As weeks go it has not been the best for the lightning-rod-of-Congress, Ilhan Omar. She fell for Trump’s provocation and got into a beef with Nancy Pelosi. She came off as ridiculous while sitting in with Rachael Maddow, has sounded childish in claims of racism, and her bid for impeaching the President has been one big fizzle. Then Trump dropped the soundbite about Omar’s possible extensive perjury issues. It has been a tough one for the Rep. from Minnesota — and it is still only Thursday.
Then in a bid to render herself even less consequential she goes ahead and posts a tweet that she felt was a real dig on the GOP. Only her choice of source material is — laughable, but in the way she intended.

So your image has taken several severe hits, and your reputation is sliced to ribbons, and you think aligning yourself with the wrestler/politician of your state is a wise choice? Yea, this is going well…

Antisemitic congresswoman quotes 9/11 truther clown.

??The same Jesse Ventura who lives off the grid in Mexico terrified about drone strikes taking him out? Yeah, he’s mentally stable.

But more than quoting a ridiculed loon, what of the message she sends here as a politician?
how does this jive with yesterdays tweet of working to love all people … ?

She's quoting Jesse Ventura. Well!! I'm impressed now.
Guess she has no intentions of serving or listening to her Republican constitutuents. They can go pound sand, one would presume.

Yep. That's definitely a good way to reach across the aisle and look like you're interested in progress and compromise.

So, with that sentiment in mind, you plan to serve ALL your constituents in MN? Republican as well as Democrats? Methinks not so much.

A valid question, right? The party that loves to preach about tolerance also loves to display intolerance. But then this being Omar that is being redundant.
Lest we forget he's also crapped on the radical left.
But LOL @ anyone who takes most of what Ventura says, to heart.

From the guy who said Navy Seals deserve to be killed. And then sued a war hero's widow. It figures you'd align with him.

Ventura is probably not the guy you want to quote on mental instability.

Yet she did exactly that. And it was amazing.
Well, that’s not going to help your favorable rating of 9%.

She appears intent on striving to take that number lower. We can only wish her luck in her efforts.
