Ilhan Omar’s Anti-Semitic Tweet Draws Fire

Rep. Ilhan Omar drew fire Sunday evening from members of both parties for yet another tweet promoting anti-Semitic tropes.

“It’s all about the Benjamins, baby,” tweeted Omar in response to a Twitter post by journalist Glenn Greenwald criticizing GOP Rep. Kevin McCarthy for defending Israel against anti-Semitic remarks from Omar and Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI). Omar followed up with a tweet accusing prominent lobbying group AIPAC of paying Congress to support Israel.
