Ilhan Omar is perhaps the most far-left politician ever to serve in Congress.
Her positions truly are indefensible for any reasonable American citizen.
And now she’s in hot water after getting caught in a lie you won’t believe.
Lying is nothing new for Democrats.
That’s the only way they can implement their increasingly far-left agenda.
If they openly admitted that they want to take away the freedoms of American citizens, and tax them into poverty in order to pander to illegal immigrants, nobody would vote for them.
So they lie about their positions, and about their political opponents.
Ilhan Omar did just that by trying to claim that President Trump caused the death of a nine month old child.
But in reality, that child is actually alive, and the New York Times article she posted on Twitter to make that claim makes that clear.
“A nine month old died as a direct result of Trump’s cuts to Medicaid and [the Children’s Health Insurance Program],” tweeted Omar, alongside the article. “He is one of a million children to lose healthcare. Let that sink in.”
Instead of completely removing her erroneous lie, she instead only followed up with a reply to the tweet, writing “almost died*” as her only correction.
The article discusses the mother’s visit to a hospital where she finds out her child does not have Medicaid coverage, and nothing more.
“I went to the ER thinking he had insurance,” the mother told The NYT. “If the receptionist had not seen him turning blue, she might have just said, ‘He’s not covered, so we can’t see him today.’ I do think about that.”
The woman herself isn’t well informed about the way medical care works.
A hospital is not legally allowed to turn away any patient who is experiencing a medical emergency.
Ilhan Omar is simply trying to pin a tragedy onto President Trump.
Democrats have been doing that since the day he took office.
Recently, Democrats circulated a picture of two drowned illegal immigrants face down in muddy water to attack Trump.
They claim that his immigration policy is the reason that the two died while failing to state that if Trump actually had his way, they would be blocked from entering the United States, to begin with.
And this is also far from the first outright lie Ilhan Omar has spread since the start of her political career.
In May of this year, she spread an especially disgusting lie about Israel in the wake of one of the worst attacks they had faced in a long time.
She posted a tweet in support of the non-existent state of Palestine, which was the perpetrator of the attacks, while falsely claiming that Israel occupies Gaza.
In reality, Israel withdrew all troops from Gaza in 2005, in hopes that Palestinians would move towards peace.
Instead, the terrorist group Hamas took control and has occupied the region since.
Omar was either ignorant about the facts, or was willfully pushing terrorist propaganda.
Do you think Ilhan Omar should resign?
