The Freshmen Dems were interviewed by Gayle King. King asked them how they felt about the recent tweets from the president and about the divide in the Democratic party.
They were not shy about their feelings when it comes to Trump.
“KING: Quoting the president yesterday, you all are people who hate our country with a passion. You hate Jewish people. And you love enemies like al Qaeda. You hear those statements coming from the president of the United States to describe you all and you think what?
OCASIO-CORTEZ: I think that America has always been a story and America has always been about the triumph of people who fight for everyone versus those who want to preserve rights for just a select few. And there is no bottom to the barrel of vitriol that will be used and weaponized to stifle those who want to advance rights for all people in the United States.
PRESSLEY: We can talk about and spin out on hate, about hateful words which are a predictable prompt by the occupant of this White House. And I call him that not because I don’t have respect for the Oval Office.
KING: But it sounds like you don’t have respect for the Oval Office when you call the President of the United States the occupant.
PRESSLEY: No, because he is only occupying the space. He does not embody the principles, the responsibility, the grace, the integrity of a true president and so for that reason, I’m not dishonoring the office. He does every day … This is a distraction, this is a disruption on our leading and legislating and governing on the issues of care and concern and consequence of the American people.
KING: What did you think when you heard the tweet?
TLAIB: For me, I’m hearing about this from folks saying did you see what the president just said at the same time that I’m getting text messages from people saying, “Rashida, what can we do? I heard ICE is now knocking on doors without warrants.” I’m trying to represent my district, a very diverse district with 20 different ethnicities. And I’m trying to fight on their behalf, trying to make sure that they have a voice here. At the same time, I’m dealing with the biggest bully I’ve ever had to deal with in my lifetime and trying to push back on that and trying to do the job that we all have been sent here to do, which is centered around the people at home. This is a distraction. This is a person that really wants to vilify, demonize not only immigrants, but even communities of color as many of my sisters here have been talking about. It is very much a distraction, getting us unfocused.”

AOC claims she wants to advance the right of “all people in the United States” This is why she doesn’t want to aid the border. If it is overburdened the border patrol will not be as efficient in defending our border. She clearly is more concerned about the welfare of illegals living here and migrants than American citizens.
Tlaib is no better. She is talking about how she is getting calls from these illegals trying to find a way not to be deported. They are not your constituents. They are not citizens. But these freshmen Dems don’t seem to understand that they are supposed to be serving the AMERICAN people, not the illegals that have broken our laws and are now facing the consequences. So I guess anyone that wants to uphold our laws is now a bully?
