U.S. congresswoman Ilhan Omar has been under constant attack by Republicans and some Democrats for her strong stance against the U.S.-Israeli political lobby

U.S Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) has responded to Meghan McCain's recent attack in which the conservative commentator criticized the congresswoman's rhetoric.

On Sunday McCain told her fellow castmates on ABC's "The View" that Rep. Omar's previous comments needed to be discussed in light of the recent shooting at the Chabad of Poway synagogue. 

“I do think when we are having conversations about anti-Semitism we should be looking at the most extreme on both sides, and I would bring up Congresswoman Ilhan Omar and some of her comments that got so much attention,” McCain said Sunday, bringing up Omar unprompted.

The conservative commentator added that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) “wasn’t hard enough in her response to [Omar] trafficking in anti-Semitic language.”

Not one to shy away from these attacks, Rep. Omar responded "bless her heart" in a post linking the clip of McCain. 

Both McCain and Omar have feuded in the past, most recently over what Omar classified as McCain's "faux outrage" over her comments that were perceived as anti-Semitic.
