In an interview with Politico, Ilhan Omar claimed that Barack Obama is a murderer and that hope and change was a mirage.
As she saw it, the party ostensibly committed to progressive values had become complicit in perpetuating the status quo. Omar says the “hope and change” offered by Barack Obama was a mirage. Recalling the “caging of kids” at the U.S.-Mexico border and the “droning of countries around the world” on Obama’s watch, she argues that the Democratic president operated within the same fundamentally broken framework as his Republican successor.
“We can’t be only upset with Trump. … His policies are bad, but many of the people who came before him also had really bad policies. They just were more polished than he was,” Omar says. “And that’s not what we should be looking for anymore. 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.”
The Democrats have run so far left they don’t even like Obama anymore. I admire Omar for being so honest however that she admitted she is mad that terrorists in the Middle East are being killed. She also admitted what Conservative Media has been saying since the beginning that Trump did not start the child separation policies at the border.
UPDATE 8:01 PM:
Exhibit A of how reporters distort words.
I’m an Obama fan! I was saying how Trump is different from Obama, and why we should focus on policy not politics.
