Democratic Minnesota Representative Ilhan Omar can’t seem to keep her mouth shut, even if opening it means severely damaging her political career.
It was just recently that Omar came under fire after making anti-Semitic comments on Twitter.
On Monday, she hopped back on social media, slamming Jewish Trump White House adviser Stephen Miller and his influence on United States policy, labeling him a “white nationalist.”
Fox News reports, “Miller has been known for having a major influence over President Donald Trump’s immigration policy and was reportedly instrumental in the ousting of Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirsjen Nielsen.”
“Stephen Miller is a white nationalist,” Omar wrote in a tweet. “The fact that he still has influence on policy and political appointments is an outrage.”
It didn’t take long for Twitter users to jump down Omar’s throat when it was made clear that Miller was Jewish.

The Daily Caller reports:
Omar quoted a Splinter News article which, among other things, referred to Miller as a “white nationalist” and a “fascist” and suggested he’d like to appoint “Attila the Hun” to lead U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).
Republican New York Representative Lee Zeldin responding by tweeting out that he had never seen a Congressional member “target Jewish people like this.”
Donald Trump Jr. wrote in a tweet, “I see that the head of the Farrakhan Fan Club, @IlhanMN, took a short break from spewing her usual anti-semitic bigotry today to accuse a Jewish man of being a ‘white nationalist’ because she apparently has no shame.”

The President’s son wasn’t the only one condemning Omar for her ridiculous claim:
A yes, Judaism, the first sign of Nazi white supremacy. Very smart, @IlhanMN

You do know he's Jewish, right?
