“I wanted to let her know directly that I had reflected on my previous remarks. As a strong Christian woman who values faith deeply, I never want anything I saw to offend someone’s religion. So I told her that.
“She said that she still wanted a public apology because what I had done wasn’t good enough. So I reiterated to her what I had just said.
“She kept asking for a public apology so I told Ilhan Omar that she should make a public apology to the American people for her anti-American, anti-Semitic, anti-police rhetoric.
“And then Rep. Omar hung up on me. Rejecting an apology and hanging up on someone is part of cancel culture 101 and a pillar of the Democrat Party.
“Make no mistake, I will continue to fearlessly put America first, never sympathizing with terrorists.
“Unfortunately, Ilhan can’t say the same thing. And our country is worse off for it.” – Lauren Boebert, in an Instagram video posted today.

So Lauren Boebert called Ilhan Omar and asked *Omar* to publicly apologize to the American people.
So, surprise!, the whole thing was a setup. This was always the plan. To drag this out and play to the MAGA base. Wonder what Kevin McCarthy has to say now.https://t.co/g67cQ5QXrZ
