Rashida Tlaib defends Ilhan Omar’s ‘some people did something’ 9/11 remarks

Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., has jumped to the defense of her under fire fellow freshman Democrat Ilhan Omar, saying Thursday her comment in reference to 9/11 has been wildly taken out of context.

Omar, D-Minn., is facing backlash after a speech at a Muslim rights group’s event in which she described the September 11, 2001, terror attacks as “some people did something”.

The comment has drawn ire from the likes of Rep. Dan Crenshaw, R-Tx, and the New York Post, which published a dramatic front page Thursday with an infamous photo of New York City’s Twin Towers on fire on the day of the attacks.

The page read: “Here’s your something: 2,977 people dead by terrorism.”
