James Woods Dunks On Ilhan Omar After She Calls For the Abolishment of Death Penalty, Electoral College & ICE

On Thursday, radical Rep. Ilhan Omar called for the abolishment of the death penalty, the Electoral College, and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).

“Abolish the death penalty. Abolish the electoral college. Abolish ICE,” Omar said in a tweet.

Conservative Actor James Woods dunked on Omar the next day by bringing up her past: “Abolish bigamy,” Woods said.

Woods was referring to the allegations Omar is facing regarding her relationship with multiple men at the same time.

Check out what Politifact said as they cited the Star-Tribune’s research:

In 2002, Omar, then 19, religiously married Ahmed Hirsi, but not legally. Omar and Hirsi had two children, but in 2008, they obtained a religious divorce. The following year, in 2009, Omar married Ahmed Nur Said Elmi both religiously and legally. … In 2011, Omar and Elmi divorced religiously, but remained married legally. In 2012, Omar and Hirsi reconciled and had a third child. In 2017, Omar legally divorced Elmi, and the following year, she legally married Hirsi.

Woods has also called Omar out for polygamy.

Back in March, Woods responded to a tweet from Omar, saying, “How about polygamy? #BroBoner” Woods was referring to Omar’s relationship with her own brother.

Time goes on, but Omar’s radical messages stay the same. During an interview on Thursday with MSNBC, Omar blamed President Donald Trump for her dad’s death because of “dangerous criminal neglect by Trump and his administration,” and adding, “We have to investigate and prosecute these people who are responsible for these reckless deaths.”

Omar’s dad had died in June after he came to the United States from Kenya.

Omar said, “I lost my father on June 16. I remember my dad was in Kenya, he came back into the U.S. when Covid hit because he thought he was going to be safer here. My father and over 300,000 people have lost their lives to Covid because of dangerous criminal neglect by Trump and his administration, and I agree with Clyburn that it is not enough for us just to issue subpoenas, we have to investigate and prosecute these people who are responsible for these reckless deaths.”

“My father should be here today, so many of our family members should be here today and they’re not here with us because we had leaders who didn’t care about their lives,” she said.

“Our president today has not shown an ounce of compassion to the people who have passed away,” Omar continued. “He still has not acknowledged the devastating loss so many of us are feeling. My father survived so many things and for him to lose his life to Covid is devastating and right before you came on the reporter was sharing a story and that story is a story that my siblings and I share over and over and over again. It does not make sense that this is a reality in this country. This could have been avoided; this can be avoided, there are people who are responsible, and we cannot forget that when the next administration is sworn in and they are in charge of what happens next.”
