Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-NY), who has mostly made a name for himself this term by being an omnipresent thorn in Rep. Ilhan Omar’s (D-MN) side, took to Twitter once again to blast her for calling White House senior adviser Stephen Miller a “white supremacist.”
During my time in Congress before @IlhanOmar got here, I didn’t once witness another Member target Jewish people like this with the name calling & other personal attacks. In 2019 though, for @IlhanOmar, this is just called Monday. https://t.co/sgvsEvsj56

The two have slung religious intolerance-based insults at each other before when they came to verbal blows over the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and BDS.
That spat ended with a (short-lived) pseudo-reconciliation over the condemnation of the religious hatred both of them receive.
