DescriptionGOP Rep. Peter Roskam of Illinois criticized his Democratic opponent in the November midterm elections by likening the Democrat’s political strategy to that of ... President Donald Trump?

That’s right: Roskam has accused Chicago suburban businessman and Democratic nominee Sean Casten of “channeling” the GOP standard-bearer on Twitter with his “hyperbolic” attacks on Republicans in Congress and a comment he made that Trump and Osama bin Laden have “a tremendous amount in common,” the Chicago Tribune reported.

“The irony is: Sean, who is Donald Trump’s biggest critic, is ironically emulating him insofar as he’s advocating the politics of ridicule,” Roskam said at a joint meeting with the candidates and the Daily Herald editorial board. “And the proof of that is calling Republicans a party of deplorables. He’s retweeted that. He’s called Republican donors morons.”
