Ilhan Omar is getting so obnoxious, she could swing Minnesota red in November

The Democrats' poster girl for America-hating could swing Minnesota's ten electoral votes to President Trump in November.  Representative Ilhan Omar now obviously enjoys trolling Republicans, perhaps lulled into complacency by the MSM's general leftism and Minnesota media's complicity in suppressing news of her apparent immigration fraud by marrying her brother.  (Scott Johnson of Powerline deserves a Pulitzer Prize for his role in exposing this major scandal but won't get one because the Pulitzer committee reflects the leftist bias of the mainstream journalism community.)

What else but hatred could explain this outrageous tweet, intended to "trigger" her opponents?

Her trolling intent is obvious:

Easily triggering conservatives, Right wing bloggers, anti Muslim bigots, tinfoil conspiracy theorists, birthers, pay me a [dollar] to bash Muslims fraudsters, pro-occupation groups and every single xenophobe since 2016.

Plenty of people noticed, including Ted Cruz, but perhaps the most important is Dalia Al-Aqidi, who is running for the GOP nomination to oppose her:

Al-Aqidi, herself a Muslim refugee, has been running on the theme of patriotism and gratitude for her American citizenship:

It's time to defend America! I'm running for Congress because we're not as divided as Ilhan Omar and the far-left would have us believe. I'm running to bring us closer together.

Given the Fifth Congressional District's heavily Democrat voting history, Al-Aqidi will have a difficult time defeating Omar, but as a Muslim refugee, her quest will get attention and influence other parts of the state, especially the crucial Twin Cities suburbs, which could be the swing vote.  Scott Johnson's Powerline colleague John Hinderaker writes about the 'burbs' potential to swing the state here.

What gives me the most hope is that Omar is getting more extreme, driven by hatred.

Perhaps worry over her immigration fraud being prosecuted is exacerbating her previous TDS condition.

I grew up in Minnesota, in Omar's district, and know that Minnesotans are famously "nice" and that they worry about how the rest of the country views them.  With Omar attaining such prominence, she has to worry a lot of people about being tarred with her extremism.
