"Here’s the outrage: your party put a sham resolution on the floor designed to protect the anti-Semitic hate and bigotry of @IlhanMN," Cheney fired back at Ocasio-Cortez. 

The House voted overwhelmingly to support the resolution, which “encourages all public officials to confront the reality of anti-Semitism, Islamophobia, racism, and other forms of bigotry, as well as historical struggles against them, to ensure that the United States will live up to the transcendent principles of tolerance, religious freedom."

The resolution was sparked by comments from Rep.
