As we previously reported, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a socialist Rep. from New York, made a bigger fool than usual by trying to make Tuesday’s “arrest video” look dramatic. She held her hands behind her back as she was being taken away. It gave the impression that she was being handcuffed, even though it wasn’t.
AOC’s arrest was one of 16 arrests made on Democratic members of Congress including fellow radicals Cori Bush (Mo.) Ayanna Pressley, Massachusetts. The Capitol Police gathered in front of the nation’s highest court to “protest” the June ruling by the SCOTUS which overturned Roe. Wade.
Ilhan Omar, a member of the Squad (Minn.), also was arrested. Initial reports by WCCO (Minneapolis), anchor Esme Murphy stated that a Facebook clip showed “a woman appearing to be Rep Omar” in handcuffs:

Murphy stated later that Omar was “confirmed by his staff” to be video of Omar under arrest and handcuffed .”
“Staff confirms this is video of Rep @ilhanmn under arrest and in handcuffs, she and other female Members were arrested in a protest supporting abortion rights in front of the Supreme Court today,” she tweeted.
Although you can’t see it, if you look at the end of the video you will notice that Omar raises one hand in support of the crowd. You can see it in the screengrabs

Laughably Murphy attempted to save herself by retweeting that “it wasn’t clear” Omar was being held in handcuffs, even though it is evident at the end of the video.
“Correction : it’s not clear in this video of @ilhanmn that she is in handcuffs – staff says she has been taken into custody along with other MOC during a pro abortion rights protest – it looks at the end of the clip that she is not in cuffs,” Murphy wrote.
“It seems like she was not in the cuffs. She wasn’t in cuffs. Thank you for all your hard work to regain the trust that the media lost in the past decade, ma’am:

Perhaps even more funny, “Ilhan Omar” and “Pretending” trended for a while on Twitter together as people got more into the usual theatrics displayed by Omar’s partners in crime.

The “punishment” Omar received from her coworkers was, unsurprisingly, a hand-wringing in the grand scheme of things.
According to Murphy, “Rep Omar says she was given a ticket and will have to pay $50 dollar fine. She was not fingerprinted, but her picture was taken during her time in custody. She was arrested along with other MOC females today as they protested at the Supreme Court for Abortion Rights .”
That, my dear readers, is what Democrat privilege looks like.
