    Well, the democrats might have called it that, you know full well that the republicans demanded she step down and leave congress. So they very much had to do something with this.

    Nope. The condemnation was 100% Dems. Repubs have taken no action.

    You wanna check on that there? Other than Trump stating she should leave her job and resign from congress? Calling her apology lame?

    House Minority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) said that Omar should be removed from the House Foreign Affairs Committee.

    But other Republicans and some anti-discrimination advocacy groups suggested that the apology might not be enough. McCarthy, in a statement, said the GOP would “take action this week to ensure the House speaks out against this hatred.”

    Zeldin on Monday commended Pelosi for speaking out but said more needed to be done to admonish Omar. “You can’t just take multiple apologies for multiple acts over the course of time and call it a day,” he said.

    So let's not make it out like Republicans have taken no action because that is not accurate.

    The Repub caucus in the House took no vote and issued no statement. The Dem caucus in the House voted, condemned and issued a statement.

    But that does not mean that the republicans did not respond and made statements about this issue.

    So what? There is no Repub resolution and no Repub collective call for action. Her problem is among Dems.
