After facing backlash for comments critics saw as antisemitic, U.S. Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., also made headlines this week for her evaluation of former President Barack Obama.
Citing some of his military and immigration positions, Omar claimed the 44th president was little more than a “pretty face” and shared many of the same beliefs she abhors in the current president.
“We can’t be only upset with Trump,” she said. “His policies are bad, but many of the people who came before him also had really bad policies. They just were more polished than he was.”
