Barr to AOC: Apologize before you come to Kentucky

The Texas Rep. jumped to his Twitter account on April 9 to slam Omar saying, "First Member of Congress to ever describe terrorists who killed thousands of Americans on 9/11 as 'some people who did something.' Unbelievable".

Ocascio-Cortez made clear that she "will support whoever the Democratic nominee is", but was less than excited by a potential Biden run.

In a letter Friday to the New York Democrat, Barr said her recent comments about Crenshaw "demonstrate a lack of civility that is becoming far too common in the U.S. House of Representatives".

Quick to defend her friend, the NY lawmaker accused Crenshaw of taking Omar's remarks out of context and attacked him for not co-sponsoring the 9/11 Victim's Compensation Fund.

It's an especially fraught issue for Ocasio-Cortez, whose congressional district spans parts of the two teams' home boroughs, the Bronx and Queens.

Stepping into the dustup, Ocasio-Cortez tweeted: "In 2018, right-wing extremists were behind nearly ALL US domestic terrorist killings".

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi reiterates her backing for Joe Biden despite kissing-touching controversy and takes another swipe at Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

"So here you go, you guys are breaking news".

The September 11th Victim Compensation Fund was created in the wake of the 9/11 attacks but is due to expire in December 2020 without additional authorization from Congress.

"I just want to be most useful and I'm not trying to kind of impose some personal ambition", Ocasio-Cortez said.

Ocasio-Cortez is coming under fire from Republicans for asking via Twitter why Crenshaw, a veteran of the Afghanistan war, doesn't "do something" about domestic terrorists. Then-President Barack Obama vetoed the bill and the Republican-controlled House and Senate voted to overrule Obama's veto, the first override of a veto that happened during his administration.

The Daily Caller notes that the 9/11 Victim's Compensation Fund has not been voted on yet, and Crenshaw does not appear to have expressed opposition to it.

Omar has called for the complete defunding of the Department of Homeland Security, which was created to protect the United States after the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
