Meghan McCain Blasts Omar's Anti-Semitism in Emotional Remarks on "The View"

ALEXANDRIA VA- APRIL 27 House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi speaks during an event at Northern Virginia Community College

Omar told Democratic House leadership earlier in the week that she was prepared to vote in favor of a resolution created to condemn her own remarks on Israel, two senior congressional aides told The Jerusalem Post on Thursday.

Cheney opposed a resolution passed in the House on Thursday that condemned various forms of hate.

Trump has sought to use the resolution against Democrats, arguing on Friday that the party has become "anti-Israel" and "anti-Jewish".

The party's House leadership reworded the statement to include other forms of bigotry - all while facing pressure from progressive Democrats who are defending Omar. "The expansion of its scope - from antisemitism alone to "all hate" - was a bid to end dissension among Democrats over freshman congresswoman Omar's latest remarks on Israel".

In response, the Democratic party argued over whether Omar should be singled out and what other types of bias should be decried in the text of the House resolution.

Of course, Nancy Pelosi was appropriately, but unconvincingly, shocked by the comment, while at the same time defending and criticizing Ms. Omar as a bumbling fool for not being able to predict the hurt her remarks would cause other people.

Pulwama Attack: Pakistan rebuffs Indian media reports of rejecting dossier
Pakistan has disputed these claims, insisting the warplanes didn't target any terrorist infrastructure. He also said that Pakistan is still in a state of denial.

The one-sided 407-23 vote Thursday belied the emotional infighting over how to respond to freshman Rep. lIhan Omar's recent comments suggesting House supporters of Israel have dual allegiances.

All 23 votes against the resolution came from Republican representatives, many of whom did so on grounds that the resolution did not mention Omar by name.

"I don't think this is just about comments by Congresswoman Omar, which I do not think were intentionally anti-Semitic".

Omar faced enormous pressure from all sides of the political spectrum and apologized for her earlier comments.

As the 2020 presidential campaign gets underway, the Democrats are again showing their biggest opponent is not Donald Trump, it's themselves. Last week, Pelosi was mugging on the cover of the celebratory issue of Rolling Stone with Omar and her bestie, apologist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

I say this as somebody who is no stranger from feeling alienated from a political party. "It is shameless considering his own not only failing to condemn Charlottesville on the first try".

Turkey brushes off USA warning over S-400 Russian missile purchase

"Today is historic on many fronts", they wrote.

"I do not believe she understood the full weight of her words".

A number of the House Republicans who voted against the resolution argued that Democrats should have directly rebuked Omar and her comments, but failed to do so because the resolution did not mention her by name or focus exclusively on rejecting anti-Semitism.

Sen. Brian Schatz, a Democrat from Hawaii, also reacted Friday to an official White House Twitter account's tweet featuring video of Trump's statement about the Democratic Party. "Our nation is having a hard conversation".

U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) has reportedly been spearheading a resolution explicitly condemning anti-Semitism that he plans to introduce early next week.
