After receiving significant pushback for making anti-Semitic comments prior to entering the U.S. Congres, and for her “all about the Benjamins” comment she made after arriving in Washington, D.C., Muslim-American Rep. Ilhan Omar (D) tweets are once again at the center of the anti-Semitism argument.
After business Leon Cooperman announced that he would be supporting billionaire Michael Bloomberg’s presidential candidacy in 2020, Rep. Omar tweeted “I wonder why?” and included the “thinking” emoji.
Because both Bloomberg and Cooperman are both Jewish, Omar’s detractors took issue with the tweet, calling it anti-Semitic.
Is this tweet anti-Jew? What other take away did Omar think people would have from her remark? Take a look.

President Trump has already called Omar “anti-Jewish” and “anti-Israel.”
