Rep. Ilhan Omar’s claim about 9/11 being the day “some people did something” and other remarks sparked an avalanche of criticism, with President Trump responding by tweeting a video that angered the Left who were defending Omar. Brian Stelter did some CNN-style journalisming and discovered why the Minnesota congresswoman has been in the headlines for so long:

Alternate Stelter tweet:
Here's how the left-wing media machine turned a congresswoman saying something awful about September 11 into her being a victim https://t.co/4xc1D84ysS

It might just have something to do with what she said.
Does she bear any responsibility, or is it just the “right wing rage machine?” https://t.co/BUMk9KVwmP

This might be the most ironic tweet on this history of this website. It’s so funny watching them squirm after doing this for years. https://t.co/aiS00LkICe

And did Stelter forget where he works?
CNN spent two weeks falsely smearing a bunch of HS kids based on an edited video clip that was promoted in left-wing circles.

Self-awareness takes another holiday, but we’re used to that.
Conservatives didn’t make Omar disrespect 9/11. She did that all on her own. https://t.co/NhE68PanvS

There have been no controversy had she not opened her mouth and said what she said. She’s not the victim. https://t.co/KJezvWLEfN

Don’t tell that to Brian!
The problem is the idiotic original statement.
Don’t make the idiotic original statement – and @realDonaldTrump and no one else will have anything to which to respond.
Man, the Congressional Hamas Caucus is a blast. https://t.co/g6Agnf2wmE
