Rep. Ilhan Omar gave a public speech at the Richfield High School recently, where according to the Washington Postshe said that five years ago, she had witnessed an example of pure injustice, which spurred her into the public office! Then, she added that she remembered a “sweet, old… African-American lady” who ended up in jail for an entire weekend for stealing a $2 loaf of bread to feed her “starving 5-year-old granddaughter.” The Post reported that she said…

After spending the weekend in jail, the woman was led into the courtroom and fined $80 — a penalty she couldn’t pay. “I couldn’t control my emotions,” Omar continued, “because I couldn’t understand how a roomful of educated adults could do something so unjust.”

“Bulls—!” she recalled yelling in the courtroom.

Laughter rippled through the auditorium, then silence.

Then, the Washington Post added that…

“Omar’s story echoed the plot of ‘Les Miserables.’ If true, it is also probably embellished. City officials said that police aren’t allowed to arrest people for shoplifting unless there’s a likelihood of violence or further crime. Typically, shoplifters are sentenced to attend a three-hour class.”

When the Washington Post requested comment from Omar, she responded to their inquiry by simply stating that she…

“may have flubbed some facts.”

The Washington Post wrote…

In an interview, Omar said she may have flubbed some facts. “She might have had a prior [arrest],” Omar said. “I’m not sure. . . . The details might not have all matched, but that’s what I remember.”

Ilhan Omar isn’t new to the embellishment of facts…aka…LYING, but the Washington Post noted that Omar had previously “flubbed some facts,” when she told a group of veterans that nearly half of all military families “rely on food stamps.” The Post reported that…

“She was trying to make the point that Republicans didn’t care for the troops. The actual number is less than 5 percent, according to Pentagon statistics.”

Imagine if it was President Trump who was “flubbing the facts,” because if it was him, the left-wing Mainstream Media would have reported it quite differently, and called it for what it truly is…LYING!
