Ocasio-Cortez defended Omar by making multiple false claims and by mocking Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX), who called out Omar for trivializing the 9/11 terror attacks.

In the same tweet, Ocasio-Cortez pins threats she has received on Republicans, asking, "GOP, what's it going to take to stop?"

"From fundraising emails labeling @AOC a domestic terrorist to the constant questioning of @IlhanMN's loyalty to and love of country, the right-wing is actively inciting violence against young progressive women of color in Congress", organizers with the Women's March posted on Twitter.

Kilmeade reacted to the controversy that followed by saying he had not meant to question whether Rep. Omar was an American.

Ocasio-Cortez has not apologized for the tweets and Crenshaw has not responded.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) swiftly came to her colleague Rep. Ilhan Omar's (D-MN) defense this week after she was accused of trivializing 9/11.

"So here you go, you guys are breaking news".

"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", posted Ocasio-Cortez. The fund, which helps first responders and others harmed in the 9/11 attacks, is up for renewal.

CP NewsAlert: Tiger Woods captures fifth Masters golf title
All those moments built to Sunday, when Woods was once again his old familiar dominating self. Woods now has 15 major titles overall, just three behind Jack Nicklaus' record of 18.

Last month, Ocasio-Cortez accepted Barr's invitation to "go underground" into a Kentucky coal mine so that he can show the author of the sweeping Green New Deal the "real life implications" of the climate change legislation that Republicans say would put coal miners out of business.

Crenshaw served five deployments overseas - while on his third combat tour, he was hit by an IED blast during a mission in Afghanistan that destroyed his right eye and badly injured his left eye.

"She parachuted into a congressional district she doesn't even represent and led the parade of grandstanding politicians to tank the deal", Papazian said.

It is not only that but as the present Democratic Party leader until an official candidate is chosen for the party, she is prodding her party members to sift through the presidential hopefuls, including Biden, in upcoming the debate process to commence in June.

It is widely known that the AOC, as Ocasio-Cortez is commonly referred to on social media platforms, has some 3.9 million followers on Twitter. Democrats should call out his bullshit.

The New York lawmaker also praised Sen.

As she continued to place her backing behind Biden, she brushed aside the recent accusations against the latter, stating that he appreciated why his inappropriate touching and feeling criticisms were an issue.
