Embattled rookie lawmaker Ilhan Omar (MN) said something pretty silly about raising the minimum wage. She’s either highly ignorant or just doesn’t care.
Which is more likely?
Thankfully, those “in the know” decided to correct her.
Here’s Ilhan’s tweet:
( (> Make more money
<) )> When you raise their wages
— Rep. Ilhan Omar (@Ilhan) July 9, 2019
Having more money doesn’t mean shit if the price of goods goes up with that pay increase

What is "inflation"?
What is "devaluation"?
What is "Venezuela"?

The very same article in quoted tweet states that 1.3 MILLION Americans will lose their jobs if we increase the minimum wage.

So then why not pay everyone 100 dollars per hour? Then people would make even more money! https://t.co/6rG8ZeDRP2

Why stop at $15/hr. Make it $150/hr and New Car sales will skyrocket/. . . Wait make it $500/hr !!!

That's demonstrably false in a number of examples. But good try.

( (> Why

Thanks for playing, Ilhan. From now on, let the adults handle things.
The whole “raising the minimum wage” argument isn’t a tough concept to grasp. Democrats don’t care, though.
They care about playing politics.
Republican Rep. Liz Cheney (WY) made a comment about Russian President Vladimir Putin.
Rep. Liz Cheney: “Clearly what the Democrats in the Judiciary Committee are doing is undermining our democracy and helping Vladimir Putin.”

Omar decided to respond, accusing Cheney of lying…
🤦🏽♀️ Liz Cheney is accusing a committee investigating Russian election interference of…helping Vladimir Putin.
This is an impressive lie even for the Cheney family.
Enter Cheney, who came back at Omar HARD:
No surprise @IlhanMN, an anti-Semitic Socialist who slanders US troops and carries water for Hamas and Maduro, doesn’t recognize the truth when she hears it.

Liz Cheney for president!? DAAAANNNGG!!
By now, everyone who follows politics is quite familiar with Omar’s 9/11 comment. It was abhorrent and reprehensible.
Omar faced backlash from both sides of the aisle, before being called out by President Trump.
Remember his tweet?

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY) and numerous other far-left radicals claimed Trump was inciting violence against Omar. Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) even beefed up Omar’s security.
Dems wanted the CEO of Twitter to take down 45’s tweet, but they just got some bad news.
It’s not happening.
From Zero Hedge:
Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) didn’t get her way after Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey called her to let her know that the company would not remove a tweet from President Trump featuring a video of her casually dismissing the 9/11 terrorist attack as “some people did something.”
When the Somali-born Muslim Rep. pressed Dorsey on why the tweet wasn’t removed, Dorsey said that Trump’s tweet didn’t violate the company rules, according to the Washington Post.
Dorsey also pointed to the fact that the tweet and video already had been viewed and shared far beyond the site, one of the sources said. But the Twitter executive did tell Omar that the tech giant needed to do a better job generally in removing hate and harassment from the site, according to the two people familiar with the call. –Washington Post
Dorsey recently met with Trump in Oval Office to discuss conservative censorship on social media. That same day, Dorsey phoned Omar to hear her out.
The bottom line is that liberals didn’t get their way on this one.
