Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) said that Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) and herself have “beef with almost everyone” in Washington, D.C. during an appearance on Showtime’s “DESUS & MERO,” which aired on Thursday.

Hosts Desus and The Kid Mero interviewed Ocasio-Cortez and also sat down with Tlaib and Omar for a segment titled, “Meet the Housemates.”

During the segment, the group discussed Tlaib’s profane comments regarding President Trump, which sparked controversy earlier this year.

“I hit up Rashida. I sent her a text, and I was like, ‘Don’t worry about it. Who cares?'” Ocasio-Cortez said about the incident.

Tlaib, a native of Detroit, explained that where’s she from, calling someone a “mother fucker” is equivalent to saying, “that guy.”

“The double standard in that is [Trump] never gets in trouble for all the booboo words he uses,” Omar said.

Desus asked whether there are a lot of double standards in Washington D.C., which caused Ocasio-Cortez to roll her eyes.

“I think it’s one of those things where it’s like keeping it real with people is like this frowned upon thing, and so we’re just doing it anyway because it’s too much. It’s too much work not to do that,” Ocasio-Cortez explained.

“I mean, I think we have a beef with almost everyone here because there’s a lack of courage,” Omar added. “It seems like we’re all radical because we deeply care about the people who we represent, and we want to throw down for them.”

“Exactly,” Ocasio-Cortez said.
