Rep. Ilhan Omar admits she may have flubbed facts in a dramatic story she told to high school students.
Omar admitted to bungled the facts of a story she told a large group of students to illustrate the “racism, cruelty, and injustice” she’s seen in America since being accepted as a refugee.
Embellished? Yea, she told a lie to influence young minds. Desperate measures for desperate times.

Rep. Ilhan Omar admitted that she may have embellished part of the story she told to high school students in an apparent attempt to showcase racial and economic disparities in the country.
She recalled a “sweet, old… African-American lady” who was detained for a whole weekend for stealing a $2 loaf of bread to feed her “starving 5-year-old granddaughter,” according to the Washington Post, and screamed an expletive in court after the woman was fined $80 for the crime.
“I couldn’t control my emotions,” Omar told students, “because I couldn’t understand how a roomful of educated adults could do something so unjust.”
“Omar’s story echoed the plot of ‘Les Miserables.’ If true, it is also probably embellished,” the newspaper claimed. “City officials said that police aren’t allowed to arrest people for shoplifting unless there’s a likelihood of violence or further crime. Typically, shoplifters are sentenced to attend a three-hour class.” More
Yes, she lied. And she does it with such conviction! That seems to be her natural tactic. Lie first, then admit it or apologize. This strategy gets the lie ingrained as fact. Pretty clear she is so caught up in deception that she no longer knows the truth. All these liberals do is try and stoke racial hatred.
No character with no integrity. She’s a disgrace to our Congress. She should go back and admit it to the kids. That would definitely be a life lesson they would remember.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook and Twitter, and follow our friends at RepublicanLegion.com.
