Ilhan Omar says she was unaware of ‘tropes about Jews and money’

Rep. Ilhan Omar is taking heat again — this time over Sen. for saying he has “tropes about Jews and money.” “Give me a break,” announced Ted Cruz, leaving an aide behind.

Omar (D-Minn.), who has been removed from the House Foreign Affairs Committee by House Speaker Kevin McCarthy, was trying to defend himself in an interview with CNN on Sunday against allegations that he had made anti-Semitic comments in the past.

“I certainly didn’t know or realize that the word ‘hypnotized’ was a trope. I wasn’t aware of the fact that there were tropes about Jews and money. That was the most enlightening part of this journey,” Omar said on CNN’s “State of the Union.”

“I said these things on purpose in case people read my comments and it sounds like I have something against the Jewish community,” he continued.

Omar, the first Somali-American and one of the first Muslims elected to Congress, once compared the Jewish state to terrorist organizations such as Hamas and the Taliban and said the relationship between Israel and the United States was “about Benjamins.”
