“A lot of the policies that we’ve put in place has kind of helped lead the devastation in Venezuela,” Omar said during an interview with “Democracy Now” this week. “And we’ve sort of set the stage for where we’re arriving today.”
Pence doubled down during a Fox News interview that aired Friday, saying that “the congresswoman doesn’t know what she’s talking about,” as IJR Red reported.
Omar responded to the criticism, calling it an attack on “women of color” to “make us feel small.”
Crenshaw told Fox News’ Martha MacCallum on Friday that Omar’s “opinion is one that is not based on facts or reality.”
