Representative Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib planned a fact-finding visit to Israel – which is something members of the US Congress do all the time. But Donald Trump has been working overtime to make the first female Muslim members of Congress a symbol of left-wing extremism.

MOMocrats Karoli, Aliza Worthington, and Donna Schwartz Mills have a few things to say about this, as well as the other political outrages that have erupted this month: the fight for reasonable gun laws in the wake of El Paso, Dayton, and this week’s standoff in Philadelphia, the administration’s rewrite of Emma Lazarus’ poem “The New Colussus,” storm clouds over the economy, the saga of #MoscowMitch, and more.
