Ilhan Omar is in hot water after she defended a terrorist with a claim you won’t believe
Democrat Represenative Ilhan Omar (MN) can’t seem to stay out of trouble.
With every day that goes by she seems to find ways to outdo herself with the awful things she says.
And now she is in hot water after defending a terrorist with a claim you won’t believe.
Following the killing of Iranian terrorist Qasem Soleimani, the Left has been working overtime to defend him in order to attack Trump.
They are downplaying the fact he is a terrorist who was plotting attacks against the United States, despite even Barack Obama acknowledging it when he was in office.
And naturally, Ilhan Omar was at the forefront of this defense.
She came out claiming his killing was a “distraction” orchestrated by Trump, while ignoring his past terrorist acts.
The Daily Caller reports:
Democratic Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar accused President Donald Trump of killing Iranian military leader Qasem Soleimani — a designated terrorist by the U.S. government — as a “distraction” from domestic political issues.
Other left-of-center Trump critics echoed Omar’s accusation that Trump authorized the strike on Soleimani as a “distraction.”
“It’s highly possible then timing of tonight’s attack was meant as a distraction,” MSNBC contributor Joyce Alene wrote on Twitter, adding “Trump wants to distract you” from the impeachment issue.
“Given that US response to the attack that killed an American contractor was so disproportionate and predictably provocative, today’s air strike feels like attempt to create a distraction from Impeachment and build support for Trump,” CNN commentator Karen Finney tweeted.
“You have to wonder if Friday’s jobs report is so bad that it caused Trump to launch attack on Iran’s Soleimani to distract?” CNN and Daily Beast columnist Dean Obeidallah wrote.
“I’m not saying he’s starting a war to distract, I’m only saying he’s EXACTLY the kind of monster who would,” wrote liberal author Mikel Jollett.
This isn’t the first time Ilhan Omar has defended terrorists.
In 2016, she penned a letter requesting leniency for a man who pledged his allegiance to ISIS and was planning to fight for the terrorist group.
Despite this, she still remains on the House Foreign Affairs Committee.
