A feud between two congresswomen is boiling over. Ilhan Omar took a call from Lauren Boebert Monday but hung up when she didn’t get a direct apology.

Boebert admits she made an anti-Muslim comment on an elevator, telling an officer it was safe to ride with Omar since she wasn’t wearing a backpack. After the call, Omar said this is bigger than a hateful statement adding “it’s about a party that has mainstreamed bigotry and hatred.”
