Congresswoman Ilhan Omar (D-MN) just lashed out and told the media to never question her again. The entire incident was caught on camera, and it’s stunning. She’s on a power trip.
After being asked about President Trump’s criticism that she supports al-Qaeda, Omar said, “I will not dignify it with an answer, because I know that every single Islamophobe … who is driven by an ideology of ‘othering’ as this president is, rejoices in us responding to that and us defending ourselves.”
Omar delivered these remarks at a press conference after Trump made clear that he wasn’t going to her let or anyone else get away with anti-American, anti-Israel comments. So she decided to get on television and call him a “racist.”
It is predictable behavior. When a liberal politician can’t defend their words or actions, they go on the attack. It what’s known as blame-shifting and it happens regularly — Democrats, in particular, are notorious for it.
Omar thinks that by holding a press conference, calling Trump names, and giving non-answers to legitimate questions will make her appear tough, but it’s quite the opposite. She’s walked right into a political trap.
“I look at Omar … I hear the way she talks about al Qaeda. Al Qaeda has killed many Americans,” remarked Trump. But Omar flippantly referred to the World Trade Center terrorists as “some people,” he noted. “These are people who hate our country.”
