Instead of censuring U.S. Representative Ilhan Omar(D-MN) this week, for her multiple anti-Semitic remarks, Democrat lawmakers decided instead, decided to defend her. The dust around the controversial, anti-Semitic congresswoman, Ilhan Omar, had not even settled when the Muslim lawmaker found herself in trouble again, this time, with Democrats. In an interview with Politico reporter Tim Alberta, Omar trashed former President Barack Obama, revealing how 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.
“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.”
When Omar was called out for her comments, trashing the former Democrat demi-god, she did what she does best—she lied.

New York Magazine and Huffington Post writer Yashar Ali, who is no fan of President Trump or of the Republican Party, tweeted about Omar, along with a screenshot of her deleted tweet, saying:

@TimAlberta had characterized her comments accurately in his story.
But OOPS! Omar’s tape reveals that she said exactly what Alberta published. Did Omar think no one would listen?
Here it is:
Politico’s Tim Alberta retweeted Omar’s now-deleted tweet. He also responded to her, saying this is “how politicians use the media as a straw man to avoid owning what they said.
He continued: “Your tape…supports what I wrote 100%. So does my longer tape. It’s beyond dispute.
He also admonished her for sicking her followers on him before having the courtesy of calling him to discuss her concerns about what he wrote.
Alberta needs to better understand the mob mentality of the left if he’s going to continue to challenge them in his writings.
Exhibit A of how politicians use the media as a straw man to avoid owning what they said.
Your tape…supports what I wrote 100%. So does my longer tape. It's beyond dispute.
Next time, a phone call from your office before the Twitter ambush would be appreciated. https://t.co/eb2grgn5Cd
