Ilhan Omar stunned the political world with her latest controversy.
This latest flare up had the potential to end Omar’s time in Congress.
And Ilhan Omar knew she made this giant mistake. Here is how she tried to save her career.
Ilhan Omar shocked Democrats when comments surfaced where Omar admitted she believed Tara Reade’s allegations of sexual assault against Joe Biden and that Democrats should replace Joe Biden as the nominee.
Omar told the British Sunday Times, “I do believe Reade,” the Minnesota Democrat told the newspaper. “Justice can be delayed, but should never be denied.” According to the interviewer, Breitbart noted, Omar added that if it was up to her, Biden would not be the Democratic nominee.
Omar knew she stepped in it and quickly raced into damage control mode with a post on social media publicly declaring her intention to vote for Joe Biden in the fall.
“Believing survivors is consistent with my values,” Omar posted on Twitter. “Yes, I endorsed against Biden and I didn’t pick him as our nominee. With that said, in this interview I did on May 6th, we talked about that and quotes aren’t always in context. I will vote for him and help him defeat Trump.”
Omar is facing a well-funded primary challenge from Anton Melton-Meaux who has raised nearly half a million dollars for his campaign.
Some Democrat Party leaders would love nothing more than to get rid of Omar.
Omar’s racism and extreme socialist views provide an inviting target for Republicans to tar the Democrats as a party out of touch with mainstream American values.
Ilhan Omar knows some Democrats have their knives out for her in the primary so she tried to clean up any perceived disloyalty to the cause of defeating Donald Trump by publicly pledging to vote for Joe Biden.
