GOP AR Gov Urges McCarthy To Condemn Boebert’s Islamophobic Attacks Against Omar

Wayne LaPierre, executive vice president of the National Rifle Association (NRA), speaks during a news conference in Washington.  The NRA, the powerful U.S. gun rights lobby, went on the offensive on Friday arguing that schools should have armed guards.

Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson (R) on Sunday called on House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) to publicly condemn Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) after she posted a video telling her supporters a false story about calling Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) “the jihad squad” to her face in a Capitol elevator earlier this week.
