Kentucky Rep.: AOC Must Apologize to Crenshaw Before Coal Mine Visit

Ocasio-Cortez rips ‘horrifying’ Republican hypocrisy on support for 9/11 survivors after Ilhan Omar controversy Kentucky Rep.: AOC Must Apologize to Crenshaw Before Coal Mine Visit

Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) retweeted a video Tuesday of Omar speaking at a Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) fundraising event last month.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez sat down for an interview with Yahoo News Skullduggery podcast on Sunday and provided her insights into Democratic hopefuls considering a run to unseat President Donald Trump in the 2020 general election.

"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", said Ocasio-Cortez.

Crenshaw tweeted first about Omar's remarks on Tuesday, sharing a tweet that falsely claimed she had said that she "does not consider" 9/11 "a terrorist attack".

"In 2018, right-wing extremists were behind nearly ALL US domestic terrorist killings".

Crenshaw's tweet had chastised Omar's recent comments about the September 11th terrorist attacks that killed almost three thousand people.

The remarks created a firestorm among Republicans, with Crenshaw particularly outspoken.

"This puts me in danger every time", Ocasio-Cortez said, retweeting a screenshot of the email's subject line.

Ocasio-Cortez stuck her foot in her mouth defending virulent anti-Semite Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar who Crenshaw criticized for her outrageous comment about the terror attacks on 9/11.

"I am questioning how any American, let alone a United States Congresswoman, could downplay the 9/11 attacks", the Fox News host later tweeted. She then told Crenshaw, who lost an eye while fighting terrorism in Afghanistan, to go fight domestic terrorism. "We apologize to Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez for the use of unacceptable language in this email, and we do not approve of the message conveyed", they tweeted. "I will support whoever the Democratic nominee is", said Ocasio-Cortez. Now festival organisers hope to sprinkle some political stardust in the form of a glamorous 29-year-old congresswoman from NY.

"We know what happened", said Rendell to FOX Business' Maria Bartiromo on Friday.

She did applaud women who were gunning for the top White House position.
