Rand Paul Offers to Buy Omar Ticket to Somalia So She Would ‘Appreciate America More’



Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) said he’s willing to contribute to travel expenses for Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN-05) to visit Somalia so she would “appreciate America more.”

“I’m in a town where we have a lot of people who are refugees. Some come from Somalia, some from Bosnia. I’ve never heard one of them say that America is a terrible place or be unappreciative of our country. Most of them are thankful,” Paul told Breitbart News this week.

Paul joined President Donald Trump earlier this month in criticizing Omar for her “bitterness and anger toward the country.”

“I think she does deserve a rebuke over trying to say we have a rotten country,” Paul said of Trump’s comments, according to the Washington Examiner. “I’m sort of dumbfounded how unappreciative she is of our country.”

The Kentucky senator elaborated on those comments when speaking with reporters from Breitbart News this week.

“She came here and we fed her, we clothed her. She got welfare. She got school. She got healthcare. And then, lo and behold, she has the honor of actually winning a seat in Congress and she says we’re a terrible country. I think that’s about as ungrateful as you can get,” Paul said.

“So while I’m not saying we forcibly send her anywhere, I’m willing to contribute to buy her a ticket to go visit Somalia and I think she could maybe learn a little bit about the disaster that is Somalia that has no capitalism. It has no God-given rights guaranteed in a constitution. And it has about seven different tribes that have been fighting each other for the last 40 years,” he continued. “And then maybe after she’s visited Somalia for a while, she might come back and appreciate America more.”

    If you are still a demon-rat read this stupid, Rewrite Hillary Clinton 2005, said the average democrat voter is just plain stupid, they are so easy to manipulate, that’s the easy part, What did Hillary have to hide? why didn’t she give all her emails to the FBI? she ,and Obama colluded with Russia, and got millions from the 20% uranium deal, she’s an alcoholic, drug addict, can’t walk, can’t talk, and pedophile Billy boy had to talk for her, we voted for a non politician that is not stealing, and wasting our tax money, you wanted them to be our president, what a stupid retarded idiot you are, you have shit for brains. The democrats are murderers they had Seth Rich murdered for Hillary, and they had the water to hydrogen auto inventor murdered for the oil company’s and they have covered up cures for cancer with the criminal Vatican. The only thing that will bring us out of this depression is free energy, hydrogen from water, you can make all the hydrogen, as you drive from a tank of water, you know our space shuttles,are powered by hydrogen / oxygen made from water, and home power plants run from water. There’s a 200 mpg carburetor sitting in the patient office collecting dust, called the Porge vapor carburetor, liquid gas does not burn, only the vapor, look at the gas wast that our cars, and truck get 20, 30 ,40 mile to the gallon, boycott the auto company’s owned by the oil company’s don’t buy a new vehicle, and demand water to hydrogen kits to change all autos to water power with 2 switches to shut off the fuel pump, and fuel injectors, and fill your tank up with water, free energy
