There’s nothing like watching a strong, intelligent black woman putting an ignorant cracker in his place, but it’s even better when the woman in question is Congresswoman Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and the target of her retort is the reviled eldest son of the President of the United States.
Representative Omar singed Donald Trump Jr. on Twitter today after the campaign surrogate for his equally offensive father posted a video clip of her calls for racial and economic justice and the “dismantling” of the entire system of baked-in inequality and oppression>
The problem is that Don Jr. reordered Congresswoman Omar’s words and turned them into a false premise that he then publicly asked his father’s presumed opponent in the presidential race — former Vice President Joe Biden — if he agreed with his invented misstatement of the Minnesota representative’s argument.
One listen to Rep. Omar’s actual words can prove that the dismantling of the entire American economy and political system was not what she was calling for, but neither the junior Trump nor the veteran GOP public relations shill who authored the original post he retweeted with his misleading summary of her message seems to be able to properly interpret and understand what she is really saying.
The progressive congresswoman used her reply to the tweet from the president’s spawn to put Don Jr. firmly in his place and critique the educational system that could produce — and allow to graduate — someone with such feeble comprehension skills.
Does our education system know it has failed you?
Your level of comprehension is such an embarrassment to our country, maybe someone can offer you free English classes. https://t.co/OzRDEK9jKb

As much as he might benefit from the classes that Representative Omar suggests, Trump Jr. is unlikely to value anything that he receives for free that doesn’t come in the form of taxpayer dollars.
He is his father’s son, after all, and a member of the oligarchy that controls how too many of America’s citizens live their lives through their domination of the political process in the form of their contributions to Republican campaign coffers.
It’s nice to see that Congresswoman Omar refuses to be intimidated by his deceptive propaganda and that she can dish it out to imbeciles who try to twist her words for their own pecuniary political purposes.
