Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) posted a stand-up comedy bit from the late, legendary comedian George Carlin on her Twitter, claiming the United States is “not very good at anything” except war.
The video was from an appearance Carlin made in 1992 at the formerly named Paramount Theater at New York’s Madison Square Garden (now The Theatre at Madison Square Garden), according to Western Journalism.
“This country’s only 200 years old and already, we’ve had 10 major wars,” Carlin told his audience, according to a transcript of the show.
“We average a major war every 20 years in this country, so we’re good at it! And it’s a good thing we are; we’re not very good at anything else anymore!”
One Twitter user replied to Omar’s tweet, saying, “Why would a Congressperson post a video that includes the use of ‘f’ word?”
Another tweeted, “Absolutely shocking. Respect for liking Carlin. Squad is still a joke though.”
