After everything negative she has said about America since being elected to Congress, freshman Rep. Ilhan Omar (MN) has the nerve to claim she’s suffering from PTSD after President Trump gave the order to take down the world’s top terrorist, Qasem Soleimani.
The question remains: what planet is this woman living on?
Dead terrorist means suffering to a woman who lives like a queen in the United States?
Hmm. Can she explain that one? Oh, she’s too busy divorcing her brother and divorcing another to answer that question?
Rep. Ilhan Omar complained she’s “stricken with PTSD” because of recent events in the Middle East.
This is a disgrace and offensive to our nation’s veterans who really do have PTSD after putting their life on the line to keep America safe. pic.twitter.com/twhZDuUDu0

Omar then responded to Banks with this tweet:
I survived war as a child and deal with post-traumatic stress disorder—much like many who have served or lived through war.
It’s shameful that you as a member of Congress would erase the PTSD of survivors. pic.twitter.com/QdDBKDSOCS

After President Trump gave the order to rid the world of Soleimani, AOC, Omar, and every other Democrat slammed POTUS for doing the wrong thing.
Now, they are accusing Trump of plotting potential “war crimes” simply for warning Iran that if they retaliate for the death of Qasem Soleimani, they will quickly regret it.
Once again, the two freshman lawmakers have managed to make themselves look like complete know-nothings.
From Daily Wire:
Two members of the progressive “squad,” Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), were quick to condemn President Donald Trump for potential “war crimes” Saturday night after the president threatened 52 possible targets in and around Iran, including what he called “cultural sites.”Advertisement - story continues below
The pair, of course, were not so quick to condemn Iran or slain Iranian General Qasem Soleimani, the architect of hundreds of deaths and maimings across the Middle East.
Here are Trump’s tweets:
Iran is talking very boldly about targeting certain USA assets as revenge for our ridding the world of their terrorist leader who had just killed an American, & badly wounded many others, not to mention all of the people he had killed over his lifetime, including recently….
….hundreds of Iranian protesters. He was already attacking our Embassy, and preparing for additional hits in other locations. Iran has been nothing but problems for many years. Let this serve as a WARNING that if Iran strikes any Americans, or American assets, we have…..
….targeted 52 Iranian sites (representing the 52 American hostages taken by Iran many years ago), some at a very high level & important to Iran & the Iranian culture, and those targets, and Iran itself, WILL BE HIT VERY FAST AND VERY HARD. The USA wants no more threats!
Enter AOC, who knows next to nothing about anything…
Targeting cultural sites is a war crime.
It should also go without saying that sites like Persepolis (& its PEOPLE) are not only treasures to Iranians, they are gifts to humanity.
They tell humanity’s story – that is why authoritarians target them. They want to erase history. https://t.co/C3tx6Wf8mZ

And here’s Omar’s ignorant tweet…
The President of the United States is threatening to commit war crimes on Twitter.
