SHOCK: Rep. Ilhan Omar Praises Trump’s Response To Coronavirus Crisis

This national emergency over Coronavirus has brought people together in some surprising ways.

First California Governor Gavin Newsom praised Trump for his response, then New York Governor Andrew Cuomo praised Trump, on the Rachel Maddow show no less.

And now Rep. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota is praising Trump. Will wonders never cease?

FOX News reports:

Omar, normally a staunch critic of the White House who herself has repeatedly drawn the president’s ire, went on to quote Rep. Ayanna Pressley, D-Mass., as saying “unprecedented times require unprecedented leadership” — and, Omar added, “we are seeing that in our country right now.”

“Finally, we should never let politics get in the way of good policy,” Omar concluded. “This is a great start and hope others will be part of a united front to push for good policies that will help us work through the economic anxiety the country is feeling right now.”

Omar was responding to a post by The Intercept’s Lee Fang, who noted: “Trump suspending mortgage foreclosures, demanding cash payments to Americans, now invoking the Defense Production Act to force private firms to produce needed supplies is incredible. Kind of a shell shock for anyone who reported on any economic policies in the Obama years.”

Is this real life?

Simply amazing.
