Ilhan Omar selling sweary T-shirts saying ‘F*** around and find out’… and social media thinks it’s a dig at Trump

DEMOCRATIC Rep. Ilhan Omar is selling T-shirts with the message, “F**k around and find out,” an apparent swipe at outgoing President Donald Trump.

The “limited edition” unisex shirts carrying that message appeared on the Minnesota congresswoman’s online store for $30 a pop, in royal blue and gold.

It is very similar to what Omar said on the Deconstructed podcast days after Election Day, when Joe Biden took a considerable lead over Trump.

Leading up to Election Day, Trump attacked Omar at his campaign rallies, uttering xenophobic comments about her, claiming she hates the US and that Minnesotans would rather support him. 

However, Omar easily won reelection while Trump lost the state to Biden by more than 7 percentage points. 

Asked to comment on the election results, Omar said of Trump: “He effed around and found out, I guess.”

In addition to the T-shirts, Omar is selling packs of two vinyl stickers stating, “F**k around and find out,” for $5 in the same two colors. 

Both T-shirt and sticker purchases will be donations to “Ilhan Omar For Congress,” according to the website. 

Omar was born in Somalia, came to the US as a refugee in 1995 and became an American citizen in 2000.

But Trump in a campaign rally in Pennsylvania in mid-September said of Omar: “She’s telling us how to run our country. How did you do where you came from? How is your country doing?”

Trump attacked Omar again at a Sept. 30 campaign rally in Minnesota, saying: “She tells us how to run our country, can you believe it? How the hell did Minnesota elect her? What the hell is wrong with you people, right? What the hell happened?”

Omar hit back at Trump in a Washington Post interview in mid-November, likening his rallies to those of the white supremacist hate group Ku Klux Klan.

“He chose to speak about me at every single rally, it didn’t matter where he was—sometimes multiple times in a day, as he had held his Klan rallies throughout the country,” she said at the time. 

Omar is one of the first two Muslim women to be elected to Congress and part of “The Squad” of four progressive women who won seats in the House of Representatives in 2018. 

The three other Squad members—Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York, Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts and Rashida Tlaib of Michigan—also won reelection this year.

Omar’s store also offers shirts and stickers with the message, “Organized people beat organized money.”
