Rep. Ilhan Omar is now claiming that living in the USA is like an “everyday assault” and that she feels demonized, threatened and vilified, as Bongino.com reports:
“It’s an everyday assault. Every day, a part of your identity is threatened, demonized, and vilified. Trump is tapping into an ugly part of our society and freeing its ugliness,” she told Vogue Arabia.
“It’s been a challenge to try to figure out how to continue the inclusion; how to show up every day and make sure that people who identify with all the marginalized identities I carry, feel represented,” she continued.
“It’s transitioning from the idea of constantly resisting to insisting in upholding the values we share — that this is a society that was built on the idea that you could start anew. And what that celebrates is immigrant heritage.”
As you might expect reaction to Rep. Omar’s claim was swift and brutal — but NOT just from the right-wing.
Criticism of Omar quickly put her shameful claim in the top trends — and sentiment ran a stunning 14-to-1 against her, according to social media ratings firm TotalData. Not the reaction she was expecting.
Seems that a majority of Americans are really getting sick and tired of this ungrateful woman who has been handed everything by America.

No one is forcing you to stay. Go on, and don’t let the door hit you on the way back to Somalia. #LeftistInsanity— Conservative Gal (@psalm168) April 1, 2019
This isn't Trump's America. This is OUR America. It is what you make it everyday. It can be divisive or it can be inclusive. Choose to accept people as they are and stop trying to pretend we all have to agree on everything. Harmony isn't that hard.— Simply mind blowing (@Georgia_VOL) April 1, 2019
Seeing her in Congress is an everyday assault!— waterrice (@waterrice214801) April 1, 2019
We should offer free plane tickets to anyone who feels this way. 1 way. Straight to a country of their choosing. No returns accepted. Let’s save the American loving tax payers money. #ByeFelicia— TFC207 (@TFC207) April 1, 2019
Dear Miss @IlhanMN , If your not comfortable in the USA, please feel free to move out and be comfortable somewhere else. Personally, you are an assault on my senses and you go against America. Thank you ?.— Dawn Shaeffer ?? (@JustAGirlsRF) April 1, 2019
