Katrina Pierson, one of the Trump campaign's senior advisors, is being criticized online after sharing a meme on Instagram which called Somali-American Congresswoman Ilhan Omar a "terrorist.

The meme appeared on Pierson's Instagram story, but was quickly captured and shared on Twitter.

Omar responded to this blatant Islamaphobia with words of her own.

Twitter was outraged, but not particularly shocked by Pierson's bigotry.




This is far from the first time Pierson's extremist behavior has gotten attention.


Any respectable President would not tolerate behavior like this towards a member of Congress.


On Twitter, many felt the healthiest thing to do was to simply ignore anything having to do with Pierson.


In any other administration, such behavior would be intolerable.


It's time America rejects bigoted rhetoric in all its forms.
