Just when we thought she couldn’t get any crazier, Rep. Ilhan Omar recently insisted that it’s the United States fault for the catastrophic floods occurring in some countries.

To make things even worse, Omar then said, “When you see a Somali refugee or an Iraqi refugee or a Libyan refugee, we often are like, ‘this is my neighbor — they must have survived some struggle.’ We don’t ever pause to think, ‘What American policy made them come over here?‘” you can read the full details of this story here.
