Democratic Representatives Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib smirked Wednesday evening as one supporter yelled an anti-Semitic trope during a town hall event in Washington, DC; renewing fierce criticism of Omar’s string of anti-Semitic posts on social media.

Tlaib was speaking with audience members at the “Progressive Issues Town Hall” when she said, “I want to thank so many of our Jewish allies out there… They continue to stand up with us and tell the truth.”

After Tlaib’s comments an unidentified audience member screamed “It IS about the Benjamins” towards the stage; referencing Omar’s anti-Semitic accusation that American lawmakers support Israel because of large campaign donations.
