OCASIO-CORTEZ DEFENDS OMAR, CLAIMS SHE’S DONE MORE FOR 9/11 VICTIMS THAN DAN CRENSHAW
Democratic New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez defended fellow freshman Democratic Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar on Thursday, saying that Omar had done more for 9/11 victims than the GOP. Ocasio-Cortez then turned the attack on one of Omar’s critics specifically: Republican Texas Rep. Dan Crenshaw.
Omar drew the ire of many Americans when she referenced the 9/11 terror attacks by saying, “Some people did something” while claiming that the attacks had been used to justify the mistreatment of Muslims.

Crenshaw, who served as a U.S. Navy SEAL after 9/11, was one of many to call out Omar on Twitter.
The New York Post responded to Omar’s comments by putting a photo of the burning Twin Towers on the cover of Thursday’s edition with the headline, “Here’s Your ‘Something.’”View image on Twitter
Ocasio-Cortez first defended Omar by attacking the New York Post and blaming the GOP.
I’m not going to quote the NY Post’s horrifying, hateful cover.
Here’s 1 fact: @IlhanMN is a cosponsor of the 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund. She‘s done more for 9/11 families than the GOP who won’t even support healthcare for 1st responders- yet are happy to weaponize her faith.91.6K9:55 AM – Apr 11, 2019Twitter Ads info and privacy29.6K people are talking about this
And then she turned the attack on Crenshaw.
You refuse to cosponsor the 9/11 Victim’s Compensation Fund, yet have the audacity to drum resentment towards Ilhan w/completely out-of-context quotes.
In 2018, right-wing extremists were behind almost ALL US domestic terrorist killings. Why don’t you go do something about that?
