Amidst the daily onslaught of racist rhetoric and humanitarian atrocities plaguing the United States since even before the early stages of the 2016 election, Americans often wonder what the movie or television version of these past few years will look like when—or if—we ever come back from the insidious climate so many have become accustomed to.

Portland based media company Eleven Films literally just gave us a preview, and it's terrifying.

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.

The congresswomen—known colloquially as "the squad"—have similar stances on a number of Democratic issues and are notably further left than the majority of their colleagues. With his racist tweets, Trump threw down the gauntlet and sicced his campaign and supporters upon their reputations and their very allegiance to this country.

In the wake of President Donald Trump's racist tweets  toward four Democratic congresswomen of color, his son—Eric Trump—went on Fox & Friends to defend his father on the family's favorite network.

He repeated his father's claims that the four lawmakers—Congresswomen Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), and Ayanna Pressley (D-MA)—are full of hate, that they "say antisemitic things every single day," that they "let ICE offices get stormed," and a rogues gallery of other baseless claims. Predictably, Eric pivoted to the economy and unemployment rates, which have been steadily improving since former President Barack Obama's tenure.
