Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) – at a Washington Post Live discussion about the 2020 election and progressive legislative goals for the 117th Congress – described Trump events as “Klan Rallies”.
Interviewer Jonathan Capehart, a Washington Post opinion writer, asked “…it’s another thing when that someone is the president of the United States – and he is directly attacking you, by name… how has that felt?”.
“On a personal level, I have become accustomed to standing up to bullies, in my life, so on a personal level it has not impacted to me, besides my children being exposed to it”.
Describing the last months of the campaign Omar said “…he chose to speak about me every single rally, does not matter where he was, sometimes multiple times in a day as he held his Klan Rallies”.
Her latest remarks about Trump with the “Klan Rallies” rings especially false given that the KKK was a tool for the Democrat Party to suppress Black and Republican votes in the south.
