The fallout from Rep. Ilhan Omar’s 9/11 comments have seemingly split the United States down lines that would have been unthinkable just 10 years ago.
Conservatives, Republicans, and everyday Americans rallied against Omar’s downplaying of the deadliest terror attacks on U.S. soil as “some people did something.”
President - Donald - Trump - Gate - Omar
President Donald Trump himself roared out of the gate, slamming Omar with a tweet containing footage of the horrific attacks spliced with her speech.

First of all, both of these questions seem dangerously loaded.
Question - Ball - Trump - Camp - Court
The first question throws the ball in the Trump camp’s court, blaming him for the “horrible” images included in the tweet as if he’s just posting them without any reason.
The second is even worse: If Trump is...
