All hell broke loose when Ilhan Omar broke with Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on this big issue
Ilhan Omar and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez are two of the founding members of the radical “Squad.”
Their stated goal is to turn America into a socialist nation.
But now all hell broke loose when Ilhan Omar broke with Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on this big issue.
The perfectly healthy Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez caused an uproar when she posted videos to her Instagram account of doctors administering her the coronavirus vaccine as part of a continuity of government plan.
Many Americans wondered why someone at virtually no risk of a bad outcome jumped the line to receive some of the limited supply as opposed to elderly Americans who were most at risk of death.
One of those criticizing elected officials for hogging the early doses of the vaccine was none other Ilhan Omar who called politicians like Ocasio-Cortez receiving the vaccine ahead of the most vulnerable Americans “shameful.”
“It would make sense if it was age, but unfortunately it’s of importance and its shameful. We are not more important then frontline workers, teachers etc. who are making sacrifices everyday,” Omar posted on social media.
Omar said the early, limited supply of the vaccine should be prioritized to go to the Americans facing the most danger from the coronavirus.
“Which is why I won’t take it,” Omar added. “People who need it most, should get it.”
This is the first time Omar and Ocasio-Cortez found themselves in a public disagreement.
Some argue that politicians should set an example that the vaccine is safe and effective by taking it in public.
But after the shameful $2.5 trillion spending bill where Congress shafted the American with $600 checks while billions of dollars fly out of the country to fund ridiculous projects like gender studies programs in Pakistan the American people’s patience for politicians getting early access to the vaccine evaporated.
