If Ilhan Omar had any self-awareness at all she would realize how bad the optics are of her spending the past week basically siding with Iran and against America.
I am a child of war. I know what the toll of it looks like. The trauma of war will never leave me.
If I don’t speak up for the children who would be displaced from conflict with Iran, who will? pic.twitter.com/W1GCExaFbT

Psst … Ilhan Omar, you’re a U.S. representative.
Act like it.
Trish Regan gave Ilhan a reality-check to end all reality-checks:
What about OUR children? What about our military’s mothers and fathers defending America overseas that Iran HAS killed or WANTS to kill? Do American kids no longer matter in a delusional world? https://t.co/CLgLT60dRq

‘What about our military’s mothers and fathers defending America overseas that Iran has killed and WANTS to kill?’ Yeah, Ilhan, what about America’s kids? We get it, she has this really important, ‘Trump bad’ narrative to push but at this point, all she’s really doing is making herself look worse.
Pray remind us Ilhan Omar, 9-11 was caused by what forces?
Oh, that’s right, Islamist terrorists…

But Iran was just being an innocent country doing innocent stuff … not funding, supporting, and enabling terrorists or anything. TRUMP BAD!
What this lady is all about is victimhood. She has no “WE” word in her vocabulary. She forgets there are millions of American’s victims of the War on Terror. Soldiers, family members of soldiers and others. The twin towers and its aftermath. Berruit, Teheran.

Seems like she should represent her constituents not some middle eastern group

Excuse me @IlhanMN, your self-righteousness is appalling! Both my grandfathers were killed in the French Indochina War. My mother lost everything as a child. I had 5 members of my family fighting in Vietnam. I was there for 5 years. The War remains with me today. I love USA.
