Cory Booker: Ilhan Omar Doesn’t Deserve Hate-Filled Attacks for What She Said

‘Years later, to see a president of the United States to use images of 9/11 in a vicious, crass, disgusting way’

EXCERPT:

BOOKER: “You know, I live in a community where we know folks who were killed, New Jerseyans were killed, friends of mine were killed in those towers. And in the aftermath of that you saw how our country united to put aside partisan differences, to deal with the challenges to America. Now, years later, to see a president of the United States to use images of 9/11 in a vicious, crass, disgusting way, that is so objectionable. That is so offensive. And this is what I mean about moral vandalism in our country that goes in the highest office. This is stoking hatred , stoking fears, pitting people against each other.”
BRENNAN: “Are you offended by the Congresswoman’s language, ‘Some people did something’?”
BOOKER: “I think that what she is experiencing right now, she does not deserve — from what she said in her speech, she does not deserve the kind of vicious, hate-filled attacks that she’s experiencing, threats on her life, right now. We all as Americans should say that is outrageous and unacceptable. And what Donald Trump is doing is he is making life dangerous not just for her, but for other Muslim Americans.”
