Facepalm: Not Even Chelsea Clinton Could Stomach This Democratic Congresswoman’s Anti-Semitic Nonsense

Reps. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) and Ilhan Omar (D-MN) are on a roll. Both are far left members of Congress and have stepped in it from the get-go. First, they both support the viciously anti-Israel Boycotts, Disinvestment, Sanctions movement, which has been accused of anti-Semitism. Tlaib declared that House Democrats were going to “impeach the motherf**ker,” regarding President Trump. And now Omar posted an anti-Semitic tweet that was so bad that even Chelsea Clinton had to call her out for it. The Washington Post has the backstory:

Republicans are focusing their ire at the two Muslim women in Congress, accusing them of anti-Semitism and pressuring Democratic leaders to rebuke the lawmakers as attitudes in the party toward Israel shift from unquestioned support.

The pressure on Reps. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) and Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) is part of a larger GOP effort to drive a partisan wedge into the traditionally nonpartisan relationship between the United States and Israel. Republicans are casting themselves as the more resolute defender of Israel, heightening the party’s appeal to traditionally Democratic Jewish voters.

The Democratic Party’s renewed internal debate over Israel is certain to have repercussions in 2020 for congressional candidates as well as White House hopefuls challenging President Trump, whose unwavering support of Israel and recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital have won plaudits in the Jewish state.

So, how did Omar respond? By tweeting, “it’s all about the Benjamins.” Yeah, a rather bigoted tweet, huh? CNN’s Jake Tapper also zeroed in on the anti-Semitic undertones in the tweet. 

Our friends at Twitchy sifted through this left-wing trash and found that she was trying to slam AIPAC. That also was a disastrous pivot:

Alas, the final act of this anti-Semitic train wreck. Yikes:

Too late...the damage is done.
