Rep. Ilhan Omar called for advertisers to boycott Fox News host Tucker Carlson after he offered her as an example of why the U.S. immigration system is dangerous.

“Fox News is now giving a nightly platform to white supremacist rhetoric. It’s dangerous. Advertisers should not be underwriting hate speech,” the Minnesota Democrat said Wednesday on Twitter.

The article goes on to state the following:

Omar said in another tweet on Tuesday that Carlson was a “racist fool.”

“Oh lord! “immigrants-might-criticize-us reason” is the latest reason we need strict vetting of immigrants according to racist fool like Tucker. This is what happens when your xenophobia cuts off the air circulation in your brain 🤣,” Omar tweeted.

Omar also re-tweeted a series of other Twitter posts that supported her outrage against Carlson, including one who called for him to be FIRED.

Below are two video clips of Carlson’s remarks Tuesday evening, which outraged Omar, as he called out her anti-American statements.

Omar first responded to Carlson Tuesday night, tweeting, “Not gonna lie, it’s kinda fun watching a racist fool like this weeping about my presence in Congress 🤣🤣 No lies will stamp out my love for this country or my resolve to make our union more perfect. They will just have to get used to calling me Congresswoman!”
