Democrat Rep. Ilhan Omar retweeted vile sentiments from actor Tom Arnold on Monday, justifying the violent attack on Senator Rand Paul by his neighbor — which left him with broken ribs and fluid in his lungs.
Arnold had tweeted, “imagine being Rand Paul’s next door neighbor and having to deal with Rand Paul lying cowardly circular whiney bullcrap about lawn clippings. No wonder he ripped his toupee off.”
“It was nice of her to provide even more evidence that she is a person with vile, anti-American beliefs and values, who apparently also supports violence for political disagreements,” Senator Paul’s Chief Strategist Doug Stafford told the Gateway Pundit, in response to Omar’s vicious retweet.
Paul’s neighbor was forced to pay $580,000 in damages after breaking six of the senator’s ribs during the violent attack.

The offensive tweet comes after Senator Paul offered to pitch on a flight for Rep. Omar to go back to Somalia.
Speaking to Breitbart News, Senator Paul said that he didn’t mean he wanted to forcibly send Rep. Omar to Somalia, but that he would happily contribute for her to go and take a look at what’s happening there.
“I’m willing to contribute to buy her a ticket to go visit Somalia. I think she can look and maybe learn a little bit about the disaster that is Somalia.”
