Guess who isn’t popular at the Clinton News Network (CNN): Ilhan Omar who has repeatedly accused Trump of being racist after posting anti-Semitic and racially insensitive remarks. Amazing enough, the liberal media giant didn’t offer Omar a pass on her wildly outlandish tweets.
CNN’s Manu Raju — who has arguably done the best job of tracking down Omar and asking her tough questions — approached her and asked her about President Donald Trump’s call for her to resign from Congress, The Daily Wire Reported.
“The president said that you should resign and the vice president said you should be held accountable for your views,” Raju said to Omar. “Can you respond to that?”
Omar ran behind a door to avoid the question, only responding: “No, thank you.”
Raju later tried to question Omar over her response to President Trump, when she tweeted: “Hi @realDonaldTrump, You have trafficked in hate your whole life—against Jews, Muslims, Indigenous, immigrants, black people and more. I learned from people impacted by my words. When will you?”
“Are you serious?” Omar asked. “What is wrong with you?”
“I’m asking you a question about your tweet…saying the president trafficked in hate,” Raju replied.
“Yes, I tweeted, and there’s a response,” Omar fired back. “You can run that. Have a nice day.”

Earlier in the day before the segment aired on CNN, Raju described his encounter with Omar in a series of tweets.
“Rep. Ilhan Omar in no mood to talk about her controversies this week,” Raju said. “First, she said: ‘No thank you’ when asked to comment on Trump saying she should resign. Second time I saw her, she yelled: ‘Are you serious?’ when I tried to question her.”
“Asked about her tweet this AM attacking Trump for trafficking in hate, she angrily said: “Yes I tweeted, and there’s a response,” Raju continued. “You can run that. Have a nice day.” And she walked into a meeting.”
“Before I even got my question out the second time I saw her, Ilhan Omar angrily said: ‘Are you serious? What’s wrong with you?'” Raju later added.
