This woman really isn’t doing herself any favors at this point.
As we mentioned before, Ilhan Omar had some iiiiinteresting thoughts on Obama.
Basically… he’s “just as bad” as Trump.
“We can’t be only upset with Trump,” she said. “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.”
“And that’s not what we should be looking for anymore,” she continued. “We don’t want anybody to get away with murder because they are polished. We want to recognize the actual policies that are behind the pretty face and the smile.”
She then tried to walk her comments back by releasing the recording of the interview.
Here’s the thing…
The audio proves that’s EXACTLY what she said.
She has since DELETED her tweet.
And she’s trying a new approach.
She’s now saying she couldn’t have compared the two… because Trump ISN’T HUMAN.
According to Fox News:
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.”
No one’s really talking about it.
I wonder, however, how much the left would be talking about it if a Congressman implied that Obama wasn’t “human.” Or that she “isn’t human.”
Yeah. I’m sure that would go over well.
