Rep.-elect Ihlan Omar, D-Minn., is one of two Muslim women elected to Congress in November and she wasted no time using her platform as an elected official to mock Vice President Mike Pence’s Christian faith… and Jesus.
Taking to Twitter, Omar shared a photo of Pence sitting in the Oval Office this week while President Trump met with Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi.
The image captured the vice president with his eyes closed — mid-blink — and Omar added the caption: “Jesus take the wheel!

Fittingly, the second Muslim woman elected to office, Rep.-elect Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., “liked” Omar’s tweet mocking Jesus and Pence’s strong faith.
Of course, if a conservative shared a similar tweet mocking Omar, directing Allah to take the wheel in place of Jesus, the likelihood is very good that they would see their account suspended posthaste.
Omar, a Somali-American from Minnesota, faced dogged claims during her campaign that she had married her brother, in part to commit immigration fraud — she issued a statement in 2016 saying the allegations “are absurd and offensive,” according to The Associated Press.
The news agency reported that she “broadly denied the allegations” in a statement to the AP, saying she “declined to provide documents or answer specific questions when pressed.”
She reportedly also declined to give the AP a list of her siblings — as refugees from Somalia, access to immigration records, birth certificates and other documents is all but impossible without consent from the individual, according to U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services.
While the hate-filled left reveled in Omar’s tweet, the media had little interest, though we know their reaction if someone of her stature mocked her Muslim faith.
Social media is a different matter though, with the newly-elected Democrat finding no protection from her politically correct media allies.
Here’s a sampling of responses from Twitter:
It’s called a blink. Eyes do it daily. Silly and sad. SMH

Already indulging the Christian bashing, huh? America, THIS is what happens when you bring hate-filled Muslims into our government. This cuss isn’t even in office yet and she is already attacking Christians and spreading hate.

You should know better. Anybody can snag a photo to find someone in an unflattering pose. What will you say when someone does the same to you?

He will. Don’t you worry.

Yeah, make fun of someone for their faith. Good job.

Great coming from someone who married her own brother for immigration purposes. Not a great way to start your “short run” in Congress insulting Christians.
