Omar Strikes Again: Trump Is Not A Human

Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) made dehumanizing remarks about President Donald Trump on Monday when asked about an interview she gave last week, saying that the president was not human.

Fox News’ Guerin Hays asked Omar, who has been engulfed in an anti-Semitism scandal, about an interview she gave to Politico last week where she attacked former President Barack Obama and suggested that he was a murderer.

Omar came out after the interview was published and claimed that Politico was lying about the interview and that she did not make those comments. Omar tweeted an audio clip of that segment of the interview that she thought exonerated her but it ended up proving that she did say it. After being mocked online she deleted the tweet.

“Can you set the record straight when it comes to the Politico interview,” Hays politely asked.

Omar refused to answer.

“Do you think that Trump and Obama are the same, just different when it comes to their policies? Hays again politely asked.

Omar refused to answer.

“We understand that you refute this Politico story, could you just set the record straight so we can get your side of it?” Hays continued to politely ask.

Omar refused to answer.

“Do you think President Obama is the same as President Trump?” Hays asked.

“Absolutely not,” Omar snapped. “That is silly to even think and equate the two.”

“One is human, the other is not,” Omar continued.


Omar has espoused demonizing and hateful rhetoric for years against those she views as opponents.

In 2012, Omar promoted an anti-Semitic conspiracy theory used by Nazi Germany, tweeting: “Israel has hypnotized the world, may Allah awaken the people and help them see the evil doings of Israel.”

Omar defended her tweet multiple times on CNN, saying that she did not know how Jewish Americans would find her statements to be offensive.

“I wonder what your message is this morning … to Jewish Americans who find that deeply offensive?” CNN’s Poppy Harlow asked Omar in January.

Omar did not respond kindly to the question, saying, “Oh, that’s a really regrettable way of expressing that.”

“Um, I, I, don’t know how my comments would be offensive to Jewish Americans,” Omar continued.

During an interview in late January, Omar compared Israel to Iran, which is the world’s leading state sponsor of terrorism.

Omar falsely stated that Israel was not a democracy and suggested that they should not be allowed to exist as a Jewish state.

In February, the Democratic leadership was forced to condemn Omar over anti-Semitic remarks she made when she suggested that pro-Israel groups were bribing American politicians to be loyal to Israel.

The Daily Wire reported: “Omar pushed an anti-Semitic conspiracy theory that her ‘Jewish colleagues’ had ‘designed’ a plan to accuse her of being anti-Semitic ‘to end the debate’ on Israel.”

Omar then made anti-Semitic remarks last weekend when she accused Rep. Nita Lowey (D-NY), who is Jewish, of expecting her to have dual loyalties to Israel.

Omar’s remarks ignited another round of debate in Washington, D.C., over the growing anti-Semitism in the Democratic Party and ended up with the Democrats protecting Omar by not specifically condemning anti-Semitism in a resolution they created and passed late last week.
