Rep. Ilhan Omar Caught Lying, Admits She Spread False Story About Police

Democratic Congresswoman Ilhan Omar admitted that she may have stretched the truth during a speech at a high school.

Minneapolis, MN – Democratic Congresswoman Ilhan Omar has admitted that she embellished a story she told a group of 400 high school students about a supposed arrest that local officers made.

During a recent visit to Richfield High School, Omar claimed that she witnessed a “sweet old…African-American lady” being sentenced for stealing a $2 loaf of bread to feed her “starving five-year-old granddaughter” five years ago, according to The Washington Post.

Omar claimed that the woman was jailed for a weekend prior to being fined $80 for the theft.

She said she was in the courtroom when the sentence was handed down.

“I couldn’t control my emotions, because I couldn’t understand how a roomful of educated adults could do something so unjust,” Omar told the students.

“Bulls--t!” she screamed inside the courtroom, according to Omar.

But Omar’s lie was exposed after city officials noted that police are not even allowed to arrest shoplifters unless there is a likelihood that they will commit further crimes or act violently, The Washington Post reported.

The paper noted that the congresswoman’s story “echoed the plot of ‘Les Miserables,’” and that if there was any grain of truth in it at all, it had likely been embellished.

Upon confrontation, Omar admitted that she may have stretched the truth.

“She might have had a prior [arrest],” she said. “I’m not sure…The details might not have all matched, but that’s what I remember.”

Omar, who has touted herself as “America’s hope and the president’s nightmare,” also recently presented false information to a group of military veterans, according to The Washington Post.

She was attempting to prove to the veterans that Republicans don’t care about the troops, and alleged that approximately 45 percent of military families rely on food stamps to get by.

In actuality, less than 5 percent of military families receive food stamps, according to the Pentagon.

After Omar presented her fake story to the students, they flocked around her to express their support and take selfies, The Washington Post reported.

“I arrived at the age of 12 and learned that I was the extreme other,” Omar has proclaimed in the past. “I was black. I was Muslim. I also learned I was extremely poor and that the classless America that my father talked about didn’t exist.”

“It’s great to have a representative who looks like the people she represents,” one student told The Washington Post after Omar’s speech.

I always try to be as diplomatic and respectful as possible with comments on here. However, today this lying piece of rat feces needs to be impeached, and banned from holding any type of government office in the future. She is a race baiter and part of the problem in the racial tension in this country, that her party created.

She should be forced to go back to that school and tell them the truth, but that will not happen because she is a black muslim democrat. She needs to be removed because she can not be trusted. And before you can call me racist, I have a blended family! Not racist, just truthful!

It's time for her to GO AWAY forever! She's caused enough trouble and problems among Americans from one Coast to the other by spewing her hate and discontent since she's been elected. She DOES NOT deserve to sit in the halls of the United States Congress now or ever! She's a huge embarrassment to the institution and should be impeached immediately!!!

"Omar, who has touted herself as “America’s hope and the president’s nightmare,” also recently presented false information to a group of military veterans, according to The Washington Post."

That message needs to be changed to "She is America's nightmare" and our hope is that she is taken out of congress and out of this country as she does nothing but show treasonous contempt for this country, the President, the Republicans, the US Military, our Constitution , and our way of life. She is a vile spewing scum liar and we need to keep her in mind when considering anyone else similar resembling this POS Muslim.

She was born in Mogadishu Somalia, one of the poorest and most violent places on the planet. We, the USA, took her family into our family to help them escape the genocide.

Her dad drove a cab then began working for the postal service in a govt job. I believe she went to work for a local college after school then ran for public office. She is now one of the most powerful women in the country.

Her life has been the epitome of the American Dream yet she disrespects our values, flag and constitution.

Does she really think spending her adolescence being raped every day, toting an AK or putting on an S Vest for 3 cents a day would have been a better life for her?

She's following the way of most Muslim countries. Indoctrinate the children at an early age to hate the western way of life. The fact a school invited her to spew her lies is troubling to say the least.

She's a wolf disguised in sheep's skin...I honestly believe she is a terrorist that somehow and by a bunch of idiots, was elected into congress. She needs to be impeached or removed due to her Anti-American rhetoric and terrorist ties.

And once again, she has shown that she will say whatever she can to gain support. As a Minnesotan, I can say that she is a embarrassment to this state and I'm sure, the Democratic party. But as we have all seen, the Democrats will do and say anything they can to achieve their goals.
