In what can only be described in Islam as a case of taqiyya, Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) deleted a tweet on Saturday in which she claimed that Politico had somehow distorted her comments on the usurper of the people’s White House, Barack Hussein Obama Soetoro Sobarkah.
In an interview that ware published on Friday, she tore into the usurper, Barack Hussein Obama Soetoro Sobarkah, claiming that his “hope and change” campaign was nothing more than an illusion and that he was nothing more than a “pretty face” who got “away with murder.”
“We can’t be only upset with Trump,” the freshman congresswoman told Politico Magazine.
“His policies are bad, but many of the people who came before him also had really bad policies,” she added. “They just were more polished than he was.”
“And that’s not what we should be looking for anymore,” Omar continued. “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.”
As I pointed out, she then took to Twitter to claim that she was taken out of context.
“Exhibit A of how reporters distort words. I’m an Obama fan! I was saying how [President] Trump is different from Obama, and why we should focus on policy not politics,” she tweeted.
However, that tweet has now been deleted after literally hundreds, if not thousands of people simply quoted the interview in context after she cried “fake news.”
Tim Alberta, the Politico chief political correspondent who interviewed Omar tweeted, “Exhibit A of how politicians use the media as a straw man to avoid owning what they said.”
Of course, you won’t find her tweet at the above link. But the internet never forgets your lies, Ilhan. You, of all people, should know this by now.
