Rep. Ilhan Omar took a subtle jab at Sen. Rand Paul on Monday, sharing a tweet that referenced him being attacked on his lawn in November 2017.
In an interview with Breitbart, the Kentucky senator offered to pay for a plane ticket for the Minnesota representative to visit Somalia so that she would "appreciate America more."
Then actor Tom Arnold took to Twitter Monday morning to mock Paul.
"Imagine being Rand Paul's next door neighbor and having to deal with @RandPaul lying cowardly circular whiney bullcrap about lawn clippings," Arnold tweeted Monday morning. "No wonder he ripped his toupee off."
The tweet, which Omar subsequently retweeted, referenced one of Paul's neighbors, Rene Boucher, assaulting the senator while he was mowing his lawn in 2017. The incident resulted in Paul suffering several broken ribs.

An Omar spokesperson did not respond to a request for comment about Paul's interview. However, others, like Arnold and Democratic Rep. John Yarmuth of Kentucky, did condemn Paul.
"Continued efforts to paint Congresswoman Ilhan Omar as anything less than a proud American are offensive to say the least," Yarmuth, chairman of the House Budget Committee, previously told the Courier Journal. "It’s safe to say that Ilhan understands Somalia a lot better than Rand, and he’d be better suited just keeping quiet than making foolish and condescending remarks like this one."
Omar is one of four congresswomen — known as the "Squad" — who President Donald Trump told to “go back" to their ancestors' countries instead of criticizing U.S. policies.
A few days later, Trump held a campaign rally in North Carolina where the crowd chanted "send her back" when the president spoke of Omar, a Somalian refugee who came to the U.S. in 1992 as a child.
Trump condemned the chant when later asked by reporters, but he subsequently called those who attended the rally "patriots" in later comments.
Omar said in a recent op-ed to the New York Times that the "send her back" chant "will be a defining moment in American history."
“Throughout history, demagogues have used state power to target minority communities and political enemies, often culminating in state violence,” Omar said in the op-ed. "Today, we face that threat in our own country, where the president of the United States is using the influence of our highest office to mount racist attacks on communities across the land.”
