Fox News personality attacks women of color for ‘pouting’ over Trump’s racist tirades
Fox News hosts at "The Five" responded to the press conference by four Congresswomen of color with outright sexism.
"Donald Trump won that press conference. Nancy and 'The Squad' lost. It looks like they want to victimize themselves even further," said host Jesse Waters, saying "We will not be silenced."
"I don’t think that’s the way to go against President Trump. You have to meet them on the same level," Waters continued, though he didn't explain what that meant. "They are continuing to play the victim and pout and now they want to impeach him for tweeting. They are saying he’s a white nationalist and he’s committing human rights violations and deporting all these people."

Urge Nation to Focus on Fixing Problems
The four progressive Democratic women who are being targeted by President Donald Trump's racist remarks held a press event Monday afternoon, showing unity and strength in the face of the president's attacks. They chose their words carefully and spoke them with dignity while blasting Trump and his white nationalist agenda.
Rep. Ayanna Pressley told reporters she will only refer to Trump as "the occupant of the White House," and urged Americans to not "take the bait" Trump is tossing.
She also said they "want to get back to" addressing the issues that led their constituents to send them to Congress, including reducing the cost of prescription drugs and reducing gun violence.
‘This is his plan to pit us against each other — to continue to enrich his friend’: Ilhan Omar demands Trump’s impeachment
Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) ripped President Donald Trump on Monday for his "blatantly racist" attacks on the four young women of color known as "The Squad."
Omar made her remarks in a press conference with Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Ayanna Pressley (D-MA), and Rashida Tlaib (D-MI).
"This country was founded on the radical idea that we are created equal and endowed by our creator with inalienable rights. And, yes, we have a long way before we fully live up to those values. It is for this reason precisely that we have to take action when a president is openly violating the oath he took to the Constitution of the United States and the core values we aspire to," Omar said.
