Ilhan Omar is a dangerous menace. Not because of her color or religion but because of her leftist ideals and her complete lack of knowledge of how the world really works. She and her buddy Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez are complete disasters.

Minnesota Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar is facing a social media backlash after accusing President Trump of backing a “coup” in the socialist-led country of Venezuela even though Nicolas Maduro’s government is considered largely illegitimate by much of the international community.

“A US backed coup in Venezuela is not a solution to the dire issues they face,” Omar tweeted. “Trump’s efforts to install a far right opposition will only incite violence and further destabilize the region. We Must support Mexico, Uruguay, & the Vatican’s efforts to facilitate a peaceful dialogue.”

The U.S. and other nations on Wednesday took the step of recognizing Juan Guaido, the opposition head of the National Assembly, as the interim president of Venezuela. Maduro was elected last year in a vote widely seen as fraudulent.

I wonder what she would consider “a solution to the dire issues they face” if it’s not rejecting socialism then what is the answer? 

Her response sparked fierce backlash on Twitter:

She supports the criminal regime in Venezuela not because she cares about the country or its people but just to oppose President Trump.
