Representative Ilhan Omar, who has been battling charges of anti-Semitism for weeks, drew swift and unqualified condemnation from fellow Democrats on Monday — including House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and the entire House leadership — after she insinuated on Twitter Sunday night that American support for Israel is fueled by money from a pro-Israel lobbying group that has Jewish backing.
I can’t fathom what possesses people who hold public office to make total idiots of themselves on Twitter. Why not go read a book, spend time with family, or just simply take a nap? What goal are they trying to achieve with all this infantile posturing on the most ridiculous social network in existence? Even the most profound person on the planet (which this lady clearly is not) will look like a dumbass on Twitter. Why work so hard to make yourself look more stupid?
