Omar Retweets Person Saying Rand Paul Deserves to Be Violently Assaulted
The tweet was posted by Roseanne Barr’s ex-husband, Tom Arnold
Democratic Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar retweeted a Twitter post suggesting that Republican Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul deserved to be violently assaulted by his next-door neighbor.
The tweet was posted by Roseanne Barr’s ex-husband, Tom Arnold, who replied to Paul saying Omar would be more grateful to live in America if she paid more visits to her home country in Somalia.
“After she’s visited Somalia she might come back and appreciate America more,” Paul said in a recent interview.
“Imagine being Rand Paul’s next-door neighbor and having to deal with @RandPaul lying cowardly circular whiney bullcrap about lawn clippings. No wonder he ripped his toupee off.”
Paul was attacked from behind by his next-door neighbor while mowing his lawn in November 2017.
As a result, Paul suffered six broken ribs and pleural effusion.
Boucher pleaded guilty to a felony assault charge before being sentenced to 30 days in prison.
Paul received $580,000 in damages.
Various left-wing commentators and politicians mocked Paul after the attack, suggesting he deserved to be seriously injured or that the assault proves that he is weak.

Shameful behavior from one of the LEADING voices & faces of the dem party. Why is @IlhanMN retweeting this abhorrent tweet? We should never tolerate violence or promote it! @IlhanMN @TomArnold pic.twitter.com/mDh3Lb9LsL— Sergio Gor (@SergioGor) July 29, 2019
Omar split from her current husband amid allegations that she married her brother and questions about her immigration history continue to spiral.
According to a report by the Daily Mail, Omar has moved out of her family home, leaving her husband and three children behind, and is now living in a luxury apartment in Minnesota.
The reported split comes just as critics continue to demand answers as to whether she married her biological brother and whether the alleged marriage was part of a successful bid to cheat American immigration laws and get him into the United States.
Omar’s office did not immediately return to a request for comment.
