Ilhan Omar Blasted For Smearing Jewish Trump Administration Official

Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) smeared Senior Adviser to the President Stephen Miller on Monday, falsely claiming that Miller, who is Jewish, was a white nationalist.

“Stephen Miller is a white nationalist,” Omar tweeted. The fact that he still has influence on policy and political appointments is an outrage.”

Omar included in her tweet a link to a fringe website that called Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell a “b*tch” last week after an old video of him falling resurfaced. This is the type of website that Omar often gets her news from. McConnell has a problem walking up stairs because he has a partially paralyzed leg that he got from having polio as a child.

Miller has been in the news recently for reportedly being behind the recent personnel shakeup in the Trump administration.

“Miller is the Trump administration’s most influential advocate for stricter immigration policies,” Politico reported. “Frustrated by the lack of headway on a signature Trump campaign issue, the senior White House adviser has been arguing for personnel changes to bring in more like-minded hardliners.”

Omar’s latest attack on a Jewish member of the Trump administration drew strong condemnation online from people in the media, the president’s son, members of Congress, and various political figures.

Donald Trump Jr. tweeted: “I see that the head of the Farrakhan Fan Club, @IlhanMN, took a short break from spewing her usual anti-semitic bigotry today to accuse a Jewish man of being a “white nationalist” because she apparently has no shame.”

Arthur Schwartz tweeted: “Very on brand for notorious Jew-hating bigot @IlhanMN to be smearing and attacking a Jewish man like Stephen Miller.”

Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-NY) tweeted: “During my time in Congress before @IlhanOmar got here, I didn’t once witness another Member target Jewish people like this with the name calling & other personal attacks. In 2019 though, for @IlhanOmar, this is just called Monday.”

John Cardillo tweeted: “Look, anti-Semite @IlhanMN is attacking the Jewish WH domestic policy advisor. She finds it “an outrage” that a Jewish man has influence on policy.”

Joel Pollak tweeted: “Steve Miller is a Jew. An American Jew. A patriot. Not a ‘white nationalist.’ I don’t believe you should be calling a Jew anything, Ms. Omar.”

Adelle Malka Nazarian tweeted: “I have known Stephen Miller thru work for many years. He’s in no way, shape, or form a white nationalist. The fact is, Ilhan is a liar & this anti-Semite’s attempt to label a Jew, whose relatives fled an actual white supremacist (Hitler), in this way is a form of delegitimization.”

Jason Rantz tweeted: “Ilhan Omar is an anti-Semite. The fact that she still has influence on foreign policy is an outrage.”

Erielle Davidson tweeted: “An anti-Semite labeling a Jewish person a ‘white nationalist’ is peak Leftism.”

Derek Hunter tweeted: “Miller is Jewish. It’s no wonder Adolf Omar hates him.”

Jim Hanson tweeted: “You do love throwing the epithets around don’t you? Lots of hate in your heart Of course you had no idea he was Jewish or you could have pointed out he’s probably raking in the Benjamins with this.”
