After basically rendering House Dems’ resolution condemning anti-Semitism even more useless than it already was, the Congressional Black Caucus is now physically protecting Rep. Ilhan Omar from ever being accountable for her bigotry:
Leaving CBC meeting, members formed a circle around @IlhanMN and Marcia Fudge literally stuck her arm out to prevent reporters from asking her questions.
Then a few members hugged Omar, including Al Lawson.

The poor serial antisemite needs to be coddled, Yashar https://t.co/JdTBfGW2lz

She’s a Democrat, a liberal, and an anti-Semite. She’s met all three requirements for immunity.

Isn't this literally an attack on the Free Press? @Acosta will most likely be silent about this

Are some attacks on our democracy are more equal than others?
Why yes, we do find ourselves in a perfectly healthy political climate. https://t.co/9h3sUB7N0B
