Rep. Lauren Boebert Posts Video Explaining Phone Call With Rep. Ilhan Omar

Rep. Lauren Boebert has released a video detailing a heated phone call that she had with Rep. Ilhan Omar after she apologized for making a joke about the Minnesota congresswoman being a terrorist.

Boebert said that Omar hung up on her.

“I had reached out to her Friday and three days later I was able to connect with her on the phone because I wanted to let her know directly that I had reflected on my previous remarks. Now as a strong Christian woman who values faith deeply, I never want anything I say to offend someone’s religion. So I told her that. Even after I put out a public statement to that effect. She said that she still wanted a public apology, because what I had done wasn’t good enough,” Boebert said.

Boebert issued an apology to the Muslim community after a video surfaced showing her making the jokes at a speaking event.

The apology said, “I apologize to anyone in the Muslim community I offended with my comment about Rep. Omar. I have reached out to her office to speak with her directly. There are plenty of policy differences to focus on without this unnecessary distraction.”

“So I reiterated to her what I had just said. She kept asking for a public apology so I told Ilhan Omar that she should make a public apology to the American people for her anti-American, anti-Semitic, anti-police rhetoric. She continued to press, and I continued to press back. And then, Representative Omar hung up on me. Rejecting an apology and hanging up on someone is part of cancel culture 101 and a pillar of the Democrat party,” she continued.
