As Twitchy readers know, Rep. Ilhan Omar didn’t have such a great start to her week, what with being called out for her anti-Semitic comments, tweets, and behavior. Even Democrats like Nancy Pelosi told her to knock it off, although there were no real repercussions for her comments.
Eventually, Omar did apologize … sorta, and by sorta we mean not really but the words, ‘I unequivocally apologize’ were included.

Thinking she probably should have stopped AFTER the word, ‘apologize’.
Anyone else finding this apology a little on the non-apologetic side?
Well, besides Brit Hume.
Because you see, her comment was really not about Jews or Israel or even AIPAC. It was about lobbying. I wonder if she’s aware that lobbying is protected by the First Amendment. https://t.co/PxbsuFuV9w

Quiet you with all your First Amendment facts! Talk about Constitutional Privilege!
And we’re willing to bet she is NOT in the least bit aware of this fact.
I am sure she will attack planned parenthood next.

Sure she will.
That was not an apology.

It really wasn’t.
I’m sorry BUT! (How I hate these kind of apologies!)

Democrats usually have a big ol’ BUT in the middle of their apologies.
And in other places.
