During a recent interview, Democrat Rep. Ilhan Omar was asked about a series of remarks which have been deemed anti-Semitic by many, to which she did not seem sorry for.
When asked if she regrets certain comments, the congresswoman replied, “Regret is a strange word.”
Later in the interview, when pressed on her controversial remarks on the 9/11 terror attacks, Omar said “there is particular bias and a particular lens that people sort of critique the words I use.”
Since her election to Congress in the 2018 midterms, Omar has repeatedly drawn bipartisan backlash for comments regarding Israel and Jewish-American politicians, having discussed “dual loyalty” and other anti-Semitic tropes.
Additionally, Omar elicited the ire of Republicans for suggesting Senator Lindsey Graham was “compromised,” which many believed to be a homophobic slur.
