Donald Trump Uses 9/11 To Attack Congresswoman Ilhan Omar
53% of white women’s president took to Twitter yesterday to attack Muslim Congresswoman Ilhan Omar with a video showing the World Trade Center attacks that happened on 9/11.
Trump was triggered into the bigoted tweet in response to the way Congresswoman Omar phrased a reference to the attack as “some people did something”.
“For far too long, we have lived with the discomfort of being a second-class citizen and, frankly, I’m tired of it, and every single Muslim in this country should be tired of it,” said the congresswoman.
“CAIR was founded after 9/11 because they recognized that some people did something and that all of us were starting to lose access to our civil liberties. So you can’t just say that today someone is looking at me strange and that I am trying to make myself look pleasant. You have to say that, ‘This person is looking at me strange. I am not comfortable with it, and I am going to talk to them and ask them why.’ Because that is the right you have.”
Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi immediately took the petulant Trump to task for being the dips#!t that he is according to The Washington Post:
“The memory of 9/11 is sacred ground, and any discussion of it must be done with reverence,” Pelosi said. “The President shouldn’t use the painful images of 9/11 for a political attack.
“As we visit our troops in Stuttgart to thank them and be briefed by them, we honor our first responsibility as leaders to protect and defend the American people,” the statement continued. “It is wrong for the President, as Commander-in-Chief, to fan the flames to make anyone less safe.”
