Ilhan Omar can’t find a way to dig herself out of the mess that she created.
Omar’s attempts at deflection now border on the comical.
And Fox News humiliated Ilhan Omar with one simple question.
Ilhan Omar can’t stop apologizing for the terrorist group Hamas.
Hamas militants murdered 1,300 people on October 7.
Yet what Omar saw fit to condemn was the Israeli military response to bring the killers to justice.
Omar then took Hamas propaganda as the Gospel and spread the lie that Israel bombed a hospital in Gaza.
After Israel and U.S. intelligence provided evidence that the explosion at the hospital was the result of a misfired Palestinian rocket, Omar left up her false tweet faulting Israel for days before offering a half hearted apology.
Omar doubled down on her apologizing for the murderous terrorists in a press conference where she complained that the real aggressors were the Israelis defending themselves against a terrorist group that doesn’t believe their country has the right to exist.

Fox News correspondent Hillary Vaughn followed up with Omar in the halls of Congress and asked her if she supported the existence of Hamas.
“Congresswoman, you have called for a cease-fire — are you okay with Hamas terrorists continuing to exist?” Vaughn asked as Omar tried to flee.
Vaught also inquired if Omar believed the Israelis should lay down their arms and stop defending themselves against terrorist attacks.
“Do you think that Israel should just lay down their arms and not try to get the hostages out of Gaza?” Vaughn added. “How can Israel have a cease-fire with terrorists whose entire mission is to wipe out their existence?”
As Omar tried to flee into an elevator, she finally cracked and implored her staff to pay no mind to the “crazy lady.”
“Ignore this crazy lady, don’t worry about her,” Omar cried.
Vaughn didn’t ask Omar any difficult or “gotcha” questions.
But it was telling that Omar couldn’t bring herself to condemn the Hamas terrorist organization.
