Rep. Ilhan Omar tries to BLAME the reporter who quoted her saying Obama got ‘away with murder’ on drone strikes for ‘distorting’ her words, but then bizarrely releases audio that proves the journalist was right.
She had an interview, which she taped. Then claimed the reporter got it wrong, and released 2 minutes of audio which showed the reporter was correct.
Alberta fired back at Omar in a tweet: ‘Exhibit A of how politicians use the media as a straw man to avoid owning what they said. Your tape…supports what I wrote 100%. So does my longer tape. It’s beyond dispute. Next time, a phone call from your office before the Twitter ambush would be appreciated.’
Maybe she should have listened to the audio before publishing it….
In the words of Bugs Bunny, “What a maroon.”
