Democratic Congresswoman Ilhan Omar’s decision to recently delete a Father’s Day tweet from 2013 is causing quite the stir online.
From screenshots of the tweet, it reportedly read: Happy Father’s Day to my aabo Nur Said, I am forever grateful to Allah for giving me the best father a..” before a link to an Instagram post which has also been deleted.
One America News Network’s Jack Posobiec reported that Omar first deleted the post, sharing a photo of it and tagging the congresswoman.
He captioned the photo with the question: “Why did you delete your Happy Father’s Day tweet?”

The tweet seems to be taken from another account, Imam of Peace, which also shared the screenshot and claimed the post was deleted as Omar’s husband and father shared the same surname.
“Ilhan Omar has just deleted this tweet from 2013 that proves her father is Nur Said, which makes her Ilhan Nur Said (surnames are the fathers names in most Muslim/MENA countries), and that Ahmed Nur Said, who she married, is, in fact, her brother,” the account said.
BizPac Review reports:
Conservative sleuths believe they’ve uncovered indisputable evidence proving that anti-Semitic Muslim Rep. Ilhan Omar did indeed marry her own brother for the purposes of committing immigration fraud.
The proof is a tweet she posted on Jun 16, 2013. Though the actual tweet has since been deleted, a Google search showed that it was still archived by the search engine as of Tuesday morning.
Since at least the time that she began her career in politics, Omar has been publicly identifying her father as Nur Omar Mohamed. Members of the left-wing media, including Snopes and The Washington Post, have also listed him, not Nur Said, as her father.
Why then did she wish this mysterious Nur Said — whom she’d described as her “aabo,” an Arabic term for father — happy Father’s Day in the tweet she’d posted in 2013? Why then does she identify as Ilhan Omar versus Ilhan Nur Said? And what then explains the name of her former husband?

Ladies, are we being too hard on @IlhanMN? Haven't we all changed our name, married our brother, left our boyfriend & kids behind to shack up with a married guy from work, spouted anti-American garbage from Congress & forgot about that one tweet that uncovers a lifetime of lies? https://t.co/ZLdsAFCHKM
