What’s the matter Ilhan?
I guess she didn’t like what he was saying.
The Political Insider reports:
Ilhan Omar couldn’t handle hearing her Rashida Tlaib’s profane impeachment comments read on the House Floor during statements prior to Wednesday’s vote, repeatedly screaming “Stop it!”
Video shows House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy recalling how Tlaib, on day one in Congress and in front of her son, told a group of supporters “we’re going to impeach the motherf*****.”
Fox News reports several journalists were able to identify Omar (D-MN) as the one heard repeatedly shouting to McCarthy to “stop it.”
“Those are not my words,” McCarthy responded to the outburst.
Multiple sources claim Omar shouted for McCarthy to stop using Tlaib’s own words on the House floor three separate times.

And from Fox News:
In the case of Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., it was the repeated shouting of "Stop it!" when House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy recounted a profane remark about President Trump that fellow Squad member Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., had uttered back in January.
On Wednesday, several journalists -- including PBS Newshour senior reporter Daniel Bush, Daily Caller reporter Scott Morefield and others -- identified Omar, who was not seen on camera -- as the voice heard in the background as McCarthy addressed his fellow House members in the U.S. Capitol.
"What's the problem?" Morefield wrote, referring to Omar. "Truth hurt?"
In January -- soon after all four Squad members took office following their elections in November 2018, and months before the July 25 phone call between President Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky that kicked off the House impeachment inquiry this fall -- Tlaib said on camera at a Capitol Hill reception celebrating the new Congress that “We’re going to go in there and we’re going to impeach the motherf---er,” referring to Trump.
“Nothing was going to get in their way and certainly not the truth,” McCarthy began Wednesday. “Madam Speaker, Chairman Schiff said he had evidence, more than circumstantial, of collusion. That was false.
Rep. Kevin McCarthy's reference to a past remark by a fellow Squad member reportedly irritated Rep. Ilhan Omar on Wednesday.
“In January, where we all stood in this body. We stood up. We raised our hands. We swore that we’d uphold the Constitution,” McCarthy continued. “And, a few mere hours after that, Congresswoman Tlaib said she was going to impeach the mother-f-er. Those are not my words.”
Omar also commented on Twitter on Wednesday about the impeachment.
“The evidence is clear," she wrote online. "Trump extorted a foreign government in an effort to get reelected -- and obstructed Congress’ resulting investigation. He abused his oath of office. Today, I will act to restore balance to our democracy. I will vote to impeach Donald Trump.”
