Rep Ilhan Omar's (D-MN) latest dig against President Donald Trump includes her selling merchandise with the message “F**k around and find out" which alluded to her comments from when she appeared on the Deconstructed podcast last month when it was announced that president-elect Joe Biden had taken a lead in the 2020 election against the incumbent POTUS.

The “limited edition” unisex shirts carrying that message were featured on the Minnesota congresswoman’s online store. They were priced at $30 a pop and appeared in royal blue and gold. Apart from the T-shirts, Omar also appeared to be selling packs of two vinyl stickers stating, “F**k around and find out,” for $5 in the same two colors. According to the website, both T-shirt and sticker purchases will be donations to “Ilhan Omar For Congress".

Leading up to election day, Trump attacked Omar at his campaign rallies, uttering xenophobic comments about her and claiming she had hatred for the country and that Minnesotans should support him over her. However, Trump ended up losing the state to Biden by more than 7 percentage points while Omar faced no difficulties in winning the state. When she was asked during the podcast how Trump could have been so wrong to think that he would take Minnesota easily, Omar said of Trump: “He effed around and found out, I guess" - a statement which seemed to have inspired the artwork fr the T-shirts as well as the stickers.

She further added at the podcast that “You get what you organize for,” and, “We have been massively organizing our state and district for this turnout.” Omar’s store also offers shirts and stickers with the message, “Organized people beat organized money."

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 also attacked Omar at a campaign rally later that month, 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, comparing 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.

Trump has been attacking Omar, along with the three other Democratic congresswomen who are collectively often referred to as “the squad” — Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts, Rashida Tlaib of Michigan, and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York. All the four have opposed Trump strongly, and he has repeatedly lashed out at them and their vision of America.

"In 2016 I almost won Minnesota. In 2020, because of America hating anti-Semite Rep. Omar, & the fact that Minnesota is having its best economic year ever, I will win the State! 'We are going to be a nightmare to the President,' she say. No, AOC Plus 3 are a Nightmare for America!" he wrote in a tweet ast year, while adding in another, "The 'Squad' is a very Racist group of troublemakers who are young, inexperienced, and not very smart. They are pulling the once great Democrat Party far left, and were against humanitarian aid at the Border...And are now against ICE and Homeland Security. So bad for our Country!"
