After Fox New Channel host Tucker Carlson disparaged the freshman Democratic lawmaker in a recent segment of his show, U.S. Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., responded in a scathing tweet this week.

Carlson previously made the on-air claim that she “is living proof that the way we practice immigration has become dangerous to this country.”

Omar addressed the remarks in response to a tweet about the show.

“Not gonna lie, it’s kinda fun watching a racist fool like this weeping about my presence in Congress,” she wrote. “No lies will stamp out my love for this country or my resolve to make our union more perfect.”
