Rep. Ilhan Omar reminds me of bullies I’ve known over the years.
They love to dish out their harassment at others, but when the tables are turned, it turns out they can’t take it.
In her three months in Congress, Omar has been busy dishing it out – targeting Israel and Jews, including White House adviser Stephen Miller.
Then she openly tried to downplay the Islamic involvement in the 9/11 terrorist attack, spurring President Trump to turn her own words against her and guess what?

Yep, Omar, who is great at dishing it out, has shown that she cannot take it when the tide has turned against her.
Liberty Nation – Someone Did Something To Omar And She’s Not Happy – Representative Ilhan Omar (D-MN) is upset because “some people did something.” But in this case, the someone was President Donald Trump and the something was posting a video of her saying those insensitive words in regard to 9/11. In fact, the freshman congresswoman is convinced the video is the reason she received so many death threats after her remark.
“Since the President’s tweet Friday evening, I have experienced an increase in direct threats on my life — many directly referencing or replying to the President’s video.”
You’d have to be way out in the backwoods without a cell phone, television, computer, or radio not to have heard or read Omar’s less than patriotic speech at the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) in which she downplayed the 9/11 terrorist attack as merely “someone did something.” Social media exploded with outrage at the belittling of such a traumatic event, which killed nearly 3,000 people on American soil. But it was the president’s WE WILL NEVER FORGET video tweet that really incensed the representative and had her claiming the sudden spike in death threats was a direct result.
It is a very powerful video that shows clips of the attack and flashbacks to Omar’s remark: …
Omar’s actions show her immaturity among other faults, but then it also places her well with many of her Democratic colleagues.
Rep. Maxine Waters is another one who is great at dishing it out at everyone she disagrees with, but when the tables are turned on her, she rarely handles it well.
In fact, that seems to be one of the qualifications of being a Democrat.
