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.

She had a perfect opportunity to explain to young people why they should stay in school believe in themselves, set goals and achieve success. Instead shes spreading this garbage. so bad she was called out by both CNN and The Washington Post. A liberal really has to mess it up to be called out by those medias.

Those high school students better get tested for developmental disabilities. Some of them appear to be easily led by hucksters, or maybe they're just dumber than dog$4!t.

It must be hard work to represent deprivation from a position of a protected demographic with a favourable media bias. With this kind of victim status, her future is looking bright. She describes herself as a “nightmare”; I dare say the man who wakes up next to you concurs.

Those three harpies wouldn't be in office if so-called 'republicans' (lower case 'r' on purpose) got off their hind parts without whining "my vote won't count'!
