Omar Laughs, Smirks While Lawmaker Details Deaths Of American Soldiers


Radical Muslim Rep. Ilhan Omar came under
heavy fire this week after she was seen on camera laughing and smirking while her colleague
detailed the deaths of American soldiers. Omar, one of the members of the so-called
“Squad,” was seen laughing and joking around during a House Progressive Caucus press conference
about Iran at the same time Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee was talking about U.S. casualties in Iraq. “I’m very glad to say that I was part
of the 132 and also the vote for Barbara Lee’s amendment, but I think that the point of that
is that that is the same war that we’re dealing with today,” Lee said. “We never solved any problems with AUMF,
we left four thousand plus, maybe even forty four hundred dead, and over sixty thousand
who came back injured in some form and the war never ended,” Lee added. In addition to laughing, at one point, Omar
can be seen talking to Rep. Rashida Tlaib behind her, and appears to be joking and smiling,
even when she turns back towards the camera. Omar also spoke at the press conference, and
wasted little time trying to make the Iran-U.S. conflict all about herself by claiming she’s
suffering from “PTSD.” “I feel ill a little bit, because of everything
that is taking place and I think every time I hear of conversations around war, I find
myself being stricken with PTSD,” Omar said. “And I find peace knowing that I serve with
great advocates for peace and people who have shown courage against war,” Omar added. Jackson Lee is a far-left lawmaker, but even
she treated the issue of the Iraq war with a level a solemnity that apparently Omar was
incapable of. What was Omar even laughing about? Was she laughing about dead Americans? Republicans wasted little time understandably
calling Omar out for her disgusting and disturbing actions. GOP Rapid Response Director Steve Guest tweeted
that Omar’s actions were “Absolutely disgusting.” “I’m so uncomfortable watching this. What is wrong with these people?” tweeted Erielle Davidson, a staff writer for
the Federalist.
