VIDEO: Underwood defends Omar to Jewish Illinoisan

May 7, 2019

A Jewish Illinoisan asked Lauren Underwood why she hasn’t condemned Ilhan Omar’s anti-Semitism and why she hasn’t called for her removal from the House Foreign Affairs Committee.

Underwood defended her anti-Semite donor (whose Jewish constituents don’t believe her fake apologies) and completely ignored the second part of the question.

NRCC Comment: “It is categorically horrifying that Lauren Underwood looked a Jewish Illinoisan in the eye and defended an anti-Semite.” -NRCC Spokeswoman Carly Atchison
