Nikki Haley, former United Nations Ambassador, unleashed hell on Democratic Representative Ilhan Omar after she sent out anti-semitic tweets this weekend.
Haley stated that Omar’s online statements “cannot be tolerated in our own Congress by anyone of either party.”
“To see this at the UN was a fight every day. This CANNOT be tolerated in our own Congress by anyone of either party. In a time of increased anti semitism, we all must be held to account. No excuses,” the former UN Ambassador posted to Twitter.

We previously reported of Omar’s tweets:
Democratic Minnesota Representative Ilhan Omar is proving to be almost as bad for the Democratic Party as self-proclaimed Democratic Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. This week, she made herself look like an anti-semitic fool when she accused a pro-Israel group of paying for influence over Congress. She went on to throw an offensive stereotype into the mix.
Breitbart News reported that “Omar began by re-tweeting Glenn Greenwald, co-founder of the Intercept, who has long been hostile to Israel. Greenwald had criticized House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (D-CA) for his comments to Breitbart News Saturday and other outlets, accusing Democrats of double standards in their reluctance to punish Omar and other Democrats for antisemitic rhetoric when they had eagerly censured Rep. Steve King (R-IA) for racist language.”
On Saturday, McCarthy told Breitbart, “Nancy Pelosi has not said a word. So that means she’s supportive of these actions” by Omar.
It was just last month that Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi showed her support for Omar to the House Foreign Affairs Committee, even though there was tons of controversy being stirred up regarding the Minnesota Democrat’s previous antisemitic comments, in addition to her radical foreign policy views which are clearly anti-Israel.
McCarthy told Breitbart News, “If [Pelosi] does not do something, we will take action on the floor.”
