Proving once again that Democrats have no principles and are massive hypocrites about everything, freshman Rep. Ilhan Omar, an America-hater from Minnesota by way of Somalia, said over the weekend that she believes Tara Reade’s accusations of sexual assault against Joe Biden but she’s going to vote for him anyway.
“Believing survivors is consistent with my values. Yes, I endorsed against Biden and I didn’t pick him as our nominee. With that said, in this interview I did on May 6th, we talked about that and quotes aren’t always in context. I will vote for him and help him defeat Trump,” she tweeted.

A translation is: ‘It doesn’t matter because political power is more important.’
Omar’s newfound love for Biden and his campaign comes a day after a Sunday interview published in Britain’s Sunday Times in which she said she believed Reade.
“I do believe Reade. Justice can be delayed, but should never be denied,” she was quoted as saying. The interviewer also noted that if it were up to her, Biden, the old, handsy white guy, wouldn’t be the party’s nominee anyway.
Omar’s remarks were echoed by fellow “Squad” member and freshman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), who recently said Reade’s allegation “certainly seems as though something has happened.”
“There have been investigative journalists that have corroborated certain aspects of her account — that is undeniable — [and] have raised questions about other aspects of her account,” she said in an interview with NPR. “I’m not sure. Frankly, this is a messy moment, and I think we need to acknowledge that — that it is not clear-cut.”
Yeah, it’s ‘messy’ because a Democrat has been credibly accused of doing something they have regularly accused President Trump of doing, without evidence.
For his part and to be fair, Biden has denied the allegations and has called for an investigation into Reade’s charges.
But that could be due to the belief that the Democrat-aligned mainstream media isn’t going to do a serious investigation if they even have an inkling that Reade’s claims are true. And they aren’t about to publish any incriminating evidence even if they did find it.
Which makes Omar’s hypocrisy even more profound.
