Well, Ilhan Omar just found out in Minnesota when she showed up at a huge concert put on by Somali singer Soldaan Seraar. The crowd not only booed her, but they also chanted “GET OUT” and “GET THE F**K OUT.”
Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar was booed by a mostly Somali crowd at a concert in her home state over the weekend, according to viral videos on social media. The incident took place at Somali singer Suldaan Seeraar's concert at the Target Center in Minneapolis on Saturday. The concert came during Somali Week, an annual event that this year marks the 62nd anniversary of independence in Somalia. At Saturday's concert, Omar, a Somali-American who is one of two Muslim women in Congress, went up on stage to present an award to the singer, who was performing for the first time in the U.S.

Like most liberals, she's now out-of-touch with the people who elected her. Too much traveling abroad with Nancy, instead of back home to work with the electorate.
"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.
"This's what she gets for trading her Godly, Conservative values for the sinful LGBTQIA's & the promiscuous abortionists," Shukri Abdirahman, a Somali refugee and military veteran who is running as a Republican to unseat Omar in Minnesota's 5th congressional district, wrote on Twitter.
Royce White, another Republican candidate in Omar's district, suggested Somalis were booing Omar because they're "starting to see the truth."
White said: "They're being misrepresented by bourgeois puppets, chosen by the establishment to exploit identity politics. In other words, Ilhan Omar is a sellout and I called it months ago."
as 10,000 Somail's booed her at a Concert in Minnesota and this thread even has the VIDEO.
