Conservative pastor E.W. Jackson began his radio program Wednesday with an outraged rant about a rule change that congressional Democrats are proposing that would reverse a headwear ban on the floor of the House of Representatives.
The change would take effect next year, when Democrats resume control of the House and welcome the most racially diverse and most female freshman class in U.S. history, which includes the first two Muslim women to serve in Congress. One of them, Minnesota Democrat Ilhan Omar, wears a headscarf.
“The floor of Congress is now going to look like an Islamic republic,” Jackson said on the show.
Friday morning, Omar shared a story from the Hill about Jackson’s remarks and offered a response of her own.
