Democratic Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar reacted to Tucker Carlson’s criticism of the freshman congresswoman being “enraged” by America, saying it’s “fun watching a racist fool weeping” about her presence in Congress.
“Not gonna lie, it’s kinda fun watching a racist fool like this weeping about my presence in Congress,” Omar tweeted, adding laughing emojis. “No lies will stamp out my love for this country or my resolve to make our union more perfect. They will just have to get used to calling me Congresswoman!”
Omar’s comment was in response to a segment on “Tucker Carlson Tonight” in which Carlson contended hours earlier that the Minnesota congresswoman is a “living fire alarm” and a warning for America to “change our immigration system immediately or else.”
“Ilhan Omar has an awful lot to be grateful for, but she isn’t grateful, not at all,” Carlson said. “After everything America has done for Omar and her family, she hates this country more than ever.”
