McCain and Meyers were discussing tweets from Omar that some perceived as anti-Semitic. She has since apologized.
“You were very vocal about some of the tweets,” Meyers said.
“People were upset, thought it was anti-Semitic language, she has since unequivocally apologized for them. And then after that there was this tragic synagogue shooting in California. And you once again on a Sunday news show brought up her tweets again in the context of that shooting. I just wondered, because I do think it’s fairly dangerous, and you brought it up after Congresswoman Omar also had some death threats against her. Do you think, she’s obviously now stated she needs to be more careful with her language. Don’t you think other people who talk about her need to be a little more thoughtful as well? Or do you stand by those comments of tying her rhetoric to the synagogue shooting?”
“I don’t think I tied her to it in particular,” McCain replied. “I think that I’m calling out what I see as anti-Semitic language.”
“But even after, you thought that even after she apologized for it? I do want to establish the timeline,” Meyers said.
“I think Democrats are hedging on this,” McCain said. “I think it’s very dangerous.”
McCain later said: “I stand by every single thing I said and if that makes me unpopular in this room or in front of you, so be it.”
