Internet Explodes on Ilhan Omar After She Accuses Trump of Triggering Her PTSD
Rep. Ilhan Omar just insulted all the brave men and women who have served in our military and suffer from PTSD.
Omar said that she’s triggered by the Trump administration and that it triggers her PTSD. This is a huge insult to our veterans and others who suffer from PTSD.
That’s one problem with liberals is that they try to normalize everything and make it seem like everyone has it, but since they don’t treat it or the individuals they way they should.
“I feel ill a little bit because of everything that is taking place and I think every time I hear of conversations around war, I find myself being stricken with PTSD,” Omar said.

Her insulting comment comes during a presser when Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee was talking about U.S. casualties in Iraq, in which the whole time Omar is busy laughing.
“I’m very glad to say that I was part of the 132 and also the vote for Barbara Lee’s amendment, but I think that the point of that is that that is the same war that we’re dealing with today,” Rep. Jackson Lee said. “We never solved any problems with AUMF, we left four thousand plus, maybe even forty-four hundred dead, and over sixty thousand who came back injured in some form and the war never ended.”
“I recall the language in AUMF, it deals with hostilities in Iraq. It doesn’t deal with an incident or a dislike or someone in a car coming in from the airport. That is the danger of not acting and I do think with our leadership, meaning the leadership CPC, that will come together around specific answers.”

The internet decided to light her up for her insensitive comment:
“Rep. Ilhan Omar complained she’s ‘stricken with PTSD’ because of recent events in the Middle East,” wrote Rep. Banks. “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.”

“@IlhanMN claims PTSD in a direct spit in the face of those in the military who actually suffer from it. She’s an open anti-semite, said “some people did something,” on 9/11 and shows a general hatred for the country. There is no way she should be near the House of Reps.”
