This may well be one of the saddest, least self-aware tweets we have seen … ever.
Kirsten Gillibrand using her status as a ‘senator who represents 9/11 victims’ to shame Trump for calling Omar out over her thoughtless 9/11 comments is Hillary-level stupid. And we all know what happened to Hillary’s campaign.
She really should have stopped after the word ‘pain’ in this tweet but oh no.
As a Senator who represents 9/11 victims, I can't accept any minimizing of that pain. But Trump's dangerous rhetoric against @IlhanMN is disgusting. It’s a false choice to suggest we can’t fight terrorism and reject Islamophobic hate at once—a president should do both.

Imagine being a 9/11 victim and seeing your senator defending someone for making light of the largest terror attack EVER on American soil.
Gillibrand wins no friends with this tweet. https://t.co/ck8fu5BwCa

Not a damn one.
Be just a tad more specific about disavowing Omar and you’d maybe be able to actually attract some supporters. Most people especially democrats don’t like her or trump, and if you’re open about representing that it might actually resonate

As the owner of my own foot, I can't accept any minimizing the pain when stubbing my toe. But wearing shoes indoors is disgusting. It's a false choice to suggest we can't protect our feet and be barefoot at once–you have to be careful where you step

As a first responder in the state of ny who has brothers and sisters. That died in that tragic incident I support @realDonaldTrump and think Omar is too casual. She plays the victim if she’s gonna be a representative she needs to grow up. And realize she’s lucky to be here

That right there completely sums up why I won’t be voting for you.

Man I can't believe you were my early favorite.

So Kirsten managed to piss everyone off with this tweet. She made the Right angry because she tried using victims of 9/11 to slam the president and she made the Left angry because they think she said Ilhan minimized 9/11.
Maybe she should just stick with being confused about how to eat fried chicken.
