House Rep Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC) had a full meltdown over Ilhan Omar’s removal from the Foreign Affairs Committee. The decision was a pure party-line vote, with all Republicans voting for and all Democrats voting against. Republicans say Omar needed to be removed from the powerful committee due to her anti-semitic comments about Israel. In one such statement, Omar compared Israel and the United States to the terrorist organization Hamas. During her meltdown of a response, AOC said Omar’s removal was due to her being a woman of color and a Muslim. Fellow “squad” member Rashida Tlaib apparently began to cry at the tail end of her reaction.
