WATCH: Omar calls McCarthy “a liar and a coward” for Defending Boebert

Appearing on CNN, Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar called House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy “a liar and a coward” for not publicly condemning GOP Rep. Lauren Boebert over her comments about the progressive “squad” member.

“Lauren Boebert, as I called her when it came forward, we talked. She apologized publicly. She apologized personally,” McCarthy has said regarding Boebert’s comments about Omar. “In disagreements and something goes astray, you apologize for it – exactly what Lauren Boebert did.”
