Ilhan Omar retweets comedian mocking brutal assault on Rand Paul


I DON’T KNOW WHY I SAID THAT TWICE. OH, SHE DID. WHAT A DUMB DUMB. MEANWHILE, CONGRESSWOMAN ILHAN OMAR NOW SEEMS TO BE IN A GROWING FEUD WITH REPUBLICAN SENATOR RAND PAUL. OMAR’S PARKING BACKLASH AFTER SHE RETREATED AFTER TOM ARNOLD — WHICH IS BAD ENOUGH IN THE END OF ITSELF. BUT THE TWEET MARKING THE BRUTAL ASSAULT OF SENATOR PAUL, WHICH LEFT HIM WITH SIX BROKEN RIBS AND A BRUISED LUNG. SHE’S CALLING THE SENATOR WHINY AND SAYING IT’S NO WONDER THE NEIGHBOR “RIPPED OUT HAS TO PAY.” THIS COMES AFTER THE SENATOR LAST WEEK SAID HE WOULD PAY TO HAVE OMAR TRAVEL TO THE COUNTRY OF HER BIRTH, SOMALIA. WATCH THIS. BECAUSE I’M NOT SAYING WE FORCIBLY SENT HER ANYWHERE. I’M WILLING TO CONTRIBUTE TO BUY HER A TICKET TO GO VISIT SOMALIA. I THINK SHE COULD LOOK AND MAYBE LEARN A LITTLE BIT ABOUT THE DISASTER THAT IS SOMALIA, AND MAYBE AFTER SHE HAS VISITED SOMALIA FOR A WHILE SHE MIGHT COME BACK AND APPRECIATE AMERICA MORE. B2 ALL RIGHT, VERY GOOD. I KNOW SENATOR PAUL LOVES FREEDOM. HE LOVES THE CONSTITUTION AND HE LOVES HIS COUNTRY. HE ALSO KNOWS THAT THE WORDS HE CHOOSES IN TERMS OF SOMALIA AND CONGRESSWOMAN OMAR ARE GOING TO BE INCENDIARY. WAS THIS A SMART BATTLE FOR THEM TO INSERT HIMSELF INTO?>>Chris: I THINK IT’S WORTH DRAWING ATTENTION TO HER STORY, WHICH IS NOT JUST THE STORY OF AN IMMIGRANT BUT A STORY OF A REFUGEE WHO CAME TO THE UNITED STATES. BY THE WAY, SOMALIA BEING A COUNTRY WHERE A LOT OF AMERICANS GAVE THEIR LIVES TRYING TO GET FOOD AND TO FREE IT FROM TRIBAL CONTROL. GANGS WERE RUNNING THINGS. SHE COMES HERE TO THE FREEST COUNTRY IN THE WORLD, RUNS FOR CONGRESS, AND WINS? BECOMES A CELEBRITY? AND HER RESPONSES TO PROTECT OUR FREEDOM. EVEN ATTACK THE SOLDIERS WHO DIED IN SOMALIA. THAT IS THE DEFINITION OF UNGRATEFUL AND HE IS CORRECT TO SAY, “I’M NOT TRYING TO SEND HER BACK, BUT WE SHOULD EDUCATE YOURSELF ON WHAT’S GOING ON IN THIS WORLD AND THE OPPORTUNITIES SHE HAD HERE TO REFLECT ON IT.”>>Kennedy: SOMETIMES YOU NEED A LITTLE CONTEXT. SOMETIMES WE HAVE IT SO EASY THAT WE TAKE IT FOR GRANTED THAT WE LIVE IN A PLACE WHERE THERE IS MOBILITY. WHERE SOMEONE WHO HAS ACTIVE DISDAIN FOR THE UNITED STATES CAN GET ELECTED TO REPRESENT CONSTITUENTS IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES. THAT’S PRETTY REMARKABLE.>>Capri: IT IS. AMERICA IS UNIQUE AND SINGULAR IN ITS WAY THAT IT ENABLES INDIVIDUALS, IF THEY ARE CITIZENS, RIGHTFULLY SO, TO BE ABLE TO RISE THROUGH THE RANKS AND REPRESENT THEIR COMMUNITIES. I HAVE BEEN CRITICAL OF REPRESENTATIVE OMAR’S REMARKS IN REGARDS TO ISRAEL AND JEWISH PEOPLE AND A WHOLE HOST OF OTHER THINGS. I’M NOT A HUGE FAN OF THE SQUAD. I THINK EVERYBODY INVOLVED IN THIS CONVERSATION MIGHT AS WELL GO BACK TO THE PLAYGROUND, BECAUSE THEY ARE ALL ACTING INCREDIBLY MATURELY I JUST WANT TO POSE IT DOWN LIKE A RHETORICAL QUESTION. OF COURSE HE WILL HIT BACK, HE’S A COUNTER PUNCHER. I OBVIOUSLY DON’T AGREE WITH HER RETREATING THE TOM ARNOLD SAID. RAND PAUL TOOK A SHOT, SHE TOOK A SHOT BACK. SHE’S ALLOWED TO DEFEND YOURSELF. SO YOU TOO BUT HE IS SAYING GET SOME CONTEXT SO YOU CAN APPRECIATE FREEDOM, COMING FROM A PLACE THAT IS LAWLESS AND BRUTAL AND UNIMAGINABLE. WHAT SHE IS CELEBRATING IS THE FACT THAT HE WAS FELONIOUSLY ASSAULTED AND ALMOST GRAVELY INJURED. YOU HAVE TO REALIZE THERE’S A DIFFERENCE HERE BETWEEN WORDS THAT MIGHT BE OFFENSIVE AND VIOLENT ACTIONS.