Rep. Ilhan Omar slammed Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi this week after the top Democrat delivered a pro-Israel speech to the annual AIPAC conference; calling her comments “beneath any leader.”

“A condemnation for people that want to exercise their First Amendment rights is beneath any leader, and I hope that we find a better use of language when we are trying to speak as members of Congress that are sworn to protect the Constitution,” Omar told reporters Tuesday after Pelosi’s address.
