She’s since deleted the tweet where she contested Politico’s reporting, but Rep. Ilhan Omar raised some Democrats’ eyebrows last week when she said that President Obama and President Trump were essentially cut from the same cloth, citing Obama’s “caging of kids” and his “droning of countries around the world.”
Guerin Hays of Fox News caught up with Omar and asked her if she really believes Obama and Trump are the same:
Fox News’ Guerin Hays asks Ilhan Omar about last week’s Politico article: “Do you think President Obama is the same as President Trump?”
Omar: “Absolutely not. … One is human the other is not”
Omar’s dehumanizing remarks come after she was slammed last week for anti-Semitism pic.twitter.com/zFvi4KoicY

So our president is not human

Imagine if someone called her “not human”.

Remember how Sen. John McCain was branded a racist for referring to Obama on the debate stage as “that one”?

She never stops … Well if she gets fired one day for her mouth which she most likely will she will always have a job on @CNN 👍🏻🙃

This one truly takes joy in dehumanizing people. If that isn’t the embodiment of the Democrat platform, I don’t know what is.

Aren’t our political leaders supposed to make an attempt at working together and you know. Unifying the electorate? Wtf.

So we’re free to refer to her as either with her same rationale?

I understand why people hate Trump. At least admit that he is a human for crying out loud.

@Ilhan @IlhanMN should be grateful for the opportunity this country has given to her. Instead she spits on all of us every day and yet we continue to give her the forum to do so. Here’s hoping the voters of Minnesota remove their collective heads from their backsides next time.

She’s very slowly learning the meaning of “pick your battles.”
