Pelosi contacts Capitol Hill security to ensure Omar's safety after Trump tweet Article title

Source: The Hill

Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said Sunday that she spoke with the Sergeant at Arms of the House to ensure the safety of Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) after President Trump recently tweeted a video targeting the congresswoman.

“Following the president’s tweet, I spoke with the Sergeant-at-Arms to ensure that Capitol Police are conducting a security assessment to safeguard Congresswoman Omar, her family and her staff. They will continue to monitor and address the threats she faces," Pelosi said in a statement.

Pelosi also called on Trump to take down the video, which she called "disrespectful and dangerous."

“The President’s words weigh a ton, and his hateful and inflammatory rhetoric creates real danger. President Trump must take down his disrespectful and dangerous video," Pelosi said.

3. Nancy Pelosi is doing the right thing.

The exact opposite of Trump. What a petty, childish, misogynist asshole he is!

4. So the media and people claiming to be Democrats

were very busy attacking Pelosi all over the internet and on social media. Meanwhile, Nancy was out of the country but she actually did something concrete instead of seeking media attention.

6. You'd think that a president who would purposely imperil the life of a congress person

would be worth impeaching.

17. The Republican Party got in bed with the zealots & bigots decades ago.

I think they pretty much kept them under control until a black man dared to run for president & Sarah Palin stoked the embers of hate & let their bigotry out into the public sphere. And the GOP & media did nothing. They should have taken her to task. The GOP should have dropped her from the ticket, & the media should have shamed her. But they did nothing, the GOP for votes & the media for ratings. Now the bigots feel emboldened to show their hate in our public spaces.

9. Not only the Democrats, but all members of Congress should rally around a member of their ranks

to condemn this mean-spirited, dangerous and unheard of lie about Rep. Omar. Donald Trump is not only the worst person to ever hold the office of the presidency, he is a pathetic excuse for a human being, and an act like this should never be allowed to go unchallenged. If he knows he can get away with this without consequence, who knows what lengths he'll go to next.

Of course, if one of his followers kills the Congresswoman, he and his sycophants will be first to deny his words had anything to do with the man's actions. "He was just a bad actor, acting on his own -- although I can understand his frustration. #Build the Wall #NO COLLUSION! #NO OBSTRUCTION"

12. It's a dangerous game he is playing to distract us. We must not fall into this trap where he his

outrageous actions define who we are. We need to ignore him. He’s not worth it.

15. Trump would be a political idiot not to take it down now.

Imagine – heaven forbid – that something drastic soon happens to Omar. Trump would then delete the post immediately, but that in itself would be an implied admission that he prompted the attack. Only a true political hack would walk into that trap, and for no gain at all.

It's clearly an excerpt of a more complete thought, and it should be demanded that he post the entire quote if he thinks it's so damning.

16. Its another sad day for America

When a sitting president is guilty for suggesting terrorism in his own country on others with violence from his hate. The GOP are enabling terrorism by doing nothing now. They will regret this in 2020.
