4. That's some brain-damaged comment from the POS

"All I'm saying, they want to leave, they can leave. Now, it doesn't say leave forever. It says leave if you want"

5. Speaking of "inept and corrupt",

it seems this country is giving Somalia a run for its money. Rep. Omar speaks out so that this country doesn't become what Somalia has become.
