Happy Hour News Briefs
Possum Hollar’s Chris McDonald really thinks that Rep. Ilhan Omar said that she wants to enslave white men for not submitting to Islam. So where did he get this idea? What’s that you say? Facebook?
In her Daily Show appearance, Noah told Omar she had a unique story, coming to the United States a refugee, being a Muslim, and a woman. “You are everything that President Trump seems to be against. And you are in government. What’s the plan?” Noah asked Omar.
“I am America’s hope and the president’s nightmare,” Omar responded.
At no point in that interview did Omar say anything about white men in chains as slaves for not submitting to Islam.
Omar also did not say in the Time magazine interview, even though the meme uses the photo from that interview. We found no evidence that Omar made those comments.
Without credible evidence for the assertion, we rate the statement Pants on Fire!
