Rep. Ilhan Omar Laughs When Asked If She Condemns Antifa For Violence
Rep. Ilhan Omar was asked by reporter Keean Bexte of Rebel if she condemns Antifa’s attack at an ICE facility in Tacoma, but she remained silent.
Bexte asked, “Do you feel responsible for a violent attack against an ICE facility?”
As the congresswomen got into the car, Bexte asked, “Ms. Cortez, do you feel responsible at all? Will you tell Americans not to be violent anymore? Antifa to be exact.” Omar burst into laughter.
After repeatedly asking @Ilhan and @AOC if they would condemn the Antifa firebomber, and if they felt partly responsible, the two got into their SUV and Omar (likely thinking she was off camera) burst into ear to ear laughter. Was there ever a doubt Omar hated America? pic.twitter.com/7OREVpwfSj— Keean Bexte (@TheRealKeean) July 16, 2019
Here’s the full clip:
People, particularly politicians, refuse to answer very straightforward questions when the answer will incriminate them, or worse, make them unelectable. Just like when @Ilhan could not say "I did not marry my brother", she can not say "Terrorism is bad, even if it is Antifa." pic.twitter.com/nLnime5Q44— Keean Bexte (@TheRealKeean) July 15, 2019
Maybe they didn’t have their prepared scripts handy.
