What A Clown: Rep. Omar Flops When Asked About Plan To Disband Police (VIDEO)
Rep. Ilhan Omar, who’s still under investigation had some issues getting through an interview with CNN’s Jake Tapper. When asked a very straightforward question about the city of Minneapolis plans to disband their police department he ended up looking like a clown.
Omar was hoping to just spew her hate about the police and her radical talking points, but then CNN’s Jake Tapper accidentally asked her a real question and she was not ready to answer.
“So, let’s talk about that, because you have talked about the dismantling, the need to dismantle the Minneapolis Police Department,” Tapper said.
“What takes its place, and — if you could just decree what takes its place? Who investigates crimes? Who arrests criminals? What happens?
Omar’s response was a mush of far left-liberal talking points — “a new way forward,” “crisis of credibility” — and non-sequiturs that didn’t add up to a thing.
“A new way forward can’t be put in place if we have a department that is having a crisis of credibility, if we have a department that’s led by a chief who’s suited for racism, if we have a department that hasn’t solved homicide,” she said. “Half of the homicides in Minneapolis Police Department go unsolved.
“There have been cases where they have destroyed rape kits. And so you can’t really reform a department that is rotten to the root. What you can do is rebuild. And so this is our opportunity, you know, as a city, to come together, have the conversation of what public safety looks like, who enforces the most dangerous crimes that take place in our community.”
She never answered the question and merely pointed to what San Fransisco is doing but they are not disbanding their police department like Minneapolis has declared they are just altering what police will respond to. The leaders in the city of Minneapolis are a bunch of clowns and have no idea what the hell they are doing.
