What Ilhan Omar said about Mike Pence will leave you red with rage
Ilhan Omar has never been one to back down from controversy.
But now the freshman Congresswoman picked a fight that even some of her supporters think could ruin the Democrat Party.
And what Ilhan Omar said about Mike Pence will leave you red with rage.
Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) caused another ruckus when she blamed America for the crisis in Venezuela in an interview.
She wanted to deflect the blame for Venezuela’s economic collapse away from the socialist policies she supports, so she claimed the country’s ruin was the result of American sanctions.
Mike Pence responded in a Fox News interview that Omar had no idea what she was talking about.
That set her off on a social media rant promoting conspiracy theories about President Trump and Russia.
The Daily Caller reports:
Democratic Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar lashed out at Vice President Mike Pence, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and President Donald Trump Friday after facing criticism for her own comments on the chaotic situation in Venezuela.
Pompeo referred to the freshman lawmaker as “ignorant” after learning that she had blamed the United States, saying, “policies that we’ve put in place has kind of helped lead the devastation in Venezuela.
Omar responded in a tweet referencing a lengthy phone call between Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin that took place Friday. “Speaking of ‘ignorance’, maybe the @VP and @SecPompeo should spend less time worrying about mine and more time getting the Trump his briefing before he gets on the phone with Putin, or the media, or anyone,” she tweeted. “This is embarrassing.”
Litigating the Venezuelan crisis is a disaster for the Democrats.
It is obvious to all Americans that socialism is to blame for the country’s descent into anarchy.
Donald Trump would like nothing more than the 2020 election to be a contest where Trump defends American capitalism against Omar and the Democrats’ support for Venezuelan-style socialism.
