Last month, Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar spoke before the Council on American-Islamic Relations and really stunk up the joint with her description of the September 11th, 2001 terrorist attacks, during which 2,977 people were murdered. According to her, it was a rather simple case of “some people did something.”
That’s kinda low-ball.
A whole lot of people thought so.
On Friday, Trump responded to Ilhan’s characterization for the first time with the following video:

Pretty powerful contrast.
Defenders of the anti-Semitic politician (here, here, and here) accused critics of inciting violence against her, and MSNBC’s Chris Hayes asserted the same of the President’s video, with nothing to back it up:
The President is actively and willfully endangering the life of a member of Congress.

What in the world??
Trump Jr. spotlighted the lunacy of Chris’s claim and added something which, in my view, is absolutely founded: The media, in its absurd accusation of Donald J. Trump, have certainly lathered up any provokable nincompoops who might be willing to do the candidate-then-president immense harm. After all, as we’ve been constantly told, he’s Hitler, Lucifer, and a KKK Grand Dragon lusting for murder (here, here, and here).
Brace for the impact:
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?

And Don Jr. lays it down once again.
For a grand showcase of MSNBC’s contribution to the most ridiculous the media has to offer, go here. It’s a real stunner.
