Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar was booed by a massive crowd of mostly Somalis at a concert in her home state over the weekend.
How embarrassing for the radical, far-left Democrat!
The incident occurred at Somali singer Suldaan Seeraar’s concert at the Target Center in Minneapolis on Saturday.
The concert took place during Somali Week, an annual event marking the anniversary of Somalia independence.
Omar, a Somali-American who is one of two Muslim women in Congress, walked onstage at the event to present an award to the singer, who was performing for the first time in the U.S.
Watch the crowd’s reaction to seeing Ilhan Omar grace the stage:

“It was an honor to welcome you to our incredible city,” the Democratic congresswoman wrote in a tweet, alongside a 14-second clip that ended moments after the audience began to boo loudly.
Longer clips shared on social media show the audience booed for at least a minute after Omar and her husband came up on stage.
One video shared on Twitter has amassed more than a million views. The clip shows that some in the crowd chanted “Get out!” while others were heard yelling “get the f**k out of here!”
The clip also shows Omar struggling to speak over the noise, while another person on stage repeatedly tells the crowd “don’t do this.”
“Okay, okay, okay, okay, okay, we don’t have all night,” Omar said at one point, as the crowd continued to boo.

It wasn’t clear what prompted the crowd’s viscous reaction to seeing Omar onstage.
Some suggested that it’s Omar’s support for abortion and LGBTQ rights.
