Ilhan Omar Slammed For Supporting Genocide

Rep.

Ilhan Omar of Minnesota has been widely condemned for her recent vote abstention.

Omar abstained from a nearly unanimous House vote officially recognizing the Armenian genocide.

Omar argued that the resolution was a political statement designed to condemn Turkey, which denies the genocide.

"Accountability and recognition of genocide should not be used as a cudgel in a political fight." She added that the resolution should've recognized other human-rights violations.

At Minnesota Rally, Trump Gloats Police Shooting Of MSNBC Anchor Was 'A Beautiful Thing'

Amid the protests in Minneapolis triggered by the death of George Floyd, MSNBC anchor Ali Velshi and his crew were fired upon by police in broad daylight. On Friday, President Donald Trump chose to mock Velshi for being shot with a rubber bullet, although he mistakenly said he'd been hit with a tear gas canister.
