CNN Panel on Rep. Ilhan Omar: Republicans Took ‘Several Decades’ to Condemn Steve King

‘They took a long time to condemn Steve King’


SCHOR: “And this isn’t the first time that Congresswoman Omar has responded to the criticism of the way she talks about the Israeli government by saying, ‘Hey, I’m willing to learn, I’m open to it.’ So to Carl’s point, there may be some formalized counseling moment, but it’s clear that Republicans, even though let’s just also be clear, they took a long time to condemn Steve King the way that they did. Everybody knew for years.”
HULSE: “Several decades.”
SCHOR: “Several decades, yeah. It’s clear Republicans are going to keep harping on this.”
