On Sunday, President Trump took to Twitter, where he called out Nancy Pelosi for being an irrational “radical” who is afraid of the leftists in her party.
President Trump is referring to those like newly elected Democrats Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib, who are under fire for anti-Semitic remarks and ties.
Fox News reported that Tlaib is under fire from Republican politicians and commentators for openly posting what they call an anti-Semitic dog whistle on Twitter, supporting groups that seek to destroy Israel.
In addition, Real Clear Politics reported that Omar wrote a tweet saying, “Israel has hypnotized the world, may Allah awaken the people and help them see the evil doings of Israel.”
Trump went on to order Pelosi to clean up the “disgusting” streets in San Fransisco.
President Trump is referring to all the human feces that is covering the sidewalks and streets in San Fransisco, thanks to the overwhelming number of homeless people living in the city.
The Guardian reported that it’s an empirical fact: San Francisco is a crappier place to live these days. Sightings of human feces on the sidewalks are now a regular occurrence; over the past 10 years, complaints about human waste have increased 400%.
People now call the city 65 times a day to report poop, and there have been 14,597 calls in 2018 alone. Last year, software engineer Jenn Wong even created a poop map of San Francisco, showing the concentration of incidents across the city.
New mayor London Breed said: “There is more feces on the sidewalks than I’ve ever seen growing up here.” In a revolting recent incident, a 20lb bag of fecal waste showed up on a street in the city’s Tenderloin district.
A city covered in poop is so disgusting it has to be almost comical. But the uptick in street defecation is the symbol of a human tragedy. People aren’t pooping on the streets because they have suddenly forgotten what a bathroom is, or unlearned basic hygiene.
The incidents are part of a broader failure of the city to provide for the basic needs of its citizens, and show the catastrophic, socially destructive effects of unchecked inequality.
