During an episode of “The Break Down with Brodkorb and Becky” podcast, Don Samuels, who lost the race for Democratic nomination in Minnesota last year to Representative Ilhan Omar insulted her aggressively.
Samuels criticized Representative Omar for what he perceives as a lack of responsiveness to her constituents. He expressed frustration at the government’s failure to address the concerns of those it serves and accused Omar of not being accessible to voters or adequately addressing their questions.
In a particularly contentious statement, Samuels asserted that Omar’s personal appearance played a role in her perceived shortcomings, stating, “You’re not cute enough, you don’t dress well enough, nothing about you is attractive enough to overcome that deficit.” These comments triggered a response from Omar on social media, where she denounced them as “sexist” and “beneath the dignity of any adult.” The exchange underscores the ongoing challenges within the Democratic Party and the broader political arena.
Representative Omar responded to Don Samiuels on X saying his remarks were “beneath the dignity of any adult” and sexist.
“This is beneath the dignity of any adult, let alone someone seeking public office,” Omar wrote on X, formerly known as Twitter. “It is reminiscent of the worst kinds of lies and misogyny that we are hearing from people like Donald Trump, who think they can say anything about women and get away with it.”
