Rep. Ilhan Omar continued to ruffle feathers in Washington, DC this week; bizarrely claiming President Trump was promoting a Venezuela ‘coup’ to install “far right” politicians as socialist President Nicolas Maduro’s regime crumbled.

“A US backed coup in Venezuela is not a solution to the dire issues they face. Trump’s efforts to install a far right opposition will only incite violence and further destabilize the region. We must support Mexico, Uruguay & the Vatican’s efforts to facilitate a peaceful dialogue,” she tweeted.

Omar’s Twitter account made national headlines this week when she posted -then quietly deleted- a message claiming the Covington Catholic students were using “racist chants” in a now-debunked viral video.
