Rep. Ilhan Omar is having a bad few weeks. She can’t seem to get her lies straight or shall I say her talking points correct.
On Friday, Politico released an interview with the Congresswoman that blasted Barack Obama, the once proclaimed savior of the Democratic Party, as a polished murderer. She also claimed that President Trump didn’t start the caging of the illegals and that he was following the practice of Obama.
For Republicans to hear that, it was sweet music because just a few hours earlier; Democrats were defending Omar and shielding her from public scorn after her anti-Semitic statements, she continues to make.
On Monday, a Fox News reporter caught up with Omar in the Congress hallways to ask her about that interview:
Freshman Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., told Fox News on Monday that it was “silly” to compare President Trump with former President Barack Obama, adding: “One is human. The other is really not.”
Omar’s comments came after she told Politico in an interview published last Friday that the Obama administration was responsible for the “caging of kids” at the U.S.-Mexico border and the “droning of countries around the world.”
“I think for many of us, we think of ourselves as Democrats. But many of the ways that our Democratic leaders have conducted themselves within the system is not one that we are all proud of,” Omar said in an audio recording of the interview which she tweeted out over the weekend. ” … And when we talk about waking people up from complacency, it’s to say that we can’t be only upset with Trump because he’s not a politician who sells us his policies in the most perfect way. His policies are bad, but many of the people who came before him also had really bad policies. They just were more polished than he was.” [excerpt via Fox News]
Omar tried to call out the Politico article and claim they took her out of context and she was glad that she recorded her interviews for truth purposes, but when Politico released the audio clip, Omar deleted that tweet and went into hiding.
Here is the confrontation meeting from Monday:
Once again, Omar didn’t say which was which did she? She didn’t even infer to who she was speaking. Most would think she was praising Obama with this statement, but you never know with this lady.
