Recording the sequence of events for posterity.

1/ Trump tells four female minority members of Congress – one a naturalized citizen, the other three born in the United States – to "go back" to the countries they came from ...
2/... then @LaraLeaTrump emphasized the theme at her father-in-law's rally, warming up the mob with an "America, love it or leave" call and response (great catch by @stuartpstevens)
3/ Trump then launches into a mendacious diatribe against the same four WOC, sparking the "Send Her Back" chant.

He stops to give the mob the floor, basking in the glow of pure, unadulterated racist hatred, before continuing with his teleprompter speech.
4/ Trump then fabricates an entirely false version of events in which he was offended by his supporters' "spontaneous" chant and tried to stop it.

And his Republican shills shamelessly parrot the lie.

How stupid do they think you are?
This explains the timing of Trump's crusade (pun intended) against Rep. Ilhan Omar: to create a pretext to bar all refugees.

There is no bottom.
