Ilhan Omar couldn’t handle hearing her Rashida Tlaib’s profane impeachment comments read on the House Floor during statements prior to Wednesday’s vote, repeatedly screaming “Stop it!”
Video shows House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy recalling how Tlaib, on day one in Congress and in front of her son, told a group of supporters “we’re going to impeach the motherf*****.”
Fox News reports several journalists were able to identify Omar (D-MN) as the one heard repeatedly shouting to McCarthy to “stop it.”
“Those are not my words,” McCarthy responded to the outburst.

Tlaib Is An Embarrassment
Multiple sources claim Omar shouted for McCarthy to stop using Tlaib’s own words on the House floor three separate times.
What exactly is Omar trying to hide? That Tlaib and the Democrats have been plotting President Trump’s impeachment for well over two years, or the simple fact that Tlaib is a vile embarrassment to Congress?
“What’s the problem?” Daily Caller reporter Scott Morefield asked Omar on social media. “Truth hurt?”
“[Omar] is a disgrace,” one critic responded. “She cannot stand to listen to the truth. She is one and done. The good people of MN deserve far [better] than this derelict.
Rather than hide from it, Omar should sing it loud and proud. After all, Tlaib certainly does, having led crowds in similar chants and selling “impeach the MFer” t-shirts on her campaign site.
Don’t stop it, Ilhan. Own it.

Squad Members – Assemble
One thing is certain – no matter how disgusting or reprehensible one of their members will act, demeaning the office in which they hold – the Squad will always have each other’s back.
In an interview several months back, Reps. Omar and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez defended Tlaib’s comment as nothing more than a “boo-boo word.”
“Rashida got into a little bit of trouble for saying a boo-boo word,” AOC explained.
“I hit up Rashida, I sent her a text, and I was like, ‘Don’t worry about it, I mean who cares,’” the socialist said in her best high school, valley girl voice. “And she was like ‘Yeah, I’m from Detroit, back there that’s just what we call, ‘That guy.’”

The Squad repeatedly shows a willingness to back up each other’s comments – no matter how vile or bigoted.
This past May, Tlaib (D-MI) outrageously suggested in an interview that she gets a “calming feeling” when thinking about the Holocaust because Palestinians created a “safe haven” for some Jewish people.
Aside from being thoroughly insensitive, the comments were historically and categorically false.
Omar leaped to her defense, saying critics were simply taking her remarks out of context as a means to “eliminate” Muslim voices.
Likewise, when Omar got heat for dismissing 9/11 as an event in which “some people did something,” Tlaib jumped up and called her critics “racist.”
