"In 2018, right-wing extremists were behind nearly ALL US domestic terrorist killings".

The remarks created a firestorm among Republicans, with Crenshaw particularly outspoken.

Rendell also believes that Omar should have been condemned because of anti-Semitic tweets.

Marie Harf, a Fox News commentator and former senior adviser to Secretary of State John Kerry during the Obama administration, conceded by saying that Ocasio-Cortez and the other freshman Democrats were a "hard set of cats to herd".

Omar delivered the keynote speech at a fundraiser for the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) on March 23 where she was recorded describing the September 11 attacks as merely an event where "some people did something".

Ocasio-Cortez's office pointed McClatchy to a New York Daily News interview with a retired New York firefighter who survived 9/11 and told the newspaper that Crenshaw had snubbed him as he lobbied for renewing the 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund.

After 11 years, Woods found himself atop the leaderboard in a major, winning the 2019 Masters in Augusta, Ga.by one stroke. He scooped up 10-year-old Charlie , born a year after Woods won his 14th major at Torrey Pines in the 2008 U.S Open.

"For our colleagues to be silent is to be complicit in the outright, unsafe targeting of a member of Congress".

"So here you go, you guys are breaking news. I haven't endorsed anybody, but I'm very supportive of Bernie", Ocasio-Cortez said, adding, "I also think what Elizabeth Warren has been bringing to the table is ... truly remarkable, truly remarkable and transformational". "I don't think it's out of line to simply call that out and criticize it". "That's not what happened and we should come together and take note of that".

Crenshaw had initially commented that Omar was the "First member of Congress to ever describe terrorists who killed thousands of Americans on 9/11 as 'some people who did something, '" which he called "unbelievable".

"It is patently obvious that @IlhanMN wasn't trying to downplay the 9/11 attacks".

The fierce realist wants people to consider the long-term considerations when making their selection, to go with someone who has a "track record". You have to say that this person is looking at me unusual, I am not comfortable with it, and I am going to talk to them and ask them why. After multiple surgeries, Crenshaw retained sight in his left eye and went on to deploy two more times.
