Rep. Banks Calls Omar a “Disgrace” After She Claims She’s “Stricken With PTSD”

Ilhan Omar is took heat from conservatives
Wednesday for claiming she’s been “stricken with PTSD” when hearing conversations around
war at a Press conference. “And I think every time I hear about — I
hear of conversations around war, I find myself being stricken with PTSD.” Omar said “And I find peace knowing that
I serve with great advocates for peace and people who have shown courage against war” Rep. Jim Banks blasted Omar, calling her a
“disgrace” and “offensive to our nation’s veterans” tweeting: Rep. Ilhan Omar complained she’s “stricken
with PTSD” because of recent events in the Middle East. This is a disgrace and offensive to our nation’s
veterans who really do have PTSD after putting their life on the line to keep America safe. On the same day, Omar was also blasted for
laughing and apparently joking around while her colleague Sheila Jackson Lee discussed
U.S. casualties. Omar responded by retweeting a tweet by “Common
Defense” that wrote: Dear @RepJimBanks, This is a tremendously
ignorant thing to say. Veterans like us know that people wearing
uniforms aren’t the only ones impacted by war. @Ilhan is a refugee. We stand with her against hawkish elites like
you. #VetsForIlhan #EndForeverWar Banks then replied: No @IlhanMN – you can’t change the subject. Your words and actions at today’s press
conference reveal your feelings toward our soldiers serving abroad and the video speaks
for itself.
