Liberals are known for having melt-downs over the slightest word or statement from President Trump. However, their latest source of outrage comes from the president’s decision to post a tweet in acknowledgment of the horrific 9/11 attack, as documented by The Blaze.
President Trump posted the aforementioned tweet after Rep. Ilhan Omar casually dismissed 9/11 as “some people did something.”
Reviewing President Trump’s Tweet
On Friday, the president posted a video which showed Omar saying “some people did something.” After her astounding dismissal came footage of the various carnage which ensued as a result of 9/11.

The president is not the only one to come out and note the perils and lives lost because of 9/11. Many Americans have taken issue with describing one of the most horrific terrorist attacks as “some people did something.” That “something” involved the loss of nearly 3,000 Americans. Next time Omar chooses to speak about a national tragedy on this level, choosing her words more carefully would be in her best interest.
The Leftist Meltdown over President Trump’s Tweet
Amazingly, liberals took issues not with Omar’s statements, but with President Trump’s acknowledgment of just how serious 9/11 actually was. Democrats also called upon Twitter to take down the president’s tweet and even went as far as to claim that Trump’s video served as “incitement” against Omar.

I can't believe I'm saying this but please report the President of the United States who has just tweeted out this incendiary video. It's another dog whistle for some unhinged person to hurt her, just like the bombs to the media and the shooter at the synagogue. DESPICABLE. https://t.co/oL0XyQyOWO

.@Jack please take this video by Trump off Twitter. Incitement doesn't always have to be words. You know how crazy his base can be with previous terror attacks that were committed them. @IlhanMN's life is worth more than some news worthy tweet. @TwitterSafety please do your job. https://t.co/ppg6HzR9wO

Every American should be disgusted by @realDonaldTrump’s continued incitement against Rep. @IlhanMN. American Muslims died on 9/11 too. Muslim first responders died running towards the destruction. In the backlash, Americans who were Muslim or perceived as Muslim were murdered. https://t.co/65SG8NQgwH

The implication that a video of Omar’s own words is “dog whistling” or “incitement” is ridiculous. In what world is acknowledging 9/11 and showing the subsequent carnage next to Omar’s “some people did something” sinister?
What’s truly despicable is the fact that Omar would use such cavalier language to refer to such a great tragedy. To make matters worse, Omar has not apologized; instead, she has chosen to double down on her statements.
Aside from her atrocious 9/11 remarks, Omar has also attracted backlash in the previous weeks for her anti-Semitic commentary; on multiple occasions, the congresswoman insinuated that Israel has bribed U.S. politicians for their support.
What do you think about the president’s tweet? How do you feel about 9/11 being described as “some people did something?” Let us know in the comments section down below!
