(Michael Barnes, Liberty Headlines) Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., is weighing in on President Donald Trump’s border wall, and in typical fashion has imputed the worst possible motives to those she disagrees with—regardless of facts.

On Wednesday, Omar accused Trump of attempting to build a “monument to racism.”

Omar is no stranger to outlandish comments.

The freshman congresswoman has been in office for slightly more than three months and has, among other things, caused a rift within her own party over her many anti-Semitic remarks.


While she has been soundly condemned, both directly and indirectly, by fellow House Democrats and constituents, she has garnered the support of former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke, who tweeted a picture of her last month alongside an emoji with hearts for eyes, calling her the “most important” member of Congress.

Meanwhile, according to numerous government officials, the southern border is in a state of abject chaos.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection Deputy Commissioner Robert Perez said last week that “we are beyond the breaking point” in regard to illegal immigration at the border.

Even President Barack Obama’s former Homeland Security chief, Jeh Johnson, acknowledged the emergency, saying “we are truly in a crisis.”

“On Tuesday, there were 4,000 apprehensions. I know that a thousand overwhelms the system. I cannot begin to imagine what 4,000 a day looks like, so we are truly in a crisis,” Johnson said on MSNBC’s liberal “Morning Joe.”

But according to Omar, it’s all just a “fake emergency” emanating from America’s racist president.

On Wednesday morning, Trump tweeted, that “Congress must get together and immediately eliminate the loopholes at the Border! If no action, Border, or large sections of Border, will close. This is a National Emergency!”

In response, Omar accused the president of misleading the public.

Omar had previous tweeted that the Trump administration’s border policies, which are mostly the same as the Obama administration regardless of Trump’s hawkish immigration rhetoric, were “abhorrent and inhumane.”

For good measure, she also said it’s proof of “white nationalism.”
