Last week, Rep. Ilhan Omar (anti-American Muslim-MN) raised the ire of millions of Americans when she referred to the 9/11 Islamic terrorist attack on America just something that some people did.
Her obvious downplay of the role of the Islamic terrorists was more than incentive to many, especially to those who lost loved ones during and after the attack.
President Trump tweeted about Omar’s dissing of 9/11 by posting a video of the Twin Towers going down and saying that we will never forget.
Not only does House Squeaker Nancy Pelosi continue to have Omar serve on the House Committee on Foreign Affairs, knowing her hatred for Israel, but Pelosi lashed back at Trump for his tweet and demanded that Trump remove the video.
The Hill – Trump blasts Pelosi for defending ‘out of control’ Omar – President Trump on Monday chastised Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) for defending Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.), saying the Minnesota Democrat is “out of control.”
“Before Nancy, who has lost all control of Congress and is getting nothing done, decides to defend her leader, Rep. Omar, she should look at the anti-Semitic, anti-Israel and ungrateful U.S. HATE statements Omar has made,” Trump tweeted.
“She is out of control, except for her control of Nancy!” he added.
Trump’s remarks come amid growing concerns for Omar’s personal safety. He has ratcheted up his criticisms of the freshman lawmaker in recent days, even as Democrats warn that the president’s rhetoric could endanger Omar, who is one of the first two Muslim women elected to Congress…
It has been reported that Pelosi did chastise Omar about the insensitivity of her 9/11 statement.
However, compare Pelosi’s reaction of Omar’s nationally disgraceful comment to the statement President Trump made where he suggested that the violence in Charlottesville was partially due to leftist extremists.
Pelosi and every other
Democrat went ballistic after Trump spoke the truth, but then when Omar greatly offends many Americans, all she reportedly gets from Pelosi is a mere slap on the hand, reportedly, but yet Omar remains on the same House committee.
