Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) had time Wednesday morning when she clapped back at President Trump’s call for her to resign, noting that the president has trafficked in hate his whole life.
In a tweet, the president’s preferred mode of communication because he’s basically a 13-year-old 7th grader, Omar tweeted:
You know that Omar’s initial tweet ended with “When will you, bitch?” Fine, she didn’t say “bitch,” but I feel like there is an implied bitch at the end of the statement. OK, fine, maybe I just want it
Omar apologized for the tweet noting, “Anti-Semitism is real and I am grateful for Jewish allies and colleagues who are educating me on the painful history of anti-Semitic tropes,” Omar wrote. “My intention is never to offend my constituents or Jewish Americans as a whole. We have to always be willing to step back and think through criticism, just as I expect people to hear me when others attack me for my identity. This is why I unequivocally apologize.”
Trump told reporters Tuesday that Omar’s apology was “lame” and reiterated his demand for her resignation.“Anti-Semitism has no place in the United States Congress,” Trump said at a Cabinet meeting. “And I think she should either resign from Congress or she should certainly resign from the House Foreign Affairs Committee.”
Trump failed to mention that he’s a racist-filed whoopee-cushion who lives off a diet of baby goat’s blood and fast food, who would be fine if we went back to Jim Crow laws and only has one black friend: Ben Carson.
