Ilhan Omar is trying to dig herself out of trouble.
The freshman Democrat is wrapped in scandals surrounding accusations of anti-Semitism.
Omar never imagined things could get worse, but that is what happened when she was caught red handed trying to hide something from her past.
Omar’s anti-Semitic tweets began attracting attention once she was sworn in as a member of Congress.
In one 2012 tweet, Omar claimed Israel “hypnotized” the rest of the world.
Eventually, the scandal grew to such a crisis point that Nancy Pelosi forced her to apologize.
The Washington Examiner’s Jerry Dunleavy tweeted:
There is an old saying that you can run, but you can’t hide.
Omar is hoping that by deleting these tweets and lying low, the controversy will blow over.
That is unlikely to be the case.
And Omar has only herself to blame.
When the tweets surfaced, she did not apologize.
Instead she defended the tweets by attacking the Israeli “regime.”
