He behaves insultingly to Dena about her scarf till she lastly will get out of the truck, however solely after crying about how the US “enslaves individuals in jails and places them in cages.”
The unbearable leftist hysteria reaches its crescendo by episode 6 when Ramy’s mom, Maysa (Hiam Abbass), is making use of for U.S. citizenship. Whereas interviewing for citizenship, she tells the administrator she had by no means considered getting citizenship earlier than. “My husband and my youngsters, they’ve the citizenship, however with that–you know who I imply, within the White Home, that piece of shit,” she now wants to have the ability to vote. She provides how essential the Supreme Courtroom is as a result of Ruth Bader Ginsburg might die. “Ruth Bader Ginsburg, I pray for her and all the great ones on the Supreme Courtroom to remain alive.

Maysa: I’m not such as you, Trump. I’ll fuck you. I’ll fuck your pussy and seize it earlier than you seize mine or Dena’s. I’ll vote you away you piece of fucking fuck-shit. I’m right here to remain, bitch.
In case you haven’t already found out from the previous few days of riots, the left is all-rage, all-the-time. They hate our nation they usually hate anyone who voted otherwise than they did. Many far-left intersectionalists view anyone exterior of their id group as an inherent bigot.
