Embattled Rep. Ilhan Omar escalated her war of words with the Trump administration in an interview published Wednesday; saying the President has “the markings of a dictator” just days after defending the brutal Venezuelan regime.
“I believe that impeachment is inevitable. It also is a terrifying notion. [Vice President Mike] Pence is an ideologue, and the ideology he holds is more terrifying to me and my constituents,” Omar told Rolling Stone.

“And we have not had a full impeachment that removes the president from office. Nations struggle any time [they] overthrow a dictator, and Trump really has the markings of a dictator,” she added.

BAD COMPANY: Farrakhan Defends Ilhan Omar’s Anti-Semitic Rant, Rails Against ‘Wicked Jews’
Nation of Islam leader and notorious anti-Semite Louis Farrakhan publicly praised embattled Rep. Ilhan Omar Sunday; saying she “has nothing to apologize for” after promoting vicious stereotypes on social media.
“The wicked Jews want to use me to break up the women’s movement,” Farrakhan said during his annual Saviours’ Day event. “It ain’t about Farrakhan; it’s about women all over the world [who] have the power to change the world.”
Farrakhan then defended Omar’s twitter tirade; saying “Ms. Omar from Somalia – she started talking about ‘the Benjamins’ and they are trying to make her apologize. Sweetheart, don’t do that. Pardon me for calling you sweetheart, but you do have a sweet heart. You sure are using it to shake the government up, but you have nothing to apologize for,” Farrakhan said. “Israel and AIPAC pays off senators and congressmen to do their bidding, so you’re not lying, so if you’re not lying. Stop laying down. You were sent there by the people to shake up that corrupt House.”
OMAR ERUPTS: Ilhan Omar Defends Venezuela's Socialist Dictator, Says ‘Regime Change’ Illegal
Embattled Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar continued to raise eyebrows in Washington, DC this week; bizarrely defending Venezuela’s brutal socialist dictator and telling US lawmakers “regime change” is against international law.
“Only Congress can approve military action in Venezuela. The Trump administration must respect the checks and balances provided by the constitution. For too long and in too many places, we have ceded our Constitutional authority over foreign intervention,” she tweeted.
“We must support the Venezuelan people’s right to self-determination and not make a bad situation worse,” she added.
Opposition to intervention ≠ support for a country’s leader.

Omar made national headlines just week ago after posting multiple anti-Semitic, anti-Israeli rants on social media; suggesting American lawmakers support the Jewish State because of massive campaign contributions.
