In an interview with The Intercept published Thursday, Rep. Ilhan Omar complained that Democrat lawmakers are so smart they’re burdened with “fighting about a lot of things” most voters “can’t understand.”
“I mean it’s the one thing that everybody accuses us of. We think we’re the smartest in the room,” she boasted. “We are very policy-oriented. We care about the details. Just today we were, you know, fighting about a lot of things that most people can’t understand, and there is that aspect of a [2020 Dem candidate Elizabeth] Warren that is exciting. She has a plan for everything.”
Her praise for Warren notwithstanding, Omar backs socialist Bernie Sanders for president, because “Sometimes you have to be reminded about the vision you truly believe in, and where your core values lie.”
Based on her short history in office, Omar’s core values appear to be socialism, sharia law, jihad, and anti-Semitism, not to mention (alleged) bigamy and immigration fraud.
