Rep. Roebert and Rep. Omar have rancorous callA phone call between Republican U.S. Representative Lauren Boebert and Democratic counterpart Ilhan Omar ended in rancor on Monday after Boebert refused to publicly apologize for suggesting she viewed her colleague as a threat, the two said.

Boebert, a first-term lawmaker who has courted controversy by vowing to ignore Washington gun laws and criticizing fellow Republicans, placed the call after a video emerged showing her calling Omar, who is Muslim, a member of a "jihad squad."

Boebert in a statement Friday apologized "to anyone in the Muslim community I offended with my comment."

But on Monday, Boebert showed no sign of remorse, posting a video that described her call with Omar and doubled down on her comments.
