Asked if they would condemn violence from the Antifa firebomber, AOC and Ilhan Omar did not respond.
Omar started laughing, though it’s unclear if she was laughing at the question or about something unrelated.
After repeatedly asking @Ilhan and @AOC if they would condemn the Antifa firebomber, and if they felt partly responsible, the two got into their SUV and Omar (likely thinking she was off camera) burst into ear to ear laughter. Was there ever a doubt Omar hated America? pic.twitter.com/7OREVpwfSj

Omar was likewise silent while walking to the car and being asked the same question.

Monday, Omar refused to answer if she condemned Al Qaeda.
What most would be expect to be a simple “of course I do response
was quite different.
Instead, Omar answered “It’s beyond time to ask Muslims to condemn terrorists, we are no longer going to allow the dignification of such ridiculous, ridiculous statements.”
.@IlhanMN was asked to respond to Trump's claim that she supports al Qaeda.
She wouldn't and she didn't. She refused to condemn al Qaeda.
