After President Trump announced that he and First Lady Melania were diagnosed with the coronavirus Rep. Ilhan Omar was thrilled and spiked the football.
“As someone who lost my own father to this virus and seen the pain it causes, I do not wish it on anyone,” the congresswoman said Friday in a statement.
“Over 200,000 people have now died while this Administration actively ignores public health guidance and suppresses science. For months, we have been hoping for a simple acknowledgment from the President — to hear the words, ‘We will get through this together,’” Omar said. “And now we only hear those words when it is about him — not hundreds of thousands of people who have lost their lives, and the millions whose families have been touched by it because of his malfeasance.”
“Their cruelty is a direct threat to my constituents,” Omar continued. “This week, the President held a rally and a fundraiser in Minnesota, flouting the guidance of his own health agencies by failing to wear a mask. In doing so, he exposed hundreds in a state that is already suffering from an uptick in cases. Republican members of our Congressional delegation traveled with him on Air Force One and have not quarantined. In fact, they came to the Capitol today, risking the lives of additional elected leaders and staff.”
“The President of the United States and Republicans in Minnesota are actively spreading a deadly virus,” Omar’s statement concluded. “They are a risk to the public health of my constituents and our country.”
Most decent people would not spike the football even when one of their enemies is diagnosed with an illness but, not Omar.
Even MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow wished the President a quick recovery.
“God bless the president and the first lady,” Maddow said. “If you pray, please pray for their speedy and complete recovery — and for everyone infected, everywhere. This virus is horrific and merciless. No one would wish its wrath on anyone. We must get its spread under control. Enough.”
Omar Is Evil.
