Illhan Omar Sets Herself Up, Her Challenger Destroys Her "I Am" Statement With Three Words
No one sets themselves up for humiliation quite like MN Democrat Ilhan Omar. The freshman Den took to twitter to offer a list of everything she is-all that IS Omar, you could say. I'm sure Omar felt moved y her own self-important post but she forgot one very telling detail.
Easily triggering conservatives, Right wing bloggers, anti Muslim bigots, tinfoil conspiracy theorists, birthers, pay me a 💵 to bash Muslims fraudsters, pro-occupation groups and every single xenophobe since 2016 😆 pic.twitter.com/SffIqUT32I

Figured out what the freshman Dem forgot to list in her whimsy list? I'll give you a hint; Omar has spent her entire career making unpatriotic and pro-socialist comments. For her to leave out this detail is telling, because it shows Omar's priorities- in order.
Her Republican foe Dalia al Aqidi caught Omar's error right away and slammed her in the classiest way. Take a look:
"I am an American"
I am an American 🇺🇸

Texas Sen. Ted Cruz also noticed that the term “American” was missing from Omar’s tweet.
“More than a little odd that 'American' doesn’t make the list,” Cruz said on Twitter. “Wonder why? She is a sitting member of the US Congress. But, in today’s Leftist world of intersectionality, 'American' is deemed embarrassing & gauche.”

Aquidi, a journalist, came to the United States with her family as refugees, similar to the way Omar did from Somalia. But unlike Omar, she no longer refers to herself as a refugee.
“I came to the U.S. more than 25 years ago. So, basically, I'm not a refugee anymore. I'm not an Iraqi anymore. I'm an American. Period,” Aquidi told Fox & Friends in January.
At least three Democrats are challenging Omar in a primary election on Aug. 11. The winner of that contest will square off against one of five Republicans vying for the seat, according to Ballotpedia.
A nationwide poll conducted last year showed Omar's approval rating at 25% compared with a 34% disapproval rating.
I seriously doubt Omar get's why listing 'I am an American' would matter to voters. The out of touch Dem has made her political career off of bashing Americans, American history, and policies.
