During a segment on CNN yesterday, New York Times columnist Bari Weiss called out the mainstream media's one sided coverage of Congresswomen Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib's cancelled trip to Israel. Omar was barred from the country, Tlaib was offered a humanitarian visa to see her 90-year-old grandmother and turn it down. 

"One of the huge stories this week was that fact that Benjamin Netanyahu decided to bar the entry of two Democratic members of Congress Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib from entering Israel based on Trump's bullying him into that position. He reversed course. Now, that's a huge story, one I wrote a column about, but another huge story, one that isn't being covered by any mainstream paper or network is the fact that their trip to Israel, or as they called it 'Palestine,' was being sponsored by a group that literally published neo-Nazi blood libels and said that it supported female suicide bombers, hailing them as heroes. That's a scandal," Weiss said. "If someone like Steve King went to Norway or Sweden to meet with neo-Nazi groups, that would be front page news."

Meanwhile, President Trump isn't letting up on the two congresswomen and continues to point out they are the new face of the Democrat Party.
