There was no bigger supporter of Illhan Omar than I when she became a congresswoman
She automatically became the highest ranking Somali politician on the planet.
We had high hopes that she would use her position as a Congresswoman and member of the influential Foreign Affairs committee to benefit Somalis everywhere, and.lord knows we despetately need someone fighting our corner in the halls of power.
So you can imagine my absolute dismay when she launched her jihad against American Jewery in support of the Palestinians.
Illhan Omar has said nothing about Somalis and their issues and instead has been advocating for Lgbt, Mexicans and Arabs.
Furthermore, she seems to revel in her newfound notoriety and enjoys being the centre of attention.
As far as I'm concerned the sooner she's gone the better.
