Will Ilhan Omar come to Ben Shapiro’s defense now that Shapiro’s been targeted with death threats?

More from TMZ:

Law enforcement sources tell us, Shapiro, who frequently appears on cable news shows and has a hugely popular podcast, filed a police report with the LAPD. We’re told the threats were not just against Shapiro but his family as well.  He’s married with one daughter.

We’re told the Department got in touch with the FBI and created a joint task force to hunt down the culprit.

Our sources say a man was arrested Wednesday in Washington State for making the threats.

We’re told these threats were “extremely serious” … not just someone blowing off steam.

This is scary stuff. Thank goodness the man was found and Shapiro and his family are safe.

No kidding.

For what it’s worth, now that everything seems to be OK, Shapiro’s free to have a little laugh at his own expense:

Good to know.
