As Twitchy told you yesterday, Jeanine Pirro came under heavy fire for suggesting that Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar can’t be loyal to our country or constitution because she wears a hijab. Hufsa Kamal, a producer for Fox News’ “Special Report,” was among those who called Pirro out for her reprehensible comments:
@JudgeJeanine can you stop spreading this false narrative that somehow Muslims hate America or women who wear a hijab aren’t American enough? You have Muslims working at the same network you do, including myself. K thx. https://t.co/ZfKhRhlvM3

Omar thanked Kamal and Fox News for denouncing Pirro’s bigotry — and then proceeded to explain why said bigotry is wrong:

Serious question: Does Ilhan Omar own a mirror?

Well said. Now look in mirror and say it again.

“No one’s commitment to our constitution should be questioned because of their faith.” Unless that faith happens to be Judaism, right?
Jewish people included?

What if they are jewish and from Israel? Just curious. 🤔

Oh, in that case, it’s all about the Benjamins. They don’t pledge their allegiance to Israel for free, you know.
Also, no one’s commitment to our Constitution should be questioned because of their support to Israel.

Agreed. Now will you retract your comments on dual loyalty?

Of course she won’t. She’ll just have a good laugh and do it again.
Oh god this is ironic
