Meghan McCain said Democrats “looking the other way” from comments made by Democratic Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar “only helps [President Donald] Trump’s reelection efforts in 2020.”

“@IlhanMN [Omar] retweeting trash like this is beneath a sitting member of Congress, as is her blatantly anti-Semitic rhetoric. The Democratic Party looking the other way only helps Trump’s re-election efforts in 2020…,” McCain tweeted Friday, along with a screenshot of a tweet Omar shared which attacked “The View” host’s late father Sen. John McCain. (RELATED: Joy Behar: Female Trump Voters Don’t Know The Difference Between A Predator And A Protector)

It also labeled the host’s recent concerns over Omar’s anti-Semitic comments “faux outrage.” (RELATED: Here Are The Three Democrats Who Voted Against Infanticide)

“Megan’s late father literally sang ‘bomb, bomb, bomb Iran’ and insisted on referring to his Vietnamese captors as ‘gooks.’ He also, lest we forget, gave the world Sarah Palin. So a little less faux outrage over a former refugee-turned-freshman-representative-pls,” the post attacking McCain read. (RELATED: Ilhan Omar Was Asked About Anti-Semitism, She Said Nothing About Jews Or Anti-Semitism)

It comes on the heels of a report Thursday about how the Fox News contributor broke down during the ABC daytime talk show when she said the freshman reps comments about Israel were “very scary.”

“I take the hate crimes rising in this country incredibly seriously, and I think what’s happening in Europe is really scary,” McCain shared. “And I’m sorry if I’m getting emotional. The idea that this is politicized — I’m really not — I was very nervous to talk about this on the show because I thought it would become politicized, and it really shouldn’t be. On both sides, it should be called out.”

“Just because I don’t technically have Jewish family that are blood-related to me doesn’t mean that I don’t take this as seriously and it is very dangerous — very dangerous — and I think we all collectively, as Americans on both sides … what Ilhan Omar is saying is very scary to me and a lot of people, and I don’t think you have to be Jewish to recognize that,” she concluded.
