TBS late-night host Samantha Bee launched a passionate defense of the far-left Congresswoman Ilhan Omar, accusing her fellow Democrats of failing to defend her over her numerous anti-semitic remarks.
Omar has faced widespread criticism in recent weeks from Democrats and Republicans for various anti-semitic remarks regarding the state of Israel, including that claims that Zionist Americans show “allegiance to a foreign country.” The controversy led to Democrats in the house passing a resolution condemning anti-Semitism and all other bigotry, although Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi claimed she was misinterpreted.
However, Samantha Bee was left less than impressed with their behavior, arguing that Democrats such as Pelosi are willing to use Omar to show off a progressive image but “threw her under the bus” when she tried to discuss a “truly difficult topic.”
“Democrats want to be the big tent diverse party,” Full Frontal host declared.
Last week, Breitbart News revealed that some Democrats have grown frustrated with Omar’s anti-semitic beliefs, having previously accused Israel of “hypnotizing the world,” that they intend to launch a primary challenge against her in 2020.
