Ilhan Omar, after skating off from antisemitic accusations in Congress, is now turning on President Obama for his policies that she calls similar to Trump. NY Post reports:
Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar ripped former President Barack Obama in an interview published Friday, belittling his “pretty face” and saying his agenda of hope and change was an illusion.
She cited the “caging of kids” at the Mexican border and the “droning of countries around the world” on Obama’s watch — and argued that he wasn’t much different from President Trump
“We can’t be only upset with Trump,” the freshman firebrand told Politico Magazine.
“His policies are bad, but many of the people who came before him also had really bad policies. They just were more polished than he was,” Omar said.
This should be a wake-up call for conservatives. If Progressives now think that Obama was right-wing, just how far down the path to totalitarian communism are they willing to go?
