Carlson's comments came as part of a discussion of a 2017 tweet from Omar highlighting the number of Somalis killed by U.S. forces in a 1993 battle in Mogadishu. The fight was dramatized in the film "Black Hawk Down."
“Here’s someone who was brought to the United States at public defense simply because we’re a kind country that accepts a lot of refugees,” Carlson said as he interviewed Kyle Lame, a retired sergeant major who fought in Mogadishu.
“And rather than being grateful for that, she’s spent the rest of her life attacking this country. Why?”
The remarks are just the latest criticisms from Carlson toward Omar, who has become a huge target for the right. Omar is one of the first two Muslim women elected to Congress, and has stirred controversy with comments about Israel.
