The President’s comments came just hours before House Speaker Nancy Pelosi demanded an “immediate apology” from Rep. Ilhan Omar for a series of anti-Semitic tweets.
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.”
GREEN NEW STEAL: Dem Senator Says Socialism Means ‘Increasing Living Standards’ for Seniors
Democratic Sen. Jeff Merkley defended the concept of American socialism from President Trump’s scathing critique this week; saying liberal policies are simply seeking to “increase the living standard of our seniors.”
Merkley was speaking with CNN’s Erin Burnett when she asked the left-wing legislator to comment on President Trump’s State of the Union address where he claimed America “will never be a socialist” country.
“Well, it is a society coming together to increase the standard of living of our seniors, and that is pretty much the definition. And the president’s attacking it,” Merkley said.
