Radical Rep. Ilhan Omar, (D-Minn) is not happy that lawmakers are receiving the coronavirus vaccine before America’s most vulnerable seniors and frontline workers.
Her attack on government leaders must also apparently include fellow “Squad” member and leader Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez — remember, calling her “AOC” is “disrespectful” but buy her $65 “AOC” shirts now — who recorded herself getting the vaccine over the weekend.
“It’s now clear that we don’t have enough vaccines for everyone and there is shortage of supply, we have to prioritize those who need it most,” Omar writes.
“That’s why it’s disturbing to see members be 1st to get vaccine while most frontline workers, elderly and infirm in our districts, wait.”
Squad problems, no doubt.
For the first time since becoming a socialist Squad member, Omar has actually made a good point, saying it’s “shameful” that lawmakers are receiving the vaccine not because of their age but their “importance.”
“We are not more important [than] frontline workers, teachers etc. who are making sacrifices everyday,” Omar goes on. “Which is why I won’t take it. People who need it most, should get it. Full stop.”
Wow, call it a day, Rep. Omar.
For continuity of government, officials in the White House, Congress, and the judiciary were given priority access to the vaccines. Ocasio-Cortez says members of the House of Representatives were being “urged to take [the vaccine] as part of the government’s plan in accordance with national security protocols.”
As of now, it’s unclear how deep these #SquadProblems run, or if the irrational group has a de facto arbiter to settle such drama.
Not that I’d ever want to assist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez — always write the name out — but if the battle takes a harsh turn on Twitter, all she has to do is bring up Omar funneling nearly $3 million to her husband’s political consulting firm. Have to bet that’d get Omar’s attention.
Sucks to have Squad problems.
