Who exactly is ‘The Squad?’

The Squad is the name for Democratic congresswomen Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-MA). All four are women of color and first-time candidates, elected in the 2018 midterms. Here is how they became Trump’s new target.

  1. Hey, Chris here — every time Trump tweets about The Squad, they become more powerful. Why then, doesn’t he ignore them?

    1. Karma Jones next time you hear AOC speak cout how many times she says “I think.” Couldn’t be further from the truth

    2. @Mj light do you have any comment on my point other than my spelling mistake and lack of content?

  2. The squad are the Michael Avenatti of politics and they are going to help Trump win a reelection by a landslide.

    1. @Melissa Pween The great thing about being a Trump supporter is that the elites kept calling them un-college educated trash but since Trump came into office the world gets to see how dumb and naive college makes some of these people. And they want the hard working tax payers to pay good money for our colleges to dumb down our youth.

    2. @macpony2571780 No. You mentioned Trump’s donations average in your first reply to me. I’d like the source of where you got those numbers from.

    3. @Florida Man New York and California does not pick the president to represent the whole country just because they have the most people living on hand outs and have votes that can be bought cheaply; Two thirds of the country voted for Trump that’s why our fore fathers came up with the electoral college so that every form of American can be represented and not just people that are living in inner cities or suburbs surrounded by people controlled by group thought or brainwashing like yourself.

    1. What policy of any of the squad members did you not like? Veteran funding, 9/11 first responder funding? Must be feeding poor AMERICAN children… that one must be the one that really irks you.

    2. @Melissa Pween Apparently these guys don’t care. They are blind to what’s around them.

    1. What is it that they do that makes you so mad.

      Is it feeding the homeless children?

      Getting more funding for the 911 first responders.

      Or is it helping the poor?

      I know its gotta be that they want to help the US vets.

      You conservatives want to see the end of the USA. All you care about is skin color and not our people and children.

    1. Go get Trumpturds aka trump cultist friends to flock to this video by posting it on FB or twitter.

  3. Washington needs major pay cuts and term limits for all politicians forty years of failed policies from politicians.

  4. The squad should add the creepy porn lawyer Avenetti to the group he was a presidental hopefull by Demorats

    1. No white males allowed in the squad. This is an anti-racist group that does not want white folks.

    1. And I haven’t seen 1 in 10 videos get a half a million views!!! best part of that is the up/down ratios!!! Half the viewers would rather go blind than sub to this BS propaganda machine!!!!!!!

  5. Hey CNN! I hear now that your ratings are lower than the home and garden channel. Ya know what that means??? People would rather watch grass grow than turn to you!!!! ROFL!!!!

  6. It will be just a matter of a short time before CNN disables the comments here.

    Comment and read while you have a chance.

    1. @Will224000
      Naw, cnn doesn’t disable their comment section like fox does. Fox does it on their controversial videos all the time while cnn leaves it open like this video.

    1. NO the Mexican camps that white trash porno sluts like you and Trump created are the only concentration camps here you lying sack of a$$ raped Republican white trash for an entire family of German blooded porno freaks !!
