‘Mini Ilhan Omar’ Kills It With Spot On Impersonation
First there was ‘Mini AOC’ — Ava Martinez, 8, of Lake Forest, Ca., who along with her stepfather have been posting hilarious videos of her impersonating Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY).
Now comes ‘Mini Ilhan Omar’, and her take on the Muslim lawmaker from Minnesota is giving Mini-AOC a run for her money.
“Greetings, as-Salaam-Alaikum. To my family and friends, I say salutations,” she says. “You may have seen my friend, AOC. She’s a cool person. I’m a little cooler.
“My name is Ilhan Omar and I am the first woman of color from Minnesota to serve in Congress. We came a long way from Somal — Uh, I mean, Minnesota — and now I’m her at the White House.
“I am happy to be Donald Trump’s equal,” says the mini-version of the first-term lawmaker, who has been in the job since January. “Women of color, like me and AOC, shows that anyone can make it in America. I am a refugee and I’ve done so much for refugees that I think we should make all illegal immigration legal immigration so anybody can come to America without background checks.
“My fellow congresswoman, AOC, has put out a new deal, called the Green New Deal. I think if we put out the Green New Deal, it will help all of the undocumented immigrants first. Those are the people I think deserve to get American taxpayer dollars before Americans.
“We need to tear down the border so my Somali family — uh, I mean, undocumented immigrants — can come into our nation.”

The Mini-AOC also hits a spot-on impression, this one of Ocasio-Cortez.
“Like, hello America, AOC here again,” Ava says in one video. “But this time from Washington, D.C., which is named after our first president — George Washington D.C.”
“Like, I want to tell you about my plan to single-handedly save the planet. I call it the Green New Deal. I picked green because I’m still learning my colors. I came up with my plan after we were watching, like, the most important documentary on climate change. It’s called Ice Age 2: The Meltdown,” she says, referring to the animated 2006 hit movie. “That’s not me saying it, that’s science.”
As long as Ava #miniAOCofficial enjoys doing these videos she will continue to keep making them and as long as #AlexandriaOcasioCortez keeps being #AOC we will have plenty of material to keep making them as well. Thanks again to everyone who had kind things to say about Ava. pic.twitter.com/Je7YojRoXd
