Ilhan Omar Praises Trump

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.”

  1. 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 😉

    • Jack: As I started to notice libs praising our President, I thought exactly what you do eloquently wrote.

      Hope everyone can shuck, jive & tap dance around this evil Chi-Com created bio-weapon, &:

      STAY WELL, SAFE, FREE & BRAVE!

  2. 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.

  3. Never trust the Dems, I remember the day President Bush was elected Nancy said I will support the President and the next day she and her fellow Democrats turn on him and never did anything to support the President or the U S citizens. Done nothing except to obstruct since then.

  4. The Dems know that the Reps are saying, “The Dems will criticize Trump, no matter what he does”, which is the truth. In an attempt to appear fair-minded, they feel it necessary to praise Trump’s obviously correct moves in this gravely serious situation. They’re stuck. The praise will help Trump, but criticism in this instance would hurt the Dems worse than praising Trump.

  5. OK, people…. So the dems are singing praises of our President, Donald J. Trump. as a few people have said, it could be simply to say that they have been behind these moves and decisions….among other things, to get public support for themselves.
    I am not saying I disagree with everything President Trump is doing or has done, just think about all the taxpayers’ money he just signed away. And, with all the honesty in politicians these days, who knows how the money will be distributed or if it will go to the single mother of three, who lost her husband while serving his country, who works as a waitress and just makes enough to support her family in their tiny residence who just got laid off due to her restaurant closing because of this virus stuff… or will it go to the father of 3 children who never pays for child support, spends most of his time drinking and doing drugs, and works odd jobs and steals just enough to support his habit and stay alive? How many bureaucrats will touch this money before it gets to the people?
    Giving money away to the masses is democrat policy…that is where President Trump is pleasing the dems. Note – I am not saying it must not be done…. I see the hurting and I understand their situation. This thing goes all the way up the food chain. The mother of three needs to pay her rent or she’ll be out in the street. She has a child with special needs on top of everything… If she does not pay her rent, the landlord cannot pay his staff to do repairs, and the landlord cannot pay the bank for his loans…. you all know the rest.
    And, to top it all off…. all of the people (mostly young) that go to spring break to party…. when they return to their homes, all around the country, they will likely be spreading the disease further…. I think this will balloon come late April…. We are not even close to the worst point…. We enjoy freedom. It is our motto. But, with freedom comes responsibilities. When the free people are irresponsible, that is when government tries to control the members….not good for anyone…. PEOPLE need to be RESPONSIBLE or WE ALL LOSE OUR FREEDOM.

  6. Can’t trust the squad but nice of her to defend SOMETHING that our President has done.Too bad she can’t see the good he has done for our country!!
