Trump Shows Support for Tucker Carlson in Dispute With Rep. Omar

Rep. Ilhan Omar D-Minn. speaks at the 2019 Essence Festival at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center on Saturday

Carlson, who joined Fox in 2009, has a history of making misogynistic and racist comments.

"First of all, this is a woman who called you a white supremacist and the irony there is that if she wasn't a member of Congress, she would be a member of the KKK", she said.

Carlson said there are "serious reasons to wonder about her judgment and her competence".

Goldstein recalled Omar's anti-Semitic tweets, including her insinuation that Jews have dual loyalty.

Carlson went on to defend himself, saying his show "more than any other show on television", has "taken an aggressive position in favor of color-blind equality against racism, particularly the casual racism of the modern left". "Because we work at Fox News, and they've got our back, and we're thankful for that".

On Tuesday, Carlson said US immigration laws are "dangerous" because they let people like Omar, who he said "hates" America, into the country.

Arsenal appoint former midfielder club's technical director
But until a club comes up with any sort of realistic valuation of the player we don't have to do anything and we won't. Arsenal's Head of Football Raul Sanllehi said of the appointment: "We're very excited that Edu is joining the team".

Tucker Carlson has delivered some abhorrent, racist, unsafe rants over the years but his latest against Rep. Ilhan Omar might genuinely be his absolute worst ever. "How did Omar respond to the remarkable gift we gave her? It's unsafe", she said.

Carlson's Tuesday segment started with him describing Omar's journey from Somalia - "one of the world's poorest countries" - to America, "the world's richest country with all the bounty that that implies", and claiming she has "a lot to be grateful for".

Omar is part of a progressive group of freshmen representatives, which includes fellow congresswomen Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Rashida Tliab and Ayanna Pressley.

Asked about the story, Omar admitted "she may have flubbed some facts", Jaffe and Mekhennet wrote. As we have noted many times, however, she is a bottomless fount of grievances and complaints. She arrived as a child in a land famous for its high-minded ideals, and, as she grew up, was forced to square them with its at times brutal, racist, and unjust realities. He also accused Omar of having "undisguised contempt for the United States and for its people". "And what she does is she hides behind the fact No. 1 that she is a Muslim, and a woman as though that insulates her from criticism and anybody who criticizes her or what she says is automatically Islamophobic or racist". We want to reassure you that it is not going to happen. Why?

"If she wasn't a member of Congress, she would be a member of the KKK", Goldstein claimed. "She was trying to make the point that Republicans didn't care for the troops. She is using politics as an affirmative defense to bigoted discrimination against American Jews". "They are direct attacks on American Jews, a minority community in the United States. Some of the very people we try hardest to help have come to hate us passionately".
