Ilhan Omar Takes Heat For Her Response To Ivanka Trump ‘Family Together’ Coronavirus Tweet

Published

Controversial congresswoman Rep. Ilhan Omar is taking a whole lot of well deserved flak for her reaction to the pro-family Twitter post by President Trump’s daughter Ivanka during the coronavirus pandemic sweeping the country.

Ivanka Trump’s posted was a call for families to try and make the best of the time at home together during the social distancing taking place during the coronavirus outbreak. In the post she suggested having a “living room camp out” with treats and other foods.

Trump went on to invite her 8.1 million Twitter followers to share what activities they were doing as a family to pass the time using the hashtag #TogetherApart.

Here’s more from Fox News:

“It won’t mitigate the fear and pain,” Trump wrote in another tweet, “but it may foster some joy. Let’s come together as a community and share ideas on how to entertain our children (and each other) and create some positive memories in an otherwise frightening moment.”

But Omar used the Trump post to make a political point about President Trump’s policies at the U.S.-Mexico border.

“Thinking of all the families separated forcefully by your father’s policies today,” Omar wrote.

Then, mocking Trump’s tweet, Omar invited the first daughter to “Share your ideas on how you plan to unite them.”

The Minnesota Democrat drew heavy fire from folks online who went on to suggest that perhaps the congresswoman’s recent divorce and subsequent remarriage — to a man that she was allegedly having an affair with — disqualified her from criticizing another woman’s statements on the topic of family.

“Why do you need to be so hateful?” one responder asked Omar. “Ivanka shared a simple family suggestion and you had to be spiteful and mean. Not something a true leader would do. Awful. I’m praying for this country to heal in all ways. You should try it.”

“They separated themselves when they decided to break the law,” another wrote, referring to illegal immigrant families at the border. “They need to come here LEGALLY.”

“Now? During the crisis? Free immigration now?” another wrote. “Open borders? You’ve displayed your opportunistic political virtue signaling, lack of patriotism and blatant hypocrisy once again.”

And of course, there were plenty of people who also agreed with Omar, because as we are all well aware, liberals never miss an opportunity to take a crisis and use it for political purposes to push their sickening agenda.

“Cool tent Ivanka,” one wrote. “I hope you thanked whichever one of your servants set it up for you.”

“Cool privilege on display,” another wrote.

Fortunately, not everyone in this country is consumed by hatred due to the over politicization of life we’re experiencing in this day and age.

“So many don’t realize how amazing you are,” one commenter wrote. “You’re doing a good job keeping everyone calm. We appreciate your fam.”

As so many other noted, Omar is the last person who should ever criticize someone else on the subject of family, given the sordid details of the train wreck she made of her own.

Apple Backs Down, Will Allow Parler Back on App Store

The news is seen as a major boost for the First Amendment.

Free speech is a fickle thing, and precious too.  If we’re not careful, it can be stripped away but those who hide behind the claim that a “private” company can limit your personal freedoms. Twitter, Facebook, and other social media platforms are almost always the culprits here, bending the algorithmic reach of those with whom they disagree. Enter Parler:  A free speech app where only the bare legal minimum of content would be moderated. The platform became incredibly popular with an astonishing swiftness, but soon faced trouble from companies who had previously aligned themselves with Facebook and Twitter’s more controlling stance. Apple, who had previously booted Parler from its App Store, has now relented to the Constitution. Apple has approved Parler’s return to the iOS app store following improvements the social media company made to better detect and moderate hate speech and incitement, according to a letter the iPhone maker sent to Congress on Monday. The decision clears the way for Parler, an app popular with conservatives including some members of the far right, to be downloaded once again on Apple devices. The letter — addressed to Sen. Mike Lee and Rep. Ken Buck and obtained by CNN — explained that since the app was removed from Apple’s platform in January for violations of its policies, Parler “has proposed updates to its app and the app’s content moderation practices.” On April 14, Apple’s app review team told Parler that its proposed changes were sufficient, the letter continued. Now, all Parler needs to do is to flip the switch. The news is seen as a major boost for the First Amendment.

WATCH: NC Man Slings Rabid Bobcat Across His Front Yard

WOW!

For many North Carolinians, neighborhood living brings with it the peace of mind that the most invasive animals you might have to deal with are squirrels who are trying to rest in your attic, or raccoons hoping to fatten up from your trash can.  The Tar Heel state has some bears, sure, but they’re not often the pestering or dangerous type like you might see in the Pacific Northwest or parts of California. But one man this week got up close and personal with a seriously frightening creature this week, after it lunged at his wife from underneath their car. A disturbing video captures the moment a rabid bobcat attacks a North Carolina woman—and the moment her husband grabs it off her and throws it through the air. Kristi and Happy Wade of Burgaw were walking to their SUV to take their cat to the vet the morning of April 9 when the growling animal ran across the street and attacked, WIS-TVreports. After throwing it several feet, Happy Wade eventually shot it after it ran into the couple’s garage and then continued to charge, ABC 11 reports. A neighbor who had been jogging by at the time stopped to help and called 911. Video of the incident is simply unbelievable. https://twitter.com/nojumper/status/1383145940807163904?s=20 The bobcat was injured by Wade and later euthanized by local law enforcement.  An autopsy revealed that the animal was indeed rabid, and the family has been undergoing treatment for their numerous bite wounds.
