President Donald Trump is, once again, using his Twitter platform to insinuate that Congresswoman Ilhan Omar (D-MN) hates Americans.

Omar is one of Trump's favorite targets for Twitter tirades. He's previously tweeted that she "hate[s] Israel and all Jewish people," falsely claimed that she dismissed the September 11 attacks, and told her to "go back" to her country—prompting his supporters to chant "send her back" at a campaign rally shortly after.

Congresswoman Ilhan Omar (D-MN) is one of the first Muslim women elected to Congress in American history.

While that's an admirable achievement, it's also revealed the bigotry of some of her fellow Americans. Since her inauguration, the Somalian-American immigrant has been the subject to conspiracy theories, chants of "send her back" at Presidential rallies, and threats against her life.

Hours after tweeting that Muslim Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) "hates Israel and all Jewish people," President Donald Trump told reporters that any Jewish person who votes for a Democrat is either dumb or disloyal.

Ironically enough, his comments came as he was decrying the so-called anti-Semitism of the Democratic party.

At a Make America Great Again (MAGA) rally in North Carolina, President Donald Trump's White nationalist rhetoric was chanted by the crowd. The President initially said he discouraged the chant, but later defended the racist rhetoric as the act of patriots who really love the United States.

The crowd began a chorus of "send her back" in lieu of their usual Trump inspired "lock her up."

Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) offered to contribute to a ticket to Somalia for Congresswoman Ilhan Omar (D-MN), a former refugee and American citizen who escaped violence in her birth country of Somalia as a child. Paul's comments come weeks after President Donald Trump's racist tweets against four congresswomen of color, including Omar, suggesting they "go back" to their countries.

Speaking to the far right publication Breitbart, Paul chastised Omar for being "as ungrateful as you can get," falsely claiming that the congresswoman called the United States a terrible country.

Satire sites like The Onion found themselves in a brave new world after 2016. When an official member of the presidential administration uses terms like "alternative facts" to answer questions about lies her boss, President Donald Trump, tells about his inauguration crowd size, how does satire top that?

But in an era of absurd reality, The Onion is now making real life news. One of their satirical articles claimed 82 year-old New Jersey congressman, Democratic Representative William "Bill" Pascrell Jr., "quietly asked" Minnesota Democratic Representative Ilhan Omar to join The Squad.

It was nearly two years ago that chaos descended upon Charlottesville, Virginia when antifascist protestors clashed with Nazis and White Supremacists at the now-infamous Unite the Right rally. One Nazi is set to serve two life sentences in prison for driving his vehicle into a crowd of protestors, killing one and injuring others. Trump's infamous response? There were some "very fine people on both sides."

In response to the event, Stern, a top German news magazine founded in 1948, featured Trump on its cover giving the Nazi salute with an American flag draped over him.
