Roy Moore Fires Back At Omar For Calling Him A Child Molester: “She Should Go Back To Somalia!”


Ilhan Omar is having a tough week.

She’s been accused of having an affair with her strategist Democrat Tim Mynett by his soon-to-be-ex wife. 

Yet another allegation of violating campaign finance law is heading her way. 

A resolution has been introduced into the House by the Alabama GOP to get Omar expelled from Congress. 

And, Omar doesn’t seem to be handling it well.

After Alabama Judge Roy Moore, who is a candidate for the Senate, voiced his support for the resolution to oust Omar from Congress, Ilhan Omar lashed out at Moore, calling him a child molester!

Roy Moore wasn't going to take it.

Here's how he responded to Ilhan Omar's accusation:

The Hill has more details on the whole situation:

Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore (R) on Wednesday said Rep. Ilhan Omar should go back to Somalia after the Minnesota Democrat called him a child molester while criticizing the Alabama GOP for seeking her expulsion from Congress. 

"I fully support the resolution of the Ala Rep Party asking Congress to expel Omar under Article 1 Section 5 of the US Constitution," Moore said in a statement in which he called the first-term congresswoman an "avowed muslim" and a "sworn enemy of Israel."

"President Trump was right, she should go back to Somalia from whence she came," Moore added, referencing a "send her back" chant that a North Carolina rally crowd last month broke into as Trump targeted Omar, a Somali refugee who came to the U.S. with her family as a child. 

The "send her back" chant at a Trump rally came the same week the president told Omar and a group of minority congresswoman to "go back" to where they came from. The president has since said that he did not agree with chant. 

The statement from Moore came after Omar ripped the effort by Alabama's state GOP to get Congress to expel her.

She said the GOP should be more concerned with its support of Moore in a 2017 special election Senate race. 

"Sorry, [Alabama GOP], but this is a representative democracy," Omar tweeted. "I was elected with 78% of the vote by the people of Minnesota's 5th District, not the Alabama Republican Party."

"If you want to clean up politics, maybe don’t nominate an accused child molester as your Senate candidate," she added, an apparent reference to the allegations that Moore pursued sexual and romantic relationships with teenage girls in the 1970s, when he was in his 30s. Moore has adamantly denied the allegations.

Alabama GOP Senate candidate Roy Moore responded Wednesday to a dig from Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., by echoing President Donald Trump's rhetoric. Omar should “go back to Somalia from whence she came,” Moore wrote on Twitter.

Moore’s response comes after Omar tweeted at the Alabama Republican Party which has begun an effort to convince the state's congressional delegation to seek Omar's expulsion from the House of Representatives. The state party recently passed a resolution that cited a number of comments Omar made about Israel that have sparked controversy over the last several months.

The resolution calling for the launch of expulsion proceedings got the stamp of approval from the Alabama GOP over the weekend, according to AL.com.

"Rep. Omar has engaged in rhetoric that explicitly runs counter to American values and patriotism," the resolution reads. "The Alabama Republican Party urges its elected congressional delegation to proceed with the expulsion process in accordance to Article 1, Section 5 of the U.S. Constitution to expel Rep. Ilhan Omar from the United States House of Representatives."

Omar responded to the effort on Twitter Tuesday by boasting about the support she has in her district in Minnesota and calling out Moore, 72, a controversial former judge who lost a 2017 Senate race after being accused of decades-old sexual misconduct involving teenage girls when he was in his 30s. Moore has denied the allegations. He lost to Democrat Doug Jones.

Omar told the Alabama GOP; "If you want to clean up politics, maybe don’t nominate an accused child molester as your Senate candidate?"

Moore responded Wednesday, posting four tweets about Omar and the state GOP's resolution. "I fully support the resolution of the Ala Rep Party asking Congress to expel Omar under Article 1 Section 5 of the US Constitution," Moore wrote in one tweet. In another tweet, he called the progressive congresswoman a "sworn enemy of Israel" and an "avowed Muslim."
