Americans need to see this.
Minnesota Democrat Rep. Ilhan Omar decided it would be a wise idea to strike at President Donald Trump for comments made at his rally.
But considering some of the insane statements she has made in the pasty she would have been wiser to keep her opinions to herself.
She found that out quickly after the Trump 2020 campaign scorched her in response and it used her own words to do it.
“And don’t forget, we don’t let them, and we can’t let them use weapons,” the president said of the military at the border.
“We can’t. Other countries do. We can’t. I would never do that. But how do you stop these people? You can’t,” he said.
That was when someone in his crowd, in Panama City, Florida, shouted “shoot them” which garnered applause from the crowd.
“That’s only in the Panhandle you can get away with that statement,” President Trump said in a quip as he shook his head. “Only in the Panhandle.”
It did not take long for Democrats and their journalist allies to seize on the comment as if President Trump said it, and Rep. Omar was chief among them.
“This was hard to watch and listen to but unsurprising that Trump would laugh about shooting people who come to our country seeking a better life,” she said.
But President Trump’s campaign responded with no words but a video of when Omar laughed about Americans being afraid of Al Qaeda after 9/11.

In the recently surfaced video the Somali born congresswoman remembered taking a terrorism class and laughing at Americans fear.
“The thing that was interesting, in the class, was every time the professor said ‘al-Qaeda,’ his shoulders sort of went up,” she said in the video with a smile and she emphasized what was said.
“A recently discovered video shows @IlhanMN mocking Americans for their anxiety about al-Qaeda, equating US armed forces to al-Qaeda and Hezbollah,” The Reagan Battalion wrote when it shared the video.

“Al-Qaeda, you know, Hezbollah,” she told the interviewer as they both laughed at the fear of being murdered that Americans have.
“You don’t say ‘America’ with an intensity; you don’t say ‘England’ with an intensity; you don’t say ‘the army’ with an intensity,” she said.
“But you say these names because you want that word to carry weight,” she said, as if the word “England” an ally and friend, should strike fear the way Al Qaeda does.
