Ilhan Omar brands Tucker Carlson a ‘racist fool’ in scathing tweet

Ilhan Omar brands Tucker Carlson a ‘racist fool’ in scathing tweet

Democratic Congresswoman Ilhan Omar called Fox News host Tucker Carlson a “racist fool” for saying she is “living proof” that US immigration policy is a danger to the country.

Omar’s scathing tweet came in response to Tuesday’s edition of ‘Tucker Carlson Tonight,’ in which the eponymous host said the congresswoman is “living proof that the way we practice immigration has become dangerous to this country.”

Some of the very people we try hardest to help have come to hate us passionately,” ranted Carslon. “She’s a living fire alarm, a warning to the rest of us that we better change our immigration system immediately, or else,” he concluded.

Carslon has repeatedly bashed Omar for being “ungrateful” for her criticism of the US, after she came to the country as a child refugee from Somalia in 1992.

Omar, one of the first two Muslim women to be elected to Congress, has also angered President Donald Trump, who accused her of being “out of control” after her comments about the stigma towards American Muslims since 9/11.
