Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn, took heat on Friday in a Democratic primary debate that saw two primary rivals attack her record in Congress, and question whether she is the "nightmare" she claims to be for President Trump.
Her quote is she's Trump's worst nightmare, but really in actuality, in many ways she's Trump's best dream, primary challenger John Mason said in a WCCO radio debate, And Trump is a racist, but really the only one benefiting from Omar is Omar in lots of things.
The virtual debate took place between Omar, Mason and Antone Melton-Meaux ahead of the Minnesota 5th Congressional Districts Aug. 11 primary.
Omar was elected to Congress and 2018 and has been one of the most controversial and outspoken figures in the group of radical left-wing freshman congresswomen known as the Squad.
But while her polarizing remarks on subjects such as Israel and police reform have won plaudits from left-wing activists and media outlets across the country, at home it is complicating her re-election bid. Melton-Meaux has outraised Omar, reporting $2 million in his campaign coffers as of the end of June, nearly double of Omars $1.1 million cash on hand.
I am called to solve big problems, and we have to be honest, the toxic nature in Washington has kept us from getting to solutions in education and healthcare, climate, because we don't need more dividers -- we need more uniters, Melton-Meaux said.
On Friday Omar defended herself from concerns about payments made to her husbands firm, which has reportedly received more than a million dollars from her campaign during the 2020 cycle. She was asked specifically about $600,000 that went to her husbands firm in the first three weeks of July.

Even though she is a rep from Minnesota?
Whoever Biden picks(or gets picked for him) as running mate will pi$$ off all the others and possibly lose their base support groupings.

And Patriotism to rival any part of the country

The only problem is the drive through the other boroughs. :)
IF we were smart as a country, all those skinnies, including her, would be crated up and sent back to Somalia. Bringing them here was One Big Azz Mistake America. But wasn’t Bush involed in this influx as well? They bring nothing of value to the USA...none.
Rep. Ilhan Omar is David Duke’s favorite member of Congress and he’s tweeted that he loves her outspoken antisemitism.

I hear it's all about the sauce.
Foghorn Leghorn: It warms, ah say, it warms the cockles of mah heart!
Omar is the logical conclusion of the Leftist cause. Would this guy be any better in real terms? Omar is at least honest about what she wants. Antone would just play it with more finesse.
Either way—good job Minneapolis!
Omar lets all her liberal craziness hang out in the open and the Dems don’t like it. They want to play the deceit game of lying to get elected and then screw the American public after getting elected. All things considered, I prefer those who wear their liberalism on their sleeve so one can see how crazy they are from the get go.
Must read link: German humanitarian learns truths about Muslims.......to her infinite regret.
She enumerates all the negatives weve observed for years.
Too bad she got woked the hard way....thru horrendous personal experiences.
BTW, she mentions Somali refugees as the worst of the worst.
The new Muslim Caucus already has a website and extensive social media. Their first conference will be featuring an array of anti-American, anti-Semitic, and Trump disparaging terror-tied icons like Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, and woman beater and Minnesota Attorney General, Keith Ellison, who resigned from his role as DNC co-chair last year.
THIS IS OUR MOMENT TO ORGANIZE AS ONE CONSTITUENCY During this historic time of a nation divided, we must defend access to the tools of democracy, which requires grassroots organizing led by Muslim Americans in Muslim communities, strategic coordination across states with year-round organizing to engage Muslim citizens to build their political power.
It requires capacity building and progress as a collective toward policy change and political education, as well as the patience to persist in the long-term work of building sustainable movements that can be linked with related fights for equality and justice within the multi-ethnic, multi-racial Muslim constituencies across America.
This is our moment to come together and organize as one constituency, bridge traditional advocacy, and policy organizations and grassroots groups to work together in building Muslim American Electoral Power at the local, state, and national level to build our power beyond 2020.
