Samantha Bee Says Democrats Threw Ilhan Omar 'Under The Bus'

Four Republicans have proposed a new House Resolution specifically calling out Minnesota Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar on Thursday for previous comments she's made about Israel.

"In a conversation on Facebook, I used some language that I see now was insensitive".

Bee attempted to defend Omar by noting that she did apologize when enough pressure was put upon her, which was immediately undone by the fact that Omar later spoke about how the Israel lobby forces Jews to have "dual loyalty".

The thread stated, "This is a serious question: Do you not think that the American government and American Jewish community has a dual allegiance to the State of Israel?"

In her apology, Omar said that "anti-Semitism is real and I am grateful for Jewish allies and colleagues who are educating me on the painful history of anti-Semitic tropes".

It's typcally hard to replace an incumbent politician, even one as arguably polarizing as Omar, who in her first two months as a congresswoman has sparked contentious debates both as a country and within the party.

U.S. Rep Ilhan Omar (D-MN) speaks to media ...

The anti-Zionist obsession that Rep. Omar now brings to the halls of Congress aims to strip these six and a half million people from sovereignty and abandon them, stateless, to the mercy of genocidal neighbors.

It was not the first time Omar had been criticized for imputing that Israel's most vocal American backers had been in some way compromised by their support for the state, leading to Democratic infighting over how to respond.

Omar has provoked accusations of anti-Semitism against her with her chiding of Israel, suggesting at one point that it had "hypnotized the world" and prayed that Allah would "awaken" it.

Bee also pointed out that Omar is just one of a group of freshman representatives that are not satisfied with the status quo and have brought to the forefront a number of hard and long-overdue conversations, including that of Israel and Palestine, and she encouraged Democrats to take control of that conversation. But Hunegs said Omar didn't care.
