Omar, Tlaib Refuse To Stand To Honor Last Surviving Tuskegee Airmen – Regret It

Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib, who tout themselves as “women of color” serving in the House of Representatives, shocked those in attendance at Tuesday night’s State of the Union address. The two “Squad” members refused to honor Charles McGee, the last surviving Tuskegee Airmen. They remained seated with scowls on their faces as President Donald Trump introduced him. It was caught on video, and they were made to regret it. You’ll love this.

President Donald Trump’s State of the Union speech was such an epic pro-American address that Nancy Pelosi couldn’t help herself. Angered by hearing the litany of accomplishments Trump delivered despite her party’s endless interference, a petty Pelosi tore up the speech. The political stunt backfired.

Pelosi likely had given her cohorts instructions to remain seated during the speech. She was hoping to downplay all of the great points she knew Trump was going to be making. However, Omar and Tlaib’s hatred of Trump caused them to stay seated when Charles McGee, the last surviving Tuskegee Airman, was being honored.

During his speech, Trump said, “Sitting beside Iain tonight is his great hero. Charles McGee was born in Cleveland, Ohio, one century ago. Charles is one of the last surviving Tuskegee Airmen  the first black fighter pilots  and he also happens to be Iain’s great-grandfather.”

“After more than 130 combat missions in World War II, he came back to a country still struggling for Civil Rights and went on to serve America in Korea and Vietnam,” Trump continued. “On December 7th, Charles celebrated his 100th birthday. A few weeks ago, I signed a bill promoting Charles McGee to Brigadier General. And earlier today, I pinned the stars on his shoulders in the Oval Office. General McGee: Our Nation salutes you.”

The chamber erupted in applause. Even most of the Democrats were giving a standing ovation. But not the Minnesota or Michigan Congresswomen.

“This appears to show far-left Democrat Reps. Rashida Tlaib (MI) and Ilhan Omar (MN) *refusing* to stand for the last surviving Tuskegee Airmen Brig. Gen. Charles McGee Looks like nearly everyone else stood, except for those two, who didn’t want to honor a US hero,” tweeted Ryan Saavedra.

Their despicable actions were confirmed by another reporter inside the chamber tweeting in real-time. 

“A small cluster of Democrats including Rashida Tlaib, Ilhan Omar and Mark Pocan don’t stand for Charles McGee, the former Tuskegee Airman introduced by Trump,” tweeted Ben Jacobs.

Americans are livid and made Omar and Tlaib regret their disgusting actions. 

“I am deeply angered and embarrassed that these two have the privilege of sitting in our Congress. They represent all that is unAmerican and they need to go,” tweeted Alan Robertson.

“I get them not liking Trump. I hated Obama. But how the hell are you going to disrespect a Tuskegee Airman like that? Shouldn’t they be one of those things that all Americans can still agree on? Democrats, you need to check your people there,” tweeted George Mason.

“Why would they stand in honor of someone who fought for America? They hate America,” tweeted Matt Rooney.

“Oh yes, they did! WATCH: Democrats Omar, Tlaib REFUSE TO STAND In Honor Of Last Surviving Tuskegee Airmen! Racist too? Anti-American & Anti-Semitic already well documented. VOTE EVERY DEMOCRAT OUT!” tweeted Pam Emerson.

“The Tuskegee airmen are one of the few remaining things in this country that virtually all Americans should be able to agree on. How they can show that level of disrespect to him is beyond me,” tweeted George Mason.

Most supporters of President Trump aren’t shocked at the level of depravity shown by the two “Squad” members.

Omar and Tlaib are openly anti-Semitic and have zero love for the United States. They also have another thing in common. Their campaigns were both supported heavily by CAIR, the Council on American-Islamic Relations.

“At the CAIR fundraiser this past March, Omar appeared with CAIR-Florida director Hassan Shibly. He has excoriated gay people. He repeatedly refused to acknowledge Hamas and Hezbollah as terrorist groups,” Times of Israel reports. 

“Rep. Tlaib joined Omar Suleiman, a Muslim Brotherhood-linked imam who has a long history of anti-LGBT, anti-woman, and anti-Semitic remarks, at the fundraising event in Detroit in 2019,” Conservative Review reports. 

They are two moles who have embedded themselves inside our Congress. They hate America. They don’t care about empowering women. They openly support Muslim extremists, and it’s time Americans living in their districts do the right thing and vote them out this November.
