“Do you think that President Obama is the same as President Trump?” asked Fox News’ Guerin Hays.

IT GETS WORSE: AOC Claims AIPAC ‘Coming After’ Omar, Tlaib; Slams ‘Influence of Money’ on Foreign Policy
Embattled Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez doubled-down on the Democrats’ recent string of anti-Israeli conspiracy theories Thursday afternoon; releasing a fundraising email that accused AIPAC of “coming after” Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib.
“It’s official – AIPAC is coming after Alexandria, Ilhan, and Rashida,” writes the email. “Rashida, Ilhan, and Alexandria have at times dared to question our foreign policy, and the influence of money in our political system. And now, lobbying groups across the board are working to punish them for it.”

“In this administration and all others, there should be no special relationship or status. We should actively check anti-Semitism, anti-blackness, homophobia, racism, and all other forms of bigotry,” adds the email.
IS SHE SERIOUS? Omar Says the ‘First Thing She Did’ in Congress was Fight the ‘Rise of Anti-Semitism’
Embattled Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar re-ignited the controversy surrounding her previous statements and posts on social media this week; bizarrely claiming “one of the first things” she did in Congress was fight the “rise of anti-Semitism.”
Omar was speaking with Rolling Stone when she was asked to comment on a series of anti-Semitic, anti-Israeli tirades she posted on Twitter; accusing the Jewish State of “hypnotizing” the rest of the world.
“One of the first things I did as a member-elect was to speak about the rise of anti-Semitism — and one of the first bills I cosponsored as a new member was legislation to elevate the position of a Special Envoy to combat anti-Semitism,” she told the magazine.
“I’m an organizer at heart. I’ve given an earful to others who traffic in bigotry, so I need to listen and learn. Listening and working with communities directly impacted is what will make me a better public servant,” she added.
