Rep. Ayanna Pressley knows what it’s like to be on the receiving end of the president’s abuse. The Democratic Congresswoman is one of four politicians (collectively known as The Squad) Trump attacked in a barrage of racist tweets in July, and who he’s continued to lash out at ever since.
During an appearance on The Late Show on Tuesday, Pressley made her feelings about Trump very clear.
“I call him The Occupant,” she tells Stephen Colbert in the clip above. “He is just occupying space. We went from a president who sang ‘Amazing Grace’ to one who displays zero of it. He does not honour the integrity or the responsibility or the empathy or the compassion — and so for that reason I call him The Occupant.
“Not because I dishonour the office, but because he does.”
