Previous governmental candidate and Secretary of State John Kerry said on Wednesday that President Donald Trump is “afraid” of “Squad” member Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) due to the fact that her life story is more “American” than Trump’s.
” Obviously President Trump’s comments about Representative Ayanna Pressley are racist. But a lot more revolting is his defense: pretending he’s not attacking her race, however rather her lack of patriotism. Pressley’s entire life has actually been a story of patriotism: enjoying her nation a lot that she wished to help America measure up to its suitables,” Kerry composed in a letter to theBoston Globeprotecting Pressley. “A strong female raised in public housing by a brave mom who compromised to keep her safe? An activist who found in Boston a life of civil service and a decision to defend people who were underrepresented? That story determines as more “American” than any mantle this president might ever claim. No wonder Donald Trump hesitates of her.”
Pressley was Kerry’s political director and scheduler when Kerry was a senator from Massachusetts, and Kerry has safeguarded Pressley, whom he considers “household,” on numerous celebrations after Trump’s “return” tweets over the weekend about the “Team.”
Ayanna’s life story is more American than this president and his deformed worldview could ever picture. The only person who needs to “return” anywhere is @realDonaldTrump: to Trump Tower where he formulated birtherism and debased politics. (2/2)
