House Democrats abruptly abandoned their plans to condemn Rep. Ilhan Omar’s anti-Israei rhetoric Wednesday; bizarrely blaming President Trump for the “rise in hate that has taken place” in the United States.

“We are committed to decisively condemning anti-Semitism, racism, white supremacy, Islamophobia, homophobia, and the rise in hate that has taken place in this country – perhaps coincidentally – over the last two years, since January of 2017,” said Rep. Hakeem Jeffries, chairman of the House Democratic Caucus.

“When has he ever said anything about the hateful remarks that continue to flow out of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue?” said Jeffries on Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

“When has he ever said anything about that?” he asked. “Let me just generally say: there’s not a rise of anti-Semitism in the House of Representatives. There’s a rise of anti-Semitic behavior and activity and violence in the country.”
