Far-left Democratic Socialist Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders, during a campaign rally on Friday, praised radical congresswoman Ilhan Omar as ‘one of the most extraordinary people in American politics.’
As The Daily Wire reports:
On Friday, appearing with hard-left anti-Semitic Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) at a campaign event at Southern New Hampshire University in Manchester, New Hampshire, Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) called Omar “one of the most extraordinary people in American politics,” Fox News reported.
At another event on Friday at Nashua Community College, Sanders joined Omar on stage, where she had introduced him, took her by the hand, and crowed:
“I want to thank all of you for coming out this evening and especially want to thank Congresswoman Ilhan Omar for coming all the way from Minneapolis. This Congresswoman is not only one of the most progressive members of the U.S. House, a leader on so many important issues; she is also one of the bravest members of the United States Congress. She has stood up to more ugliness coming from the highest levels of government than I have ever seen, and I am so impressed by all that she does and so honored to be able to work with her and have her here in New Hampshire tonight.”

The same day, Sanders tweeted, “Trump is a racist, a xenophobe, and a religious bigot. Our campaign is the strongest to defeat him because it is rooted in human solidarity. Join us live for our rally with @ilhanmn in Nashua, NH.”

Sanders’ cozy relationship with the radical muslim representative should come as no surprise, as Sanders has long been a socialist radical himself. Whether Omar might be on a short list for Sanders’s VP slot should he win the primary remains to be seen.
