Ilhan Omar is at the center of a growing scandal.
Calls for her resignation are heating up.
And her political troubles just went from bad to worse because of this one tweet.
Democrats were set to vote on a weak resolution that called out anti-Semitism without mentioning Omar by name.
But the left pitched a fit.
A growing number of Democrats hate Israel and did not want to see Omar punished for merely expressing a commonly held belief among many in the Democrat grassroots.
So leadership pulled the resolution.
Donald Trump responded to this ugly episode by calling out Omar and the Democrats’ cowardly leadership on Twitter.
The Daily Caller reports:
President Donald Trump criticized House Democrats on Wednesday for their handling of the allegations of anti-Semitism levied against Democratic Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar.
“It is shameful that House Democrats won’t take a stronger stand against Anti-Semitism in their conference,” Trump tweeted. “Anti-Semitism has fueled atrocities throughout history and it’s inconceivable they will not act to condemn it!”
Omar ruffled feathers with comments she made last regarding the Israel-Palestine conflict and the “dual loyalty” she feels like members of Congress have to the Jewish nation.
Omar’s controversy, and the ensuing liberal backlash, threw the Democrats off stride.
This was supposed to their big week for passing all their left-wing messaging bills to prove they could “deliver” on their campaign promises.
Instead, Democrats spent it proving to the world they are the party of hatred and bigotry.
