Ilhan Omar’s career has been marked by controversies, racism and alleged criminal conduct.
But Omar may have crossed a line that could destroy the Democrat Party for good.
And that’s because Ilhan Omar just took down Joe Biden with this rude awakening.
As part of the “Squad”, Ilhan Omar assumed a leadership role in the Democrat Party.
Omar’s mind meld with Democrat voters on identity politics, socialism and hatred for Donald Trump makes hers one of the loudest and most powerful voices in the party.
Grassroots Democrats hang on her every word and look for Omar to drop a hint on which way she was leaning in the Presidential contest.
Omar finally showed her cards.
And it was bad news for Joe Biden.
In an interview with The Guardian, Omar attacked Biden as an establishment candidate that wouldn’t fight for revolutionary change.
“There are few people who fit into the kind of progress that we all want to see in this country,” Omar declared. “And I would say he is not one of them.”
“I think it has been very clear to many of the people who have been creating the kind of movement that is exciting generations, that we want somebody who really has a plan that is going to tackle a lot of the systematic challenges that we have, and he doesn’t,” Omar continued.
Omar’s criticism of Biden could not come at a worse time.
The fake news media is waking up to the fact that Biden lost his frontrunner status.
Polls in key early states like Iowa and New Hampshire show Biden tied or losing to Elizabeth Warren.
In fact, the latest Des Moines Register/CNN poll showed Warren surging seven points to take the lead over Biden in the first Presidential nominating contest.
In addition, Biden is under siege for charges of corruption after he admitted he forced the ex-Ukrainian President to fire a prosecutor that was investigating an energy company where his son Hunter sat on the Board of Directors.
Biden’s also faced increasing scrutiny over his mental state.
During his few campaign stops and in the three Presidential debates, the 76-year-old Biden routinely forgets names, dates and even where he is speaking.
Many Democrats are wondering if old age is catching up with the former Vice President or if he is hiding a serious health issue.
Hillary Clinton covered up the fact that she suffered from a serious – and possibly life threatening – illness during the 2016 campaign and the last thing any Democrat wants is a repeat of that disaster.
Now Biden is being hit on the ideological front by one of the most high profile and popular – with liberal voters – Democrats in Congress.
This is a fight Biden wants to avoid.
There is no way Biden can respond to Omar without being tagged as an old white man talking down to a minority woman.
