Ari Fleischer: Omar Mess Is Bad News for Democrats' 2020 Platform

While the Democrats are fracturing over what to do with Rep. Ilhan Omar's (D-MN) and her anti-Israel remarks, they may want to consider how today's fight will spill into the 2020 presidential election. Former White House Press Secretary Ari Fleischer noted that today's disunity is bad enough, but just wait until the party conventions roll around.

He's talking about the contentious vote at the 2012 Democratic National Convention when Gov. Ted Strickland (OH) tried to add the pro-God and pro-Israel amendments back in to the platform. When a large number of attendees shouted "no!," the governor, like many of us, was visibly shocked.

He suggested that the media start asking the candidates the right questions.

The House is expected to introduce an anti-hatred resolution on Thursday as a first step to regaining some integrity. While the vote was initially prompted by Omar's apparent anti-Semitism, it was then expanded to include condemnations of anti-Muslim bias, white supremacism, and other forms of hate. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was adamant that Omar is not to be named in the resolution and she suggested that the freshman lawmaker may not have known that what she was saying was so offensive.
