A 9/11 survivor attacked four Democratic congresswomen known as the Squad at a ceremony to remember those killed in the 2001 terrorist attacks.
At an annual ceremony in New York, the man interrupted the reading of victims’ names to go on a rant about Democratic Reps. Ilhan Omar (MN), Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY), Ayanna Pressley (MA) and Rashida Tlaib (MI).
The man said that he was at the ceremony to honor his mother, but his shirt referenced a quote from Omar — “some people did something” — that critics say diminishes the 9/11 attacks. The man’s hat indicated that he is a member of the group Facebook Apostles.
“‘Some people did something,’ said a freshman congresswoman from Minnesota,” the man remarked. “Today I am here to tell you exactly who did what to whom.”
“We know objectively, there is no uncertainty about that,” he continued. “Why your confusion?”
“Our nation’s founding on Judeo-Christian principles were attacked,” the man added. “That’s what some people did! Got that now? We are here today, Congresswoman, to tell you and the Squad just who did what to whom. Show respect in honoring them, please. American patriotism and your position demand it.”
“For God and country,” he concluded, pointing to his “Apostles” hat. “Amen.”

Trump is already making up conspiracy theories about voter fraud — and it’ll only get worse
The election is eight months away, but President Donald Trump is already crying foul.
Bloomberg News wrote Sunday that Trump is already working to undermine the American electoral process by attacking the Democratic presidential primary.
"Indeed, his campaign, with the full support of the Republican Party, is already waging a vigorous crusade to destroy his opposition. No, it's not Joe Biden, who inspired Trump's shakedown of Ukraine. Trump's gunning for bigger game: democracy itself," wrote Francis Wilkinson for Bloomberg.
READ IT: More than 1,100 former US Department of Justice officials tell Bill Barr to resign now
More than 1,100 former US Department of Justice officials called on Attorney General William P. Barr on Sunday to step down after he intervened last week to lower the Justice Department’s sentencing recommendation for President Trump’s longtime friend and political crony Roger J. Stone Jr.
“It is unheard of for the Department’s top leaders to overrule line prosecutors, who are following established policies, in order to give preferential treatment to a close associate of the President, as Attorney General Barr did in the Stone case,” wrote the former Justice Department attorneys in their Sunday letter. “It is even more outrageous for the Attorney General to intervene as he did here — after the President publicly condemned the sentencing recommendation that line prosecutors had already filed in court.”
Trump campaign forced to delete #Daytona500 Air Force One photo because it was from 15 years ago
Another oops moment happened for President Donald Trump's campaign manager stole George W. Bush's photo from the Daytona 500 in 2004.
Tweeting Sunday, Brad Parscale proclaimed, "[email protected] won the #Daytona500 before the race even started."
Except, it wasn't him. As many people pointed out, the image was from 16 years ago by photographer Jonathan Ferrey, CNN reported. Parscale was forced to delete it and tweet it out again with an underwhelming photo.
