Where is Nancy Pelosi today?

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and other Democrats are pushing back this week after Colorado Representative Lauren Boebert made recent “Islamophobic comments.”

The statement comes after Boebert referenced Minnesota Representative Ilhan Omar as a”Jihad Squad” member on several occasions.

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy is also being criticized for his lack of response to Boebert’s “blatantly racist” comments.

In a joint statement, Democrats said, “Leader McCarthy and the entire House Republican Leadership’s repeated failure to condemn inflammatory and bigoted rhetoric from members of their conference is outrageous.”

Pelosi was among those who criticized Boebert after she posted another comment via social media on Thanksgiving that said the Capitol Police don’t need to fear Omar, as long as she isn’t carrying a “backpack.”

“Racism and bigotry of any form, including Islamophobia, must always be called out, confronted, and condemned in any place it is found,” Democrats said in their joint statement.

“This is particularly true in the halls of Congress, which are the very heart of our democracy.

“Congresswoman Boebert’s repeated, ongoing and targeted Islamophobic comments and actions against another Member of Congress, Congresswoman Ilhan Omar, are both deeply offensive and concerning.”
