Her squad is growing, and so is their influence in the democrat party. If JoeHarris wins, they will have an outsized influence on the way we live. At least she is willing to show you what is coming rather than hiding behind phone media.

Today should always be remembered...

As the day the current President went on the air to brag about owning the tallest building in NYC.

It's funny that people would make a thread about the stupid thing Omars said without remembering that Trump was bragging his building was the tallest after the attacks.

Gotta take “people” into account....a regular “Who’s Who.....”

Stole this from a friend.

Two days after the 9/11 attack. Trump was at Ground Zero with hundreds of workers that he paid of his own pocket to help find and identify victims.
This was much before Trump was even thinking of running for POTUS.
He's been a patriot to the country he loves for ever.

The above is a verifiable lie.

That was before his administration siphoned almost 4 million from the first responder fund then?

This is like the "you didn't build that" manufactured scandal: violently ripping a few words out of a much larger statement in order to create a false impression of what she said.

In other words, every right wing faux outrage ever.

There is no record of Trump doing that.

Don't concede anything from that post. There is zero evidence that Trump ever went to Ground Zero after the attacks, nor is there any evidence he "hired hundred of workers paid out of his own pocket".

If this story is true. Even if it is, Trump has always been savvy about how the press can benefit him. This would've happened back when he was a New York democrat, mind you.

Well if there's one thing the Trumpeteers and Cultists love, it's lies that promote the Glory of the Dear Leader.

Was Donald Trump at Ground Zero Searching for Survivors Two Days After 9/11 with Workers He Paid For?

Snopes says it's unproven.

President Trump described it a little differently during a speech at the Pentagon on Sept. 11, 2019, saying he went down to Ground Zero on the day of the attacks “with men who worked for me to try to help in any little way that we could.”

Trump’s statements were vague, so they didn’t provide any specifics that would help verify who the men he referenced were, what their relationship to him was, and whether he “paid for” their labor, making it difficult to tease out the accuracy of what he said. His claims about what he did and witnessed on the day terrorists flew jetliners into the World Trade Center buildings have been sources of confusion or consternation since the real estate mogul launched his bid to seek the presidency in 2015.

Richard Alles, a retired deputy chief with the New York City Fire Department (FDNY), who now serves as director of 9/11 community affairs for the law firm Barasch McGarry Salzman and Penson, told us that in all the hours, days and months he spent at Ground Zero as an FDNY battalion chief starting 20 minutes after the buildings collapsed, he never witnessed a large group of workers hired by Trump at the site helping with search and rescue. “This is the first I’m hearing of it,” Alles told us by phone. “There would have been no need for that. Between police, fire and the construction crews, we had it all covered.”

The guy who had magical bone spurs that kept him out of Vietnam but he can't remember which foot it affected, the man who can't walk down a ramp unassisted, the man who thinks that American POW's are laughable, the guy who thinks fallen American soldiers were losers and suckers DEFINITELY sounds like the kinda guy who would have dropped everything and gone straight into the fray after 9/11!

Totes.

He probably had them removing gold teeth.

article from last year

Trump again said he helped at ground zero immediately following the 9/11 attacks

Trump has made several versions of this claim in the past but there is a lack of evidence that Trump helped or hired people to help on the days following the terrorist attack.

Richard Alles, who was the New York Fire Department battalion chief during the Sept. 11 attack, has repeatedly said that he does not remember Trump having a presence at ground zero.

During an interview with the New York Times, Alles said that despite spending several months at the ground zero site, he "never witnessed" Trump there.

"He was a private citizen at the time. I don’t know what kind of role he could have possibly played," Alles told the Times in July.

There are, however, a couple of photos and interviews that show Trump near ground zero days after the attacks.

Trump was several blocks from ground zero just two days after the attack, where he did an interview with a German news station. In the interview, the business mogul then asserted that he had "a lot of men down" there.

"We have over 100, another 125 coming," he said at the time.

There is also an image of Trump outside the New York Stock Exchange on Sept. 18, 2001, a week from the attacks.

But there is still no evidence that Trump helped at ground zero in the immediate aftermath of the attacks.

Well, her leader (Ms. Nancy) was equally nonchalant about vandalism. Remember when she blithely excused toppling statues with "People will do things"?

Wait until you see what Ms. Omar & Ms. Nancy have in store for our nation starting in January.

Some people who voted for the Biden-Harris-BLM ticket are going to rue the day.

Unfortunately, ALL of us are going to suffer.
