Ilhan Omar: Obama a ‘pretty face’ who got ‘away with murder’

“Murder?”

Oh, girl…. All these good points and such a combative way of putting them out there.

Didn’t anyone think to give you a crash course on official do’s and don’ts?

You know, stuff like:
– Do challenge unjust policies and practices that are part of the status-quo.
– Don’t use standard racist tropes to do so.
– Do point out your own side can do better than they have in the past.
– Don’t throw your party’s heroes under the bus and speak of them the way you might speak of an enemy.

Well, to fair, as a millennial who came of age in the Obama years you can almost be forgiven for not knowing the last one. After all, Barack and Michelle went after the Clintons pretty hard in 2008. Party powers-that-be followed them down the prim-rose path of that narrative and look how that turned out. [Ahem. Cough.] Sure, it wasn’t the sole cause but sure as shit didn’t help the party in 2016.
