"Here's 1 fact: @IlhanMN is a cosponsor of the 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund", Ocasio-Cortez tweeted.
When asked if there was a Democratic candidate she has picked to throw her suddenly sizable support behind, Ocasio-Cortez claimed "I truly do not have one yet". "We do talk with students and offer numerous opportunities to explore issues of dialogue and professionalism in curricula and experiential learning opportunities".
Crenshaw was aghast over Omar's characterization of the brutal terror attacks as merely "some people did something".
After the Texas Republican replied that it is "unbelievable" that a member of Congress would describe "terrorists who killed thousands of Americans" in such a manner, Omar called on leaders of both parties to join her in "condemning" Crenshaw's "dangerous incitement".
Kilmeade reacted to the controversy that followed by saying he had not meant to question whether Rep. Omar was an American. Say she didn't mean it ... diffuse the situation, but don't double down, alright?
The group responded to a tweet by Ocasio-Cortez, in which the legislator questioned her safety following the inflammatory rhetoric.
"In 2018, right-wing extremists were behind nearly ALL US domestic terrorist killings. Why don't you go do something about that?" she demanded.
Ocasio-Cortez is coming under fire from Republicans for asking via Twitter why Crenshaw, a veteran of the Afghanistan war, doesn't "do something" about domestic terrorists. "I haven't endorsed anybody, but I'm very supportive of Bernie", Ocasio-Cortez said, adding, "I also think what Elizabeth Warren has been bringing to the table is ... truly remarkable, truly remarkable and transformational". "I think about it every once in a while, but ... this is pretty hard already".
"I am questioning how any American, let alone a United States Congresswoman, could downplay the 9/11 attacks", the Fox News host later tweeted.
The fierce realist wants people to consider the long-term considerations when making their selection, to go with someone who has a "track record". "So to say that kind of attack, that is the height of partisanship and I'm really disappointed in them saying that".
