Rudy Giuliani condemned Rep. Ilhan Omar as the “future of the Democratic Party” in a retweet of a misleading video that’s been widely shared by conspiracy theorists.
The clip shows the Somali-born freshman congresswoman laughing in an interview in which she discusses taking a “terrorism class” at North Dakota State University — which offers a class focused on the history, tactics and motivations of terrorist groups.
“What is she laughing at in recalling her terrorism classes? This represents the future of the Democrat Party? God help us,” Giuliani, who is one of President Trump’s lawyers, tweeted late Thursday.
Critics have posted the short clip, claiming it shows the Minnesota Democrat admitting to taking “terrorism classes.”
Earlier this month, two Department of Homeland Security officials came under fire for social media posts about the video calling Omar a “trojan horse.”
“And this is what represents America?” wrote Immigration and Customs Enforcement agent Leslie Derewonko, who shared a post of the video.
Derewonko’s post was then “liked” by Jerry Templet, a top official at Homeland Security Investigations in San Francisco.
