Ilhar Omar actually compared herself to George W. Bush. For the love of God, woman. Take the L.
I can’t even find the words. Check out The New York Post just Roasted Ilhan Omar with 9/11 Cover and Ilhan Omar Accused Dan Crenshaw of Inciting Violence. His Response is Perfect while I look for them.
Here’s the dumbest thing. She’s sharing an article where the media — of course — is leaping to her defense. Trying to libsplain away with the usual “Ackshully, what she meant was….” Ilhan Omar shared this valiant attempt by The Washington Post and TRIPPLED DOWN on her comments. I say this as someone who regularly endorses politicians having their phones taken from them. Does she have no advisors who can say, “Listen, maybe not?”
No, George W. Bush’s comments are not in any way, shape, or form the same as what Ilhan Omar said.
Also, CAIR was founded in 1994. September 11 happened on September 11, 2001. So the congresswoman’s original comment was even bullshit in the first place.
