"Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) played a voicemail during a news conference Tuesday in which an unidentified man threatened her life and insulted her religion.

Omar, one of the first Muslim women elected to Congress, was speaking at the U.S. Capitol urging congressional leadership to take action against Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) for her recent anti-Muslim comments.

A visibly emotional Omar held a phone, which played the voicemail. She noted she received it after Boebert’s viral comment."
