Minnesota Congresswoman Ilhan Omar got some bad news.
And Omar did not take the setback well.
That led to Ilhan Omar throwing this insane temper tantrum after losing her job.
Republicans voted to remove Ilhan Omar from the House Foreign Affairs Committee following her anti-Semitic remarks.
House Speaker Kevin McCarthy used the precedent set by Nancy Pelosi in the last Congress.
Omar defended herself with an unhinged rant on the floor of the House during the debate over the resolution kicking her off the Foreign Affairs Committee.
Naturally, Omar blamed the entire thing on Donald Trump for claiming Barack Obama was born in Kenya which somehow meant every attack on Omar for being anti-Semitic was racist.
Omar claimed because she was Muslim and an immigrant from Africa her identity rendered her immune from criticism.
“It’s no accident that former President Donald Trump led a birther movement that falsely claimed he was born in Kenya. Because to them, falsely labeling the first and only [Black] president a Muslim, an African immigrant somehow made him less American. Well, I am Muslim, I am an immigrant, and interestingly, from Africa. Is anyone surprised that I am being targeted? Is anyone surprised that I am somehow deemed unworthy to speak about American foreign policy? Or that they see me as a powerful voice that needs to be silenced? Frankly, it is expected. Because when you push power, power pushes back,” Omar began.
But the resolution cited Omar’s bigoted remarks including comparing the United States and Israel to the Taliban and Hamas, saying “it’s all about the Benjamins, baby” when referring to her anti-Semitic belief that wealthy Jews bought influence over American foreign policy, and calling Israel an “apartheid state.”
Omar then claimed Republicans criticizing her for being anti-Semitic was an affront to the American dream.
“Representation matters. Continuing to expand our ideas of who is American and who can partake in the American experiment, is a good thing. I am an American, an American who was sent here here by her constituents to represent them in Congress,” Omar added.
“I will continue to speak up, because representation matters,” Omar continued.
The fact that an anti-Semite like Omar considered herself a leader made it self-explanatory why Republicans felt they needed to remove her from the Foreign Affairs Committee.
“My leadership and voice will not be diminished if I am not on this committee for one term,” Omar declared. “My voice will get louder and stronger and my leadership will be celebrated around the world as it has been.”
Finally, Omar made an even bigger fool out of herself by posting an image of her wearing a wristband that read “God bless whoever hating on me.”

That Omar could not understand her racist remarks made her the hater was all Republicans felt needed to be said about kicking her off the Foreign Affairs Committee.
