Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) mocked "The View's" Meghan McCain after the daughter of late Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) called her out for continually using what many people perceive to be anti-Semitic language.

What are the details?

McCain, who appeared on Sunday's "This Week with George Stephanopoulos," said that it was important to call out dangerous speech whenever it rears its ugly head.

"When we're having conversations about anti-Semitism, we should be looking at the most extreme on both sides," she said while addressing the topic of Saturday's deadly synagogue attack in Poway, California. "I would bring up Congresswoman Ilhan Omar and some of her comments that got so much attention, and in my opinion Nancy Pelosi wasn't harsh enough on her for trafficking in anti-Semitic language, talking about, 'All about the Benjamins,' and how Jewish people had 'hypnotized' the world."

The attack left one person dead and three others injured, and occurred during a Passover service.

Just hours later, the freshman congresswoman tweeted her apparent thoughts on McCain's appearance on the ABC network show.

Tweeting a clip of McCain's interview, Omar wrote, "Oh, bless her heart!"

After the Saturday attack, Omar tweeted, "My heart is breaking after today's deadly shooting at Chabad Congregation in San Diego—on the last day of Passover and 6 months to the day after the Tree of Life shooting."

She added, "We as a nation must confront the terrifying rise of religious hate and violence. Love trumps hate."

McCain wasn't the only one to call out Omar after Saturday's synagogue attack. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) made a similar statement on Twitter.

He wrote, "The anti-Semitic Left — whether @IlhanMN repeated anti-Israel slurs or @nytimes apologizing for Hamas terrorists (eg, on 3/14/18) & running racist cartoons — is getting worse. And the House can't even pass an anti-Semitism resolution. Responsible dems need to say Enough is Enough."
