Wednesday on CNN’s “The Lead,” host Jake Tapper made light of charges of antisemitism aimed at freshman Rep. IIhan Omar (D-MN) with a “rogue” control room routine that included footage of President Donald Trump.

Minnesota Democratic Congresswoman Ilhan Omar this week was accused by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and other top Democrats of spreading “anti-Semitic tropes.” Omar has apologized, but our own Manu Raju found her quite unwilling to discuss the controversy when he asked her about it today. DEMOCRATIC CONGRESSWOMAN ILHAN OMAR (MN): Are you serious? What is wrong with you? MANU RAJU: I’m asking you a question about your tweet. You had a tweet saying that President Trump trafficked in hate. OMAR: Yes. I tweeted, and there’s a response. You can run that. Have a nice day. TAPPER: Omar’s apology that she referred to there was not good enough for President Trump. PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP: Anti-Semitism has no place in the United States Congress.

Here is the  problem; whatever your position on border barriers or a border wall, the case the president lays out about El Paso is simply false. El Paso has never had ‘one of the highest
