We have a sitting member of Congress calling for a boycott of our press folks.
Ilhan Omar didn’t like what Tucker Carlson had say about her, so she is now calling for a boycott of Fox News’ advertisers.
Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) endorsed a campaign to pressure advertisers to drop Fox News after a scathing criticism from Tucker Carlson that she called racist.
"Fox News is now giving a nightly platform to white supremacist rhetoric. It's dangerous," Omar tweeted.
"Advertisers should not be underwriting hate speech," she concluded.
She reposted a video of the commentary from Carlson, and a tweet that called it a "racist attack," while calling on advertisers to drop the cable news network and asking Twitter users to pressure them.
"Omar isn't disappointed in America, she's enraged by it," said Carlson in his commentary from his show.
"Virtually every public statement she makes accuses Americans of bigotry and racism. This is an immoral country she says, she has undisguised contempt for the United States and for its people," he adds.
"That should worry you and not just because Omar is a sitting member of Congress.
