Giuliani Gets Bashed Online Over ‘Ilhan Omar at Terrorist Training Camp’ Meme

While the photo featured in the meme appears to be authentic, it was taken at a military training camp in Somalia several years before Ilhan Omar was born.

US President Donald Trump’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani ended up getting flak online after sharing a meme alleging that Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar was spotted at a terrorist training camp.

The meme in question, which was debunked by fact-checker PolitiFact last year, features a black-and-white photo of a woman holding a gun, with the following caption: “Here is your precious Muslim congresswoman at a Al’ Qaida training camp in Somalia”.

Said photo, however, while being authentic, was taken at a military training campus in Somalia in 1978, some three years before Omar was born, as the fact-checker noted.

“Can we get rest of this picture?” Giuliani inquired while sharing the aforementioned meme with his sizeable Twitter audience.
