President Trump Comes Out Swinging, Delivers Epic Burn To Rep. Ilhan Omar

Boom!

President Donald Trump has been feuding with a bunch of fiery, controversial, and extremely annoying freshmen congresswomen who are not-so-affectionately known as the “Squad.”

The group includes Reps. Ilhan Omar, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Rashida Tlaib, and Ayanna Pressley.

Trump recently fired a massive shot at Omar by claiming that he’s going to be victorious in 2020 and win a second term, all because of her.

“In 2016 I almost won Minnesota,” Trump tweeted on Tuesday. “In 2020, because of America hating anti-Semite Rep. Omar, [and] the fact that Minnesota is having its best economic year ever, I will win the State!”

The president narrowly lost the state of Minnesota in 2016 to his challenger Hillary Clinton. Clinton edged out Trump by less than two points; she obtained only 46.1% of the vote, while Trump won only 44.6%. Interestingly, voter turnout was down roughly two points in the state since the prior presidential election and nearly four points since the 2008 presidential election.

The Squad, following in the footsteps of just about every other progressive in America over the last several decades, decided to drop the “racist” card on Trump, attributing his motivation for feuding with them to his being an awful bigot.

“[Trump’s] nightmare is seeing a Somali immigrant refugee rise to Congress. His nightmare is seeing he beautiful mosaic fabric of our country welcome someone like me as their member of Congress home to Minnesota,” Omar said after she arrived to a crowd of supporters after flying back home earlier in July. “We are going to continue to be a nightmare to this president.”

The president addressed Omar’s remarks on Tuesday responding instead that “[Ocasio-Cortez] plus 3 are a Nightmare for America!”

Omar has become notorious for making anti-Semitic comments concerning Jewish folk and the nation of Israel. Like the time she invoked Allah to expose the “evil doings” of Israel. She also said that Jews in America have a dual loyalty to the United States and Israel and that any support they have of Israel is bought off.

Omar and her buddy Tlaib both stood with Hamas back in May after the terrorist organization launched 600 rockets into Israel from the Gaza border in a 24-hour period. Hamas later claimed responsibility for multiple deaths in the Jewish nation.

Sickening and sad, right?

Yet these women are active members of Congress who are responsible for helping to craft the laws that govern our nation. That’s a terrifying thought, folks.

American Music Icon Dead at 72; Was Set to Tour This Summer

Rest in peace, amigo.

When it comes to gritty guitars and even grittier songs, there is no act quite like that little ol’ band from Texas. ZZ Top mainlined American blues standards directly into the electric era of 1970’s rock, and then reinvented the genre once again with the synthesizers of the 1980’s.  From there, the band toured the world incessantly, bringing their grimy grooves and unforgettable stage presence to audiences from Dusseldorf to Delaware. Now, just weeks before the band was set to take to the road once again, one member of the holy triumvirate of honky-tonk has passed away. Dusty Hill, the bassist for ZZ Top, has died. He was 72. Billy Gibbons and Frank Beard of the Texas-based trio issued a statement to Variety on Tuesday, writing: “We are saddened by the news today that our Compadre, Dusty Hill, has passed away in his sleep at home in Houston, TX. We, along with legions of ZZ Top fans around the world, will miss your steadfast presence, your good nature and enduring commitment to providing that monumental bottom to the ‘Top’. We will forever be connected to that ‘Blues Shuffle in C.’” And then, echoing the sentiments of music fans the nation over: “You will be missed greatly, amigo,” the statement added. We couldn’t have said it better ourselves, so we’ll just leave you all with a classic. Make sure to turns those speakers up, y’all. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s5WB5ouP-8c

Mask Mandates Coming Back to Capitol Hill After CDC Switcheroo

This isn’t likely to go over well with some lawmakers.

With the “delta” variant now raging in some parts of the country, and breakthrough infections of vaccinated individuals continuing to be reported, the CDC has made a stark decision, stating that even vaccinated folks should be wearing a mask when they are indoors or in parts of the country with high COVID transmission rates. This has now prompted the House of Representatives to bring back a previously criticized policy themselves. Capitol Attending Physician Brian Monahan said late Tuesday that the House of Representatives is reinstating its mask mandate – and therefore the threat of fines to members who don’t comply – following updated guidance from the Centers from Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on the delta variant of the coronavirus. The White House also appears to be going back to mandated masks. A White House press representative was seen Tuesday swapping a sign saying people are required to wear masks if unvaccinated with another saying masks are required regardless of vaccination status. Monahan didn’t leave much room for interpretation. “For the Congress, representing a collection of individuals traveling weekly from various risk areas (both high and low rates of disease transmission), all individuals should wear a well-fitted, medical-grade filtration mask (for example an ear loop surgical mask or a KN95 mask) when they are in an interior space,” Monahan said in a letter sent to congressional staffers. The move will almost certainly see pushback from the far right side of the aisle, where the mandating of masks has been a very unpopular policy, and a point of contention in almost every arena in which it has been implemented.
