Minnesota Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar is blaming President Donald Trump for the “rise” in “violent crimes and other acts of hate.”
The freshman congresswoman responded Monday morning to the president’s criticism of her comments regarding the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks when she dismissed the assault on America as an instance when “some people did something.”
Omar says she has “experienced an increase in direct threats on [her] life” since the president criticized her last week.
Has she? I doubt it. She may have gotten lots of very negative responses to her screeds about israel, and her buddying up with CAIR. But, she would surely mischaracterize criticism as “threats” because lying is what leftists do.
She continued her pushback against Trump’s criticism in a Sunday statement she shared on Twitter, saying, “Violent crimes and other acts of hate by right-wing extremists and white nationalists are on the rise in this country and around the world. … They are being encouraged by the occupant of the highest office in the land.”
Oh shut up drama queen
