The battle between Republican Rep. Liz Cheney and Democrat Rep. Ilhan Omar is heating up.
Omar is lashing out at Cheney after the Republican slammed Rep. Rashida Tlaib for saying “There’s a calming feeling I always tell folks when I think of the Holocaust.”
Cheney blasted Tlaib’s comment and her defense of it as “a fantasy based on lies spread to delegitimize the state of Israel.”
That prompted Omar to come to Tlaib’s defense in an attack that blatantly accusing Cheney of Islamophobia.
Omar may claim to be fighting on Tlaib’s behalf, but she likely still sore over the lashing she took from Cheney just days before on Twitter.
The fight is one sided though. Where as Tlaib and Omar seem to be sticking up for one another, that’s about it. Most Democrats have just barely managed damage control in the aftermath of their outrageous comments and none support statements like Tlaib has made about the Holocaust.
