Minnesota Democrat and Muslim Ilhan Omar went on the attack against Barack Obama this week calling him a “pretty face” who “got away with murder,” and she means that literally, not figuratively.
Omar slammed Obama as more or less the same as Trump.
“We can’t be only upset with Trump,” the rep. told Politico Magazine.
“His policies are bad,” Omar said of Trump, “but many of the people who came before him also had really bad policies. They just were more polished than he was.”
“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,” she said of Obama.
Wow. She says this about the Democrats’ most beloved president.
Obama is the left’s god-king… and she is trashing him.
But you know what this is about, don’t you? It’s about Obama’s part in the war on terror.
Obama deployed more drone strikes than any president in history. And all his targets were Muslims. That is what Omar is carping about.
By at least one account, Obama authorized 542 drone strikes that killed an estimated 3,797 people, including 324 civilians.
Indeed, Obama reportedly once remarked at how successful he was at killing people. “Turns out I’m really good at killing people. Didn’t know that was gonna be a strong suit of mine,” he supposedly said in 2011.
So, there you have it. Omar is slamming Obama for killing terrorists.
