Jewish comedian and actor Sarah Silverman criticized “The Squad” of left-wing Democratic lawmakers over recent attempts to block U.S. funding for Israel’s Iron Dome air-defense system.
Referring to Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) and Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.), Silverman said on a new episode of her podcast, “I wanna love them; I really do. Their domestic policies are completely aligned with mine, and I think they are so cool and kickass, but this is really scary.”
Tlaib and Omar voted against a bill that was passed last week by the U.S. House of Representatives to provide $1 billion in additional funds for Iron Dome interceptors, with Ocasio-Cortez voting “present.”
She called Iron Dome the “one thing that protects people from missiles in a place where missiles are constantly flying at you.”
Of the congresswomen, she said: “None of them talk about Hamas. No one in ‘The Squad’ is bringing up Hamas. It’s so bizarre. Why do none of them even mention Hamas?”
