Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi has reportedly had enough with the fresh-faces of the Democratic Party; storming out of a meeting Wednesday after left-wing lawmakers rallied-around embattled Rep. Ilhan Omar.
“House Democratic leaders are struggling to contain the controversy over Rep. Ilhan Omar’s comments about Israel, with the caucus fighting behind closed doors over whether — and how — to respond,” reports Politico.
“We'll if you're not going to listen to me, I’m done talking,” Pelosi responded, before *literally* dropping the mic & walking out of the room. https://t.co/PYwha8O25o

“Well if you’re not going to listen to me, I’m done talking,” Pelosi told her colleagues before storming out of the room.

BACKLASH GROWS: Scalise Says Omar Should be REMOVED from Committee, BLOCKED from Intel
Rep. Steve Scalise joined the growing chorus of legislators calling for the removal of Ilhan Omar from the House Foreign Affairs Committee Tuesday; saying she should no longer have access to classified briefings regarding the State of Israel after her anti-Semitic rant.
“Right now, she sits on the Foreign Affairs Committee. She’s able to get classified briefings on foreign policy, especially as it relates to Israel. She’s made statements, anti-Israel, anti-Jewish statements, aligned herself with anti-Semitic people as well,” said Scalise.
“She should be removed from the Foreign Affairs Committee, Nancy Pelosi should remove her immediately,” he added.
BAD COMPANY: Farrakhan Defends Ilhan Omar’s Anti-Semitic Rant, Rails Against ‘Wicked Jews’
Nation of Islam leader and notorious anti-Semite Louis Farrakhan publicly praised embattled Rep. Ilhan Omar Sunday; saying she “has nothing to apologize for” after promoting vicious stereotypes on social media.
“The wicked Jews want to use me to break up the women’s movement,” Farrakhan said during his annual Saviours’ Day event. “It ain’t about Farrakhan; it’s about women all over the world [who] have the power to change the world.”
Farrakhan then defended Omar’s twitter tirade; saying “Ms. Omar from Somalia – she started talking about ‘the Benjamins’ and they are trying to make her apologize. Sweetheart, don’t do that. Pardon me for calling you sweetheart, but you do have a sweet heart. You sure are using it to shake the government up, but you have nothing to apologize for,” Farrakhan said. “Israel and AIPAC pays off senators and congressmen to do their bidding, so you’re not lying, so if you’re not lying. Stop laying down. You were sent there by the people to shake up that corrupt House.”
