On Saturday, Donald Trump Jr. slammed MSNBC’s Chris Hayes “stupid logic” for his tweet that said, “The President is actively and willfully endangering the life of a member of Congress.”
Hayes was referring to President Trump tweeting out a video of Rep. Ilhan Omar’s speech that included images from 9/11. The President stated, “We will never forget!”

The sound byte from that Omar speech that has so infuriated American patriots is her statement that “Some people did something,” referring to the 9/11 attacks on our nation that killed almost 3000 people, while completely discounting the guilt of those who were responsible.
The President’s son jumped in Hayes’ wading pool and made a big splash when he tweeted right back at him: “Yea, he should really stop quoting her directly. By your stupid logic does all of your network’s insane leftist commentary and lies over the last 2 years “actively and willfully” endanger the life of the President? Asking for people who actually like America and Americans.”

Omar has never condemned the 2001 attacks. In fact, she has been openly supportive of known terror-related groups, has repeatedly been quoted criticizing Americans, and seems to take special pleasure in the act of inflaming tensions between Jews and Muslims.
The Democrat from Minnesota has even alienated members of her own, increasingly radical leftist party. Yet, there are many who are trying to mount a defense on her behalf.
House Leader Nancy Pelosi tweeted, “It is wrong for the President, as Commander-in-Chief, to fan the flames to make anyone less safe.”
“@IlhanMN’s life is in danger. For our colleagues to be silent is to be complicit in the outright, dangerous targeting of a member of Congress,” tweeted Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Her tweet included a background holocaust-related graphic.
AOC was in turn rebuffed by conservatives.
“Omar is being targeted for criticism, not for violence. The conflation of the two is a transparent attempt to silence criticism,” wrote columnist John Sexton.
“There’s something deeply disturbing about AOC making Holocaust references to defend an open and unrepentant anti-Semite who is merely being criticized,” said commentator Ben Shapiro.
As the President tweeted, “We Will Not Forget.” But we sometimes need to be reminded … the September 11, 2001 attacks were a series of four coordinated terrorist attacks by the Islamic terrorist group al-Qaeda against the U.S. The attacks killed 2,996 people, injured over 6,000 others, and caused at least $10 billion in infrastructure and property damage. Additional people died of 9/11-related cancer and respiratory diseases in the months and years following the attacks.
I don’t know, maybe I missed something, but what exactly did POTUS say that endangered her life that she didn’t already say and keeps doubling down on? pic.twitter.com/Rw1aDFNcHX

Ilhan Omar feigning bravery, acts like a new kindergartener, first class day but she alone, makes herself a target spouting a diminished, insulting inconsequential, demeaning version of the most vicious, inhumane, horrific act of terrorism ever perpertrated against America.
