Jaws hit the floor after Ilhan Omar said one horrific thing about Trump on camera
Muslim Rep. Ilhan Omar is perhaps the most controversial politician in Washington, D.C.
After a series of anti-Semitic comments, many are calling for her to step down.
But instead of toning things down, she doubled down by saying something so horrific about Trump that jaws hit the floor.
To say that Democrats don’t like President Trump is an understatement.
They see him as the worst human being to walk the planet.
But Ilhan Omar doesn’t even give him that much credit.
This week a reporter questioned Omar about an article about her where she seemed to attack former President Obama as being similar to Trump when it comes to issues like immigration, only being more charismatic.
Omar told Politico:
“We can’t be only upset with Trump. … 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,” Omar says. “And that’s not what we should be looking for anymore. 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.”
A Fox News reporter questioned her about this quote, asking her if she believes Obama is the same as President Trump.
And her response was a solid no, adding that “one is human the other is not.”
Fox News’ Guerin Hays asks Ilhan Omar about last week’s Politico article: “Do you think President Obama is the same as President Trump?”
Omar: “Absolutely not. … One is human the other is not”

Omar is clearly stating that Trump is not a human, as she is a self-admitted fan of President Obama.
In fact, after the Politico article came out, she tried to claim that it was fake news, tweeting an additional audiotape of the interview saying:
“Exhibit A of how reporters distort words. I’m an Obama fan! I was saying how Trump is different from Obama, and why we should focus on policy, not politics. This is why I always tape my interviews.”
But after her followers called her out, pointing out that she wasn’t being taken out of context, she took down the tweet.
This is just another example of Rep. Omar crossing the line.
It is one thing to attack a political opponent on the issues, but to allege they are not a human at all is outright dangerous.
