Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) posted a list of words describing herself in effort to troll conservatives, complete with a cutesy meme of herself. The tweet was posted late Sunday with an arrogant ‘in your face’ attitude that reveals Omar’s character more than she likely thought.

Omar wrote:

I am,

Foreign born

Easily triggering conservatives, Right wing bloggers, anti Muslim bigots, tinfoil conspiracy theorists, birthers, pay me a 💵 to bash Muslims fraudsters, pro-occupation groups and every single xenophobe since 2016 😆

Dalia al-Aqidi, campaign promo.

Dalia al-Aqidi, who is running as a Republican against Omar and like her is also a refugee, Muslim and naturalized citizen. But unlike Omar, al-Aqidi is proud to be an American.

An hour after Omar posted, Al-Aqidi called out her for leaving out the most important thing to be a congresswoman, stating, “I am an American. That’s why I’m running for Congress. #MN05″

Excerpt from profile of al-Aqidi published last month by the Arab News:

“…Al-Aqidi, who was born in Iraq but sought refuge in the US in 1993, this week launched her candidacy for the Republican Party nomination for the seat that will be voted for in November elections.

…“Omar has spent her entire time in Washington sowing seeds of division and actively supporting our enemies, while also doing everything she can to prop up her own celebrity status instead of fighting for her constituents,” Al-Aqidi said.

“Even when President Trump has taken action to help her constituents, Omar condemns him simply out of personal hatred. Meanwhile, more scandal and corruption flood out of her office every week. Minnesota’s 5th district deserves someone who is fighting for them, not the radical left in DC.”

Al-Aqidi said her top issues as she enters the first round against five Republican rivals include strengthening both the district’s economy and the country’s national security, describing herself as a champion of Trump’s tough stand on immigration.

“I believe those wishing to do harm to the US are attempting to gain access to the US every day,” said Al-Aqidi, rejecting the assertion that Trump is anti-Muslim and is instead seeking to block extremists and violent criminals from entering the country.

“I support President Trump’s efforts to secure the border and fix our legal immigration system. Meanwhile, Omar wants to open up our borders and allow those same dangerous individuals to freely enter the country.”
