Rep. Ilhan Omar gets exasperated at an audience member who asked her if she could condemn female genital mutilation.
She responds by saying the question is “appalling” and she is “disgusted” to be asked if she condemns “al-Qaeda,” “FGM,” and “Hamas,” saying it’s a “waste” of time.
Skirts the question by berating the questioner.

Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) explodes at an audience member who asked her if she could condemn female genital mutilation

Far-left Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) exploded at an audience member on Tuesday who asked her to condemn female genital mutilation — noting that it would be powerful if she did it — to which Omar said she was “disgusted” by the question and that it was a waste of time.
Ani Zonneveld, president of Muslims for Progressive Values, asked Omar, “Will you be able to make a statement against FGM? Because that’s an issue in Detroit, and it would be really powerful if the two Muslim Congresswomen, yourself and Rashida, would make a statement on this issue.”
Omar responded to the “appalling” question by saying: “Should I make a schedule? Like, does this need to be on repeat every 5 minutes? Should I be like, ‘so, today I forgot to condemn Al-Qaeda, so here’s the Al-Qaeda one. Today I forgot to condemn FGM so here it goes. Today I forgot to condemn Hamas so here it goes.’ It is a very frustrating question that comes up.” More
Because as a representative Rep. Ilhan Omar doesn’t feel she must answer to the people. Despite her many controversial statements and actions, she did actually vote in favor of increasing penalties for FGM. The other concerns, not so much.
She did vote in favor of a bill to make it a felony. So, while she is being obnoxious and overly sensitive, and imho wrongly going off on the questioner, she did in that sense condemn it by vote.

All she had to do is say yes. Instead she belittles the person who asked the question then continues to lecture the audience on priorities. She is not much of a politician. How did she ever get elected?

I loathe her, but she does have a point about this specific topic (FGM). She has repeatedly spoken out against it. However, her smugness in answering the question sums up her overall general demeanor perfectly. #ilhanomar #squad
