WATCH: Ilhan Omar says to Raise Hell, Make People Uncomfortable
As I’ve mentioned a few times now, Representative Ilhan Omar made some comments about the 9/11 attacks that left nearly 3,000 innocent people dead that have truly outraged the nation.
“Some people did something” is how she described one of the most tragic moments in American history.

President Trump recently responded with this Tweet:
WE WILL NEVER FORGET! pic.twitter.com/VxrGFRFeJM

It’s fair to say that Trump, as a New Yorker himself, will absolutely never forget the gravity of that day. I don’t see the problem with this tweet. He’s pointing out that Ilhan Omar is diminishing the importance of the heinous attack, and rightly so.
Pelosi has a lot to say about it.
According to Daily Caller:
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi went after President Donald Trump Saturday morning for his Twitter response to Minnesota Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar’s 9/11 remarks but did not mention Omar or her comments specifically.
“The memory of 9/11 is sacred ground, and any discussion of it must be done with reverence. The President shouldn’t use the painful images of 9/11 for a political attack,” Pelosi said in a statement.
She’s got to be kidding. Maybe she should have that same little chat with Ilhan.
I doubt she will.
Then it gets even more ridiculous:
Pelosi added, “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. It is wrong for the President, as Commander-in-Chief, to fan the flames to make anyone less safe.”
Nancy Freaking Pelosi is reminding us that leaders have to protect and defend the AMERICAN people.
Yup – the leader of the party who has basically put the entire world ABOVE the American people.
Let’s remind Nancy and the rest of the Democrats about this little comment next time they put illegal immigrants above Americans, shall we?
And while it’s awfully easy for her to rip on Trump, she still refuses to say anything about Omar’s initial comments:
Pelosi, however, has yet to make a full statement on Omar’s 9/11 remarks.
“I haven’t had the opportunity to speak with [Rep. Omar] to see the nature of her comment and, as is my custom with my colleagues, I call them in before I call them out so I’ll look forward to hearing from her,” Pelosi told reporters at a press conference Friday, The Washington Examiner reported.
What a spineless woman she is.
