Cheney Unloads on ‘Anti-Semitic Socialist’ Omar for Mocking the GOP’s Desire to End Russia Conspiracy

Congresswoman Liz Cheney (R-Wy.) unloaded on Congresswoman Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) after the Minnesota congresswoman mocked Republicans on Twitter.

During their weekly press conference, the Republican leadership called out Democrats for refusing to accept the findings of the report from Special Counsel Robert Mueller that President Donald Trump never colluded with Russians during the 2016 election.

Cheney — who serves as the chair of the House Republican Conference — claimed that Democrats played into Russian President Vladimir Putin’s hands by continuing to divide Americans with never-ending investigations undermining Trump.

Watch:

“Clearly what the Democrats in the Judiciary Committee are doing is undermining our democracy and helping Vladimir Putin. If you look at what we know and what we know from the Mueller report and other places, it’s absolutely clear that the Russians have attempted — a number of them were indicted — for attempting to influence, undermine our democratic processes and the Democrats on the Judiciary Committee are doing exactly what Vladimir Putin would do if he could.”

Omar took to Twitter with this clip and mocked Republicans for claiming that Democrats are playing into Putin’s hand. She then took a swing at Cheney’s father, former Vice President Dick Cheney, and said, “This is an impressive lie even for the Cheney family.”

The Wyoming congresswoman didn’t take this insult sitting down. She fired back at Omar Friday morning and called out her repeated use of anti-Semitic tropes, her resurfaced criticisms of U.S. soldiers during the “Black Hawk Down” battle, and her recent claim that the U.S. is “bullying” Venezuelan Dictator Nicolas Maduro.

Cheney claimed Omar “doesn’t recognize the truth when she hears it.”

This is not the first time the two congresswomen have picked a fight on Twitter. Recently, Cheney called out Omar for her defense of the repeated rocket attacks at Israel from the Gaza Strip by the terrorist organization Hamas.

It doesn’t look as though the feud between Cheney and Omar will end anytime soon as both members refuse to back down when called out by the other.

Omar is an embarrassment to the US and should have her American citizenship revoked since she – as a Muslim – shows no signs of joining the normal population of the United States. I’d suggest giving her a few more diapers for her head and deporting her back to her sh**hole – Somali.
