The media and those on the left and the right continue to discuss and breakdown the war of words between President Trump and the four freshmen Democratic members of the House of Representatives known as “the Squad” – Rashida Tlaib, Ilhan Omar, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Ayanna Pressley.
MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell, when talking about Trump’s rally in North Carolina, made a rather odd comment. She claimed, incorrectly, that “none of these members of Congress are socialists.”

Instead, Mitchell believes that there’s no truth to that claim and is simply a Republican talking point.

VOX calls Ocasi-Cortez a democratic socialist.
Even a sitting congressman of her own party referred to the entire group as socialist.
