In the ongoing discussions leading up to the 2024 National Democratic Primary, Ilhan Omar, a prominent member of the progressive ‘Squad’, blew up over being included in a national poll.
The poll, conducted by NoblePredictive, showed potential matchups for the primary, with Joe Biden leading comfortably in each scenario. In one particular matchup, Biden was shown leading with 63% compared to Omar’s 10%.
Shortly after the poll was shared, Omar took to Twitter to question her inclusion, crying, “You all know I am not eligible to run for President, why do this and waste people’s time???”
Twitter was quick to point out that Omar, originally born in Mogadishu, Somalia, is constitutionally ineligible to run for the presidency of the United States. The US Constitution requires all Presidents to be naturally born citizens.

Omar, since her entry into U.S. politics and her election to the House of Representatives, has been a figure of notable controversy due to disparaging comments about Israel and 9/11, as well as making comparisons between the US and the Taliban.
And thank the Lord you aren’t!

Your Husband / Brother would probably object also.

Because you represent the fringe, far-left wing of congressional Democrats and they're curious if your brand of hate is picking up with Democrat voters.

Seems like the community note should also say that you’re ineligible because you married your brother to skirt immigration laws.

You shouldn't be allowed in congress either, you clearly hate this country.
