Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) is often wrong about, well, pretty much everything, but when she makes claims that are easily contradicted by observable facts, she gets called out for it on social media.
“Of our three branches, the judiciary or the Supreme Court has one of the lowest approval ratings,” Omar said to Democrat Sen. Mazie Hirono (HI) over video conference in an immigration virtual town hall event. “I think it’s, like, a 10% approval rating.”
In reality, Congress has the lowest approval rating of the three branches of government, and Twitter users were quick to correct her.
“I realize Ilhan Omar has never been big on facts or reality, but this is the exact opposite of true,” A.G. Hamilton wrote on Twitter. “Great deal or a lot of confidence in institutions: SCOTUS – 40%, Congress- 13%, Presidency- 39%.”
