Fox News anchor Bill Hemmer questioned why Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) does not “fly the flag” for the United States — decrying the remark she made comparing the United States to Israel, Hamas, Afghanistan, and the Taliban.
“We not only saw her trying to walk this back but the entire squad came to her defense, claiming that criticisms of her aren’t about policy or her positions on issues, but about Islamophobia and trying to silence women of color in the House,” Katie Pavlich said regarding Omar’s tweet.“You had [Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez] saying she wishes Democrats in the party would come to them and speak up these things privately before they condemned her publicly, but she is making these statements publicly.”
Pavlich went on to note that while she has the support of other progressive House members, many fellow Democrats, including Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), have condemned the remark.
“She is the Vice Chair of a subcommittee of the Foreign Affairs Committee, and yet she is equating the United States and Israel to U.S. government-sanctioned and designated terrorist organizations,” she continued. “It is not that she is a member of Congress without any responsibility, she is on the Foreign Affairs Committee and many people have taken off committee assignments for saying far less than she has, repeatedly, over and over again.”
Hemmer went on to read a tweet from Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), in which the lawmaker wrote that “freedom of speech doesn’t exist for a Muslim women in Congress.”
“She talked about the United States in comparison to the Taliban. Do you know what the Taliban did to women in Afghanistan? This is reprehensible,” he said of Omar, adding, “She was born in Somalia. She was raised in a refugee camp in Kenya — came to the United States, I think, at the age of nine. Can she ever fly the flag maybe just once for us?”
Pavlich echoed Hemmer’s plea for gratitude, condemning Omar’s “constant criticism of the country that saved her.”

Jadon Sancho won’t wear iconic No7 Man Utd shirt worn by Cantona and Ronaldo if transfer goes through due to Cavani
JADON SANCHO will reportedly be denied the iconic No7 shirt at Manchester United should he join from Borussia Dortmund.
The 21-year-old has been heavily linked with finally sealing a move to Old Trafford after the Red Devils failed to secure his services last year.2Manchester United are looking to sign Borussia Dortmund forward Jadon SanchoCredit: Reuters
Bundesliga outfit BVB are seeking a fee of £77million plus add-ons, with United optimistic a deal can be reached.
United have already had bids in excess of £67m for the winger turned down earlier in the window.
Should Sancho have linked up with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side in 2020, he would have been handed the iconic No7 jersey.
Club legends Eric Cantona, Cristiano Ronaldo, George Best, Bryan Robson and David Beckham have all achieved huge success with the number.
And there was hope that Sancho would be the next player to earn cult status with the No 7, however it was Edinson Cavani who was handed the famous jersey.
The Uruguay striker joined United on a free transfer on deadline day in October on an initial one-year deal, but he has since penned a new contract until 2022.
According to the Express, the 34-year-old is unlikely to hand over the number to Sancho, as his preferred No9 shirt is occupied by Anthony Martial.
It has been stated that Sancho will most likely be handed the No16 jersey, which is vacant following Marcos Rojo's move to Boca Juniors.

United icons Roy Keane and Michael Carrick previously wore that number, where they won 12 Premier League titles between them.
Sancho could be handed the No14 shirt, but that will only be available should Jesse Lingard be sold.
The forward, who has failed to feature in England's opening two Euro 2020 fixtures, is rocking the No17 while on international duty.
