Rep. Ilhan Omar was removed from the House Foreign Affairs Committee today, but not before Democrats could throw a hissy fit on the House floor.
During the verbal vote on the resolution to strip Omar of her committee assignment, Democrats, who opposed the measure, screamed in response.
Watch the moment below:
The wild moment was just one of many during the debate over Rep. Omar’s committee assignments, which included a wild performance from New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who waved her arms in the air excitedly as she accused Republicans of racism.
“One of the disgusting legacies after 9/11 has been the targeting and racism against Muslim Americans throughout the United States of America and this is an extension of that legacy,” Ocasio-Cortez shouted. “There is nothing consistent with the Republican Party’s continued attack except for the racism and incitement of violence against women of color in this body.”
AOC’s claim of racism is bizarre considering Speaker Kevin McCarthy kicked two white men, Representatives Eric Swalwell and Adam Schiff off of their committees as well.
Despite their protests, Democrats failed to block the resolution, which passed 218-211.
