Apparently, simply disagreeing with anything Rep. Omar says now is either racist, sexist and likely both.
Earlier this week the Minnesota Democrat actually blamed the United States for the political and social unrest in Venezuela. America’s “bullying” created the situation in the socialist country, according to Rep. Omar.

Vice President Mike Pence responded to the ill-informed Democrat, saying that “the congresswoman doesn’t know what she’s talking about.” Going on to say:
Nicolas Maduro is a socialist dictator who has taken what was one of the most prosperous nations in this hemisphere and brought it literally to a level of deprivation and oppression and poverty that we have never seen. Nine out of 10 people in Venezuela live in poverty. Three million people have fled Venezuela. That’s not a result of U.S. policies. That’s the result of dictatorship and socialism that has been imposed on people of Venezuela by Nicolas Maduro.
But like every other situation where Omar is criticized for a situation that she has created, it’s not her fault. She is, once again, the victim. She accused the Vice President of sexism and racism.
Women of color have heard this before. Instead of "we disagree," it's "she doesn't know what she's talking about." They have to make us feel small.
This from an Administration that thinks climate change is a Chinese hoax. https://t.co/8ZaHfY4hfH

She truly is always the victim – each and every time.
