It’s amazing. You have political adversaries as divided as President Trump and Governor Cuomo actually complimenting one another and publicly working together. Senators and Representatives who were at each other’s throats just two weeks ago, coming together and working diligently to pass emergency legislation to help all Americans. People across this country are going out of their way to help neighbors and strangers in need. This is who we are as Americans. When we face a common enemy like this virus, we come together, put our differences aside, and concentrate on defeating the enemy. Our differences will still be there when the pandemic is over. There is no room right now for the hateful tirades from political hacks and opportunists, no matter what side of the aisle we are on.
Rep. Ilhan Omar drew a torrent of negative responses on social media Thursday after she reacted to a pro-family Twitter post by Ivanka Trump. The president’s daughter’s post called for families to make the best of their time at home together during the coronavirus outbreak, suggesting they have a “living room camp out” along with sandwiches and other treats. “A fun activity that also brings family together for a meal!” the 38-year-old Trump wrote. The post included a past photo of Trump with two of her and husband Jared Kushner’s three children. Trump then invited her 8.1 million Twitter followers to share their own ideas using the hashtag #TogetherApart. “It won’t mitigate the fear and pain,” Trump wrote in another tweet, “but it may foster some joy. Let’s come together as a community and share ideas on how to entertain our children (and each other) and create some positive memories in an otherwise frightening moment.”Ilhan Omar slammed for response to Ivanka Trump’s ‘family together’ tweet | Fox News
