U.S. President Donald Trump's recent outburst of tweets daring four Democratic members of Congress to "go back" to their countries of origin have been roundly condemned as racist by the Democrats and even some members of his own party.
Rebecca KennisonAccording to @washingtonpost Anglin (whom I’m intentionally not mentioning by handle) has fled the country of his birth, claims to have denounced his citizenship. He and his ilk are @realDonaldTrump’s champions. So who really hates America?
Pictures and song not mine all credit for those go to the rightful owners.
Rebecca KennisonMy iTunes playing on random (as I like to do), Woody Guthrie’s “Do Re Mi” just came up. The parallel between the 1930’s Dust Bowl and today’s situation — people who want a better life who are told to just go back where they came from — is truly striking.
The Supreme Court decision appeared to effectively block the government from adding a question about citizenship to the 2020 census. But President Trump has vowed to keep fighting. Jan Crawford has the latest.
Rebecca Kennison“I think it’s very important to find out if somebody’s a citizen as opposed to an illegal.” - @realDonaldTrump
This is exactly why this question cannot be asked—the motive. Many legal residents are not citizens. But everyone should just say yes.
Rapinoe and the U.S. women’s national team are exactly the type of athletes who should be celebrated by the White House, whether or not they win in France.
Rebecca Kennison“There’s an argument to be made that protest in the name of progress — in the name of looking forward — is the most patriotic thing an athlete can do.”
World Cup star Megan Rapinoe is the definition of patriotism — Trump should take notes

Two hundred fifty years of slavery. Ninety years of Jim Crow. Sixty years of separate but equal. Thirty-five years of racist housing policy. Until we reckon with our compounding moral debts, America will never be whole.
Rebecca KennisonToday’s #Juneteenth2019 discussion of reparations is so important! I want to go on record saying I would absolutely be willing to pay. This isn’t about 150 years ago. It’s about injustice, inequality, and inequity now.

Rebecca KennisonLet me see if I get this right. Iran is suffering from historical flooding — and the Trump administration sees this as the right time to tighten sanctions. WTF, @StateDept!?!
