Rep. Frederica Wilson now says the attack in Niger that left four American soldiers dead is the Trump administration’s version of Benghazi. She is not alone in making that absurd claim.
Niger is @realDonaldTrump's Benghazi. He needs to own it.

Rep. Wilson needs to own several things.
First, as has been pointed out, the situation in Niger is not comparable to what happened in Benghazi, especially the lies given by the Obama administration for the purpose of those deaths.
Let me know when Trump jails a YouTube video maker to deflect blame away form his response, and then we can make this comparison. https://t.co/NR46u4O4Uk

Actually, no it isn't. Obama sent them there, not Trump. Own your mistakes. You're a disgrace and embarrassment. https://t.co/xnl40AGkik

It is also very interesting to see Rep. Wilson and other Dems FINALLY admit just how scandalous the Obama administration’s handling of the Benghazi attack actually was.
odd. because Democrats spent a lot of time insisting that Benghazi, while tragic, was highly politicized and overblown. https://t.co/Tws9CpeTqk

I thought nothing bad happened in Benghazi. You are completely incoherent. https://t.co/wszavQkPFg

You've got to be f-ing kidding me
Liberals like her who outright ignored and even made sick jokes about it don’t get to invoke Benghazi https://t.co/YgivaPdr4K

The people pushing this narrative make it easy to identify Democrats with iffy logical reasoning skills. https://t.co/k89QQd3gxO

Let’s not let history get in the way of trying to politicize a tragic situation.
