President Trump’s former Attorney General Jeff Sessions got into a nasty spat with freshman Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), one of America’s most anti-American immigrants.
Jeff Sessions, who has been a fierce opponent of radicalized and illegal immigrants responded to a tweet by Rep. Ilhan Omar calling for the defunding of police departments.
The Minneapolis Police Department has proven themselves beyond reform.
It’s time to disband them and reimagine public safety in Minneapolis.

It’s curious that Ilhan Omar, an immigrant from Somalia, one of the most lawless countries in the world, is calling for the police department in the district she represents to be disbanded.
Jeff Sessions blasted Omar in a response to her tweet:
The radical Ilhan Omar, who loves nothing more than a good fight, snapped back, making false accusations (she’s an expert when it comes to making false claims against others) about comments he never made (see below for facts about Omar’s untrue claims):
“You called the NAACP Un-American and said you thought the Klu Klux Klan were okay until you learned they smoked pot. Maybe sit this one out,” she tweeted.
Former AG Sessions responded, by blasting Ilhan Omar with a few inconvenient facts, not reinterpretations of what she said, but direct quotes: You brushed off the 9/11 attacks as “some people did something.” You’ve celebrated anti-Semitism. You have a habit of rooting for the bad guys, and you should stop unfairly demonizing our brave law enforcement officers. I for one will never sit out defending those who defend us.
But it was Jeff Sessions’ final remark the stopped the radical lawmaker in her tracks. “How’s your brother, by the way?” he asked. Omar has been accused by several reliable sources of marrying her brother to commit immigration fraud, a subject she avoids like the plague. It’s no wonder, that Omar, someone who finds it impossible to stop talking, was instantly silenced by the question.
How's your brother, by the way?

There is credible evidence Ilhan Omar married her brother Ahmad Elmi (see photo from his Facebook page below) while she was still married to Ahmed Hirsi, the man she was married to when she had an affair with her current husband.
Snopes, who we do not consider a reliable source for truth, addressed both of Omar’s claims, explaining that during his confirmation hearing to become Trump’s AG. We’re using the information provided at their link because it includes direct quotes from former Senator and Attorney General Jeff Sessions.
On 3 January 2017, six members of the NAACP were arrested after staging a sit-in at the Mobile, Alabama, office of Sen. Jeff Sessions, who has been selected by President-elect Donald Trump to lead the U.S. Justice Department as Attorney General. In 1986, Sessions was nominated by President Ronald Reagan to serve as a federal judge, but Sessions’ nomination was rejected over allegations of “racial insensitivity” on his part, including accusations that Sessions had termed the NAACP “un-American.”
The claim that Sessions referred one of the nation’s oldest and most prominent civil rights organizations as “un-American” has circulated widely, though during his March 1986 confirmation hearing Sessions denied having used the term to describe the NAACP. Other key accusations levied against him included the claim he had said a white civil rights attorney who litigated a voting rights case was a “disgrace to his race” and that the NAACP and similar organizations “did more harm than good.” Sessions disclaimed having made these comments as they were characterized in the testimony of then-Justice Department civil rights lawyer, J. Gerald Hebert. According to a transcript from the hearing, Sessions said at the time:
And I was making this point, as I recall this conversation, and I said, you know, when an organization like the National Council of Churches gets involved in political activities and international relations that people consider to be un-American, they lose their moral authority and ability to function, or to speak with authority to the public because people see them as political.
And I also barreled on and said that that is true; the NAACP and other civil rights organizations, when they leave the basic discriminatory questions and start getting into matters such as foreign policy and things of that nature and other political issues — and that is probably something I should not have said, but I really did not mean any harm by it.
Another controversial comment that was raised during the hearing was one in which Sessions said of the Ku Klux Klan, “those bastards; I used to think they were OK, but they are pot smokers.” The comment was made in the context of a lynching case, while Thomas Figures was standing in the room. Sessions said the comment was made after he heard an anecdote about members of the KKK leaving a meeting and smoking marijuana and believed the comment was so ludicrous that no one would have taken it seriously:
