Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) is no stranger to controversy. But this time, she may have riled up her progressive base. 

The first-term lawmaker – known for her anti-Semitic comments, radical policy prescriptions, e.g., supporting the discriminatory BDS movement and blatant disrespect to one of the few surviving World War II veterans – had shocking praise for President Trump’s handling of the coronavirus pandemic. (Fox News)

Omar, normally a staunch critic of the White House who herself has repeatedly drawn the president’s ire, went on to quote Rep. Ayanna Pressley, D-Mass., as saying “unprecedented times require unprecedented leadership” — and, Omar added, “we are seeing that in our country right now.”

“Finally, we should never let politics get in the way of good policy,” Omar concluded. “This is a great start and hope others will be part of a united front to push for good policies that will help us work through the economic anxiety the country is feeling right now.”

Omar was responding to a post by The Intercept’s Lee Fang, who noted: “Trump suspending mortgage foreclosures, demanding cash payments to Americans, now invoking the Defense Production Act to force private firms to produce needed supplies is incredible. Kind of a shell shock for anyone who reported on any economic policies in the Obama years.”

Her praise for the president was matched this week by other Democrats and left-of-center commentators. New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, on Tuesday, told reporters, “His team is on it. They’ve been responsive. … I want to say thank you.” And, CNN’s Dana Bash asserted that Trump’s new tone on the coronavirus made him the “kind of leader that people need.”

Never trust a Democrat. They are vipers and will turn on you on a dime.

I wonder how many people have figured out what the leftists are up to with all this “praise” for President Trump !? Just read the alinsky doctrine..By suddenly praising Trump (whom they still hate) the media and other leftist/communist groups are saying , look, we have always been telling the truth and this action stands to show the American people that we will offer praise when praise is due,BUT, since we now have shown you how even handed we are, you should also believe us when we continually slam the president with our lies ! Straight from the alinsky method of twisting minds to swallow communism without really knowing it !

Excellent analysis Jack Stone! The process of mental conditioning (brain washing) requires that the puppeteer rewards the puppets occasionally with “fake praise” to lure the sheep deeper into the slaughterhouse! The more criminally insane the puppeteer’s “direction” (misinformation/disinformation) the more obviously the fake ‘faint praise’ stands out. The only other thing that I would point out (as an historian & economist) is that the completely overblown overreaction to this relatively minor virus is doing enormous damage to the American economy and destroying millions of lives/families, which is of course one of the major goals of the socialist/communist attack from within America itself! Red flags should be flying at full staff any time a known socialist/communist supports our American republic/democracy~! They are simply applauding the economic & social destruction currently being forced upon America and Americans as always 😉

Excellent analogy!!
ilhan could care less about the welfare of any American, unless they came from her own corrupt, inept, dysfunctional country of Somalia….which she deeply loves.

NO, Omar, President Trump Will Not Come To Your Rescue to not be prosecuted for campaign fraud and antiSemitic screed and antiAmerica collaboration with all of America’s enemies like Iran.
