Maddow Takes The Bait, Makes Ilhan Omar The Face of the Democrat Party

MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow conducted a congratulatory interview with Minnesota Democrat congresswoman Ilhan Omar Monday, asserting Omar’s visible position as the new face of the Democrat Party.

President Trump’s direct Twitter attack on the progressive congresspeople — presumably referring to Omar and her progressive activist cohorts like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Rashida Tlaib — sparked worldwide controversy. But Trump seemed to realize it was a good play, referring in his press conference to that crew’s low poll numbers. Trump suggested that perhaps those progressives could devote themselves to humanitarian, charitable or political works in failing countries overseas.

This comes on the heels of a leak of internal Democrat polling, which shows tragically low numbers for Ocasio-Cortez and Ilhan Omar: only 22 percent of white voters with two or fewer years of college think positively of AOC, and 9 percent for Omar.
