     Omar and Dems are looking very bad. President Trump on Friday released a video montage of the 9/11 attacks interwoven with controversial Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar’s comments that trivialized the acts of terror. The video includes Omar’s much-criticized remarks to the Council on American-Islamic Relations in March with quick cuts to video footage taken of the horrific terror attacks, including clips that show the collapse of the Twin Towers.

     “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,” the congresswoman (D-Minneapolis) said at the time. Her comments resurfaced when an Australian imam — who’s risen to social media fame — tweeted them out, leading to a firestorm of condemnation.

     Congressman Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) led the attack over his colleague’s remark. “First Member of Congress to ever describe terrorists who killed thousands of Americans on 9/11 as ‘some people who did something,’” he wrote on Twitter.
