Former UN Ambassador Nikki Haley unloaded on Rep. Ilhan Omar for her anti-Semitic twitter tirade over the weekend; saying her comments “cannot be tolerated in our own Congress by anyone of either party.”
“To see this at the UN was a fight every day. This CANNOT be tolerated in our own Congress by anyone of either party. In a time of increased anti semitism, we all must be held to account. No excuses,” posted Haley.

OMAR ERUPTS: Rep. Omar Says US Officials ‘TORTURING’ ‘Little Girls’ at Southern Border
Recently sworn-in Rep. Ilhan Omar unloaded on US authorities and Border Patrol Agents this week; accusing federal immigration officials of “torturing” and detaining “little girls” along the US-Mexico border.
Rep. Omar was speaking at a press conference alongside fellow Democrats Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Rashida Tlaib at the US Capitol when she made her vicious comments.
“The difference between what is happening to some of those little girls and me is that I didn’t have a cage waiting for me,” Omar said. “They are separated and processed. They are detained and tortured. And we can’t continue to allow that to happen. At least not under our watch.”
OMAR EXPLODES: Rep. Ilhan Omar Says She ‘Chuckles’ When Americans Call Israel a ‘Democracy’
Recently sworn-in Congresswoman Ilhan Omar found herself in hot-water Thursday over renewed accusations of anti-Semitism; saying she routinely “chuckles” when Americans refer to Israel as a Democracy.
Omar was speaking during a recent interview when she was asked to comment on her previous comments that the Jewish State has “hypnotized the world.”
“We still uphold it as a democracy in the Middle East I almost chuckle because I know that if we see that any other society we would criticize it, call it out,” said Omar. “We do that to Iran, we do that to any other place that sort of upholds its religion. And I see that now happening with Saudi Arabia and so I am aggravated, truly, in those contradictions.”
