Rep. Ilhan Omar was greeted by her adoring fans at the airport last night, according to the mainstream media. However, President Donald Trump has another take on it. “The mainstream media even covered a tiny staged crowd as they greeted Foul-Mouthed Omar in Minnesota,” said Trump. Well, the president was proven right. Omar’s airport crowd was as fake as can be. You’ll love this.
The mainstream media in conjunction with the Democratic Party and Ilhan Omar’s staff staged a fake welcome home rally last night in Minneapolis. In fact, the leftist media is claiming poor Omar has security concerns due to President Donald Trump.
“Video of Omar, D-Minn., arriving at the airport shows her walking into a crowd of people clapping and cheering. As she walks into the mass, she’s surrounded by supporters and television cameras as the chants grow louder,” reports USA Today.
More than 100 people greeted her at the baggage claim area at the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport, reports the Star Tribune.
“We are going to continue to be a nightmare to this president,” she told the crowd, “because his policies are a nightmare to us and we are not deterred, we are not frightened.”

Ilhan Omar wants you to think she is so loved by the people in Minnesota that they spontaneously showed up at the airport with their undying support in the face of all the so-called horrendous attacks by President Trump.
President Donald Trump immediately warned Americans do not be fooled by this fake welcome. It was a staged photo-op, and we have proof.
Trump decried the establishment media on Twitter for covering the event, accusing them of a “sick partnership” with the radical left.
“They even covered a tiny staged crowd as they greeted Foul-Mouthed Omar in Minnesota, a state which I will win in 2020 because they can’t stand her and her hatred of our Country,” he wrote.
“Mainstream Media, which has lost all credibility, has either officially or unofficially become a part of the Radical Left Democrat Party,” Trump wrote. “It is a sick partnership, so pathetic to watch!”
Trump noted the establishment media was “crazed” over the “send her back” chant shouted by his supporters but remained “totally calm” about Omar’s history of controversial statements.
….State which I will win in #2020 because they can’t stand her and her hatred of our Country, and they appreciate all that I have done for them (opening up mining and MUCH more) which has led to the best employment & economic year in Minnesota’s long and beautiful history!

Trump was proven right once again. Those of us who have experience in politics and campaigns understand people just don’t spontaneously appear. Especially with the far-leftists who are infamous for staging protests and using what we call astroturf.
Trump rallies are planned, but the attendance is all grassroots. No one is paying anyone to go to a Trump rally. Yet what are Democrats to do who really don’t have a huge grassroots following or support like Ilhan Omar?
It’s quite simple. They use labor unions. Labor unions make up the majority of paid protesters against conservative causes, and in this case, they are “paid supporters.”
And if you take a look at the screenshot we got of Omar’s supporters, you’ll notice red arrows pointed to signs with AFSCME, and another with UNITE, which are two large labor unions.
You can also see green shirts which are the union shirt of AFSCME. Lastly, you can see the girl in the yellow vest who has an “Ilhan” t-shirt on. Those in yellow vests are the coordinators who lead the group of paid union supporters to and from the bus they rented to “spontaneously greet Omar.”
But that’s not all. We also have tweets by the Minnesota Congresswoman showing her ties to those two unions: AFSCME and UNITE.
“As a former @AFSCME member, I’m endlessly proud to be endorsed by the Minnesota AFL-CIO (@MNAFLCIO). I will fight shoulder to shoulder with my union brothers and sisters until we have economic security for every working family,” tweeted Omar.

“Seeing off Unite Here Local 17 as they head off to support their union brethren striking at Marriott Hotels across the nation!” tweeted Omar.

The rest of the crowd is made up of mainstream media who are in on it with the Omar campaign. It was probably decided before Ilhan left Washington, D.C. to put together this fake crowd. Her staffers call the two unions who have their “people” on-call.
Usually, the labor unions have “call to action” lists and can get 20-30 people with little notice to show-up. Yes, they get paid by the hour. Most don’t know or care where they are going but they bring their union signs and wear their union colors. In certain events like this one, some are told to just wear street clothes.
This isn’t a secret. This is well-known inside political circles, and it’s one reason why labor unions are so powerful. So, Minnesotans didn’t just spontaneously show-up dying to cheer Omar on. Paid labor unions did.
The Somali refugee is currently facing the heat over the allegations about her alleged immigration fraud and sham marriage to her brother. This might be the last cheering crowd Ilhan Omar ever sees in a long time.
