The crowd at Trump’s rally chanting “send her back” after the President viciously and dishonestly attacked Ilhan Omar is one of the most chilling and horrifying things I’ve ever seen in politics.— Jon Favreau (@jonfavs) July 17, 2019
Trump and his crowd are perfectly aware that “Send her back” is not describing voluntary emigration https://t.co/wFqgFnOSiA— New York Magazine (@NYMag) July 18, 2019
Whether it's "send her back" or "lock her up," "there has to be some form of punishment" or "grab her by the p***y"—the throughline is contempt for women and anyone who threatens this president's fragile ego.— Kirsten Gillibrand (@SenGillibrand) July 18, 2019
He should be afraid. We are his worst nightmare. And we will beat him.
Anyone who follows me knows that I cover the far-left and that includes Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and I'm aggressive in my reporting which comes from a conservative angle— Ryan Saavedra (@RealSaavedra) July 18, 2019
With that said, chanting "send her back" at Omar is not good
Keep in mind, I am one of her harshest critics
“Send her back” is an appalling chant. Omar is a US citizen.— Guy Benson (@guypbenson) July 18, 2019
My less-catchy chant would be: “Condemn her bigotry, combat her radicalism, and investigate her seriously alleged fraud!”
I won't pretend it's easy as a Jewish-American to defend Omar. I won't pretend it's not sickening to watch the media and others excuse her bigotry and radicalism. But this is bigger than her. This is about us.— (((AG))) (@AG_Conservative) July 18, 2019
America is better than that.

You may shoot me with your words,— Ilhan Omar (@IlhanMN) July 18, 2019
You may cut me with your eyes,
You may kill me with your hatefulness,
But still, like air, I’ll rise.
