Rep. Ilhan Omar Has Perfect Response To Meghan McCain’s Criticism After Synagogue Shooting
Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) shot back at conservative commentator Meghan McCain after “The View” co-host criticize the freshman congresswoman for comments she made while addressing the deadly shooting at a California synagogue.
Omar tweeted “bless her heart” in a post linking to a clip of McCain suggesting the Omar’s rhetoric that some have classified as anti-Semitic needs to be addressed following the shooting.
The Saturday shooting at the Chabad of Poway synagogue left one dead and the rabbi injured in the most recent attack at a place of worship.
McCain’s jab at Omar came during an interview on ABC’s “This Week” on Sunday.
“I do think when we are having conversations about anti-Semitism we should be looking at the most extreme on both sides, and I would bring up Congresswoman Ilhan Omar and some of her comments that got so much attention,” McCain said Sunday, bringing up Omar unprompted.
McCain added that she thought House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) “wasn’t hard enough in her response to [Omar] trafficking in anti-Semitic language.”
McCain and Omar have feuded in the past, most recently over what Omar classified as McCain’s “faux outrage” over her comments that were perceived as anti-Semitic.
