Ocasio-Cortez Defends Omar's 9/11 Comments By Mocking War Hero Dan Crenshaw

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

Some of those previous emails also contained language critical of Ocasio-Cortez, a freshman NY representative with unabashedly left-leaning positions, though no others used the phrase "domestic terrorist" before yesterday's.

The former head of the DNC, Ed Rendell, said Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's, D-N.Y., decision to defend fellow freshman Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar, over her comments about the September 11 terror attacks, was "incomprehensible".

Democrat Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez slammed a Republican colleague as a hypocrite on Thursday while defending fellow freshman Representative Ilhan Omar.

"[Omar] won't back down to Trump's racism and hate, and neither will we", Sanders said, just hours after the president released a video on Twitter, ripping the Minnesota congresswoman over comments she made last month about 9/11.

No one was attacking Omar's 9/11 remarks because she was a Muslim, people were attacking her remarks because what she said trivialized the deadliest terrorist attack in world history.

Barr in the Friday letter said Ocasio-Cortez's remarks about Crenshaw went too far. The fund, which helps first responders and others harmed in the 9/11 attacks, is up for renewal.

Lewandowski has apparently agreed to serve as an unofficial adviser to Ruth Papazian, a medical journalist, and her campaign to unseat Ocasio-Cortez, New York magazine reported.

"N$3 ot only has Congressman Crenshaw "done something" to combat terrorism, he was wounded by an improvised explosive device while serving-causing him to lose his right eye", Barr said.

"For our colleagues to be silent is to be complicit in the outright, risky targeting of a member of Congress".

Yahoo News' Editor-In-Chief Dan Klaidman also asked Ocasio-Cortez whether she might one day run for higher office herself.

Nearly immediately, Ocasio-Cortez was excoriated for having the audacity to tell a man who lost his eye in service to the country to "go do something" about terrorism.
