President Trump fiercely rebuked Congressional Democrats Friday for their flat-out refusal to condemn Rep. Ilhan Omar’s anti-Semitic rhetoric; saying they have officially become the ‘Anti-Jewish Party.’
“I thought yesterday’s vote by the House was disgraceful. The Democrats have become an anti-Israel party. They’ve become an anti-Jewish party. I thought that vote was a disgrace and so does everybody else if you get an honest answer,” said the President as he left the White House.

House Democrats passed a watered-down resolution Thursday that condemned all acts of “hatred,” scrapping Speaker Pelosi’s initial plan to directly rebuke Omar’s anti-Israeli remarks.
A NEW LOW: Rashida Tlaib Accuses STEVE SCALISE of ‘Islamophobia’ for Condemning Anti-Semitism
Recently sworn-in Rep. Rashida Tlaib blasted GOP Rep. Steve Scalise Wednesday evening; accusing the lawmaker of “Islamophobia” after he demanded Ilhan Omar be removed from the Foreign Affairs Committee for her anti-Semitic statements.
“Hard to watch Rep. Scalise demand that Rep. @IlhanMN be removed from House Foreign Affairs w/o wondering if it’s steeped in Islamophobia. Ilhan is more than capable of sitting on the committee & making decisions that are in the best interests of her constituents & all Americans,” posted Tlaib on social media.

BUSTED: Video Surfaces of Maxine Waters Warmly Embracing Louis Farrakhan
New footage emerged on social media this week showing firebrand Congresswoman Maxine Waters warmly embracing virulent anti-Semite and Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan; raising even more questions over the relationship between Farrakhan and prominent Democrats.
“Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA), who now leads the House Financial Services Committee, hugs racist and anti-Semite Louis Farrakhan,” posted a reporter from the Daily Wire. “Farrakhan has praised Hitler as being a ‘very great man,’ has called Judaism a ‘gutter religion,’ and compared Jews to ‘termites.’”

It is unclear when the footage was recorded.
The relationship between Farrakhan and leading liberal leaders made national headlines this week, when Women’s March organizer Tamika Mallory defended her previous comments that labeled the Nation of Islam leader the “greatest of all time.”
