As Twitchy reported Thursday night, Rep. Ilhan Omar shocked no one by coming out against President Donald Trump’s “coup attempt” in Venezuela, and she was roundly schooled.

First of all, the opposition to Nicolas Maduro is hardly far-right; and second, this is in no way a coup, and especially not one orchestrated by the United States.
