Add celebrity socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to the list of libs furious at President Trump over the video we told you about earlier where he posted criticizing Rep. Ilhan Omar over her 9/11 comments:
Members of Congress have a duty to respond to the President’s explicit attack today.@IlhanMN’s life is in danger. For our colleagues to be silent is to be complicit in the outright, dangerous targeting of a member of Congress.
We must speak out.

A Nazi analogy from a Dem. How original:
Oh look, a misused Nazi comparison. How edgy.

And AOC doesn’t get how offensive this is:
Unbelievable. She is comparing Trump posting a video quoting Omar's own words to the Holocaust.
Despicable and incredibly offensive, especially to those of us whose families were actually impacted by those words. https://t.co/7TH59Z4eI5

They really are going to dig in on this one, aren’t they?
He called her out for her atrocious 9/11 comment
Is she somehow immune from criticism?
How many massively more inflammatory things have you & your crew said about @realDonaldTrump ?

It’s obvious AOC is trying to silence her critics and we all see it:
Omar is being targeted for criticism, not for violence. The conflation of the two is a transparent attempt to silence criticism: https://t.co/4njYOZ267L

Of note, Nancy Pelosi dodged on her comments earlier today:
Speaker Nancy Pelosi: "I haven't had the opportunity to speak with [Rep. Ilhan Omar] to see the nature of her comment and, as is my custom with my colleagues, I call them in before I call them out so I'll look forward to hearing from her." pic.twitter.com/5A6Zo9n6KJ

There is not enough popcorn in the world if AOC starts going after Dems in Congress if they don’t back her up on this:
Imagine this Sanders statement will again kick off a wave of 2020 Dem responses in support of Ilhan Omar. Why it's coming from 2020ers, and not Dem congressional leadership, is the question worth asking https://t.co/s06tjXbaiJ
