Ilhan Omar Takes Shot at Meghan McCain's 'Faux Outrage'
The anti-Semitism saga embroiling Minnesota Democratic Representative Ilhan Omar took another turn Thursday as Meghan McCain—the daughter of late Arizona Republican Senator John McCain—said in an interview the congresswoman’s comments were “very dangerous.”
Appearing on ABC News’ “The View,” McCain joined the outpouring of anger against the freshman representative, who is accused of using anti-Semitic tropes to criticize the state of Israel and its American supporters. However, Fox News reported, Omar still refused to back down.
Last month, Omar replied to a tweet from a journalist suggesting that Minority House Leader Kevin McCarthy was planning to punish her for criticizing Israel by saying, “It’s all about the Benjamins baby,” referring to financial contributions made by pro-Israel Jewish lobbying groups to the GOP.
