CNN Contributor Calls Ilhan Omar A ‘Public Relations Agent For Hamas’

 CNN pundit Scott Jennings provoked the ire of several “Squad” members when he referred to Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) as a “public relations agent for Hamas” during a recent panel discussion.

Jennings joined a conversation hosted by CNN’s Abby Phillip — and he responded to Omar’s promise to vote to re-elect President Joe Biden in 2024 despite any misgivings she might have about his administration’s continued support for Israel in the war against the terror group Hamas.


Phillip began by asking Scott whether he was surprised to hear Omar say she would vote for Biden, adding, “And some of her colleagues, I’m pretty sure, wouldn’t say that today.”

“No, she’s a Democrat. They’re gonna vote for Biden. I’m not surprised about that,” Jennings replied. “I am surprised that, in the year of our Lord, 2024, there is a public relations agent for Hamas sitting in the United States Congress.”

Jennings went on to talk about the fact that Omar — and many others — had called for an immediate ceasefire but had made no mention that Hamas was still holding hostages who were taken from Israel during the October 7 terror attacks that left more than 1200 people dead.

“The reason Israel is not at that meeting is because Hamas will not provide a list of the living hostages. I didn’t hear a word – a word of concern for the hostages. Ceasefires – she said – don’t happen magically,” Jennings continued. “Well, you know there was a ceasefire in place on October the 6th. And who broke it on October the 7th? I cannot believe honestly what I heard out of that interview. What I want are for those hostages to come home. I want somebody – somebody out there to show just a little bit of remorse that Hamas broke the ceasefire, raped, and murdered horrifically women all kinds of people. That – that’s it. How about a little bit of concern for those folks? That’s what I’m looking for.”

Members of the far-left “Squad” were quick to run defense for Omar, however, lashing out at Jennings and CNN for allowing his comments to go unchallenged.


“Scott Jennings’ comments are reminiscent of the anti-Muslim bigotry we saw in the George Bush post-9/11 era. It is disgusting and must not be normalized. CNN should denounce this hateful, dangerous and blatant Islamophobia immediately,” Rep. Cori Bush (D-MO) complained.

“How on earth is this kind of blatant Islamophobia so casually accepted without pushback? This is shocking,” Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) added.

Several others also responded as if speaking from the same script, including Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) and Rep. Jamaal Bowman (D-NY).
