Trump’s Being Eviscerated Online for Not Stopping the ‘Send Her Back’ Chant at NC Rally

Donald Trump continued to lob insults at four Democratic congresswomen, calling them out by name during a rally Wednesday night in North Carolina.

And how his rally crowd responded is getting a lot of backlash online.

On Sunday, he tweeted racist comments targeting Rep. Ilhan Omar, Rep. Rashida Tlaib, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Rep. Ayanna Pressley, saying they need to “go back” to their home countries.

The lawmakers — all outspoken Trump critics and women of color — are fueling “the rise of a dangerous, hard left,” Trump said Wednesday.

After blasting Omar — who came to the U.S. from Somalia as a child and is a naturalized American citizen — and accusing her of “launching vicious anti-Semitic screeds,” the crowd erupted in chants of “Send her back!” This not only echoed Trump’s tweets, but also “Lock her up!” the longtime rallying cry of Trump supporters aimed at Hillary Clinton.

Omar herself posted some words from Maya Angelou in response:

Trump just stood there while his MAGAt’s chanted, and didn’t even try to stop them, or correct them.

And Twitter had some thoughts:
