Beto Goes Off DEEP END, Claims Trump Put Omar’s Life In ‘DANGER’ By Using Her OWN WORDS Against Her

Democratic presidential candidate Robert “Beto” O’Rourke has gone off the deep end and is claiming that President Donald Trump has put Rep. Ilhan Omar’s life in danger by using her own words against her.

While speaking at a campaign event in Virginia, O’Rourke was discussing his 2020 presidential campaign and raging against Trump’s administration.

But then he went on a tangent about Omar and defended her for describing the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks as “some people did something.”

“This latest incitement to hatred and violence, posting a video the President on his own Twitter account, not re-tweeted, but formulated by his own team, that conflates a Muslim member of Congress, representative Ilhan Omar, duly elected by her constituents in Minnesota, with the terrorists who perpetrated the attack on 9/11,” O’Rourke said.

He was referring to Trump uploading a video clip of Omar making her comments followed by images of the Twin Towers falling after terrorist crashed planes into them.

But so are the lives of other Muslims in this country. You’ve got to really search Western democratic history for another country that sought to exclude all people of one religion or to describe them as inherently dangerous to the future of that country,” he said.

“You don’t get kids in cages until you start talking about them in that way. You dehumanize them, so it is okay for those public officials to do those things they justified in their mind because the President said so,” O’Rourke shouted.

O’Rourke then implied the U.S. cannot survive if Trump gets elected to a second term in office in 2020.

“So, you ask a really critical question: if there are four more years of Donald Trump, can we recover, can we maintain this country and our democracy?” O’Rourke said.

He added: “So we make the agreement that we’re going to do everything in our power not only to win the nomination but to do so in a way that compromises no one else’s ability to defeat Donald Trump in November of 2020.”

Several Twitter users took issue with O’Rourke’s statement and criticized him for claiming Trump was putting Omar in danger by using her own words against her.

Omar came under fire earlier this month for describing the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks as “some people did something.”

Late last week, Trump shared a video to his Twitter account that showed Omar making her comments at an event last month for the Council on American–Islamic Relations.

Omar described 9/11 as “some people did something” rather than saying a group of al Qaeda terrorists hijacked four airplanes, ran two of them into the Twin Towers, and killed just shy of 3,000 innocent Americans.
