As Twitchy told you yesterday, Ilhan Omar stunningly and bravely voted “present” on a House resolution recognizing the Armenian Genocide. She had a really good reason for doing so.
Except no she didn’t:

Omar took a ton of heat for that — not just from her usual conservative critics, but even from many of her usual defenders. So maybe she’d like to try to explain her decision a little more clearly.
Except no she wouldn’t:
Ran into @IlhanMN on the Hill and asked if I could ask her about the Armenia genocide vote and statement and her answer was “you may not.”

And she’s usually so eager to defend her garbage positions! Weird!
Pretty sure I walked by this as it was happening, they really didn’t seem happy to have you behind them

That's some pretty weak sauce.

My definition of civic engagement is when elected officials hold themselves accountable, respond to media and do not ran away from them. pic.twitter.com/C97rOLYvKT
