No wonder Ilhan Omar and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez are so chummy. They have so much in common! A love of socialism, respect for tyrannical dictators, making excuses for anti-Semitism … and a knack for simultaneous victimhood and self-aggrandizement.
Check out Omar’s take on a new HuffPost piece detailing her stunning bravery:
This is a president who has come to power vilifying and demonizing immigrants and refugees. He proudly said we should halt Muslims from entering our country.
It’s not a surprise that he finds his biggest nemesis in me. https://t.co/vl7tjmnSFr

Oh, she’s a nightmare, all right. Just not for the reasons she’s claiming.
Stand strong, millions are behind you ✊?

She’s not strong, though. There’s nothing strong about saying hateful, inflammatory — not to mention dishonest — things and then playing the victim card when you’re called out on it.
Ilhan Omar thinks that she is President Trump's "biggest nemesis" … https://t.co/8aNAFRiKJN

Ilhan Omar, like her fellow squad member AOC, would love nothing more than if Donald Trump sat around all day just obsessing over her. But he doesn’t. Which is why she works so damn hard to make herself into some kind of victim-heroine.

@IlhanMN you might be over flattering yourself.
— suzanne balzer (@minnesue) May 6, 2019
Might be? No, she definitely is.
Can you be more vain ?

Delusions of grandeur?

@IlhanMN ego knows no bounds! She is seriously delusional!

She seriously is. And she deserves every last ounce of criticism she gets.
Americans find their nemesis in anyone who supports terrorist organizations like Hamas.
This shouldn’t surprise you.

You've come to power demonizing loyal Americans for their faith so maybe ease up on the self righteousness.
