As Twitchy reported earlier, the brave firefighters in the media all rushed in to protect the virtue of Rep. Ilhan Omar Wednesday after President Trump was asked a question about possible immigration fraud on her part.
Liberal propaganda site NowThis News, which just a day ago posted a video of Omar opining on the definition of true patriotism, blasted the president for bringing it up.
Trump just brought up a far-right conspiracy theory that Rep. Ilhan Omar married her brother. There is no basis to this wild accusation pic.twitter.com/rLz13vFRN2

If NowThis would read their own captions, they’d see Trump saying, “You’re asking me a question about it,” and “I know nothing about it.”
1. Trump didn’t bring it up. He was asked a question about it. 2 He said he didn’t know anything about it. 3. You suck at journalism.

He didn't bring it up.
He was asked a question about @IlhanMN 's brusband.

He didn't bring it up, a reporter did. He said he knew nothing about it. What a ridiculous tweet from you guys.
— David Williams (@tpapres) July 17, 2019
He didn't bring it up and didn't lie. Literally said he didn't know.

“I don’t know” in response to a question.

He didn’t bring it up, the reporter did liar!

He didn't accuse her. What did you not understand. He said he don't know…… he heard about it.

1) he didn’t bring it up
2) he literally said he didn’t know anything about it lol

So a reporter asked him a question about it. Means Trump brought it up.. But the reporter asked him the question on it. It is your video.

1. He was asked a question about it.
2. The liberal @StarTribune from MN has been reporting on this for some time.

Now this is literally propaganda.

But now the media narrative is that President Trump claimed that Omar married her brother. Let the outrage begin.
NowThis rushing to protect Omar LOL

NowThis continues to be a garbage liberal clickbait publisher.

You should look to perform some damage control. Marrying to skirt immigration law isn't very nice …

I LOVE this so much!!!! ????????

Thank you in helping to spread this to investigate Omar more ?

By “no basis” they mean there’s definitely a basis: https://t.co/2aw10WKezr

Trump didn’t just make this idea up out of thin air. It’s been reported several times, including Star Tribune. Do you honestly think people aren’t aware of this reporting??
— Phillipa Coleman (@ColemanPhillipa) July 17, 2019
@nowthis says there is “no basis” for the accusation. Will they however, admit they have intentionally not looked into this despite hearing about it from multiple conservative sources for months?

The far-right conspiracy theorists at the Star tribune can't be contained. https://t.co/C2HbR9E0rI

Minneapolis Star Tribune is now "far right" – https://t.co/81NRAu6GWo
— Weimdog (@weimdog) July 17, 2019
Ever heard of Minneapolis Star Tribune. They have story about and Omar won't turn over documents to prove she is not married to her brother.
— Jonathan Bauer (@scbison91) July 17, 2019
There is no basis to this wild accusation, other than she did in fact marry her brother.
— Plàya Manhattan (@PlayaManhattan) July 17, 2019
Even Snopes, who you’d think would be falling over themselves to debunk this wild conspiracy theory, can only state that it’s “unproven.”

How about the folks at Now This or any other fringe left leaning news group throughly investigate what the Star Tribune has and see what they discover. This would require actual investigative reporting on your part so good luck.

Should be pretty easy to debunk, why don’t you do it?
— Nick Name (@NicNaym) July 17, 2019
The Star-Tribune has asked for comment and not gotten it; maybe NowThis should give Omar a call and ask her to deny it flat-out once and for all. As we said earlier, they just shot a video for her to say whatever she liked, so we know they’re buds.
Is there a handy explainer on the whole “brother” angle? I haven’t followed this closely
— Allahpundit (@allahpundit) July 17, 2019
There was one at Powerline specifically on the brother angle. For all the details of the marriage fraud—which she finally admitted, and which fuel the question of *why* she faked the marriage, here: https://t.co/wOr7jY79qZ
