Ibtihaj Muhammad, the first Mulim to medal for the United States has turned out to be just another lying Muslim. She made the claim that she was detained at the airport because of Trump’s travel ban for over 2 hours:
“I personally was held at Customs for two hours just a few weeks ago. I don’t know why. I can’t tell you why it happened to me, but I know that I’m Muslim. I have an Arabic name, and even though I represent Team USA and I have that Olympic hardware, it doesn’t change how you look and how people perceive you.”
The mainstream media ran with the story, failing to check the facts in the case for fear it would destroy the narrative. Fortunately an airport security guard for the NSA set the record straight. It turns out she wasn’t detained for two hours and instead of being a couple of weeks ago it was a couple of months ago……..In December when Obama was the president. No retractions yet.
She posted this tweet after she was caught in her lies:
Thanks to all who reached out regarding the December incident at customs. I will continue be a voice for all impacted by profiling & bigotry

“She comes and goes many times. She travels quite extensively. She has never been stopped before,” the official added. “She wasn’t targeted. The checks are totally random; random checks that we all might be subject to.”
Now while some may say, “sure, but that’s just one — probably racist — guy’s opinion. We don’t believe you,” it should be noted that Muhammad herself subtly corrected the misinformation on Twitter four days after her original interview ran.
