Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) lashed out on Wednesday when she learned that Israel’s president will deliver a speech next week to the U.S. Congress.

The Messenger asked Omar about the President Isaac Herzog’s upcoming speech on July 19th – to which she first expressed outrage before admitting that she had no idea he was even coming.

Omar said that there was “no way in hell” that she would attend the speech, adding: “I didn’t even know he was coming.”

Omar, who has a long history of spewing anti-Semitic hate, generated pushback across the political spectrum over her remarks.

“She didn’t know until the reporter asked but had that strong of feelings about it?” tweeted News Nation reporter Zaid Jilani. “Herzog is more of a figurehead in the country, the president is not part of day to day governance like the PM, I don’t think most critics of Israel even have a strong feeling about him.”

Rabbi Yaakov Menken tweeted, “She will not be missed. In fact she should make it a habit. The best possible contribution she could make for American values, tolerance, and decency, is to permanently stay home. Why do Democrats persist in harboring this racist in their midst?”

Omar’s anti-Semitism has become so problematic that the House of Representatives voted to remove her from the House Foreign Affairs Committee.

Of the 222 Republicans in the House, 218 voted to remove Omar, while three did not vote and one, Rep. Dave Joyce (R-OH), voted “present.”

Speaker McCarthy outlined many of the inflammatory and bigoted remarks that Omar has made, including the use of anti-Semitic tropes, comparing the U.S. Military to Islamic terrorist organizations, describing the events of 9/11 as “some people did something,” among numerous other statements. McCarthy also noted that Omar has “never apologized” for many of her remarks.
