(Reuters) – President Barack Obama on Friday called Huma Abedin, a top aide to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, an “American patriot” after a group of Republican lawmakers accused her of having ties to the Muslim Brotherhood, an Islamist political organization.

“She has been nothing less than extraordinary in representing our country and the democratic values that we hold dear,” Obama said at a White House Iftar dinner celebrating the Islamic holy month of Ramadan.

“The American people owe her a debt of gratitude because Huma is an American patriot and an example of what we need in this country — more public servants with her sense of decency, her grace and her generosity of spirit.”

  1. Post-modern thinking is that facts, evidence, and objective truth are irrelevant. There are only competing narratives, and those who hold the power are free to fabricate their narrative as they see fit.

  2. She’s committed to treachery. What a lying scumbag this president is. I pray to God he is voted out in November, then this Islamist can be found guilty of aiding terrorists.
