Lauren Boebert escalated to a full boil Monday after the Colorado Republican went after Rep. Ilhan Omar in a video following a tense phone call between the two.” Boebert originally called Omar to clarify Islamophobic remarks she had made days earlier about her, but after Boebert refused to issue a public apology, Omar ended the call.
