into Congress. Who elected her?”
“She’s screaming like a total lunatic at one of our rallies,” Trump continued. “It’s like, I’m giving a little rally and she starts screaming — and this is not a sane person folks.”
Here’s a sampling of responses to the hypocrisy from Twitter:
“When [@realDonaldTrump] said go back to where you came from there was an uproar…because every single person who’s brown or black at some point in their life in this country heard that."
"Deport this a–hole!"

I’m surprised you left this up, you shameless hypocrite. I’ll screenshot just in case. So much for playing the victim now. You should be expelled. Or as you would say, “Expel this M’fker!” #RashidatheRacist

Just like you, he’s a citizen. Guess it was less fun when you were on the other end of the “send them back” chant

Ilhan Omar once told someone “why don’t we deport you to where ever you came from.”
If she isn’t a racist for saying this in 2012 then Trump isn’t a racist for saying the same thing in 2019. https://t.co/koE5dFRWKs
