(Washington Examiner) Former White House press secretary Ari Fleischer railed against Rep. Ilhan Omar for comments she made in response to criticism from the son of a 9/11 victim.
"This is all in the context of her statement that 'some people did something,' which is how she described the attacks on our country on Sept. 11," Fleischer said Monday on Fox News' America's Newsroom. "She was asked on Face the Nation about people finding that offensive. She didn’t take back her words. She didn’t say she was sorry, she said 'some people did something.' She made Sept. 11 all about what she was feeling," he said, later adding, "I find her lack of explanation for her statement about 'some people did something' to be terribly troubling still. She doesn’t get how offensive what she said was."
"What happened was we were attacked by radical Islamic terrorists, and her failure to say that is the beginning of her problem. That's the original sin here that she still won't atone for," Fleischer continued. He then called Omar "too much of a radical" at heart.
