Rep. Ilhan Omar Fires Back at Fox News: ‘I Am as American as Everyone Else’

‘They actually said that I might not be an American’
By Grabien Staff


OMAR: “Or when they call me a terrorist. Or when people say, you know, that because I— I’m a Muslim, I’m an immigrant, I’m a refugee, that I can’t have any loyalty to our country. I took an oath. I took an oath to uphold the Constitution. I am as American as everyone else is. And— and this kind of double standard really is quite, you know, offensive, and is very much embedded in a lot of our culture these days, where you will have people get— come after minorities for things that they say, they might have insigneuated, but no one goes after people like the folks on “Fox & friends,” that actually say those words. It’s not about insinuation. Right. They actually said that I might not be an American. My loyalties might not be to this country. But I get called out. They don’t. They get to keep their show.”
