For the second day in a row, President Donald Trump attacked the quartet of freshmen Democratic congresswomen of colorā€”Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Rashida Tliab, Ilhan Omar, and Ayanna Pressleyā€”continuing this weekendā€™s racist tirade, in which heĀ demanded the largely American-born lawmakers ā€œgo backā€ to where they came from.

Trump overtly racist tweets, which have received virtually zero criticism from his complacent Republican colleagues, come amidst a widening rift between the progressive congresswomen and Democratic leadership. But rather than exacerbate the intra-party fight, as Trump is clearly trying to do, the presidentā€™s comments largely served to rally Democrats in their condemnation of this latest example of his blatant racism.

Trumpā€™s early morning advisors on Fox News, however, simply laughed off this latest bout of unhinged racism.
