Recently sworn-in Rep. Ilhan Omar “unequivocally apologized” for her anti-Semitic tirade on social media Monday; saying she’s “grateful for Jewish allies and colleagues who are educating me on the painful history of anti-Semitic tropes.”
“We have to always be willing to step back and think through criticism, just as I expect people to hear me when others attack me for my identity. That is why I unequivocally apologize,” she posted.