>>Harris: A SIMPLE QUESTION, AS WE KIND OF TRITE –>>Lisa: THERE’S RHETORICAL AND THEN THERE’S ACTUAL.>>Kennedy: SOMETIMES RHETORICAL QUESTIONS THAT DESERVE ANSWERS. GO AHEAD.>>Harris: LAWMAKERS TRYING TO OUT-NASTY ONE ANOTHER. THIS HE THINKS SHE DOESN’T REMEMBER WHAT IT IS LIKE? BECAUSE I GUARANTEE SHE DOES. I DON’T KNOW WHERE WE’RE GOING HERE. LISA?>>Lisa: TWO THINGS I FIND INTERESTING — IF YOU LOOK AT REPRESENTED OF OMAR AND RASHIDA TLAIB, THEY HAVE TWEETS THING TO DEPORT CERTAIN PEOPLE. PARTICULARLY TLAIB TALKING ABOUT PRESIDENT TRUMP. SO I FIND IT INTERESTING I’M NOT A TON OF COVERAGE ABOUT THOSE TREATS THERE, EITHER. BUT IF YOU LOOK AT SOMEONE LIKE REPRESENTATIVE OMAR AND WHAT PRESIDENT TRUMP IS TRYING TO DO, TO PAY THE DEMOCRAT PARTY AS EXTREME AND OUT OF TOUCH WITH AMERICA. HE WANTS TO TAKE THESE WOMEN — IF YOU LOOK AT SOMEBODY LIKE REPRESENTATIVE OMAR, SHE’S ESSENTIALLY AN AMERICAN SUCCESS STORY. COMING HERE AS A REFUGEE, BEING EDUCATED, GOING ON TO BECOME A MEMBER OF CONGRESS, THAT IS PART OF THE AMERICAN DREAM. I DO THINK THERE’S A SENSE OF FRUSTRATION, BECAUSE YOU HEAR SOME OF THESE COMMENTS THAT SHE HAS PREVIOUSLY MADE. IN A METALLIZING 9/11, WHICH SHE ABSOLUTELY DID. SAYING IT AS “SOME PEOPLE DID SOMETHING.” MAKING COMMENTS LIKE THAT, WHAT NANCY PELOSI HAS SAID IS BIGOTED AND DANGEROUS. WHAT SHE HAS SAID. I DON’T THINK PRESIDENT TRUMP IS WRONG TO DRAW ATTENDANT TO THE SUBSTANCE OF THAT.>>Harris: YOU CAN’T MOVE THE FACTS. AGAIN, I MAKE THE ARGUMENT THAT HE IS THE CATALYST TO GET EVERYBODY TO TALK ABOUT THE REMARKS SHE MADE. I KNOW THE DIRECTOR OF THE JAY CRC FOR THE DAKOTAS AND MINNESOTA. SAT DOWN FOR SOME TIME AGO, IT’S BEEN REPORTED THAT HE HAS HAD THOSE CONVERSATIONS WITH HER, TOO. REPRESENTATIVE OMAR, TRYING TO BRING IT FORWARD. WE GET BACK TO THE OLD “SEND HER BACK TO WHERE SHE CAME FROM,” WHEN YOU SAY TO GO TO SOMALIA. I’M SAYING YOU THAT WOMAN PROBABLY –>>Capri: HOW OLD WAS SHE? I’M SURE SHE –>>Kennedy: I KNOW HOW PEOPLE WILL CONTRAST. THEY WILL SAY AND THERE ARE PEOPLE WHO SAID PRESIDENT TRUMP SHOULD GO VISIT BALTIMORE. HE SHOULD TALK TO THE CITIZENS AND HE SHOULD –>>Harris: WELL, HE SEEMS TO KNOW MORE ABOUT IT THAN SOME PEOPLE DO IN THIS CURRENT CONVERSATION.>>Kennedy: BUT YOU ARE SAYING THIS DIFFERENCE BETWEEN TELLING THE PRESIDENT THAT IF YOU’RE GOING TO TALK ABOUT SOMETHING, SEEKS A WHAT HE TALKING ABOUT AND EXPERIENCE IT FIRSTHAND.>>Harris: I HAVEN’T CALLED ON HIM TO DO THAT.>>Capri: THIS IS ABOUT ACKNOWLEDGING THIS WOMAN PROBABLY HAS TRAUMA FROM LIVING IN A WAR-TORN PLACE.>>Kennedy: RASHIDA TLAIB IS TALKING ABOUT –>>Capri: I’M NOT TALKING ABOUT HER.>>Harris: SO OFFENSIVE.>>Kennedy: IT’S LIKE BEING
