In more shocking news, Ilhan Omar’s daughter has been retweeting accounts that support the rioters.
Rep. Ilhan Omar’s daughter appeared to express support for rioters in Minneapolis following the controversial death of a black man while in police custody.
Irsa Hirsi, Omar’s 17-year-old daughter, retweeted a message from a Minneapolis-based socialist organization, referring to individuals rioting and looting as “comrades.”
Hirsi responded to criticism by arguing that she’s an “empathetic” person and denied supporting the riots.
Omar has been a vocal supporter of the riots that broke out following the death of George Floyd while in police custody, arguing that the violence resulting from his death is “warranted.”
“Our anger is just. Our anger is warranted,” the Minnesota congresswoman said about the riots. “And our priority right now must be protecting one another.”
