AOC Slams McCarthy For ‘Accepting’ Boebert’s Anti-Muslim Remarks Aimed At Omar

"So many women will have their hijabs ripped off on public transit because of the example that leader McCarthy and the Republican caucus is setting right now." Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) slammed House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) for "accepting" Rep. Lauren Boebert's (R-CO) "incredibly violent" and anti-Muslim remarks about Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MO), calling for the removal of Boebert from her committee assignments. "Representative Boebert, whatever her intentions may be for her racism and flagrant bigotry, needs to experience a consequence for her actions," Ocasio-Cortez said. "Because when we inconsistently apply consequences to bigotry, we invite more people to test these boundaries."
