Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), the refugee who hates the country that gave her prosperity, condemned all Republicans as a bunch of bigots who loathe Muslims.
“Kevin McCarthy is a liar and a coward,” Omar told CNN’s State of the Union. “He doesn’t have the ability to condemn the kind of bigoted Islamophobia and anti-Muslim rhetoric being trafficked by a member.”
Omar was referring to the aftermath of a joke that Rep. Lauren Boebert told her constituents. Boebert apologized publicly and then called Omar. But the Democrat congresswoman hung up the phone.
Host Jake Tapper asked why the House Minority Leader would not condemn Boebert’s joke.
“This is who they are,” she replied.
Republicans are not bigots. They are not Islamophobic. As a matter of fact, there are plenty of Republican Muslims in this nation.
Republicans are a big tent party and they are more than happy to break bread with any religion or person that doesn’t want to blow us all to smithereens.
