Yesterday, Rep. Ilhan Omar, the Democrat, anti-Semite lawmaker, was being protected by her fellow Democrats in Congress, who had previously discussed passing a resolution that would censure her for multiple anti-Semitic remarks. Now, the Muslim lawmaker has just set herself up to be kicked to the curb by calling out former Democrat President Barack Obama, and revealing that he was nothing more than an empty suit who promised hope and change, but instead, gave us kids in cages at the border and drones.

New York Post reports – Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar ripped former President Barack Obama in an interview published Friday, belittling his “pretty face” and saying his agenda of hope and change was an illusion.

She cited the “caging of kids” at the Mexican border and the “droning of countries around the world” on Obama’s watch — and argued that he wasn’t much different from President Trump

“We can’t be only upset with Trump,” the freshman firebrand told Politico Magazine.

“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 said.

“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.”

Omar told Politico: “I am certainly not looking to be comfortable, and I don’t want everyone necessarily to feel comfortable around me,” she told me, a mischievous smile tugging at her lips. “I think really the most exciting things happen when people are extremely uncomfortable.”

For Omar, there is no danger in calling for Trump’s impeachment, or in advocating the abolition of Immigration and Customs Enforcement, or in pushing “Medicare for All,” or in supporting the “Green New Deal”: Hillary Clinton carried her district by 55 percentage points in 2016. The same can be said for Omar’s closest friends: Tlaib, Ocasio-Cortez and Ayanna Pressley from Massachusetts. This clique of rookie lawmakers, who call themselves the “Squad,” represent four of the safest Democratic districts in America. They have come to Congress not to pursue incremental victories, but to push for wholesale change in the government and inside their own party, secure in the knowledge that their deep-blue backyards will buffer them from whatever recoil might damage other Democrats in less ideologically insulated parts of the country.
