[See NewsBusters for more.] During an attempt on Friday's CNN Tonight, host Don Lemon invited Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar on to attempt to debunk Republican comparisons between her and Georgia Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene. Lemon assisted Omar in these efforts by re-writing history of how House Democrats and Omar herself responded to her anti-Semitic remarks from 2019 as well as how Republicans have responded to Greene.

Lemon remembered that, "Back in 2019, you faced bipartisan backlash for comments deemed anti-Semitic including saying Israel has hypnotized the world." Lemon not only omits that Greene has also "faced bipartisan backlash," but that instead of booting Omar off her committees like they did with Greene, House Democrats merely passed a resolution that said all hate is bad.
