President Donald Trump ripped the liberal media for covering what he called a “tiny staged” rally at a Minneapolis airport in support of Rep. Ilhan Omar.
What raised the ire of the President were the contrasting coverages in the pair’s rallies. Trump made pro-American statements at his rally where a crowd cheered raucously throughout but was covered negatively, while Omar, an anti-American, and her supporters were covered adoringly.
“It is amazing how the Fake News Media became ‘crazed’ over the chant ‘send her back‘ by a packed Arena (a record) crowd in the Great State of North Carolina, but is totally calm & accepting of the most vile and disgusting statements made by the three Radical Left Congresswomen,” Trump fumed.
By contrast, he said, the media’s relationship with the Democrat party is “pathetic to watch,” noting their coverage of a “tiny staged crowd” cheering on the “Foul-Mouthed Omar.”
….Mainstream Media, which has lost all credibility, has either officially or unofficially become a part of the Radical Left Democrat Party. It is a sick partnership, so pathetic to watch! They even covered a tiny staged crowd as they greeted Foul Mouthed Omar in Minnesota, a…

Trump went on to boast that he will win the state of Minnesota in 2020 because “they appreciate all that I have done for them.”
The President’s claims seem to echo that of The Political Insider contributor Wayne Dupree, who suggested something didn’t add up with a massive crowd knowing where Omar would be and then coming out in droves.
“As for this gathering, it looked like a staged crowd. How could so many people know when she was returning and on which flight without her office telling people to come out?” he asked.
Trump’s feud with the Minnesota congresswoman seems to have no end in sight. Aside from the ‘send her back’ controversy, something that was out of the President’s control, he continues to call out her anti-Semitic, anti-American views.
Trump upped the ante earlier this week when he sent the media scrambling by revealing reports that indicate Omar may have committed tax fraud while noting that stories are actually circulating in Minnesota newspapers that she married her own brother in an attempt to skirt immigration laws.
For her part, Omar called Trump’s policies “fascist” and told fans that she will continue being a thorn in his side.
“His nightmare is seeing a Somali immigrant refugee rise to Congress,” she claimed without evidence. “His nightmare is seeing the beautiful mosaic fabric of our country welcome someone like me as their member of Congress home to Minnesota.”
“We are going to continue to be a nightmare to this president, because his policies are a nightmare to us,” Omar added.
The only nightmare this country has right now is the radical anti-American socialists taking over the Democrat party. If they, in turn, take over the Senate or the White House, the nightmare will grow ever more frightening.
